Hi Joann after struggling with weight all my life and succeeding in keeping it off, heavier sometimes that others but never obese, I hit a stage premenopausal in which for 5 years I couldn't loose even one kg, I counted calories but it was tedious. I am a computer addict so by mid afternoon I know how many calories I ate and how much is left for the evening. I find that most of the food is there in a generic way ( even living in Australia) and I have added 5 or 6 items. I think in my case I have to be completely focused to loose weight not just do a diet and forget about it the rest of the time. The logs make me think twice when I 'm just about to eat something too caloric and sometimes unnecessary and give me ideas about stepping up my workouts. I read the articles, post almost every day, read posts and it's all part of a whole that is my program. I have no idea why others would want to read my log but I have nothing to hide especially from myself. But if you read the postings you will see very valid reasons for not making a log public. I don't think there is a better way, just a bit of extra work until it's all setup. 3142 days ago
Hi! I came across your page and saw that we have something in common...we are both former "stick girls!" My days of eating whatever I want at limitless quantities have passed too since I have 4 kids and hit the 40 year mark :-0 Anyway,hope it's okay that I added you my friend -- thought we can chat and keep other company on our journey! shannon 3143 days ago
Cool, I will add you as well! Always nice to have friends with similar goals. Yeah I know.. I hate exercising with my period. And the first day I really can't because I literally get sick. Other than that I still try and get out there though.. Anyway, looks like you are doing well so far also! Keep in touch!
