I am a mother of 2 boys ( in there 30's ) wife (married for 40 years) and

I am going through perimenopause at the moment ! Ugh

Never had a weight problem til I hit the age of 50 ....just a few extra pounds to lose and decided to go on a diet . Then suddenly i gained almost 40 pounds lol

November 2016 i weighed myself on my birthday and I said to myself " wow 156 lbs !!!!! I have to get a grip and at least try to be a healthy weight "

I want to make this a healthy lifestyle and NOT a diet !

Being a healthy weight and happy is what I am looking to achieve.

Also controlling my emotional eating .....I have noticed that when I consume healthy fats I have less cravings !

I need to improve on the exercise and weight lifting aspect more

Looking forward to one day not having to come on here and track every nutritional information that I consumed would be awesome.

Doing the low carb eating at the moment! ( Under 50g ) and under 1000 calories seems to be working for me ! But I like to experiment and see how things go with other different types ....

Good luck to all of you in your pursuit of your personal weight goal


*** UPDATE MARCH 30th 2019

It's been about a month now that i have decided to no longer do the "low carb" and i have been just counting calories, keeping it around 1200 calories daily and eating healthy and also enjoying all types of food in moderation. I still do my weight lifting and planks and other physical activity !

Have you thought about the "New Atkins for a New You" plan? It is versy low carb (closer to 15 or 20 net carbs/day), the carbs you do eat come from certain allowed veggies and you do not need to limit your calories. If you limit your calories on low carb plans it is my experience that your body goes into starvation mode and does not let you lose the weight. There is tons of free information on the website Atkins.com I have used this system myself and it worked really well for me. I promise that I don't work for them or get anything for saying this, it's just my own personal experience.

Thank you ....... i shall look into it ! I appreciate you telling me about it !

Your body gets used to the same routine; whether it's diet or exercise, and excepts it as normal. Change your diet and exercise routine every couple of weeks and it'll help you lose. Switch your dinner and lunch meals. Change your cardio routine every two weeks or even weekly.

I have heard that before and yes that is a good idea and worth a try .. thank you !

Stop fretting over how many pounds one can lose in a day or week or whatever. Just establish and maintain a calorie deficit and you will be fine. Oh and losing a pound a day is plausible and doable, but one cannot "damage muscles" in this manner.

*** thank you for your reply ...... Good luck in your journey of weight loss !

I have been LC for almost 2 years. After much research on what would be best for ME I chose it because so many said they weren't hungry when eating LCHF. The biggest reason I failed in the past was hunger. I would get so hungry I would eat eat eat and then throw in the towel. Another reason I liked LC was I like meat and veggies. I like cheese. I like pork rinds. It was a great fit. I lost quite a bit the first month (but I had a lot to lose overall) and then I dropped pretty faithfully, 2 lbs a week. I was VERY strict with my diet and stayed under 20 net carbs a day. I am also what I call a "volume" eater. I like to eat a lot of whatever I'm eating so I also set my calories at 1200 a day to be aware of how much was going in. I know not everyone LC watches calories, but for ME, I HAVE to. I weigh/log everything. Over time I have tried the egg fast, the fat fast, Intermittent Fasting, and the 5:2. When I first started I ate 3 meals a day, but now I usually eat just one. You are right in that we each need to figure out what works for the individual. I love that people post THEIR experiences (good and bad) with ideas for me to try. Good Luck!

Thank you ! i appreciate your post ! good luck in your weight loss journey

You are all stuck on the " 1 pound a day weight loss " that i stated in my post on my thread . As i have stated it was unrealistic of me to think that it could be possible to achieve that goal ! Now can we please move on ........ thanks !

I have decided to do the low carb diet for at least 30 days and see how it goes ! if it doesn't work out then i will try another type of weight loss !

We are all different in the manner in which we lose weight so we need to experiment ! You have your way and other people have there way !

I really wanted some input on the low carb diet / input as how was it going for you and what were you doing and what was your success rate but nevermind i will google it and ask a professional in that field !

Let's encourage and support each other whatever way we choose to lose weight !
