I have seen lots of good ideas Weight Watchers, Liquid Diets, Sugar Detox exercise and many more...
And they are great for some people. I tried Weight Watchers and I even lost 30 pounds using it in the past! Then they changed to the point system and it failed me. I failed it! I manage to stay in my point range and even with adjustments I started gaining again. I probably could love a liquid diet and really enjoy it! Sugar Detox would be a good thing for me. I tend to eat the wrong carbs at times. However, the bottom line is I have had to find my own way of eating and manage it my own way. I can lose weight without exercise! I can lose muscle! I can do lots of things - Including making choices that are best for me!

That said, I NEED EXERCISE to tone my body and to help me feel good. Today I can run a mile and not even break a sweat! I can talk as I run too! When I was 115 pounds I couldn't make a lap around the track. Conclusion. I need to do this for me!!

Be the best you can be! There will be 1200 calorie days and 1700 calorie days! 2100 days too! Some days you will run a Marathon and some days you will eat one! (They are yummy!) Someday soon you might even sit on the couch. Live life not a life sentence! Enjoy your life! Take control. I dont eat meat and recently I have had to give up popcorn too! My body doesn't tolerate them very well! I love them but they make me sick. Go enjoy your popcorn. The new microwave bag bowls are wonderful emoticon and take a look at the label under protein! Awesome! BE YOU and I will be ME! We will be here for each other! emoticon

    YOu are doing great! It is challenging to find out what does not work, and to stick to the tried and true for you.You don't have to be perfect. You are right --we need to get out there and live life. emoticon

    Yes, everyone is different. Our bodies are different. Our taste buds are different. Isn't it marvelous that God created us uniquely us? Let us celebrate who we are and give thanks! emoticon

    How does that saying go? Different strokes for different folks? We can be supportive without cramming our diet ideology down each others throats. Sometimes though, when a particular plan isn't working, it's good to bounce ideas off each other in this safe environment. Have a great day!

    You are so right about focusing on you and what WORKS for you. We all have success through different methods. If you find one that works for you then just go for it.

    As long at it's healthy that is. I have had great luck on the South Beach Diet several years ago and I'm going to succeed again using it.

    Keep your focus and you're dreams!!

    You are right, all these different diets that are out there do not work for everyone. And it may take a little time or be challenging to find what works best for us, but once we find it we will be stronger and focused to stay on the right path to reach our goals..... emoticon emoticon emoticon
