baam..Your body needs a minimum of calories just to keep doing its natural body functions every day..I don't know how many it is, I'm not very scientific about these things.

Is anybody in here successfully losing weight by making healthy choices, making changes to favourite foods to make them low fat and making portion sizes smaller? Without counting anything, or following a diet or a plan?

While I can't exactly say I am because my portion sizes are so small, but i don't follow to much of a plan or said diet. I try and make my foods low fat. At the moment i am kinda doing a diet as dietitian is trying to bring up my b 12 levels. So i have to try and eat 200 grams of beef a day. Of course i eat anything else i want too.

When I'm being good my day would look like this:
Breakfast: porridge or special K
Lunch: wrap with chicken or beef (marinated and fried in a small amount of oil), lettuce, tomato, carrot, beetroot and alfalfa
Dinner: whatever we would normally have, which our dinners aren't too bad.
Snack: fruit, yogurt, whatever.
But I'm far from good with my diet most of the time. Breaky tomorrow will be a piece of scone loaf that I found at the shops tonight lol.

Hi guys, do you mind if I join you?
DH and I have just suffered ANOHTER m/c...I've decided to try and put a positive spin on this and use the 3or so month wait before we can TTC again to good use and utilise it to try and get myself as healthy as possible...
Currently weighing 110.8kg - would like to be 90kg (which I know is still heavy, but I haven't been that since highschool!)
I'm doing Weight Watchers online as their are no meetings in my area and I find the forums very supportive...Good luck everyone.

Pizzle, so sorry to hear. You'll be amazed at how good you'll feel with even losing 5kgs. Also I found when ttc losing 10kgs boosted my fertility. Iv heard alot of success about weight watchers best of luck on your journey.
Thought I'd just put an idea out there girls the seems to be helping me. Last week I bought a magnetic white board for the fridge. Iv then done columns and list 0.1 grams to 10kgs. Each 100 gram has it's own 'box' in the column. When I lost say 200 grams I get to colour in 4 triangles. So this is what it'd look like
So for 200 grams I colour the 4 triangles. It has been keeping me so motivated and as it's on the fridge if I get off target and go for a raid my success is rubbed in my face b4 I destruct anything. 99% of the time I grab a bottled water iv got from 0.1 grams to 29.6kgs on my last board, also hubby finds it exciting to see what my weightloss was while he was at work

Sweetheart... no way! 1200 is classed as a "crash" diet that's without exercise. It's easy to get confused but throughout a day your body naturally burns calories just by doing day to day things. A regular intake for an adult is around 2400cal a day. To keep your body functioning properly you should have a minimum of 1200 a day. Do you have an iPhone? If so get the "myfitnesspal" app it works it all out for you if not go to www.myfitnesspal.com (not sure if it's .au I don't think so) and it's free you can even add your own recipes and everything! You tell it your ideal amount to lose a week and it'll tell you how many cals to have in a day plus it works out how much nutrition wise you should have so it'll tell you if you've gone over you sugar amount for the day etc too. It's an amazing app/website! So once you work that out the exercise is on top of that amount so if you please you can have the extra you burn in intake if that makes sense but you obviously don't have to so if you have 1200 but burn 400 that's ok because you've fed yourself enough but just burnt off by exercising *but* if you had 800 your shutting you body into starvation mode and will have the opposite effect you want it to! It'll store every last bit you consume because your body won't know when it's getting its next meal.
Does this make any sense?
