I really really do!



I don't have a goal weight. I'm just trying to lose as much weight as possible before my tummy tuck this summer.



I've cut out all soda and junk food and I'm *trying* to count calories.



The not snacking on junk food is a HUGE struggle for me.



Anyone else trying to lose weight and need a buddy?

I didn't gain any. I don't gain weight it's weird... it's just I can't lose it. I stayed the same weight for the longest time before pregnancy. And then I was never able to lose my pregnancy weight. I think I lost 15lbs and that was it.



I have a lot of excess skin on my stomach from being pregnant. That's why I'm trying to lose as much weight as possible before I get the tummy tuck.

I am on myfitnesspal. S/N is Jessielee627. I am on day 3. Only drinking water and counting calories. I am not trying to reach a certain goal. My big thing I need to work on is exercise. So far, I am feeling great without sodas! I still have a cup of tea once a day and they seem to help with headaches, but I have a lot more energy!



What helped me with snacking (Im a binge eater) is I have a shelf in the fridge and pantry dedicated to just me. I keep it very organized and prepare everything the day I buy them. I also buy a crap load of "Cuties" because they are so easy to grab and go and peel. :D



I mistake my hunger for thirst a lot, too. So I make sure I drink two bottled waters before I choose to have a snack.

You sound like me! I do the same and I also am a horrible binge eater. I'm trying to get better and I can usually catch myself but like I tell DH, I'm an addict just to food & not drugs.

Yep.



I think the myfitnesspal is really helping me with it. I am more aware of what I am fixing to do. I have to ask myself if I really want to waste those calories on getting miserably full and having that guilt feeling afterwards, or waiting until I actually feel that hunger feeling that I wasnt used to feeling and nurturing my body. It's getting better. I just can't keep doing this to myself. I am trying to get to the point where I am eating to live, not living to eat.
