I'm in the middle of a cake order and I am finding I am NOT continually tasting the frosting, or eating cake remnants as I used to. I taste until it is right and then am staying away from it without a lot of conscious effort. This is a huge improvement. I don't really want it. I think my success at the pool and the fact I have little appetite are the major factors in the change.

I am patting myself on the back

To add to what I said below, I have a couple of pair of fleece PJ bottoms that I wear around the house. Before my surgery (beginning of February), they were tight. Tonight, they keep falling down. I haven't (and won't) get on the scale or even measure just yet, but for me that is progress!

Good for you. You can start a new style by wearing suspenders with those flannel pants LP!

TB has several pairs of suspenders. I should borrow some and give it a try!

Thanks, Cheryl, it feels good.

Calories. Are. Not. Created. Equally. <-- there are five articles you can click on to whet your whistle with with hundreds more available.

If we would eat real, nutrient dense whole foods [which means would be eliminating added sugars / HFCS] we'd pretty much never "over eat" or have to think about calories again. The source of calories consumed is exponentially more important than any calorie count.

Imagine 750 calories worth of spinach and tomatoes and mushrooms and carrots in a glorious soup or salad. Now picture that Big Mac w/ SMALL fries and a "diet" soda which is also equal to about 750 calories. Which dinner is better for your body? Which food satisfies your nutritional needs? Which meal would your body most effectively burn as fuel?

It's time to let go of the "health advice" from decades past. If it were accurate, and true, obesity would have been eradicated long ago; instead the obesity rate has steadily climbed over the past 50 years. The advice didn't help Eisenhower in the 1950's and it's not helping anyone today.



Challenge the status quo. Be open and receptive to changing schools of thought - especially when the same-old-same-old is failing everyone miserably! We don't treat cancer or mental health issues with old and outdated treatments. Why embrace antiquated food / diet guidelines?

Excellent post. And very true in my opinion.
Calories counting has never worked for me in the past. So I don't count calories. I watch my carb intake and lose weight. I don't even follow Atkins to the tee. But I do know how my body works and what works for my body.

Discussions and debates lead to findings Addie. "Stray Thoughts" is not a weight loss thread. Frankly I have no idea what it is. I have never ventured into that sub forum as the title alone keeps me away.

This is the "off topic" sub forum. This threads title is about losing weight.
And don't we already have more moderators than any forum could ever need?
I am talking about unofficial moderators.

Lets be realistic here for a minute.
Do you really expect any thread to stay on a steady unadulterated course for its entirety?

This thread is titled "Who's Trying to Lose Weight".
Can we really expect this thread to not veer into a diet discussion at some point?
So we are getting exactly what this thread was designed for. We don't need a new one.
In fact, they could merge both threads with few people even noticing.
