I'm a starving artist, but I intentionally limit my caloric intake to maintain a svelte appearance. My one true career love...writing. I'm essentially a weirdo...looks are deceiving...I'm intelligent, attractive (ok, guys tell me I'm hot, but humility goes much farther), overeducated and desperately frustrated with the work scene. Why aren't there colonies for writers who weren't born with a silver spoon? A petty little thing stands between me and an intense writing career - money. Oh, how ironic and cursed the lot of us are. I'm working on a novel but life keeps intruding, bills keep demanding my indentured servitude. How to overcome, triumph...not to worry...the tale isn't finished yet.

Diet Pop...Your Opinion, Please!!!
Finally, somebody mentioned alcohol, lol!!! I'm wondering if anybody could recommend a low calorie drink that complements whiskey. I can't stomach whiskey straight. I prefer it diluted with a low-calorie drink. I've always had whiskey with diet Pepsi and it's a delicious combo to me. Any ideas you've actually tried would be appreciated!

Exercising Online
I'll vouch for YouTube, Netflix and your local library (though the selection might be limited). Leslie Sansone videos are a great place to start. I'll vouch for that too! Once you learn the basic moves, you can turn down the volume and play music of your own choosing. I actually get a better workout with those tapes. I up the ante by working my upper body with 5 lb. weights in each hand while I work out.

Does calorie count work?
I count calories. Everything I eat gets logged at FS. When you know your RDI, you can subtract 500 calories from it, which should equal one pound of weight loss per week. If you add exercise, you increase the amount of weight you could lose. It's that simple and based on that plan (keeping track of caloric intake plus regular exercise), you will lose weight. If you don't or can't, maybe you should see a doctor to rule out medical issues like hypothyroidism, diabetes or metabolic syndrome. My best wishes to you.

Frustrated, but never hungry
I also tried Atkins but I felt weak and tired and hated all the can't-haves. I'd always used the calorie counting "method" and limited my intake. I lost weight successfully, and then some. I also gave up processed foods and THAT I think is key to keeping the weight off. I went through a pig-out stage for several months and didn't exercise and I only gained back half the weight. It's like my body had been rewired to a lower weight. Since I've been calorie counting again, I eat mainly proteins and low-carbs as I learned that important habit from Atkins, and it keeps my carb cravings at bay. I can't do dieting without counting calories. Even when I'm on a fruit/veggie/lean meat kick and not counting calories, I won't gain weight no matter how much I eat, but I don't lose weight either. I need to feel in control of how much is going in. That way there's always room for a Snickers bar or small bag of chips if I ever miss those indulgences. I'm glad I don't for now!

Really proud of myself again today !!
That's wonderful, Kimzie77! It's always an ego boost when we resist temptation. I for one have yet to figure out how to say no thanks to my boyfriend's mom's Sunday deserts! Every Sunday, I end up giving in, eating two to three servings and feeling guilty later. I call her a saboteur. She and her husband are fantastic cooks! But they're merciless. Thank goodness my boyfriend canceled dinner tonight! Keep your nose pinched and your eyes closed when you come in contact with tempting food! Or do a time-out...go outside and do something distracting for fifteen minutes. Seperate yourself for a period of time and see if that helps. That's what I plan to start doing. It actually worked the time I did it. After that, it was, "I'll take a piece home, thanks." Best wishes to you!
