Get Weight Loss Help From A Supportive Community
When you're trying to lose weight, doesn't it just seem like everyone is out there to sabotage your diet rather than give you weight loss help? Everywhere you look, there's doughnuts in the break room and bread bowls at the table. People are urging you to have "just one more" piece of pizza. It sure is hard to lose weight when there are so many opportunities to eat junk food.
To top it all off, people can be critical of you if you try to make healthy choices. You can't have a salad for lunch or turn down dessert without catching criticism.
Given this type of environment, how is anyone supposed to get healthy and lose weight? The key is to get weight loss help from a supportive community. Laura Fenamore, creator of Body Image Mastery, believes that this is one of the keys to releasing the weight that you are holding on to. When you are around people that love and respect themselves and others, it becomes much easier to lose weight.
Where, though, can you find people that are supportive in your decisions to work towards health? One of the first stops could be your very own home. Changing your habits can be much easier if everyone in the house is on board. Have a family meeting to discuss these changes. To get everyone excited about it, make sure that you don't focus on the things that you'll be losing, focus on the things that you'll gain. For example, instead of agreeing to eat less junk food, make an agreement to eat more fruits and vegetables.
Sometimes, you can't find the support you're looking for at home. Other times, family members may want to support each other, but may not know how. It's times like these that you need to look for outside support. Online communities, such as OnePinky.com allow you to connect with others all over the world -- people that are reaching for the same goals as you are.
If you've been struggling with your body's size and can't find the weight loss help you need, look for a strong community to support you. You'll be surprised by how quickly you can lose weight.

hi sweetjulie just a message keep your eyes peeled on fitnotfat site by sadielouise cos if its help to lose weight maybe i can help(i am a fomer fattie now a fitness advisor
I, myself know alot about losing weight. I've lost 70 lbs within a year
If you eat lots of high fiber foods: salads,.. and drink lots of water and with LOTS of walking, dancing possibly an hours worth of both and more.. you're in for some incredible weight loss talk about burning off .
If there's one thing I know about weightloss it's DO NOT DIET. Dieting does not work permanently - You'll lose it temporarily, then put it all back on again.
I've just spent the best year of my life losing weight. Previously, I had tried every diet under the sun to lose weight, without success. Today I eat normally without dieting. The main thing is I eat the recommended right foods (no junk foods), and do sufficient exercise (nothing extreme)to continue to maintain my weight loss. Okay, I do eat an occasional junk food. I wish I'd done this years ago.
Today, friends and family continue to be amazed at my transformation. Even my husband is saying that he has traded in the old model of his wife for the new model - permanently.
So, friends, if you are considering a weightloss program, please don't DIET.
I know that it difficult ..lol! but you have to change the way you think of food and make better choices when eating. You should never deprive your self of food but rather learn to eat and live better. I am dieting and trying to lose weight as a new year resolution so am blogging about it here on hub pages! Please become a follower and read my blog maybe we can help each other! I am sharing my experience and recipes will be posting some recipes tomorrow.

Hi - I have been there and done that with weight loss. I feel like an expert. In fact my very first ever hub that I just published today is about my journey. Its hard and it takes perserverance and I think different diets word for different people.
I personally know a lot about weight loss. I use to weigh 298lbs now I weigh 252lbs. No my name isn't Jared and for the most part I eat what I want. It's easy to say weight loss is easy but honestly it's not by far. So what do I know about weight loss? It's hard, time consuming and difficult, only if you don't have the right strategy or information. Let's start with me, I weighed 298lbs in April of 2009 worked out ate healthy while promising myself I wouldn't look at the scale until the end of July of 2009. So I kept my promise and I was excited that Friday morning 6:45am , I felt healthier and lighter but to my surprise I only lost 8lbs. I was furious and so frustrated and completely gave up. Then in the middle of November I came across this product that completely changed my life not a little I mean drastically changed my life. I don't just feel healthier I am! I currently weigh 244lbs and I wake up every morning full of energy fully rejuvenated even if I only get 5 or 6 hours of sleep. I am in the best shape of my life! I advise everyone to try it even if you just wanna lose 3 0r 4 lbs it works for everyone and people of all ages. Trust me you'll love it. What do you have to lose besides unwanted weight?
Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. Eliminate processed foods from your diet. Drink at least one liter of water each 24 hours. Get a dog. Walk. Don't worry about losing weight so much. Focus on being the healthiest you can be at this moment in your life. Be patient. Take your time. Set goals. Don't make this so hard. The weight will come off.
