Start Weight:(12 Apr 12) 162.0 lb
Current Weight:(12 Nov 13) 141.1 lb
Goal Weight:136.7 lb
following: schmetterling34's own diet
performance: Steady

I am 46, living in england, on & off since 1990, but born & raised in germany. I always had a pretty active life, i do love exercise, even trying to become a fitness instructor myself( just not finding the the time to study properly), but since i have been here I have learned a lot about what i eat, which isn't that bad....just way too much!!! LOL
so I am here to keep an eye on that & slowly but hopefully steady will go lower(lighter) in time! :)

Update 23/08/2012

Well I have reached my goal, slowly & steady :)
I will keep on living the way I have done the past 4 1/2 month, maybe a little less strict, certainly without tracking from now on, unless the weight creeps up again.
In time I might lower my goal a little, but for now I am happy with what I have achieved & aim to maintain this :)

Update 8/05/13

So much for reaching my goal: I did gain a few kilos back, but at the same time i tweaked how I eat & started weightlifting. I am amazed how strong I have grown, how lean I can look. I have learned to accept that strong lean muscles are heavier, not saying there isn't any more room for improvement :)

kitchen question, totally off topic
I have a big tin with plasters and various pills and multivitamins and another tin with spare bulbs and batteries up there Smile

Does anyone here live the 80/10/10 lifestyle? My daughter is sort of following it and I have also startet to eat a lot more raw. Eating so much sweet and ripe fruit has really curbed my cravings for chocolate.
I have although startet reading a book about it and a lot of things in it make sense to me. Hey I feed my dogs a raw natural diet and they thrive. BUT I am still sceptical. I would love to hear from people who follow it and about your experience. I have noticed that my digestive track is so much happier and I seem to have tons of energy and I sleep really well.

Dairy Intolerance
Thank you so much for your responses. I was totally dairy free for 3 weeks. I must say that tastebuds get used to a lot of things: I do like black coffee now! and then I had a tiny little ice cream. OH BOY, I had to stay close to a certain little room most of the day. Overall I do feel better, less bloated. So for now I simply avoid dairy.

Dairy Intolerance
I am just trying to figure out if I am dairy intolerant. I have all the classic signs: constipation followed by the runs mingled with bloating and a lot of gas Rolling Eyes

So now I am cutting out anything dairy as much as possible but I do wonder if the splash of milk in my 1 coffee a day really makes a difference? Or should I invest in a non-dairy coffee creamer? I have banned all the yogurts, butter. I don't drink milk anyway. Is there anything else obvious I need to look out for? I do read labels whenever I remember Wink
