Default A poll for successful losers - how many calories do you maintainwith?

This is a poll (suggested by another person) aimed at successful weight
losers who have lost a LOT of weight (gone from obese to normal weight) and
who have maintained that weight loss for a reasonable amount of time.

1. What plan did you follow?
2. How many calories per day are you maintaining your weight on?
3. What is your age, sex, height and before and after weights?
4. Any additional comments about what made you successful.

I'll summarize the results for everybody!

Thanks!

When I try too hard to loose weight I gain.. my focus is on discovering new
things to keep this fun and interesting.. that's also what I teach my
members.. if you're unable to enjoy yourself because you're on program..
then you're doing it wrong..


I'll summarize the results for everybody!

Made it up. Calorie counting mostly -- you know, the eat less, exercise
more, write it all down plan.

2. How many calories per day are you maintaining your weight on?


Dunno. I could tell you what my PDA says but I think that it fudges.
For example, I don't weigh apples. If I eat an apple I enter it. 81
calories are added. Was that an average size apple according to USDA?
Doubtful -- probably higher. I figure that if I'm consistent that's
what matters. Isn't there a difference between accuracy and precision?
I think may this falls somewhere in there for me.

3. What is your age, sex, height and before and after weights?


37
female
210+ before
120- after


4. Any additional comments about what made you successful.


Weigh daily and log weight, look for trends
food log
exercise log

Weight Watchers with weekends off option for the first 48 pounds. ELEM
for the last few pounds and for maintenance.

2. How many calories per day are you maintaining your weight on?


I eat anywhere from 1,400 to 1,600 calories, and exercise three to five
times a week.

3. What is your age, sex, height and before and after weights?


38, F, 5'1"
168/117

4. Any additional comments about what made you successful.


Constant Vigilance!

Understanding that what I was doing was not a temporary "diet," but a
life-long commitment to change the way I live, eat, and treat my body.

And support and the occasional kick in the pants from the ASD folks.

I'll summarize the results for everybody!

Thanks!

I followed the WW plan

2. How many calories per day are you maintaining your weight on?

I maintain on 1400-1600 depending on how much exercise I do

3. What is your age, sex, height and before and after weights?

1984 - 41, female, 5'3" 155/130
1996 - 53, still female, 5'3" 177/135 (I quit smoking this
year and gained weight)

4. Any additional comments about what made you successful.


I've found I have a much easier time maintaining when I don't
slack off on the exercise. Biking is my favorite but I also include
weight training, walking/jogging on treadmill, exercise videos, etc.
Journaling becomes very important when I find myself with a few extra
pounds to lose.


I'll summarize the results for everybody!

Many

2. How many calories per day are you maintaining your weight on?

It varies from 1200 to 1600

3. What is your age, sex, height and before and after weights?

Female, , 1992 219 pounds, lithium casued the gain
Currently 74-142 pounds

Having developed celiac disease in March 2000 and some food
sensitivities and having to avoid polysaccharides (grain, rice, corn,
soy as well and some root vegetables, refined sugar) has made it easier
to maintain. I tend to overdo dried fruit, nuts and honey periodically
and have to cut back until the weight stabilizes. I exercise, climb
stairs and lift weights.

retrieval

1. What plan did you follow?

A Weight watchers plan modified with some additional techniques.

2. How many calories per day are you maintaining your weight on?

Between 2,000 and 2,200 part of which is offset by 6 days of burning
approximately 250 in exercise.

3. What is your age, sex, height and before and after weights?


57, female, 67.5 inches. Before (distant) 365, before more recent 250, after
159 - 164, for the past 27 months.

4. Any additional comments about what made you successful.


Making a committment on February 24th of 2002 that I would attend WW
meetings and pay until I got to my goal weight, and that I would not do my
traditional lose 100 and quit act, when I had a week where I gained. And
then I did everything I read about or anyone suggested to see if it would
work. If it did I incorporated it into my plan, if not I tossed it out.


I'll summarize the results for everybody!

Thanks!

1. What plan did you follow?


calorie counting

At first I tried for a mixed diet but with rather less fat than
'normal'. Later I made an effort to eat more protein too.
I also tried a ketogenic diet toward the end - works well
(2lb/week!!!) but is very difficult to stick to for any length of
time.

I'm not very good at dietting my weightloss was glacially slow toward
the end.

2. How many calories per day are you maintaining your weight on?


I'm not very good at maintaining. I tend to eat more on holidays and
less when my belt starts to tighten.
Probably 2000 calories or so. But I think I underestimate.

3. What is your age, sex, height and before and after weights?


48
male
6'2"
19.5 stone or 273 pounds was the first weighing after I'd been
dietting for a couple of weeks. Probably started at 280+
182-189 I'm currently down 85 pounds @ 188

My aim has gone from just weightloss to lowering bodyfat %

4. Any additional comments about what made you successful.


logging food in fitday - all of it every day
persistence
obsessing a little (or a lot)
weightlifting - cardio would be good too if I would do it.
learning a lot about weight control, what factors are important, what
is myth, what works, etc.
