  1. I'm so glad to read this post...I too have been in a stall for what seems forever but I believe its been 2 weeks now, just seems longer. I keep going up & down the same 2 lbs. I'm staying just below 800 calories & getting my water in so have no clue what the problem is, except that I keep reading it's normal. Well, I DON'T LIKE IT ONE BIT! Grrrrrrr! Yet, I do see my clothes are fitting me differently & I'm swimming in some of my tops that I couldn't wear because they were too snug on me so something is happening but I want to see it on the scale! WAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!! I do have a love/hate relationship with my scale ~ always have, always will! (Well, maybe I'll really love my scale when I reach my goal!)

    You look fabulous!!! Congratulations!!
  3. Hey, who said he looks like a little old man???
  4. Just viewed your profile pic ~ wow! What a transformation! You know, I still am shocked at how much younger people look after they've lost weight. I guess I never thought about weight aging people but when I see before & after pics, it's almost like seeing a Mother/daughter or Father/son (in your case) pic! You look awesome! Congratulations!

    162 lbs in a year!

    What a wonderful post to read! I'm so happy for you because I can only imagine how happy you are! It's like being handed a new life, isn't it? Congratulations to you & please, post pics as soon as you're able so we can all be even more motivated!
  6. I too use My Fitness Pal & find it extremely easy. I love that you can change the amount of what you ate too on there, like a default might show up as 1 sandwich but I switch the amount to .50 to show I only had half of a sandwich (I'm not eating sandwiches yet, just using that as an example). It's pretty easy...if I'm home I just walk over to the computer & log in what I've had. If I'm out for the day, I still pretty much remember what I've had & just log it all in at night & I do log every single little thing...even if I had something I wasn't supposed to! It's interesting to see the totals by the end of the day! I know you can do this on your phone too but I'm not that phone savvy to use it on my phone so I just do it on my computer at home. Whatever works or helps is what I'm thinking!

  13. My journey just began but I do have one real regret....that I didn't do this sooner! Like at least 10 years sooner!

    We made 8 oz of fish...

    Your dinner sounded delish! I had salmon today. I used to eat a whole piece which is 7 oz but now I only eat half & sometimes less than that! YIPPEE!!! I should notice a diff in the grocery bill soon!
  15. What a difference! I'm sure you're very excited about it!! Good job!

    Free Quest Bar from GNC

    I printed mine out yesterday & went today to GNC & got my free Quest Bar! So it's a real coupon! Thanks once again!

    2 free Quest Bars.

    Thanks! I just sent for mine as well!
  18. If I got rid of my bra, I'd be kicking my girls down the street as I walked! That has nothing to do with sagging from weight loss either. But as big as they are, they are hanging south so far, they're almost in Florida!

    throat noises?

    **Raises hand** Count me in too...mine is more of a gurgling noise from my throat. But the kicker is that when I'm full, I hiccup twice REALLY LOUD! I don't understand that & will be embarrassed if I do it out in public! I asked my doctor about the gurgling noises & he said it's fairly common. He said it would go away in time.
  22. I have no advice to offer, but just want to wish you both well. I hope you keep us up to date on your journey!

    weight gain

    I'm just over 4 weeks out & I've had a 2 lb gain. I attribute it to my body being in starvation mode because most days I only get in about 500-600 calories, so there is NO WAY I could gain 2 lbs with that. But I keep trying to get more in & I have lost a considerable amount of weight in 4 weeks so I'm just going to keep trudging along....Don't feel alone tho.
