WTG Vera, baby steps. I think once you start small and work your way up to your eating/exercising goals you will see a huge difference!!



I always put on a few pounds during the holidays too. I used to be able to get it back off in the spring and summer but the last few years, they do not want to go away. I can't diet (recovering anorexic)- counting calories is my downfall/obsession if I let it. I try to be more active in the spring, walks, yard work. Once the Christmas cookies are all gone, it is much easier to stop the snacking. I could eat cookies all day, every day.

You might look in to the work of Jason Fung - The Obesity Code. I've read that book and it changed my life. I think if you can eat less frequently (no snacking!) you'll see a trend in the right direction. don't limit yourself at meal times, that just leads to binging, but only eat 3 times a day to start.



You also might look at Julia Ross and her "cure" books. That's all about amino acids and how to correct imbalances.


Good luck! You can do it!

I found it was soda that was killing me. I lost my first 20 pounds by severely limiting my soda intake. (I was drinking the stuff like it was water.)

Good start, now I have to keep up tonight with no sweets
Just tried an oven baked oatmeal this morning, never had that before.
I really liked it. I used just red fruit, frozen, but it tasted good.
I found a recipe and from the picture i thought it would be crunchy but it was not.
Will try it again with the coconut and banana! But not really the quick breakfast i am used to!

I have maintained my weight loss with only a few lbs gained back over the last 3 yrs or so. I started with keto and transitioned into paleo but now I carb cycle (some meals/days higher carb and some days low carb). There are various plans out there but I follow Trim Healthy Mama. I eat healthy, lots of veggies, low amount of starch, moderate fruit, low-moderate meat, eggs/protein powder a few times a week and very little white sugar and almost no wheat (the occasional burger but very seldom, mostly I eat gluten free but can sneak in a bit as long as I don't overdo it otherwise I get stomach issues). I think for me the key is to keep my gut flora healthy. I eat yogurt and granola/fruit almost every day. At night time I usually have a low carb muffin or a few cookies or an Atkins or Good Eats bar (low carb). I indulge now and again in a bag of cheesies, popcorn or chips but only a few times a month. I found that when I stopped eating a lot at night, after 2-3 days I stopped craving it and mostly now I'm happy with little or no snacking.

healthy eating requires a planning and still some time to get everything in-house. Yesterday I ate oatmeal pancake with blueberries, also very tasty!

I also maintained my waste weight for a few years, but after a while the kilos slowly crept in again, I just have to take healthy snacks, I eat enough fruit, but I have to banish chips and cakes from my life!
Now, since I've been paying attention, I haven't eaten any more chips!
I just think I'm in the menopause (I have hot flashes, and at night I often wake up that I get so hot), one moment I lost a few pounds and then gained more weight.
I only stand on the scales once a week.

This has been an ongoing battle for me since sometime after college. In the late 90s I got down to my goal weight with a plan called Diet Workshop. I actually ended up teaching classes there (I sometimes forget about that job). Sometime after our first son was born I did Weight Watchers. I went Paleo when our son was having health issues and I did well on that (and know I should get back to it). I even tried a vegan cleanse a couple of years ago (no weight loss for me). It all just takes a lot of planning and I try to keep my guys happy with what's on the table. I'd really like to be in my best shape when I turn 50 later this year so I need to get a plan in gear! I am going to check out Obesity Code and the Diet Cure as soon as they are available at our library. I do believe that weight loss is more like Chemistry than Math. I need to find the right formula for my body.

At the moment it is going well, healthy food is doing very well. The snacks, I have not eaten any more chips, no longer need it (who would have thought that) an occasional a cake from 100-cal if i really can't resist it. Hopefully I will keep up well!
