Weight loss has been easy this week, I spent most of it sick with abdominal cramps. No idea what is causing them, but it kills my appetite completely.

You figure that one out, package it and sell it! Just remember if you do any kind of weights or running that muscle mass weighs more than fat, so at first you might not appear to be loosing any weight, but you should see yourself toning up.
What I have learned from Physical Therapy so far: Don't do just one thing, sometimes do aerobics, sometimes jogging, sometimes weights. Don't starve yourself, instead first switch to healthy foods and reduce your fat intake as well as reducing processed foods, snacks, sweets, etc. Replace them with healthy snacks. Once you have adjusted, then start cutting back. Her point: One thing at a time, if you try to do it all at once, you are 100 times more likely to fail.
Good luck!

Mav! Hope you feel better soon. Make sure you are drinking loads of water.

Mesh, how about dropping some of the bad carbs? Cut down on bread, pasta, rice & cereals. Eat only whole wheat bread but not everyday. Try whole wheat pasta and brown rice. Don't eat junky muffins, pastries, donuts, chips, cookies etc. Most important is how many calories you are eating and how many you are burning.

You can do it!!!!!

Get well, Maverick. Sorry to hear you are under the weather.

I have a tip for the calorie-conscious: Calorie Counter, Diet Tracking, Food Journal, Nutrition Facts at The Daily Plate

I have been using this for about 10 days now. It is a real eye-opener for the first week, and now it is like a game with myself. Like a competition to keep my calories down. I am much more aware of how much I've put in my mouth, and how much more I can fit in!

Very easy-to-use. Tracks your calories and acivities, makes suggestions, charts, etc. and FREE!

I think it gives you a little too much credit for "calories burned" in many categories, so I adjust for that. Keeping it real. Anyone else use this or another web-based counter?

That's weird. I was positive I posted in this thread yesterday, but the post is not here. Strange.

Hey Jill, I've been using Calorie Count Plus - Free, Intelligent, Online Dieting for about 18 months now. Great site and it really helped me understand the foods I was eating. I love the recipe analyzer which I have used for over 30 recipes!
