Common Myths From The Weight Loss Crowd - The only thing that a food journal taught me is that I eat 1600 calories a day and exercise three two four times a week to stay 65 pounds overweight. Not good for someone who has struggled with bulimia. Getfit, Weight Loss, Weights Watchers, Menu, Loseweight, Weights Loss Tips, Get Fit, Lose Weights, Weightloss

According to this chart, I'm right where I should be. However, it also says I could be up to 20 pounds lighter and still be considered healthy? At my height, that would definitely NOT be in good health. For the first time, I'm ditching the scale and focusing on living well in order to feel well.

This statement is so true. And the article attached to it is true too -- if the health issues associated with obesity aren't enough to scare you into a healthy lifestyle, then I don't know what is.

Also, eat off of a salad plate, because your serving only needs to be as big as your fist. Eat small portions every 2 hours to keep your blood sugar stable.You need to work out for 40 mins. at least to lose weight (sweat). If you have a craving for something, only eat as much as you need to kill that craving. Plus don't consume sugar drinks.
Weight loss journal....I like this idea with a comp book..not sure mine would be as busy but the scrapbooker in me is thinking of ways to make a fun food journal with pics and quotes and such...must try this. I love to handwrite things, not sure tracking on my phone would be my best...no where to make notes and track my feelings and such.
