following: kitty-eared-girl's own diet
performance: losing 0.3 lb a week

I'm a 30 year old who has struggled with weight for most of my life. I had the great opportunity to study abroad in Tokyo for four months in 2009, and dropped from 198 to 186. I ended up gaining most of that back within a year of coming back to the US.

Shortly after that, I moved out on my own which allowed me better control over what was in my fridge and how I spent my free time. Still a work-in-progress, I find myself grateful everyday for the ability to make my own choices and for the support system I have in my life.

Since joining FS back in Oct 2011, I have found the best diet for me is to calorie count, and watch my portion sizes. That, coupled with regular exercise has boosted my mood and my overall health. Each day brings a new set of challenges and new inspirations around every corner.

"approved foods"? How are they defining "approved foods"?

LADIES - Buying Bras while Losing Weight
Deb_N wrote:
Can't you just adjust the hooks? I was using an extender on my bras and when I lost weight I just didn't use the extender anymore. Then when I lost more weight, instead of hooking on the last hook I started using the first hook to make it even smaller. Will go to the dressing room to try on a smaller bra in privacy. I usually buy just one and if I like it I will buy more as I can afford it.

Its not just the fit around my ribs, but the cup size too. I get a slight gap in the actual cup part under my arms, but I get what you're talking about

LADIES - Buying Bras while Losing Weight
Does anyone have a go-to shop for bras while losing weight? I don't want to spend a fortune, but as we all know, a crappy bra makes anything worn over it look awful.

fluffyjo intro
Welcome! You've found a great community of support for the journey you've just embarked on. Unfortunately I don't think I'm going to be of great help as far as the diet is concerned because I'm quite picky when it comes to veggies. BUT! I'd highly suggest looking through the "Food and Recipes" and "Special Dieting Situations" forums for better assistance Smile
