1 get up and move as much as you can get your heart rate up and do it daily even if it only 10 mins a day you will see with time you can increase you work out time the more you move the more fat and calories you burn!

Please tell us some important mistakes you did in your diets. We can learn from them.
i gave up when i should have keep up what i was doing
How should your close ones treat you as a dieter? Should they better be quiet on the subject, or should they push you?
i think they should be your cheerleaders cheering you on as you would in football as you go for the goal they should support you and help you in all you do to reach your goal
If you are living with others, how do you handle the problem of you having special diet meals while others have their usual meals?
i am determined to stick to what i have going and it that mean me eating away from the others so that im not encouraged to eat as they do then i will do so
How do you cope with eating less? For some people it really hurts and is like hell. For some others, they enjoy the light feeling. How about you?
this is one of the problems i have at first but if you choose low cal food then you can eat just about all day lol and feel full
