- - - - May 2014 update - - - -

In 2010 I lost 30 pounds. In 2012 I gained 10 back, and over this past winter I added back another 12. Of the original 30 lost, 22 are back. I'm back on Fat Secret. It took me about two months last time... and my goal is to lose this 22 pounds in two months this time, too!

- - - - May 2010 update - - - -

I owe Fat Secret a lot of credit. This website provided me the tools I needed to overcome my weight problem. I lost 30 pounds in approximately two months, during January and February. It is now May and I've kept the weight off. Including during a lovely Florida vacation with my spouse, and during two fabulous "dining out" events that included ball gowns, free-flowing wine, and meals of many courses. I haven't been "true" to the site during maintenance; I tend to jump on or off the site when I feel the need for renewed discipline or when someone else I know joins and needs a friend.

Bowel Movements
Lots and lots of water, drank throught the day. Every day. This is the most important but somehow it ends up being the hardest to accomplish.. And a fiber supplement everyday, whether it be the powder you mix with water, a fiber bar, or they have fiber gummies! Good luck.

Cheese or Chocolate?
Chocolate. Especially dark chocolate. I don't eat much of it, but when I do... to nibble slowly and enjoy the taste as it melts in my mouth... definately chocolate!
Have a great day!

Ready to lose 15 pounds.
A tip that is helping me... shop only on the outside of the grocery store. Its where the healthiest foods are! Once you venture into the aisles, you hit all kinds of processed foods that are higher in calories and lower in nutrition. Your points (Or calories) go further if you are eating natural foods! Good luck.

There really is no secret to weight loss
To Adr58.

You said: "I reckon it's 50% psychology (determination and drive); 25% plan (calorie planning / counting) and 25% execution."

I couldn't agree more! I've tried to lose weight before, and the main difference between then and now is that I'm no longer "trying" but instead I made up my mind to "do". I am determined, I am driven. Not succeeding is NOT AN OPTION.

Go on the Offense!
Superbowl Sunday could be a difficult day, especially if you will watch the game with family and friends. So, take an offensive position NOW to prepare. Some suggestions:
1. Set your Game Plan: give yourself permission for what is allowable. Do it before you go. One beer? One plate of nachos? Enter it on your diet calendar before you head out.
2. Suit up for the day: wear something that shows off your success to date, or something a tad tight. Cinch the belt in!
3. Feel superior. As you maintain your control for the day, look around at the others in the room. Look at the quantity of what they are eating, drinking. Know that the next day they are going to hurt - whereas you'll be feeling strong and walking tall!
4. Win! Walk away at the end of the night knowing you set your plan, worked your plan, and won. Whohoo... we can do this!

Good luck, all.
