    hey catwalk...
    hows it going? my diet's going better than expected, though with holiday food around its really REALLY hard to resist
    anyway, starting weight was 56 and im down to 54 now.. so i need to lose anohter four before school starts *fingers crossed*
    basically, im eating a piece of wholegrain toast for brekkie with promite or something... avocardo sandwitch or salad for lunch , snack of fruit and then for dinner veg, small portion of white meat and half serve of rice
    it seems tobe working and im not starving all the time!

    im also doing 100 sit ups each day and 100 pushups to tone up a little, and doing a 20min run almost every day

    i hope ur weight loss project is going well! *luck*

    yeah i gotta agree with curtainfalls. when i was younger my doctor told me i needed to lose weight, i ended up losing far too much and teachers told my mother i was anorexic (which luckily i was not). just make sure you stay in control and dont take it too far, its easy to lose it and you end up out of control before you know it. but yes to the person above me, thatplans sounds like what i have: piece wholegrain toast for brekkie, light multigrain salada at about 1030, salad or salad sandwhich for lunch, apple for later, then salad, meat and small amount carbs for tea. works well so i can still have lollies (have rediscovered my love for skittles) and other stuff without being paranoid about putting on weight.

    when you're sleeping, your body functions shut down/slow down
    What bodily functions are you referring to?

    i think im in the same boat i am about 55 and would like to be 50.
    when you say "i want to lsoe weight" do you mean you want to lose weight, or do you mean you want to tone up. All i really wanna do is tone up and get rid of a roll of fat that is on my tummy, and my friends/family get confused cos im alwyas whinging about needing to lsoe weight when i really meant toning up..
    p.s. i am really drunk probably ignore this whole post actually

    When losing weight, all you have to remember is that its all about:

    Weight Gain/Loss = Energy In - Energy Out

    If your gaining weight, its more than likely because your energy in exceeds energy out so your body places that surplus in storage (ie Fat). By slightly decreasing energy in and increasing energy out alot your body will be called upon to burn the fat in order to survive.... and hello weight loss.

    i ran for 20 mins on thurs and fri. by saturday i had lost 2 kilos.
    Its hard to say if that is directly related to your excercise, 2kilos is alot of weight loss and usually your body doesnt react so quickly to an increase in energy out (or so I think). In any case though, consistent excercise will see beneficial effects in relation to weight loss.

    But like I said above, its all above the energy thing.... my brother for example tried losing weight, but nothing happened.... because he increased energy out but he also increased energy in thinking it was ok to cos he was excercising alot . Fatal mistake.

    Also remember other basic things like no eating after like 8pm etc.

    Good Luck All :wave:

    well done! i think you're doing a little better than me, but only just! i weighed myself just then and i'm down to 49.5. didn't even realise i had lost weight!

    all i've done is cut out (most) of the junk and that's about it. i've been doing a few toning exercises and not eating before i go to bed (nice tip whoever it was, thanks!).

    btw *wbg*, i eat so much more than you. grrrrr, damn that appetite. i usually eat 2 pieces of toast, a banana and an egg for breakfast, and throughout the afternoon i'd eat 2 apple, some other kind of fruit, a cucumber, a can of tuna, yoghurt, and biscuits (this is where i go wrong) before dinner, which is usually some kind of meat + veggies + a tiny bit of rice. that sounds like an awful lot.

    to everyone else, i know i'm not FAT, i know i'm at a healthy weight but i also know i'm not thin either. i want to be down to 46 kg because that's how much i weighed at the start of last year and i'll be satisfied once i get that body back.

    thanks for all the advice! i'm reading it all and taking it all in.

    hey catwalk.. its GOOD that you can lose weight without eating too little.. i DONT lose weight unless i eat that much and yeah im hungry lots :P

    ugh its so annoying, i just wish it would all disapear.. i remeber when i was a size four.. ... that was cool :P

    and guh! its so annoying, we have "family dinners" (which i have to go to ;P) and we eat at about 9pm so im relaly disadvantaged on the weight loss front!!!

    meh i just want to feel confident in minis and bikinis and stuff.. why is it so hard ?

    yeah there are size fours in aust, not in all shops.. but in shops where there are size 7s and stuff they often have 4s.....

    yeah i went through a phase of being like really tall and skinny but that didnt last long :P i think i was prolly having a growth spurt cos i was pretty much eating all the time

    i wouldnt be eating avocado if i were u, its quite high in fat for a vegetable (or fruit?) although its good fat, theres other stuff you can eat which would be alot more filling.

    good fats should be included in a healthy diet, and since the rest of *wbg*'s diet is practically fat-free, avocado is a good choice.

    yes, however avocado spread on a sandwich is not particularly filling, but has quite a high amount of kilojoules, so it would be smart to use those kilojoules in a more efficient way, i.e. eating more of something containing less kilojoules.

    hmm, well sometimes instead of eating a salad sandwich (tomato, lettuce, cucumber, carrot, avocado), i'd eat the bread with the avocado spread first and then the vegetables individually. that way i get the good fats from the avocado and i'm also eating smaller portions so i stay fuller for longer. maybe she's doing something similar? meh

    avacados are fine they are good fats just like olive oil and nuts dont worry about calorie counting with them they are fats females esp teenagers need to have everyday.

    i love avocado too...and although it is said to be quite fattening, it's good fat and I love it

    some other spreads u can look into are cottage cheese and philadelphia cheese. You can get the "light" and "weight watchers" version.

    though today i saw something very interesting. the "light" philadelphia is actually more fattening than "chilly philly", so make sure u look at the saturated fat section at the back of the packets.

    I was lost and you've rescued me some how-.
    I'm alive, I'm in love you complete me,
    And I've never been here before.
    Now I see, what love means.
