Still More Question About "how Do I Lose Weight"?

Still More Question About "how Do I Lose Weight"?

It's a recurring question - I try this or that but just can't seem to lose weight, what can I do?

Today while working on a presentation for the Diabetes group I work with I was gathering information on something called a "Basil Metabolic Rate" (separate discussion), but basically what a BMR is the number of calories each of us would burn if we simply had a "couch potato" day.

Calculating your BMR will tell you how many calories you need to survive and not look like someone on a hunger strike… read more

@A DiabetesTeam Member its simply about "getting serious".

The only way to succeed is to have a serious discussion with ourselves.

Stop making excuses "why we can't" and just do it...

I have changed my diet. Some of you don't like the slim fast . That's ok. But I do. I also like the pure protein drinks. I sometimes have that and a regular breakfast.ike one egg hash browns and meat. I don't eat much bread. Lunches are some kind of fish. like today was tuna mixed with avacodos and whole wheat triscuit crackers, a small tomato and a whole cucumber. And I walk on the treadmill 2-4 miles a day. I am building more muscle than losing weight. But my husband noticed today that my belly is as round today. I have learned to push myself to do these things. I also haven't had much soda either. I used to love my sweet coffees from a gas station back home. For a while we thought maybe I had thyroid problems. But I think my body is just getting used to the new foods yet.. more veggies. I am far from a Vegetarian.. I love my meat

Yes @A DiabetesTeam Member pretty much. My zero point foods are chicken, fish, legumes, eggs, and non starchy veggies.You are awarded extra points for veggies, exercise, and water to your daily point budget.
That allows you to add/subtract to weekly bonus points allowance if you use up all your daily pts. It also makes a bank for those times you splurge at dinner out or meeting. The weekly points roll over daily but not week to week. The app will track everything and keep track of points your weight, blood sugar etc. It is all online which is best for me. The cost is reasonable in comparison to other weight loss programs. Lol i just need something that keeps me honest with myself and reinforces good habits.
