i'm a fatty.

#1 Postby chesty leroux » Wed Jan 17, 2007 12:42 am

alright chicks, guys, I am needing to lose some weight or I am gonna have to change my name to Fatty leroux. I've been overweight for like 3 1/2 years now. I lost 35 pounds about 2 years ago, and i've kept it off, but havent lost anything since.

I'm thinking of using the weight watcher program? I still have a bunch of their crap from when i did it a few years ago. It was effective in a realistic way. I dont have to time to do what i was doing before, which was two hours of cardio a day and and hour of weight training every other day on 1200 cals. I can't do that and function at school.

Essentially I am starting from scratch as last year a back injury knocked me out from intense exercise. except for yoga. which i havent even been keeping up with. It's part that i'm a lazy bum, part that i'm shitty at time management (i.e. it's 12:40 am, i have class at 9 and still have 9 pages of japanese homework to do and yet i am on the forum), part that i can't afford the healthy foods i want, and part that I'm an emotional eater alot of the time.

Anyways, anyone out there want to be like, my get in shape get healthy buddy? So we can keep tabs on eachother a little? OR anyone been where i am and have any words of wisdom?

Hey, we're always up for helping each other out. We're we e-dating a year and a half ago? As former online partners, I'll help with some suggestions as far as nutrition stuff, I can help check in on a nutrition and training log to see if you are consistent and things like that.

I had to 'start over' because of back injuries too. So I know how it can be to have to start fresh even when prior progress was made.

We'll help you get to where you want to be. Thats what our online family is for.

Now, get back to studying! :wink: :book:

My mum has found that a bowl of hot oats / porridge in the morning is great for energy levels and to prevent hunger during the day.

Eat To Live is a vegan program by Dr. Fuhrman that is not just for weight loss, but for health. That might fit the bill.

You might also want to check out Ediets. They have a number of programs available (including Weight Watchers, perhaps), and you can choose your dietary preferences. Joining for a month can get you on track, and provide you with recipes and meal plans and motivation to keep you going.

If you don't function on 1200 calories by all means DON'T only eat 1200 calories. You need to adapt your diet to one your will stick with the rest of your life. I'd steer away from weight watchers their food is so high in sodium, preservatives and such, even the fat to calorie ratio is insane.

I would stick to more whole foods, less boxed and bagged items (processed), and start an exercise regimin you can stick with.

Good Luck! :)

Haha oh ya definately not talking about eating their products, just their calorie reccomendation program thing. For them food has a certain amount of points based on the calorie, fat, fiber ratio. According to your weight you're supposed to eat in a certain points range. For example in their opinion i need b/t 22- 27 points to function. A banana is like 2 points . vegetables are zero points. The problem most people have is they just figure out how to fix junk food into it. Like eat a box of pop tarts and a salad. its the right calories but bad for nutrition. Like anything else you have to find balance. They have a way to fit exercise into it as well. Depending on the amount of exercise you do, you earn points. I don't know its kindof weird.

Fruit smoothies with kale is a good choice, since kale is like 99 cents a pound.

A good rule of thumb: Only eat what you make, in other words make your own food.

No processed food. No fast food. No restaurant food. No food made in the supermarkets. Just whole food made from scratch. It takes time. It takes alot of hard work. And it can limit your intake of food. Raw is the way to go if you don't want to do any work! So the apples is a good idea. Along with kale smoothies (well, there is clean up of dishes with that one). And talk about cheap!

Are you a Mann's sugar pea pod addict too? My kids tell me that it is my drug of choice. I can only go two days without a bag! I will go to three stores just to find a bag! :lol:
