I plan my meals in the morning. If I don't, I don't always go over, but I don't eat as well. In fact, I don't eat enough anymore, often going under 1200 calories. Which, according to my doctor, is just as bad as going over my calorie limit. I also don't eat as healthy if I don't plan.

emoticon from sunny coastal NC! Your doctor is right a slow & steady progress in weight loss will last longer than a quick drop then regain. Work on your tracking for both food and fitness and do small steady steps each day to make them a part of life.

emoticon from North Carolina, Happy Valentines weekend.
Have a great day with your kids and don't forget to track your food, I track- plan meals for the whole day in the morning so I can have a treat for a snack, hope that helps. Its better than
tracking at the end of the day and you go over.

Hello everyone. My name is Libi. I'm a single mom, part-time bookkeeper, full-time accounting student, and full-time care-giver.

2 months ago I had surgery to completely remove my thyroid, which had grown to enormous proportions. It was pushing on my jugular, had shoved my wind pipe out of the way and was pressing on my esophagus. Now all the years of not being able to exercise without feeling like I was going to die makes complete sense. I also couldn't lose weight without almost starving myself.

All that has changed since the surgery. I can exercise now (up to 30 minutes of step without wanting to die), and I seem to be able to lose weight. I'm using the Nutrition Tracker to help me eat healthy.

I'm currently losing 1.5 pounds or so a week. That seems to be discouraging, but my doctor said it was much better to lose the weight slowly. I'm going to listen to him.

I'm glad to have a place where I can get support for my slow weight loss. I look forward to meeting you all.
