Nothing I did at my heaviest was high-impact. Through the first 70 pounds, I was working out on a Tony Little Gazelle. When that broke I moved on to Wii Fit exercises.

With the remaining 25 pounds I moved onto biking and Jillian Michaels DVDs.

What matters more than intensity: consistency, no matter what you do.

Hi Tabitha, it's nice to meet you. I must admit if you're speaking with a nutritionist you're already far more well informed about a diet that you need to follow than I managed to achieve during my actual weight loss. It was only after I lost weight that I began to better educate myself about food and how to prepare it for myself.

In the first month my focus was simply to log the food I ate, aim for increasing my proteins and fats and decreasing my carbs, and increasing my fiber intake. I achieved this with a repetitious, boring diet day in and out of soy burgers, boiled eggs, and Fiber-One products.

At about 7 to 8 months into my weight loss, I began (unknowingly) practicing the principles of the Volumetrics diet to offset incredibly increased hunger pangs. Lots of raw fruits and vegetables. I also started to focus on making low-calorie meals (mostly from the Hungry Girl cookbooks) and I even started to cook meat (chicken breast only).

I continue now to prepare low-calorie meals but from mostly scratch instead of using prepared or processed foods. I am slowly branching out each day and I am even cooking and baking this year with real oils, butter, sugars and cheeses (each carefully measured and weighed).

I guess my answer is that I was not a good example to follow in terms of a weight-loss diet. I cooked for myself and I could get away with eating the same foods every day for months.

More than anything else, what led to my success in dropping the pounds was a complete and consistent restriction of calories, counting them always and without fail.

I feel overwhelmed too but I know it makes me worse to get stressed out. Sometimes you have to give in to the stress and just acknowledge it and do something constructive about it. I'm going to pamper myself tonight and not do much of anything today.

Hey! Just wanted to let you know that I miss you around here and that I think about you every time I start a workout DVD: "Just 10/20/40 minutes"

Hope you are doing well!!
