following: Asarver's own diet
performance: losing 1.2 lb a week

My name is Ashley and I'm currently 21 years old and 5' 4". I've been on fatsecret now for over a year, and I've managed to lose a little over 30 pounds since May of 2012. However, I've gained a little bit of it back, and am struggling with trying to reach that ultimate goal.

I was active during the summer of 2013, and am really looking forward to getting back into the routine next (and my last!) semester at school. I ran my first 5k in August with a time of 33:58, so I'm really looking forward to getting under 30 minutes. I'm also getting married next year, and I definitely cannot gain any more weight!

My ultimate goal is to be between 120 and 125 lbs, so I'm still working on it. I've been watching my calories, and just trying to be more active. I must say I'm a little scared to start maintenance because I am a binge eater in a sense. If I'm around food, I just can't help but eat and eat and eat (It's really bad when I go to my parent's house).

New Mini Goals:

January 11, 2014 - 135 lbs
Febuary 15, 2014 - 130 lbs
March 22, 2014 - 125 lbs

There on after, toning up my stomach and maintaining my weight. Let's do this!

A month is a plateau, not 3 days! And it might be a little unhealthy (emotionally) to be weighing yourself every day. Try once a week.

So, oddly enough, I've gotten this to work on my tablet, which runs Chrome? Maybe it's cookie related?

I don‘t drink tea. As far as boosting, if you've been losing weight and you are plateau-ing, changing it up. If you haven't started yet, there is no boost. You just have to start.

Calorie counting is just finding a number suitable for you to be your maximum intake of calories for the day. For me, it's 1200 calories a day (I've been told personally not to go under 1000, but I've heard many argue not under 1200). Drinking water will boost weight loss if you are eliminating other drinks. Why waste your calories on liquids that don't really fill you up? You're supposed to drink about half your body weight (in lbs) in oz. I weight 130, so I should be drinking at least 65 oz of water a day. It helps you stay hydrated, and keeps your body from holding onto too much water (if you eat a lot of sodium, you should drink more water). As far as drinking tea goes, they say it boosts your weight loss, but I've read that it really only helps by about 30 to 50 calories a day. There is no magic fix for losing weight, it's watching what you eat.

I've used every browser imaginable to do this. And Chrome is my main browser. It's not the browsers issue.