There is lots of good advice here, and do take some of it to heart (no pun intended). My older daughter returned to live with me at home for 6 months and within her first 4 months, she lost over 30 lbs with no additional exercise. The bulk of that came from eating at home, with meals that had some protein, lots and lots of vegies, some starch. But what is equally important is that she had then cut out eating out, no more fast foods, no more other dining out where the fats are higher, the sodium higher, no more sodas at home.
My best advice to you is to consult a doctor and focus more on being healthy than you do weight loss.
I've tried lots of low-fat diets for a couple of years but none of them made me feel satisfied. Although, there are lots of diets,like Atkins diet but it's making me feel weak and unhealthy. But when I tried Medifast Diet,i feel like I'm on the right kind of diet plan. It doesn't make me feel weak.
The caloric intake is around 800-1000 calories.It's a bit pricey, but there are lots of coupons available on the internet http://www.swoopup.com/stores/deals/Medifast-Diet
Even if you don't pay full price.You just have to choose a diet plan which your body reacts positively.No one knows your body better than you do...
What I know:
(1) Never count calories.
(2) Always picture the inside of your refrigerator as you would picture the inside of your body -- fresh, orderly, alive, clean.
(3) Never use scales.
(4) Never miss a day of doing at least thirty minutes of quiet, focused stretching.
(5) Walk as often as you can.
(6) Do NOT think -- Just DO
In short, get out of your head and honestly into your body. Learn your body, feel your body, be religiously consistent with your body. Sense -- Don't over sensationalize.
Knowldege does not change your body. Consistent action does -- the kind of action that ceases to be a set of rules and becomes a reflexive, ingrained behavior that you do out of instinctive respect for your self, NOT guilt over failing at somebody else's rules.
Actually,I am trying to gain some weight.I found eating less help you a lot losing weight.
The woes of winter have left me needing it.
Weight loss is simple, burn more calories then you consume. If you can fully understand that then you are on your way to losing weight. There are 6 simple steps. Here they are:
1.Count how many calories you eat in a normal day.
2.At the end of that day, add up the number of calories you ate/drank
3.Starting the day after you counted calories, eat 500 calories LESS then you normally do.
4. Instead of eating 3 big meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner), or eating all day all the time, spread those calories out over 5 smaller meals.
5.Cardio. Cardio is an important part of weight loss. If you're serious about losing weight, but don't want to do the cardio workouts, then you are requiring your diet to do all of the work.
6.At the end of that week, weigh yourself. You'll notice a difference just after one week! Now, don't expect to see a 20 pound difference.
I know quite a bit. I know that it is relatively easy to do, but very hard to maintain.
I know that if you want a permanent solution, you have to change your lifestyle.
I know that the best diets are the ones that have mechanisms in them that make cheating difficult.
I know that most diet plans work if you stick with them.
I know that if you always do what you have done you will always get what you have gotten.
I know that in order too change your body you must change your mind and that is where the real battle is at.
I know that brown fat helps us stay thin and that increasing your lean muscle mass does the same.
I know even more, but I need to do other things.
I know some people loose their head sometimes in an effort to shed the weight
I think one of the biggest things people can do to change their health is to start by removing high glycemic food from their diets.
High glycemic foods like white bread, white rice, potatoes, basically anything white or sugary cause a spike in blood sugar shortly after they are consumed. This causes havoc in your body as it tries to lower the blood sugar levels with an insulin surge. When insulin surges your body tends to store things as fat, which is not good.
There are many other health implecations involved with drastic changes in blood sugar level. You tend to feel hungry more often because of it, which leads to more eating. It makes your body go through highs and lows, as your blood sugar goes up and down.
I wrote a hub about low glycemic index diets, check it out.
i think the best way to lose weight is through exercise and a good diet plan
To lose weight the first thing you would want to do is to analyze your diet. Cut out any junk and processed food. They contain loads of sugar, sodium, food preservatives, hydrogenated vegetable oil, trans fat etc. The problem these food causes is more than just aesthetics.
Next, replace those junk food with foods close to their natural state. That means unprocessed food such as fruits, vegetables, lean meat etc. As they did not go through food processing most of their nutrients is preserved, and those harmful ingredients mentioned above is not added in.
Then you would want to add in some exercise. Resistance training coupled with cardio is the fastest way for weight loss. Stop doing abs exercises for the spot reduction myth, but instead do full body or compound exercises to burn more calories and stimulate more fat loss.
