I need to lose a few lbs. So i'm going to start exercising on my elliptical and cutting my carbs. I may go full blown atkins *if i can...it's tough**
So If anyone wants to join me, maybe we can start a thread on here.

Oh honey don't do Atkins. It works but it's sooo bad for you.

Just count your calories with me We can be each others motivators.

eh I've done it before and felt fab on it after the initial 3 day period when you feel crappy. My headaches went away and my sleepiness and i had a buttload of energy . Oh and my bloating went away!! I don't really think its bad for you. I think some people get a wrong idea about what you eat on it.

Nah my OH did it so I know about the different phases and such, i'm actually insanely read on nutrition and I just prefer a plethora of options as opposed to dependent upon which week of the diet i'm on. I'm all about options :P That being said I don't have the energy to face the first week of atkins with work - i'd fall over dead.

I actually did something, SOMEWHAT similar called the Paleo diet. It's not actually a "diet" more so as it's just a way to eat. It's crazy how much thought and science there is behind what you eat.

Have you been going to the gym?

5lbs a month? Absolutely.

I'm assuming you're not big to begin with, but many large people drop that in the first few DAYS of starting to eat right and exercise. You'd be surprised what nasty tricks your body is playing with water and such.

3,500 calories is 1 pound of body weight, so if you find your BMR, and cut out 3,500 a week off your maintenance you'll lose 1lb/week. It's science at that, when I first started dieting 2 years ago I lost 50lbs in 3 months - which is insane, I did it incorrectly (the starve and overwork method) but I kept it off. I'm about recomping my body now and doing it the right way.

oooh another diet buddy
I don't know if just counting cals will work for me. I have to cut breads/pasta/sweets out pretty much completely. They have a bad effect on me. Counting cals sounds really time consuming Dieting sucks so bad!!! I am not going to a gym i have my own elliptical and some weights if i feel so inspired. lol

I'm 5'7" and I probably weigh 140...I'd be "happy" with 130, but 125 is "the goal". I don't think 140 is bad except its not muscle its jiggly fat he he and my butt doesn't really fit in my jeans anymore!

I think about 5 lbs of it is water weight though...I'm sure. But I also have some trouble w/ my thyroid that makes losing it a bit harder :-/ Its not medicated because sometimes it kicks into over-drive instead of sitting being a useless blob, and at 25 it could cause a heart attack ha. LOL. So...its not the easiest thing to lose the weight, and I really need to exercise not just cut back on food...but I need to do it now before it gets further out of hand...
