    Need Motivation

    I am in the medical field and am super knowledgeable about diet and weight loss. However, I have little to NO motivation to do anything about it. I am really happy with my spouse, we go out to eat a lot, we are enjoying life and each others company. However, I am not able to fit in most of my clothes anymore. I need to lose weight, but I have no desire or motivation to! Help! Any advice is appreciated!

    I worked out after a big meal but my weight didn’t change the next day...?

    Hey all! So, over the past year I’ve been fortunate to hit several weight loss goals I set for myself-it hasn’t been easy, but I’ve gotten there and now am just trying to figure out how to sustain it long-term. A few nights ago I ate healthy during the day and that night had what most would consider a fairly unhealthy meal-wings (traditional, so less carbs) with a dry rub (less sodium) and a pizza without cheese (just crust and sauce). Despite these modifications it still ended up being a big meal....

    Work eating for sanity

    Hi, I saw that someone else had a similar post about snacking at work, and like them, I feel like this is something that is hard to find help for. I eat all day at work. I do it because it's the only way I can get through the day without murdering my co-workers. There's nothing wrong with them - they are perfectly nice people. There's nothing wrong with my job. Before I figured out what the problem was, I thought it was the job. So I changed jobs. Then I changed fields and changed jobs....

    The pounds are stuck on me!

    I have gained 50-60 pounds over the last two year with the stress of divorce and moving. I also hit 50 during this time. I move around a lot and don't eat excessively and the pounds are stuck, mostly around my middle. I have tried weight watchers and noom but one thing I have learned is that I will not track anything to save my life. I am a box checker but not a tracker or journaler by any means. I am going to try Pure Barre because I think exercise may be my key. Any thoughts, any food combos....

    Ramen Noodles

    I use to eat them like 4 times a week, didn't add the packet that it comes with. I am vigilant about sodium. It adds to your water weight. Has anyone hear about that. Now I still look at sodium, carbs, and sugar. I have 6 packs of the Ramen noodles. If i delete the seasoning pack, will it take some sodium out? . What about the Cup of soup, the Maruchan noodles, that comes to a whopping 1000 mg or more sodium for the soup. I drain the liquid so its noodles and the vegs. Even the canned soup, lots....

    Battle with fluctuation in weight loss

    Hello all! I battle with weight loss in the sense I lose 5 to 10 lbs then I regain it back so easily. I know what I have to do but I get into this negative mindset about life and it leads to depression and all the eating occurs. I eventually snap out of it but during that time I just gain weight and do the weight loss to only find myself to repeat this vicious cycle over and over again. I have several health issues that makes this battle even more of a war between keeping the weigh off so I know....

    Need a change

    I'm 36, a mother to 8. I recently went to a doctor's appointment and was told i was overweight (duh doc). Ever since I had my last 2 kids I've been struggling with my weight. I am well over 100+ lbs overweight. I am 5'11 and at 282 as of 2 days ago. I find myself struggling with portion control and eating the right things as I am a picky eater as I've been told. Any help?
