  1. I try not to say anything is banned, bc once I realize it is banned it makes me want it more and more. However I have paid attention to trigger foods ( you eat one, you end up eating the whole box). For me that is sadly, chocolate chip cookies and fast food fries, cupcakes. Anything else, I try to really limit it. I have found good substitutions of most snacks in the 100 calorie type, however, I put the rest out of reach, so I don't easily reach for another one. I love chocolate, but I try to only have icecream types at home, the coldness really limits me for some reason. Fries are my weakne
  2. so i want to continue to post even though the challenge is up and i so so so so didn't win. i just can't seem to lose weight. inches are being lost, slowly but surely. i can see a diff. but no friggin pounds. i have lost 7 lbs since january, and the last 3 lbs from that goes up and down almost daily. boo. i have decided to really cut out fast food, limited to once a week on sundays, and even that to watch it. amp up to ten glasses of water daily, and 5 cups of fruit/veggies daily. hopefully that will help. and now working out 6 days a week as well. i hope to see results now. breakfast:
  3. I used to have the same problem , big big time munchies, after dinner. The way I battled this was... 1. made sure my meals were filling, had protein in them, and i added more veggies/fruit - most of the time I wasn't that full or satisfied after my meal, and this is why the munchies came about. 9/10 times i'm looking for snacks bc im hungry. the days i have had a big satisfying meal, i can't even think of snacks, let alone look at them 2. if I was just mindlessly munchy and wanted a distraction i had carrots or celery- they def keep your mouth busy crunching away 3. in between meals, i h

  7. I use daily plate's calculators though they are not that good, and i do not recommend it. however, caloriesperhour is pretty good. as well as google pedometer ( um just google the words) and you will find it. you can see a map of an area including parks and streets and ravines, etc, and figure out how many calories you are burning, the distance, everything. it is really good to use

  14. thanks Adam for your thoughts!!! I completely agree this is a marathon not a sprint. the point is to learn healthy lifestyle changes and exercises that stick w/ me from now on. Plus If I lose weight too fast, it's more likely to come back on. I used to be thin, with curves, but no muscle I want to gain muscle and be strong!!
  15. Has anyone heard of Chia Seeds? my mother raves about them after talking to a nutritionist. http://www.superseeds.ca/ss1/index.html 3x the antioxidants of blue berries 2.5 x the protein of beans 8 x the omegas than salmon 6 x the calcium than of a glass of milk 3 x the amount of iron in spinach 2x potassium in bananas this is amazing! just wanted to know if members have any feedback. My parents bought some from Bulk n Barn, and have been sprinkling it in yogurt since. I tried it, has absolutely no flavor, but with this kind of nutritional benefits, i'm going to make it a regular
  16. so i'm getting very very annoyed. i have gained 2 lbs since last week. what the. but then again last week was a bday weekend, and ate bad. but 2 lbs thats just not possible in my opinion. i'm frustrated big time. whatever, i'm not going to quit and i'm going to still keep hard at it. aside from the bump in the road this morning i'm going to cut out junk food as much as possible. well the above posting an hour ago made me really upset, i gained 2 lbs holy. i mean i know, i am gaining muscle, the last weekend was crazy bad, BUT, still. it is disheartening. that i am on this ball of 160-164 lb
  17. aww thank you guys, you are too sweet. i think i understand. thank u!! also my leg is never low enough to the ground to be perpendicular more, of an angle but i'm working on doing lower lunges from now on.!! So ahhh i did not eat enough at night, but i was full so i thought meh, go to bed. i woke up at 6 am STARVING. and i didn't want to wake up my parents, so i ate.... a bag of doritos, the fastest thing i could find and easy to eat. :S it's weird, they didn't even taste good to me. this is my favorite snack ever, i've avoided it for a month now, you would think it would be super yummy, trig

I went and bought many diff types trying to find a good pair for jogging and working out. they are adjustable, and cup around the ear so they can't fall off. they are also in black. i got them from best buy for about $20 i believe
  19. I can't even do a knee pushup, not even one. I do planks here and there, not very long though. and i do wall pushups usually, but lately have been doing them by the counter, standing 5 feet behind, and that really kills. any tips? i have really weak knees which I have been strengthening with squats and lunges.

  21. Okay this is going to sound so dummy. but i hear people saying that all the time " dont let your knees extend past big toe" but i dont get it:S don't let the knees of the foot you are stepping forward with, not extend past the opposite foot? :$ also, the last line, also :S can u explain :oops: i usually don't return to position after one lunge, but pulsate there and do another one and continue on.
  22. oh snap, i just realized, my lunges are not what they should be. my back leg does not extend to the floor like it should. i started it off this way a few months ago, not touchin the floor bc i was a beginner. i clearly have not progressed as much as i should. tomorrow is legs day. will work on going as low as i can comfortably. rather than the ideal 50 rep number. i'm going to try to do 5 lower lunges first, and go from there. what i try to always do is the same numbe of reps on my arms, legs, etc. like 50 is my golden number. but i'm going to screw that. for instance, tomorrow i will do 1
  23. aww thank you for the bday wishes, and your wise words!!
  24. so have no idea how long it's been since i posted. i took some personal time this long weekend, since it was my bday and a lot's been going on. i rarely ever go out, openly. my parents are very strict. but this weekend i went out and partied. i did eat alot of bad food but i coupled it with good food and ensured i got my 5 fruit/veg servings and water intake in. but still not so good. to be honest, i know i'm not challenge ready or the best occupant. but.. the fact that i post helps me stay accountable. so don't worry i know i'm not a proper participant, nor do i expect to win anything. but
