Nice going but don't aim too high or you set yourself up for disappointment. Does the machine keep track of the count?

Am almost where I want to be on the scale. Now that means big danger zone follows. Have developed a new problem with Wafers from Walmart in flavors. In addition, keep looking at Costco's ad for drumsticks. If they find their way into the freezer, it's all over.

The machine keeps track of some things, but it doesn't keep track of the number of steps. I count them out one at a time in groups of 100. I think the machine keeps track of flights of stairs or something. It also keeps track of calories, but one thing the machine will do is shut down and say, 'congratulations you finished your workout,' or something like that and I'll have to shut off the machine and start it over again, which takes less than 30 seconds. So I just start counting the number of steps from where I was before the machine shut down, but it is a little annoying, but it's something I could probably figure out.

I know what you mean about the ice cream Tinam. I learned how to make cheese sauce last week, so I ate eggs benedict several days in a row, and the cheese sauce consists of 3 tablespoons of butter, 3 tablespoons of flour, and 2% milk and then the eggs benedict consists of 4 eggs, 4 pieces of ham, and 4 muffins. So I wouldn't be surprised if it's over 1000 calories.

I actually gained 7 pounds in three days, and it takes me a month to lose 5 pounds, and that's working out several days a week and being disciplined with what I eat. So I guess I have to nix the eggs benedict if I want to lose, rather than gain weight-sigh-lol.

It is so nice to learn things in the kitchen but NOT cheese sauce. Try plain scrambled eggs, one piece of toast. Here is an idea: sugar free jello, add fruit cocktail (scoop out of juice), cut in banana and top with light whipped when ready. Lovely. Next to no calorie count. You can have two portions.

That's an awful lot of counting. Could be good for the brain. :yes:

My anxiety for a long time has decreased my appetite, because of that I either eat and never feel full or never bother unless I have to take medication (like the anxiety medication I just started  :bigsmile:) with or if my head tells me that I'm hungry. How this all relates is that I've lost a lot of weight in a month (13 pounds) considering that I generally lose a pound a week. is this unhealthy with the general explanation that my anxiety is causing my appetite loss (not to mention weight loss)? I like where my weight is heading but am upset that I have little to no drive to eat... even my medication has appetite reduction as a side effect.

My goal this month is to not eat fast food after working out. Instead, I'm going to try to wait to come home and drink a whey protein, banana, and almond milk shake.

I haven't been losing fat lately, and I'm trying to save money for a jeep. So abstaining from fast food is like killing two birds with one stone. I love goals that kill two birds with one stone.

I'm trying to not eat sugar as much as possible. I've known for a long time that there's a link between eating sugar and anxiety, especially the next morning if I eat sugar at night.

I totally feel like complete ***** the next morning if I eat sugar the night before.

Hi all, I have not gained a single pound in years. My diet is that I cut out all of the following as much as I could:

Sugar (including in sauces, salad dressings, etc.)
Gluten (bread, pasta, etc.)
Alcohol
Caffeine and chocolate

I'm convinced that anyone who cuts out (or at least cuts down) these things from their diet as well, will lose weight. For me I had no choice to change my diet drastically in such a way because of health reasons.

Trust me, I have a sweet tooth and I loooove chocolate and anything sweet, so I know how hard it is to refrain from eating all those goodies (which are in fact BADDIES!!), but if you want a healthy body, the first thing you need to do is to stop putting bad things in your body in the first place! Remember, it's not all about what you put in, but what you LEAVE OUT!!!

Hope it helps some of you out there xx

That's awesome Afternoonerose

I didn't eat sugar when I was at University, and that's one thing that probably contributed to my success at University.

I didn't eat sugar yesterday, and I tell you what, I felt so much better today, especially this morning.

I haven't drank alcohol in over 14 years, but I have to admit I like caffeine. I don't think I could exercise or get through a morning without it!
