I don't even eat that much. My day is jut all screwed up. I come home so late and then start eating. I could easily loose 60 + pounds. 140-150 would be ideal for me. Not 206. I have hard time walking.

I could stand to lose 15- 20 lbs. The weight really has crept up on me in the past year.

Yay! What a great response! Loved reading all of your replies.

I'm down 12lbs since last fall, I would have lost a couple more this month but the drinking and late night eating killed that!

The thing that really has helped me is to know the nutritional info on everything I eat. Not just calories, but carbs, fat, protein & fiber. When I make a new recipe I put it into a recipe analyzer to find out what exactly I'm eating. There are several free online calorie counting sites which make things super easy!

And of course we must get our daily exercise! Just a 30 minute brisk walk per day makes a big difference. I also feel sooo much better with daily exercise, it also helps me sleep better.

Did you know we burn less calories as we age? That just seems so unfair! I had no clue how many calories per day it takes to keep our bodies alive. I also didn't know how hard you have to work to burn calories with exercise! Blah!

Anywho, thanks so much for the great response and I hope we can all support each other in our quest for healthy lives!

It was a great idea Kitty, keeps me a little more honest, seeing as this is where I am all day! Gotta have someone to answer to!

there is a known figure for your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), the calories the body uses at rest for its functions, but I totally forget what that range is.

What I strive for is to get my stomach to growl. I figure I need that to happen in order for my body to use fat for fuel. I have no idea if that is true, but that is what I aim for. The more growls the better!! I never eat until I am full, I eat just enough to take off the hunger feeling. I usually can sustain this mode for a few weeks, but not much longer.

Eat a light breakfast, this is very important. It will trick your metabolism into thinking this is a good day, food wise, and will proceed at a higher metabolic rate than if you skipped breakfast. I also eat a light supper. If I can follow this method, my stomach will be growling in the mornings.

okay, when was the last time your stomach growled?
