You sound like you have been successful thus far, what are you doing?[/b][/quote]

Hi Esperanza!

So far I lost about 30lbs in 3 months by calorie counting and exercising. I make sure I have 1000 to 1599 calories a day and I try to keep my carb intake below 150 grams a day. I also try to keep my fat intake about 20% to 30% per day. I use to work this all out. I think if I just did the calorie counting it would work fine, I just like to really get into things once I get going. I think it is fun for some reason. I have been having about 2 to 3 days at about 1550 calories and then the other days of the week are about 1000 calories to 1200 at the most. I also go on my stationary bike with moving handle bars 3 to 4 times a week for 30 to 40 minutes and I make sure to have a vigorous workout. I drink 2 cups of green tea every other day lately and then have one flintstone vitamin everyday, but thats about it for supplements. I do have bad days here and there where I have over 2000 calories but I try to make up for them. I do go out drinking with friends twice a week and that does count as calories so I just can't eat as much that night. One or sometimes both of those two drinking nights are usually a high 1550 calorie day and then plus Sunday usually is a high day too because my husband and I eat out that night and then we go to my parents house and they have lots of candy dishes full of bite size candy bars there and I know I am going to have some of them so I just expect it. Anyway, this is working for me but it is a slow process because I give myself lots of leeway. If I would stop drinking for the rest of my diet, I am sure it would help me lose faster, but I can't seem to give it up so I figure I might as well stick to a diet that I can do for the rest of my life even if it takes awhile to lose the weight. Right now I am losing pretty slowly but I guess it is one, or sometimes two pounds a week which is actually the healthy amount to lose in a week. I still wish I could be thin RIGHT NOW! LOL
