following: kkd1125's own diet
performance: gaining 1.0 lb a week

I'm married, just celebrated 20 years, with 2 kids (son age 15 and daughter age 12). I work full time in advertising/marketing in Southern California. I have had a lifetime struggle with weight, seriously, since about age 7 or 8. I'm so tired of the battle and feeling like I'm missing so much of life that's out there. My 2013 goal was to reach and exceed my lowest weight as an adult that I can remember (235 lbs., which was 20 years ago).

I met and exceeded my 2013 goal by losing 50 lbs. by mid November. I also conquered my high blood pressure and my doctor took me off medication in September 2013 that I had been on for over 11 years. I was able to buy a pair of jeans in size 16 which I haven't worn since the early 90's when I met my husband. I felt like 2013 was the year of finding ME, like I'd been a big slab of unshapely marble and now I'm sculpting out the me that I am supposed to be. Healthy eating and exercise has done wonders for me so far, and I can't wait to see how much healthier I can be in 2014!

Update: It's mid 2014 and I have not had too much success this year and even some gains, but I keep trying by getting back on track. Hoping to finish the year out stronger than it started!

Day 1 of the rest of my life!
Welcome! It sounds like you're off to a great start. Making small healthy changes, even one per week, will probably be more sustainable in the long run. Once you kick the soda/sugar, hopefully you can focus on making sure you get enough healthy, macro-balanced calories into your daily diet to help sustain slow, stable fat loss. Good luck to you!

Subway Salads
Their tuna salad has high calorie/fat content due to the mayonnaise. However, if it fits into your calorie/nutritional goal for the day then go for it. If not, switch to the chopped turkey or chicken breast.

LOSE vs. LOOSE
Ha ha! I may have wanted to have him for dinner, too, but then I heard that recording of the awful phone message to his daughter and decided against it.

mummydee, I also have the iPhone talk n text. Once I was asking my husband if he wanted to go to such-and-such restaurant for dinner and my phone translated to "We're having Alec Baldwin for dinner." Laughing

Feeling very bloated and PMSsy (my made up word), but the past 3 days I have been great with food and exercise. Looking forward to an on-track week ahead!
