Current Weight:(20 May 15) 274.4 lb
Goal Weight:180.0 lb
following: Calorie Count
performance: gaining 0.8 lb a week

I am 31 years old, 5'4" tall. Starting weight in June 2011 was 284.8 (highest weight ever) Lost 80 pounds as a stay at home mom/student, and so far have gained 40 pounds of it back.

My goal is to lose Ten pounds a month with healthy diet and exercise. And learn to fit in healthy foods and fitness into my life now that I am no longer a stay at home mom. Losing weight was so easy when I had all the time in the world to do it and nothing interfered with my routine. Now I work contingent at a hospital, which means my hours are not always the same and I struggling to get back into a routine.

First goal: 210 (back to wear I was a year ago)

Second goal: Finally get under 200 pounds.

Third goal 175 (BMI 30, healthy weight to be a living organ donor)

4th and final goal is to keep the weight off forever! This will always be a struggle, but I will never give up.

Help - Advice - ANYTHING?!?! Doctor's scales vs. Home scales - Please tell me I've actually lost wei
How often do you weight yourself at home? If you step on the scale and then step off, and step back on does it give you the same reading? or does it fluctuate? If it gives the same reading then its probably fine, if it changes you need a new scale. In my experience, my weight is always a few pounds higher at the doctor because I am wearing all my clothes.

Can I do brief exercise throughout the day to loose weight?
Any extra activity will help you burn a little extra calories through the day. It may not make the pounds fall off, but if thats all you can do, its better than nothing. And Think about your health and not just losing weight. Being more active is good for your body. So keep taking those small steps and maybe eventually they will lead to bigger ones, and a healthy active lifestyle.

If you want to get rid of extra fluid, drink more water.

To post or not to post
I workout everyday and I never feel the need to post it on Facebook. I think you should post whatever you want, but I also think its annoying when people constantly post about going to the gym. If you do it everyday, why do you need to tell the world about it? To me it's like the person who posts it is bragging. I don't mention my weight loss at all because its more fun to surprise people when I see them in person.

Its annoying in general when people post the same things all the time. Like that they have a headache or a cold, or their work schedule.

But with all that said. Don't worry about annoying other people. Its your facebook-post what you want.

loose weight from back??
You can't spot reduce. There is nothing you can do to make the weight come off your back faster, but keep doing what you are doing and it WILL come off eventually.
