What made you decide to lose weight? What was the moment that made it "real"?

我以前曾尝试过几次减肥,但从未能够维持努力 - 即使我达到目标重量也不会持续。我本来想减肥一段时间,无法召唤动力,但是这次有几个激励因素。第一个是医学,尤其是我的胆固醇读数,这表明我开始面临心脏病的真正风险 - 这是一系列唤醒电话中的最新消息。另外,我想为我的孩子(目前10岁和6岁)和他们一起玩。我还认为,作为一名基督徒,我树立了一个可怕的榜样,不仅是为了我的孩子,而且还为朋友和熟人 - 有些人由于健康/腺体问题而非常沉重,但我不是 - 我非常沉重仅仅是因为我吃了太多。

What diets or programs have you tried in the past? What results did you see with those?

I've not been on a bunch of different diets – most of them seemed too "faddish" – i.e. they'd help you lose weight but they weren't sustainable, they weren't a lifestyle change, just a shortcut to temporary weight loss.

告诉我们您到目前为止如何取得进展。您对日常工作和生活方式进行了哪些具体的更改以取得成功?您采用了哪些策略来为您制作卡路里跟踪工作?

The first thing I tried was the "eat less, exercise more diet", which is to say I just thought to myself, "How hard can this be? If I eat less and I exercise more, I'll lose weight...right?". The first time I tried this I crash-dieted and lost about 50 lbs., only to find myself gaunt-looking but with a little pot belly and not much muscle. Successive attempts without the help of a system of some kind never lasted, as I could never come close to quantifying how much was too much, and what kinds of food were OK versus bad, and so on.

虽然对我有用的一件事是体重观察者,因为它提供了一种平衡的减肥方式以及每周称重的问责制,我为自己建造了一个电子表格,以帮助跟踪我所吃的东西。但是,我只是摆脱了跟踪我所吃的所有点的习惯,最后重新堆积了重量。

I've made a number of lifestyle changes that have helped. The first was seeing a nutritionist. She helped me to understand the balance I needed between fats, proteins and carbohydrates, and educated me as to the types of foods I should be focusing on. Bizarre as it sounded, I wasn't eating enough fat. So, I've introduced more polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats into my diet while keeping clear of the saturated fats (which reminds me – I'm due a handful of almonds...excuse me a moment...that's better).

Other than eating a handful of almonds every day, I now use more olive oil in cooking, I've been eating more salmon and tuna, and have been getting into avocados and hummus. For example, I didn't realize it but I'd been eating a LOT of zero-fat yogurts thinking that was a good thing, and not realizing that they contain a lot of carbohydrates and not much protein, so they were helping me put ON weight! One little change I made then was to switch to zero-fat Greek yogurt: high in protein, low in carbohydrates.

How has MyNetDiary been instrumental in your achievements so far?

m88up.com体育mynetdiaryhas been (and continues to be) crucial for my success because it enables me to easily track everything I eat, including all my exercise. Getting a detailed nutritional breakdown is invaluable, as I try to get the best balance of fat/carb/protein, and I ensure I'm getting all the vitamins and minerals I need. The iPod Touch app has been especially important for me so that wherever I am, I can input what I'm eating. The reports and graphs are really useful for providing a visual indication of my progress.

What roadblocks did you face while losing weight?

    Roadblocks to losing weight:
  • 我的食物成瘾。这就是我首先需要mynetdiary的原因,而且不会消失m88up.com体育。我只是尝试管理它,这就是为什么使用mynetdiary如此重要的能力。m88up.com体育
  • Three times during the six months it took me to lose most of the weight, my weight loss tapered off for no apparent reason. I was still well overweight, and I was eating only what I was supposed to be eating, and yet the weight leveled off or even increased slightly. I had to remain patient and keep reminding myself that that's just how the body works – weight loss can happen in fits and starts, even if your eating and exercise habits are consistent.
  • Well-meaning and kind people who'd tell me – 20-25 lbs. before goal weight, that I shouldn't or didn't need to lose any more weight.

When did you start seeing results? What will be your definition of success?

我立即开始看到结果,因为一旦我开始使用mynetdiary,我就对保持卡路里限制非常严格,这意味着我比每天都少吃500-1,000卡路m88up.com体育里的卡路里!我有一些成功的定义。首先是我在三月份实现的目标体重。第二个是将体重持续时间比我以前做的更长的时间,这意味着要持续六个月 - 我现在五个月了,到目前为止还不错。最终,我对成功的定义将是永久保持体重!

当您开始感到自己滑倒时,您会做什么?

When I start feeling myself slipping, it's usually because I rationalize to myself that one dessert, or even one binge, isn't a big deal. I just have to remind myself that it never stops there with me – that one binge always leads to another, and another, and before I know it I've put on a few pounds, I'm feeling fat, and it just gets worse from there. Now that I'm at my goal weight it pays to remind myself of how good I feel now, physically and emotionally, compared to how I was feeling before.

自减肥以来,您生活中最大的改善是什么?

    自减肥以来我一生中最大的改善是:
  • 能量水平的大量增加,这几乎可以帮助所有事情,包括明显的事情,例如与我的孩子一起玩的能力,并在执教儿子的棒球队时非常动手
  • My wife appreciates it!
  • 不必担心生病。我家人的两边都有心脏病,而且超重使我担心通过不适当照顾自己而获得心脏病。
  • 减少关节疼痛(尤其是在我的背部,膝盖和脚踝),并且由于关节的压力而不太容易受伤
  • 我不再因为人们盯着我胖而偏执。
  • My doctor's very happy with my dramatically lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels!

您减轻了多长时间?

I had an initial target of getting to 189 lbs., which I accomplished 5 months ago, and getting to my revised target of 186 lbs. a few weeks after that.

请与Mynetdiary社区分享您的三大技巧m88up.com体育,以帮助他们进行旅程!

    Top 3 tips:
  • 耐心点。
    不要期望,甚至希望,您一周内会损失超过2磅。它不健康,您无法跟上这一步伐,这可能会导致灰心和放弃的风险。
  • Don't go on a diet.
    改变你的生活方式在一个可持续的方式。Anything faddish that takes a lot of effort, or involves leaving out entire food groups, is almost impossible to sustain in the long run and may not even be healthy. And you certainly don't need to waste your money on specially-branded diet foods. Normal food is just fine!
  • Track everything.
    如果你不追踪一切,你只是在开玩笑yourself. Drinks, nibbles, snacks, correct portion sizes...everything. People sometimes feel like if they haven't put it in MyNetDiary then it didn't really happen...but it did! Far better to be honest with yourself, and build in those treats to your calorie allowance. You can build in treats; just don't pretend they didn't happen because it'll just lead to disappointment when you weigh yourself.
