My Weight Loss Story-from 75kg To 58.5kg,still Counting by 002: 7:10am On Oct 27, 2012
The truth abt weight loss is determination. U have to be patient I started sept 20 or so,no improvement for 3weeks and suddenly my clothes started becoming big. Each time I checked it was d same. So I stopped checking and started working. If u really want to loose weight den u don't eat out, cook ur meals urself and count calories it helps. My tommy was sumfin else, but I dint give up. Now am on 68, and am woking to 60, not now but say dec\jan. I have totally avoided starchy meals, replaced drink with water, eat very early, eatn fibre and fruits, fish instead of red meat and chicken. Exercise is good buh dint work for me, I went to gym, I bought slimmin pills, I drank tea, I bought girdle. If u don't control ur food sizes, food content and timing. U will keep adding.

Keeping ur old clothes close by also helps, u keep trying until dey fit in. I work on 1,200 calories per day. Am not saying exercise is nt good, it helped me to be fit and nt loose weight. I do a lot of walking, house chores, now. Am so happy dat I feel I need to share dis. And den pastries is gone, any form of white flour I don't touch. My sugar level is very good, I can work wif my head up high, I hope somebody out dere gets encouraged.

Good job you're doing keep it up. Some people literally starve themselves only to develop stomach ulcer and other health complications. The real work is maintaining the weight loss, Takes a lot of commitment. Heard buying smaller sized clothes helps too. Keep us posted smiley

@002,
i can understand your excitement. I started in April and lost 8k, then did church fasting this month, loskt 2kg (from 88kg to 78kg). in total 10kg and menhnn am too proud of myslef. Have already got myself new sets of trousers. Looking slim is a good business ;lolss.

what works most in weight control is food control (portion control) Me think its food that makes us fat...though some people will say they dont et and still get fat, we need to watch the junks!

I am about to start mine, I know I will need a lot of discipline to go through it. I have done it before and by God's grace I can do it again. I lost almost 20kg (94kg to 76kg) in 2007 and was able to maintain my weight for over a year. Although I stopped exercising, I still maintained my diet plan and my weight. But once I stopped the diet I started piling on the weight again.

I started with one week fruit fasting, i ate all kinds of fruit and fish, i ate apple, cocumber, water melon, grape, orange. I did that to control my food intake, cos i used to be heavy eater, when i gained that discipline, it was easier and then i started counting calories, i make sure i dont exceed 1,200-1,300 calories a day, i avoided pastries completely, drinks, and sugar. i replaced white rice with ofada rice, i use little palm oil, i eat a lot of vegetables, i replaced white bread with wheat bread, and if i must take snacks, i take unripe plaintain chips or cashew nuts, i replaced creamy milk with low fat milk. if i must eat later than 7pm, it must be in small quantity, i drink a lot of water. it takes dedication and patience, for me i didnt change until 4 weeks after, i was actually weighing 75 but now i shuttle btw 66 and 65. if u are ready to shut ur self from junks u will definitely shed weight, one step at a time. once u are able to discipline ur self in terms of food, den u can bring in exercise, for me i make sure i walk, i started doing more house chores and sleeping more.

The best thing is to have a healthy life style, if u want to maintain ur weight then u have to cultivate that habit. for me , i have been fat, i dont like it, do i want to go back, no. so i need to do everything possible to avoid it. if i must taste pastries at all, it must be once in a very blue moon, if i must eat carbohydrates, it must be in small portion. i was 58kg in 2007. and den i started feeding , eating anything and everything, i never imagined i cud reach 75kg, thats a whole lot, its better to live healthily. All these sweet meals dont pass d taste bud. i have 5 more kg to go, den i will maintain till child bearing can take me 65kg and then i will work back.

anybody can get fat,even if u are as thin as anything, u just feed on purely junks , it will surely manifest. the truth is if we feed on all these junks while we are young, and all sort of illnesses come up at old age, then the money saved will be used for drugs and one will still go back to feeding well. it is better to start living a healthy life now, eat in small portions, feed on healthy meals. thanks grin

chaircover: I agree, but the real deal about weight loss is a total change of life style. its not just about starving yourself for a few months to loose the weight because if you stop you put all the weight back on and more.

We all know that our foods are full of carbs and fat and these are the culprits. . . .but these are the foods that we were brought up with and it will take time to phase these out or at least find healthier alternatives and it will be hit or miss sometimes

I went to Nigeria on holiday for a week and I didnt cook all my meals so I had no control over how much oil was used etc. I am back now and back on course. Dieting is not prison and it is to be enjoyed and not endured otherwise you just get fed up and stop. If I go on holiday again, I will still let my hair down and enjoy myself but be sensible about it, so certain foods i wont touch but my diet wont be watermelon and eva water everyday grin
MY diet isnt about eating fruits and vegetables only , its nt starving myself but eating well. i did fruit fasting to be able to have dat grip on my food intake, now i dont even miss breakfast, i took a bowl of ofada rice with enough stew this morning

i started exercising yesterday and my goal is to cut down frm 85kg to 65kg. my problem is food, i love food but i wil resort to eatn small portion. i drink water alot n i put lime inside my water.
wil be udating my weight weekly.
Re: My Weight Loss Story-from 75kg To 58.5kg,still Counting by 002: 10:31am On Nov 05, 2012
loosing 20kg is a big challenge, so u have to be patient with urself. the major thing is cutting down ur food. eating so much at a time doesnt help at all. Its better to eat in bits and den avoid late nite food. are u a lady?, if yes then u need to stop taking lime. i dont support taking lime for weight loss, its rather too harsh. instead eat well with food with lower calories. replace white rice with ofada, eat a lot of vegetables , fruits and fiber. u can cut down ur cargohydrates but not completely cos too much of protein isnt good either. gradually u wont even eat much after a while once u develop a low eating habit. i used to be a heavy eater, i will finish a big bowl of rice with plaintain and assorted meats on a sitting even as late as 9pm. in conlusion eating small portions of the right combination of food will help u. i work on 1,200 calories a day. once i get to 62/63kg then i will stop.

Absolutely! Dont give up. Dont worry, you will def get there. You probably know what you did wrong, so you know to avoid it next time.

Weight loss is a long journey and slow and steady wins the race. All the best.

@002, weigh urself at same time daily cos u weigh less in morning & weigh more in d afternoon/evening.

also u weigh more during ur periods cos of water retention.
