Start Weight:(07 Apr 12) 243.0 lb
Current Weight:(20 Feb 14) 194.6 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: HCB's own diet
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

I am a 59 year old woman with the hope of reducing my weight for my health and to meet my fitness goals. Up until I was about 45 years old, I exercised regularly and watched all my food choices. In fact. when I was 40 years old, I was in the best condition. This was an accomplishment since I had been an overweight kid, and battled weight off and on for most of my adult life.

Then, menopause hit and I started a more sedentary job...and I also have hypothyroid! I just slowed down and didn't seem to care anymore.

I have done organized programs at the gym, and food programs. I tend to do well for a while until I hit the dreaded plateau...and then I am discouraged and give up. I WILL NOT give up this time.

My progress photos are displayed below.

If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

Resting
Everything sort has to add up to 24 hours - so you can increase in another area to reduce the resting.

Hello, Not exactly new
Aww - I am sorry people on MFP were not nice. People here are not judgmental...I love Classic Coke and have it ONCE in a blue moon as a treat so I know what you are up against. One can per day is great..eventually it will be gone...if that rs your goal. Otherwise, portion control is good, too.

Need HELP with ratio of carbs, fats, protein
I shoot for 40-50% protein (150grams for my weight), less than 30% carbs (does not always work when trying to get 30-40 grams of fiber daily) and the balance in healthy fats of nuts, olive oil, avocado, etc.

Why would you eat nuts?
Raw almonds are a staple for me - they have fiber, protein and healthy fat! Just a few ( like 10 or 12 almonds )can take away hunger immediately!
