Weight Watchers and sports are the only things that have ever made a difference for me. I was a little chubby at 13,14 so my mom allowed me to diet, but only if I'd do it with WW. WW made sure I was eating enough nutritious food and get a sense of what is healthy. I lost a few pounds back then, which really improved my body image and I was able to keep my weight till the Freshman 15. 

I am convinced that by eating lots of veggies, fruit and non-processed food and avoiding HFCS and excessive amounts of fat and sugar as well as implementing regular activity (as easy as using the stairs instead of elevator, etc.) and fun sports (I love Zumba) into one's daily life, body weight can be reduced slowly but surely.

Congratulations to all of you making progress! It's so motivating.

I'm a little late on this, but I want to join in.  I have an ultimate goal to get into a size 4 (US) over the next few years.  I am currently sitting at size 12 but I am usually a 10 so I need to do something about it now.  I plan to start off with one healthy change at a time.  The first on is a big one, but a good one.  Utilize the free private gym at my work building.  They even have personal trainers there.  I will start there, and start other changes week by week such as increasing activity and focusing on diet and nutrition. I'm going for a lifestyle change.

I really don't want my son to be the kid with the fat mom.  :apple:

@Mela99 I downloaded the app the other day, got registered and as far as I understood it, I have to pay 200€ to make use of it? Do you think it would be worth my hard earned money? I need to get in shape urgently, I need to improve my health. I would absolutely pay for the app if someone can convince me that my money is well spent.

I've started doing a morning walk and an evening/late afternoon walk.  Sometimes I walk 4 miles in the morning and then 2-ish later with a friend.  Or vice versa.  Today, for the first time, I did four-mile walks for both walks!  I was pretty sedentary the rest of the day, but still!

I'm pushing myself now because my friend's birthday is later this week and I'm not sure if he still wants to do the 12-ish mile walk to celebrate.  I want to be ready if he does.  And if not, well, I'm still trying to lose those 9 pounds -- I think I'm down 1-2 of those but I'm not sure yet (I don't count it until I see it on the scale 2-3 times in a row -- otherwise I consider it a potential bobble)

Anyway, I've been walking so much that I'm pretty sure I'll have some weight loss to report soon! (as long as I can stay away from the extra food)

I fell off the wagon a little bit this week with a stop at the Cheesecake Factory... and pizza for dinner one night ... But by some miraculous act I lost half a pound still. My goal for this week is at LEAST 5k steps every single day. I want to build up to 10 but it's so hard with desk jobs...

Ain't that the truth!

I only make about 1.5 to 2k steps in a work day. That includes everything from getting up to when I get home from work in the late afternoon/early evening. It's really freaking hard to make it to 10k steps from there. I wish I was able to walk more during the work day. I have taken up going on walks almost every day after work (I'm up to 7k steps on average over the last month), but it just takes so much time out of my day. And I don't think I can keep it up once winter rolls around, since it'll be dark long before I get home from work. Ughh. I have about 10 pounds that I really, really want to lose.

I would. It's worth a try anyway. I've had great success with it. I lost 40 pounds the first time around with it. Hoping to lose the same this time

      Did whatever I had change my personality at all?  Maybe a good thing if it makes my asshole tolerance even lower than before.

      Now thats the cats out of the bag, it feels nice to finally talk about it.
      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.