There is a lot more to losing weight, but this basically sums it up.
Seconded. This is what's working for me. It's not the quick solution, but it's the sure one. I spent 14 years morbidly obese, tired all the time, and not quite understanding why things were getting progressively worse.
I went natural, and the pounds are coming off never to return, but even better, I feel great and great about myself. If I never lose another kilo, I could live with this...having this much energy and being able to pretty much do whatever I want.
The rest of the excess weight is going to come off anyway, but I'm just saying. Natural food is the way to go. Then you don't have to count calories at all.
Almost 2 years in, I have reached the phase when I can reduce my portions gradually without having cravings or feeling deprived. My body will tell me what, when, and how much, if I get off track.
It's very very livable. Natural diet, walking, and belly dancing.
I agree with most of what has been written here. Don't eat the processed food - first of all it doesn't taste as good as home-made and can you trust them to not put in sugars, salts and bad fats.
Go for the simple, close to nature foods. Butter for e.g. - how bad can it be - it is one process away from milking the cow! Margarine and some socalled good vege oils - well they have been processed to death, I don't even think flies like to eat them!!!
Fibre is another good close to nature food to have in your diet. And did you know that eating a bit more fibre helps take some excess fat out of your diet as it sticks to the fibre on its way out instead of sticking into your cells with carbs!
Have read of The Science of getting well by Wallace Wattles. He talks about fletcherism which basically means chewing all your food until it turns into a liquid and is on its way to being digested before it reaches your stomoch. The act of doing this alone means you get full and satisfied way before you have eaten much food - and then you lose weight.
I have a hub about Wattles and if you want to read this let me know as I will give you a copy (free)
actually I dont read about weight loss as I need to be fatten up too, LOL, it is not good either when youre on the other side too....
all I notice is that the more veggies I eat the more thinner I become,
weight loss is a matter of management of time, diet and physical faculties.
here'a few tips for weight loss:
1) Look at the scale everyday! It is counterproductive to avoid the scale, and you can not lose weight unless you are constantly aware of it. Do not become victim to the idea that the number hurts you, you have no time for FEELINGS.
2) Study nutrition. Read Labels. Eating foods that are low in fat is not enough. You must eat foods that promote healthy metabolism and feed muscle. Different foods have different purposes.
3) Timing is important. It is best to eat five meals a day, 2 of them being small snacks. If you wait until you are hungry to eat, your body will conserve as much energy (fat and calories) as it can AND most likely, you will want to eat more. Learn to eat BEFORE you are hungry. This is a win-win situation simply because it negates the Conservation principle and allows you to better control your portions.
4) Muscle is what burns fat. Exercise is important, but it must not be sedentary (on a treadmill) or fixed (the same routine everyday - i.e. group fitness classes). Working out is like reading, your mind will not grow if you are reading the same book every day. You should try something new everytime you work out. This is an important concept for building muscle - and not in the fashion of a body builder. There are deep tissue muscles that can not be seen that are the most important to build for losing weight.
5) If you are trying to lose weight without working out, you better have some good drugs!
Health! This is the only thing you should consider when the loss weight idea strikes you.
of course its all about health, losing weight can be hard sometimes
I'm going to tell on myself. About 12 I lost 30 pounds in 30 days. didn't change my habits except for not eating fried food. Cook it in a smoker (BBQ smoker). And taking a pealed, cleaned and frozen ruby red grapefruit and a shot of Southern Comfort, put it in a blender and serve after supper instead of a desert. Great tasting smoothie. If ya drink a couple of them you sleep right through snack time.
Eat a regular meal that you can enjoy but eat a grapefruit first. This curbs your appetite and ya then enjoy a good meal.
Grapefruit are negative calories. And ya can learn creative ways to enjoy them.
The best thing is to substitute your "problem" foods with good alternatives.
For example, if non-diet soda is being consumed by you often, substitute it with coffee with no sugar added.
My problem foods were cereal, coffee and juice.
I used to eat nearly a box of cereal a day, drink six+ mugs of coffee with 4 or more TBSP of sugar & cream added to each cup and drink a jug of juice a day. I quit eating cereal, quit adding sugar & cream to my coffee and drink juice in moderation.
A year later, I'm 100 pounds lighter.
Losing weight is never easy, and if it is then it won't work for long.
You have to consider your health as well.
Crash diets don't work in the long run,if you want your weight to stay off.
