Hello everyone, I’m Dan. I turned last week which would have been great but I also just hit 250 which I thought I’d never do. But between lots of life stress and an office job it happened. The hardest part for me is shopping/knowing what to cook. Working out is more a motivation issue, but better eatting is 80% my big battle. Im new to it all so could real use some help. Being a poor post college student budgets a little tight but looking for any help I can! Thanks!

Hi Dan. I understand needing to shop cheap. I have 2 young kids at home and feeding 4 on a very tight budget and trying to make sure its not processed or all carbs has been a challenge. There are a lot of ways you can save money on grocery shopping and if you are just feeding yourself its alot easier to do meal prep and freeze meals. If you want you can add me and i will share all my savy ways to save money while at the grocery store.

oops I think I can you the same one twice..but might have to adjust them a bit to fit your calorie range.

You're right dieting is 80% of weight loss.

tealady8/14/2018 9:25:47 AM

Hi Dan. I found a few ideas

Hi everyone. I'm 21 years old, a university student studying history. I was 140 pounds when I went to college at 18, and two years later I was up to 230 pounds. Now I'm at 250. I've never been overweight before and I'm finding it super hard to stick to a diet so I'm trying to make lifestyle changes like portion control and exercise. I have a bit of trouble staying motivated too, and I constantly feel like I'm starving.

tealady8/14/2018 9:15:22 AM

Hi Alex...have you tried upping your protein? Also, allow yourself some healthy choices for snacks...a handful of almonds and raisins helps. I started grabbing a bottle of muscle milk. It's 160 calories but really takes the edge off of my hunger.

tealady 8/9/2018 10:06:50 AM

WooooHoooo Hit the gym the work out zone! :)

Hello, I’m new here. I am about to turn 28 in two weeks, and sadly I am at my highest weight EVER. I am 30 pounds bigger than I was after I had my daughter 10 years ago. When my daughter was two, I managed to get down to my smallest ever, loosing 70pounds. Not I have managed to regain the 70 and add 30. I have never felt so awful. I struggle the most with motivation. The first week is always the hardest. But once I get pass the first week, everything falls into place. But it’s just getting pass that first week that I haven’t managed to do this time. I’m lacking something, I just don’t know what it is. I want to looks the weight, but I just can’t stay motivated. Any suggestions on how to stay motivated?

tealady8/6/2018 8:59:49 AM

I saw a poster that said, eat naked in front of a mirror but I don't think you need to be that drastic. Just remember the reason why you wanted to lose weight to begin with...and put it up on post its. :) That helps me a lot.

Hi I'm 25 and 5'7. This year I have gained a lot of weight and am currently sitting at 196. I am hoping to eventually lose 50lbs to reach a healthy weight. I am splitting up my goal into smaller amounts so that it doesn't seem as intimidating. Currently aiming to reach 186 by the end of summer.

tealady7/25/2018 6:26:38 AM

I love that're going to do it! :)

tealady 7/18/2018 9:06:08 AM

I'm on day #13 of my dumbbell challenge and I can already see changes. Love it!!!

Hi, I'm Patty. I am hoping to learn some new ways of dealing with my food issues so I can get off the diet roller coaster that began when I was 10 years old. I am so tired of thinking about food and calories and obsessing over what I can or cannot eat. For now I am 'trying' to focus on eating healthy. Wish me luck!

tealady7/18/2018 9:05:40 AM

Don't you have days when you're so sick of thinking about food. I know I do!

Thelimit_isthesky 6/23/2018 2:47:56 PM

Hey, I am Sky. I am 21 years old. When I was 18 I tipped the scale at 232 pounds. Over the course of two years I have lost 80 pounds and am now 155 pounds. I am hoping by the end of the year I will reach my goal of losing 100 pounds! Looking for others similar in age to keep each other accountable as we start/continue our journeys together!
