My TOPS chapter - what a great group of people. It's easy to let myself down, but I just hate going to a meeting and letting them down. I would say having support from people who get it is most important so that includes this website as well.

Controlling the portions is a good way to lose weight...for example eat 1/3 of chocolate = 145 kcal than the whole chocolate = 540kcalWink

The fact that I want to be healthy for my husband, son and soon to be baby girl is the thing that has helped me the most with weight loss..

This totally helps me too! If I get too hungry I will over eat like there is no tomorrow.

Yeah. Knowing how many calories are in junk foods made me stop eating them.

It also helped me re-invent my favorite recipes so they are a lot healthier. I sat down and really looked at how much nutritional value vs. calories, cholestral, fat each ingredient is contributing.

Cheers!

So far everything everyone's written is spot on...tracking foods, knowing the calories of what goes in the pie-hole, planning, exercising, being nice to thyself, mind-set...

I've also found a huge assist in the company of others going through the same struggle(s). Seeing people who experience success is awesome and serves to reinforce why, day in and day out, we sweat, burn, weigh-in, drive ourselves, say NO to that _________ (fill in the blank), et cetera.

Restricting carbs, without a doubt. I have lost 139 pounds over the past 9 years and at first I was calorie counting, doing the 'eat less, exercise more' thing. Great way to go about it, and it works. But I got 'stuck' at 13 and a half stone some time back so used a VCLD to kick start losses. This introduced me to carb restriction. I struggled on the VLCD but managed to lose 3 stones that way, on and off. Then I decided to give veggie Atkins a serious go.

This has proved to be a revelation. No more desperate food cravings. I am calm around food. Relaxed, not-panic filled and fearful.
It's wonderful.

A number of things have helped me loose my first 20 lbs, but I've got a lot left to go!

Counting calories, WORKING OUT at least 5x a week, keeping a food diary and workout log, sleeping well, and drinking A LOT of water... also wonderful and supportive website communities like FatSecret & Calorie Count!

Reminding myself that food is only fuel for my body. You wouldn't put in crappy diesel fuel into a nice Porsche. You will want to make sure you have the best of the best so you use Premium even tho it may cost more it will make sure your car stays healthy. You can eat candy bars, junk food, bugers, and fries, but its crappy fuel for your body. You want to make sure your eating healthy (more expensive health foods) and your body will let you know how much it appreciates the proper fuel.

Where is everyone from?
Shropshire, England, UK. Very rural. We have access to a small convenience store, but most food is delivered from the Tesco supermarket chain. Meat and other seasonals come from the village butcher.