We are not all the same what works for one may not work for the next person.
Here some things that works for every body.
That is stay away fro junk foods,processed foods and start an exercise program.
No you don't have to go join a gym, you can start by going for walks.
In a way this may be best for you if your out of shape.
You don't want to exert your self when you start to get in shape(that comes later).
I have joined teambeach body which help me with my weightloss, the have workouts on p90,p90x,hiphop abs. The results are fast too.
hi everyone. Im new to hubpages and aim to share with you all over the coming months all my knowledge about weight loss.
I agree with the posters who talked about low glycaemic foods and the cutting out of processed foods from the diet. I wrote a hub about the Atkins Diet (which is essentially a low glycaemic diet)and also another about essential fatty acids. No matter what way you look at it, it seems to be not only the healthiest option, it is THE way to eat, not only for your health, but for your figure.
In 2000, Dr. Atkins developed Cardiomyopathy, an incurable heart condition. It causes heart attacks and though it can be caused by many things, it was probably the lack of Carbohydrates or too much protein.
Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle.

I'm a R.N. and know how you can eat at least 90% of what you like and lose weight-a lot of weight.
If anyone is interested in knowing how, email me. This way you don't have to post here, letting everyone know you have a weight problem.
If I get enough requests, I will create a hub about it.
I don't want to go through the trouble of creating a hub unless there is interest.
It's all about calaries, calaries and calaries. Unfortunately, I like my calaries.
It's too bad the good tasting junk food has high calaries and the boring (vegatables) have low calaries. If it only can be reversed.
Knowing how to lose weight hardly ever helps to make you lose weight.
I know that weight loss is possible; and motivation is a key factor. During my college days I had a choice between a circuit of the gymn or writing my own health/physical fitness program for the course.I wrote a program. Although I earned only a C for the program,I lost about five sizes and attracted some individuals who may not have given me a second look if I was obese. Most of all, I felt great. At that size and with my height,I could have been a model.
In 2009, I began a program again because I am writing a book in an effort to raise funds for someone who needs her eyes evaluated and possibly surgery. I got someone to walk with me.Soon more people in the community were walking for fitness.Then I focused on diet and joined a company with ''well being' products.
At first,I hated to weigh because the scale showed fluctuating weight. I introduced a friend to the products after she noticed my weight loss.She began an exercise-fitness program. One day, because of curiosity, we checked our weight.We had lost pounds.Then my friend began losing inches and could get into clothes she had put away.
During a trip in October,I went shopping with a relative.She told me that if the clothes I chose fit and matched,I could have it.Among the outfits is one that is two sizes smaller than the others.I have a few that are one size smaller; and the scale revealed that I have lost about 45 pounds!That is an average of 5 pounds per month. My diet is mostly vegetarian; but I do eat fish so I am really pescatarian.
You need a substantial amount of protein in diet. Protein is one of the main things that will help you lose weight. Protein not only keeps you healthy in many ways, its also controls hunger cravings that drive many people to over eating or eating because they are bored. Lean meats though, not fried, baked is ok too.
i have a feeling its something to do with losing weight .... not sure lol! im funny
Forget meat. Be weary of dairy. Go easy on the wheat.
Have three good sized portions of favourite vegetables at lunch and dinner.
Drink green tea as much as you can - often when you think you're hungry you just need fluids.
Eat only whole foods.
Change how you eat for good, not just for weight loss.
You won't go wrong with this Swap Plan...
Oatmeal/Sugar Free Museli
Grapefruit sprinkled with cinammon/ Berries/ Any portion fruit
2 slice wholemeal toast/50g wholemeal pasta cooked/2 potatoes topped with tomatoes, mushrooms and onions/ any 3 vegetable portions
Berries/Any fruit and yoghurt (preferable soya or low fat)
Brown Rice/Wholegrain Pasta cooked with vegetable stock, tsp yeast extract.
Spinach/Brocoli/ Any leafy green vegetable
Kidney Beans in tomatoes, chili and garlic/any beans/ lentils
Baked Apple/stewed or fresh fruit
Stewed or fresh fruit
Carrot Sticks/ Celery/Cucumber/ Crudites
Salsa/ Low cal dip
All my best secrets are over here...
Never give up on meat, consider: seafood, steak,. Along those lines.. is a great source of protein, and amino acids you skin and bones need. Just eat a great deal of salads, and whole grain foods as well. Along with drinking lots of water and walking, dancing,. To burn it off.
