Just joined yesterday and need to know what diet I should be doing....do I just follow the calorie amounts posted for my weight? Need to get rid of a belly. Just started on a thyroid medication that I think is helping a bit. Need to lose 12 pounds and not in a hurry...slower is always better !

Try to find a WOE that is something you can sustain and not feel deprived... I follow a low carb lifestyle because it works for me. I have never been a person that did well with moderation, quantity and quality is what I am all about! By cutting out my carbs I can eat a hearty meal and have satisying snacks, I am never hungry. Decide what type of plan you would like, counting calories, carbs, food combining, points just find one that you think you can make a lifestyle. Once you feel you have made the right choice for you, join a group and get all the help and advice you need to be a success.

Whatever works for you! I'm doing calorie counting.

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

I'm counting my calories too. I try to eat fairly healthy, but generally I eat what I feel like. I register EVERYTHING, and this keeps me in check. This way, weight loss is not as hard as you think, as long as you are motivated. Smile Enjoy your journey - it can be an amazing one!

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Hello!
Welcome, Kat. Just remember, although your primary care provider may be an M.D. or a D.O., they're not an R.D. (registered dietician) - many non-R.D.s throw the word "obese" around without ...
