Introduction post!
Hi guys. My name is Shannon. I am 27, from Ohio. Today I've begun to count my calorie intake, as I am looking to lose a healthy 40-50 lbs. My goal weight is 175 (by 2008). (i'm 5'3", so a realize i'd still be overweight, but it's alot better than being over 200 lbs). Once I reach that goal, I will most likely set a new goal for myself.

My long time goal is to be 130-140 by the time I reach 30.

I am looking for some friends that will help support me and keep me on track. I've set 1500 calories as my daily intake allowance. Is this too few of calories?

Right now I'm putting off excersize to see how limiting my food intake affect my weight. For lent I gave up french fries and fast food and just with that I've lost 3 lbs!

Add me if you want, I'll add you back! (If I'm not in the right community, can someone please point me to one that I should be in?)

For all of your South Beach Dieters out there...

Hey everyone! I'm on Day 2 of P1, and after a few weeks of just eating really poorly- think girl scout cookies upon girl scout cookies, haha- I decided that I wanted to flush out my system and focus on slow-burning carbs and protein and all of the other great foods on P1. I'm vegetarian, so I eat many types of SBD-approved soy products, tofu and soymilk. I don't like to eat dairy that much, except in fat free and low-fat cheeses. While I've been doing great (not hungry at all, not even tempted to go off of it or eat more than I should) I have a few questions:

1) Are protein shakes OK for P1? My favorite kind has only 110 calories per serving, less than 1 gram of sugar and less than 3 grams of fat, with 21 grams of protein. It doesn't have any added sugar or caffeine and is high in protein, so is it OK that I have them as a snack sometimes? Today and yesterday I'v been mixing it with 1 cup of SBD-approved soymilk (plain Silk- it has 4 grams of fat per serving) in a blender for an afternoon snack.

2) Are caffienated diet sodas really that bad? Yesterday I only had 2, but today I had 3. I really like Diet Pepsi, and I just can't understand how caffeine (not copious quantites, mind you, but some) can really deter weight loss that much.

3) Tonight I am eating at a Mexican restaurant with my family and I read that faijitas without the tortilla is a good idea (I'd be having vegetables, of course). Any other ideas? Which dips and sides could I have in addition to it?

Thanks! :) I hope to give encouragement and hope I recieve support from everyone here. :)

HI, I'm new!
My name is Cherie. I'm 30 with 3 kids, ages 10, 9, and 14.5 months.

I'm 5'6". I was 120 when I got pregnant the first time. I went up to 160. I thought I was disgustingly fat then. I lost all the weight within a month after giving birth. Then I went down to 115. I got pregnant again and only gained 17 pounds thiat time. Lost the weight quick again. That was in 1997. I stayed skinny from then until I started dating my husband.

When I met my husband in February 2001, I weighed 105. I started gaining weight. We were married in July 2004. On our wedding day, I weighed 145. Went on a cruise. Was 160 when we got home. Tried to lose the weight. Didn't work. Then I got pregnant. Gained 60 pounds this time. Weighed 220 when I gave birth.

I've only lost 40 of those pounds and my daughter is almost 15 months. So, I weigh 180. My goal is to lose 40 pounds. I don't know of any realistic time frame that would fit this goal, so I just hope it comes off this year.

Since Monday started a new year, my husband and I have been kinda dieting. I have a cookbook for crock pots and since I have 3 kids, it is easier for me to throw food in there and let it cook all day so I can do homework and attend sporting events and such with my kids. I also go to school full time and work. Anyway, my cookbook is called "Fix it and Forget it, Lightly" which is all low-fat recipes. So I have started to make all low fat recipes and hoping this will help me to lose some of this weight. If anyone wants the recipes, I'd be glad to share them. Today we had Southwest Chicken. It was good.
