Hi! my name's Maheva, I am now 39 years old, living in Brussels. Joined in 2011, and reached my targets here of weight loss and fitness in about 11 months: from 81 kilos to 62 kilos, and running all short to longer races I could!
Then I let myself go...Put back 15 kilos on, in over a year! No one else to blame, except myself : diet out of control, less exercise...there you go!

So, 2014 : back in the game! And I'll do my best to keep it up longer this time round!

First Goal?
I could not agree more! Replacing the bad habits by heathier ones.

Although the mini-challenges of this challenge are scheduled to start only in 6 days, nothing stops you people from getting in the challenge mode and mood, and start watching your alcohol, your daily diet..

This week : part-walking home from the office every night...that's an extra 30 minutes exercise per day.

Do you guys think that my diet is healthy?
Hi Snow833; checked your profile out, and it appears we shared the same starting point. You are doing good, but it is a long journey, and your body needs to adapt - it is slower than your mind!

To chip in on the diet question : definitely you need to INCREASE your PROTEINS intake, from natural foods. Suggestion would also be to STOP those diet drinks / weight loss shakes; you do not need that.

I was like you before : hardly any proteins, surviving on processed sugary foods, which gave me a boost of energy to get going. It seems that you are replacing the bad sugars...with healthier ones, with all the fruit you're eating daily! But it might be excessive. The amount of food you eat is a lot, and I can understand that you feel full after each meal; so why not try to balance each meal by replacing a few pieces of fruit by some lean meat, fish, or low fat cheese ?

Good luck on this great challenge!

Wife is concerned
Wow! Lostear; I can only agree with some of the comments of other FS members here above: get rid of the empty calories; back to simple foods, less processed; learn your good from your bad foods! If I may, cut those sugary cereals in the morning (bet you are hungry very soon after you've had them)and switch for a cheap, healthy but filling breakfast option in the morning: porridge! If you do not have any food allergies, then try it for 1 month, every morning, adding fruit or nuts in your bowl. You'll see the difference on the scales & your digestive system, for sure.

Finding the "leaks" in your eating habits
Thanks Hoser for a great post! The logging ALL has helped me tremendously in the beginning, and then I could better plan my meals in advance and as much as possible remain 'healthily' within my RDI.

@Gnat: I have the same issue when I do not go to the gym after work, and stay at home doing nothing. I tend to want a snack, or I eat more for dinner. And I feel more hungry the evenings I do not exercise?!???

Hello New Years Resolutionists, 2012 edition
Haaaaaa, Hoser!!! I am with you on most points, especially point 1. I'd print that message on billboards in town, on the Google search engine for a full day ( or every day!!), tape it and play it back each time I talk weight loss, fitness & diets with people.

Eat more sensibly, exercise.
