    How about workin' out everyday 2 hours at least, eating only bread with a small amount of jam if you prefer and not taking the weekly pizzas? Y'see I hardly eat, but I'm still slightly fat! Maybe its a genetic problem?

    Sure hope you don't have the same result :)

    Good luck and Best wishes on your diet plan.

    Regards,
    Firecat

    :D The wildman don't call it no diet, it's a modified eating plan. Simple, cut back on the portions, hit the tread mill for half an hour each working day.

    As some of you know, the wildman is sight impaired. If I do not place my head in just the correct position, I am subject to having double and triple vision. Everything that can be done has been done, so I accommodate this condition. It was a royal pain to find a safe place and way of getting in any walking, but the tread mill(s) at our condo's club house has done the trick. Also the wildman was smart enough to have cleared all this with his doctor before he started. If this don't produce results, the doctor is going to look very funny with a tread mill sticking out of a orifice on his body. Lost eight pounds last month however. Will see again in April when I return for my next doctor's appointment.

    Thank you all.

    Thanks
    wildman
    :D :cool: *puppy*

    You can deviate slightly from it I guess. Do not go beyond 2500 calories/day. Cut the candy out, no cakes please and no creamy food, that's what I'd recommend.

    Again, good luck :)

    Best Regards,

    You will be successful because your not going on a diet,your changeing the way you eat.Thats really what I need to do,but for now I'll just try to keep my calorie intake down to 2000.It will really be hard for me!I love food!

    Remember Rita, my friend, if you want to loose a few pounds, make sure you don't over do it or you may make yourself ill and I for one wouldn't like that at all.

    Yeah Rita!! what's the prob!! Just exercise two hours a day and eat bread and a little jam!! No Problemo!!

    Except that your body will think you are starving it and hang on to that excess with your very last breath!!

    Twenty minutes every other day is usually enough if you are not eating hand over fist!! :eek:

    I'll PM you some stuff tomorrow, if ya want!

    Something to think about: No matter how physical your job is, your body gets used to that exercise really fast, so you STILL (BAH HumBug!) need to exercise some, every other day- going faster one day - doing different exercises keeps your body 'guessing' and it will start to work with you not against you.

    Now that I have said all that, maybe I should go for a walk myself -

    NAAAW!

    Good for you Wildman, may you be our inspiration!! PLEASE!! :'(

    One key is like BBoss said, 'Keep busy', another is

    FIBER!!! A slice of bread with 1g of fiber is ludicrous! That is nothing!
    VEGGIES- lots of fiber
    FRUIT -some, it not always the best thing for losing weight, too much sugar, but it is better than eating tons of sugar..

    You have to know your body, some people can eat carbs all day long, I can't! Noodles, bread, all that stuff .
    Up your protein, people usually don't get enough of it and your body starts to crave carbs just to 'run'.
    Make a smoothie with strawberries (or some kind of berry), yogurt, protein (soy or whey - whey not if you are lactose intolerant), ice and blend! Like a shake!

    good tips marja
    I need to eat more fruit and veggies too.I'm kind of a meat and potatoes kind of person,which is very fattening I've read today.Also love the junk food and by the ton!I havent gained any weight for years, but when I quit smoking first time I gained and it's still there.Gained it all in the first month,then no more,and thats been lots of years ago,but I would like to be the weight I was back then :rolleyes: before quitting first time

    I think I read somewhere that smoking does not actually make you medically slimer. The logic is that if you have a cigarette in your mouth, you don't have food in your mouth.

    Plus, to be honest some don't think women smoking is attractive. The girl I like at the moment smokes and I was not otherly put off by that fact as she is still a lovely person. I gues I would prefer it if she didn't, but I don't want to be the one who tells her I want her to stop :D

    :) People do not like to diet, it is not something one relishes, therefore as I said I do not diet. Also when we think we are denied something we have a tendency to rebel, therefore I do not deny myself anything. The key thus far has been to cut back on the size of what I eat, and exercise. The most important thing to remember is that we must use moderation, and some people can go the other way also, that as we know is not healthy either.
    Also it is a necessity that one check with their medical provider before attempting anything in this area. Advice is good and well intentioned, but quiet frankly I would not take any advice my doctor did not o.k.

    Thanks

    My parents diet but its not really that simple. In my opinion, my mom does not need to loose any more weight where as my dad does. My mum sometimes diets so that my dad will not be distracted by other foods but even when he is on a diet, he will sneak in the odd unhealthy food. I think the best tool to loosing weight is will power.