Baked french fries is good a great vegetable as well as baked potatoes,.
This is carb.. great to fill you up rather quickly.
I agree with most of what's written here. I think if you watch what you eat, exercise regularly, detoxify and stay active, you should be able to cut some weight and maintain it. I know of a lot of people who do really hard (almost impossible) diets, and though some achieve their goal, they find it hard to keep their weight because they go back to their previous eating pattern as soon as the diet is over. Some just can't pull through the diet because they get dizzy or they get headaches, etc.
FredanthonyGarza.. you may want to delete your comment from here, before it gets you banned from hubpages. You just spammed this group. Self promoting is subject to banning from the forum/ etc.
have a goal! nd be motivated! good luck! www.reducingstomachfat.com
Weight loss is when you lose weight! that's all I know, enjoy!
Hey guys as it happens, I have a website that is for a weightloss program . If anyone is interested, you will find it at this location:
http://pam12821.eliteweightlosspackage.com at $27.95
I have also just opened up this website and it is a very good program. There are testimonials on it to read as well.
That without realistic goals and a life change rather than simply going on a "diet" it is much more difficult to ultimately lose the weight and keep it off. And eat your protein and drink your water.
Take my words don't starve yourself. Eat healthy (high fiber diet/ protein diet/ say no to fats and reduce the carbs) and exercise and don't forget to have lots and lots of water.
1. Do not think about food, losing weight, etc. all the time - find other things to worry about, the more the better;
2. Get busy, to extreme if needed;
3. Drink lots of water or green tea - no sweeteners;
4. Never skip meals, especially breakfast, and NEVER go below 1200kcal/day unsupervised by a doctor;
5. Get to the gym - or at least walk a lot (shopping works too);
6. Do not keep high calorie food at home - have lots of vegetables instead, and nothing more (you'll have nothing to binge on, if this is the case);
And the main thing:
DO NOT create diets or follow them!!!
Reasons - they are temporary, they often exclude some groups of food, and they make you think about food all time, thus forcing you to sabotage your own diet.
Of course, I'm presuming you've already forgotten such things as alcohol, doughnuts, eclairs, creamy cakes with icing, deep-fried chips and onion rings, also you do not put sugar in your coffee and your dishes do not shine due to amount of oil on them... Avoiding these should be a habit, and not because you want to lose weight - just for the sake of your health.
Weight loss is the first in my watch list for maintaining good health. An additional pound means I have to watch my diet and increase my time for exercise to sweat out and to shed off the extra. Thank you.
I lost a serious 75 pounds in 3 months just by dropping sugar from my coffee and tea, as well as no fried foods, and totally dropped eating candy bars and drinking softdrinks. I did walk about 2 miles each afternoon to keep fit also. Once I set my mind to the task it seemed easy to acheive my goal and I did use quite a bit of information from the internet to help setup the perimeters of what was good and bad as far as what to eat. You can read more here http://hubpages.com/hub/loseweightdiets
Use natural supplements to your regime and lose weight even faster.
Highly recommended by Physicians because all these supplements are listed in the PDR (Physician's Desk Reference)
eat a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, particularly walking and love making, the love making is one of the best exercises you can do, arobic and cardi, great for all the main organs especially the heart, start right now and keep fit live longer......

Losing weight is simple, the hard part is sticking to the guidelines to do it! Magazines and celeb hyperbole have done a lot of harm with this area, the most simple starting point is to take in less calories than you need to maintain weight!
Forget low fat, low carb, hi fibre etc, these things are all hugely important for health etc but dont be fooled when the simple equation is calorie deficit
weight loss is easy that is something that you need to put in your mind. If you think it is hard then you will find yourself won't make any move in reducing your weight. Proper exercise, diet, and medicine will help much as long as we are careful in choosing them. Beware of acai berry, so many bad talking about it, even many advertisement place such as google adwords not allows people to put advertisement about acai berry
You're the master, BP?
Brought my whip for nothing....
Um, not to hijack the thread: Since Pam hovers around 92 lb. at five-one and I've (at five-eleven) added unnecessary pounds at times but dropped 'em at will to my "usual" 170#...
Our method? "Forget" to eat....
Love "Biggest Loser", though...but not enough to watch it when it's conflicting with American Idol....
well, weight loss is a long and hard journey. But don't give up. Follow your diet plan, I recommend an easy and fast way to lose weight, that is ,drink some Chinese wu yi tea from 5ktea.
