I’ve been calorie counting on and off since the beginning of the new year.  I’ll count calories for a month, then drop off when I get sick and pick up a couple weeks later.  I was going for a small gradual change and lost about 5 lbs that way.  I developed some good patterns but I was honestly expecting better results.

Last week, I was talking to a friend who is doing weight watchers and decided to join her.  It’s much more intense than I was doing before.  Eating sugary foods has drastic effects to your daily food allowance; I don’t mind since, eating sugary snacks daily is a habit I want to break.  I’m hoping that it works and I can keep up with it for a 10-15 lb weight loss.  When I signed up it was about $60 for 3 months, and if I lose at least 10 lbs I get a $50 prepaid card.  I’m hoping the reward card gives me enough of a goal to keep working at it every day.

I lost 50 lbs. Not by exercise. I slept through meal times. I didn’t do this every day, just when I was really tired. Then I would avoid snacks before the next meal time, so the fat that just got burned off, stayed off.

Snacks are the biggest thing I suggest avoiding, esp. Just before meal times, when your body is most hungry and most prepared to burn your fat.

Watch out for secret sugar foods and drinks. Even stuff that sounds healthy can be stacked with ridiculous amounts of sugar, e.g: yoghurt and apple juice. I used to drink a few glasses of apple juice consecutively once a week, and didn’t understand immediately why I kept putting on weight right afterwards (Usu. 1 lb).

Sleep and rest can help your thyroid, hence metabolism, because it can lower cortisol.

I went from 185 to 135 lbs. Nothing really worked except sleep. Because I was asleep, I didn’t feel hungry.
