Current Weight:(15 Jul 08) 129.0 lb
Goal Weight:115.0 lb
following: The South Beach Diet
performance: losing 0.2 lb a week

I am a 24 year old practicing architect and Ballroom dance instructor. You'd think that since I work from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm I'd have trouble keeping the pounds on. So untrue. I skip meals. Drink soda so the carbonation will curb my hunger and break down around 11:00 and just eat eat eat. Then I sleep. So, 30 pounds later I can't recognize my former self. No more. I am making a change, one steady meal at a time.

Unhealthy dieting vs healthy eating - how do you get the right balance?
Hi Juno. It is most definitely something that is very confusing, and I too worry about some of those dieters out there. Especially as women, we need to keep that calcium intake up. Don't want to be the skinny frail woman who breaks when you touch her.

And, without intending offense, I too think the Atkins plan has desirable outcome, but the effects of such a poorly balanced diet can be devastating. I simply wasn't up for the risk of such a plan.

But, losing more than two pounds each week can be possible if your diet remains healthy. I will give the benefit of the doubt that people losing more aren't simply starving themselves. If you keep your nutrition values up, caloric counts low, and your activity level high, it is definitely possible to spark some substantial losses. But again, keeping a HEALTHY balance is the key. Also, keep in mind, sodium causes water retention (think: how bloated you feel after a good chinese meal, which can be EXTREMELY high in sodium), and most healthy dieters (because of processed food elimination) tend to greatly reduce their sodium intake. So, a lot of weight lost could be water.

What's Your Motivation...?
My motivation is my newest latin competition outfit. It can make a slender figure look worse...I want to wear it and have confidence to dance my heart out and not worry about how it cuts into my waste. Ahhh that will be the day. Very Happy

I NEED A BUDDY
I'm new to fatsecret, but ready to get started and (hopefully) link up with a couple of cool cats to keep on track.

I am 24, busy as an architect and ballroom dance instructor, and my hectic schedule leads to terrible late night junk binges. No more.

I have about 25 pounds to lose, but to be honest weight isn't my goal, it's my size and shape. As my family always says, we are a group of rounds in a world of oblongs. Well, I personally am ready to be an oblong. Anyone else?Very Happy
