Quoting kthx.:" Thank you! This helped a ton. I'm not a fan of nuts... but I can stomach 'em if it means it's gonna ... [snip!] ... of them have a sweet taste, regardless of what's in 'em. So I can get past that :lol: Definitely cutting down on the pop!"


:D
Some of my favorite snacks are nuts, popcorn, granola bars and soups. I've been dogging all of the above at work lately trying to stay away from the roller grill items like hot dogs and taquitos and it's been working! Also tea instead of soda. I loathe tea but if I make some it means I'm not drinking a soda AND it means I'm ingesting less caffeine because I'm drinking less tea than I would a soda.

Quoting kthx.:" Oddly enough, it helped me. I dropped 70 lbs doing that :/"


That is seriously the ONLY way I can lose weight lol. Like I will barely eat but I eat what I like when I do eat and I drop weight like crazy. I can't stand nasty ass diet food and most of the times it is soo unsatisfying bleh. I have ADD so when I take my medicine I really don't have much of an appetite and I lose weight like that. When I stop breastfeeding, that is how my weight will come off lol.

Ugh the deathly roller grill :lol:



I can't do tea... I've tried quite a few kinds and I can't do it :lol: I can drink water, though. So I'll just do that.

YES! That's how it was with me. I wouldn't eat, but when I did... it was whatever I wanted, and I was still dropping weight. Now I'm just eating all of the time :x It used to be just one big meal a day... no matter what the calories were. And the weight melted off.

Quoting kthx.:" I'll try the little exercises when I'm at home. I can't really do anything that puts pressure on my ... [snip!] ... (sit ups for example) because I have a pilonidal cyst that comes back any time I put too much pressure right there :evil:"


Ouch! I can't do much on my tailbone either because I broke it as a kid and it didn't heal right. I usually use a pillow under it for cushion but that probably won't do for a cyst. Maybe jog in place, or take a walk or jog around your complex. Enlist SO! I saw in a previous thread where he said he was fat, so maybe if you two work together to lose say 20 pounds between you or 10 pounds each or whatever and then get a joint gift as a reward. He needs to stop being so picky with food anyway :lol: if I can do it anybody can! I'm awfully picky.

Lots of water! I freaking hate tea but I've been trying because I know it can be good for you. But it's like garbage water :lol: hot garbage water. Bleh.

I'm seriously gonna talk to him about it. He wants to lose weight. So I'm gonna see if he wants to jog with me for maybe 30 minutes a day. We can wake up at 2pm (like I said, sleep schedule is fucked), jog... get back at 3pm. And I leave for work at 4:30, him at 6... so plenty of time to get ready and cleaned up for work.




YAY!

I eat like that too. :( I eat just because I feel like it, when I drink soda a lot I gain like 3 pounds. :\

I've only lost 10 lbs doing this, but it's 10 lbs lighter than what I was.... I cut down my pop intake. When I do drink pop, I drink diet. (Which isn't often, because I absolutely HATE diet. lol). But I drink White Raspberry Tea...which is amazing. I usually hate tea, but I love this kind.
For food, I do the baked chips when I want a snack. The Sun Chips Garden Salsa flavor is awesome.
AND, if you can do spicy foods, do that as much as possible. Spicy food actually helps you lose weight. I *think* it speeds up your metabolism. So as much as it hurts my stomach, I still try to eat it sometimes. lol
For exercise, come get my kids on your day off....they'll help you lose it. :D
Sorry if any of this was already said....I didn't feel like reading ALL of the replies.

Hhaha I still need to come hang out!



I looove spicy food. Sadly, most of it is with rice of some kind. The only kind of rice I like is white rice with sweet and sour sauce on top.
