I don't know if this will help you or not, but it has helped me. I got one of those Fitbit things to measure calorie burn, and I am burning only 1700 calories, even on some days when I'm walking or exercising. The most I burned was 2100 calories. I had my calories set at 1500 and was not losing at all. I did 2 things: I started prelogging my food, and I lowered my calories to 1350, and the scale is dropping a little almost every day. -- just .2 at a time, but it's good over the whole week.
I am a fiend for sweets also, but prelogging kind of helps reinforce the "you don't have enough calories for that" thinking. So far anyway. I know we all make mistakes but it sounds like you're really trying very hard, and yes 65 pounds is quite an accomplishment. :clap:

tony u r soooo rite & i have an initial goal of a minimum of 3 days a wk 30 minute each time. i kno that is a very low goal but it's more than i had been doing which was none. over the last 4 yrs i have had 3 surgeries on my hips the last two were total hip replacements which during that time i was on a walker, then in rehab....most days i did less than 700 steps.....during the whole day!!!!! i'm now up to 7,000-10,000 a day & am trying to add in the 3 days a wk 30 min a day. i do 10-12 mile rides on my bike or walk 1-2 miles, do gardening etc etc. i don't have a normal schedule & 4 days a wk i leave my house btwn 5-6 am to return btw 7-9 pm every nite. i have a hard time fitting in exercise on those days?? i work in an executive position & really don't have the luxury of working out during my 30 min lunch due to the fact i can't come back sweating & disheveled!!! xoxoxoxoxo

Hi Nancey. Just found your blog for the first time.

You write a lot about calories, but don't mention exercise. What are you doing for exercise? It's a two-sided equation; you need to work both sides of it.

Also, I think I spotted a typo above. You wrote "only" 65 pounds. There's nothing "only" about that. Be proud that 65 is gone!! You got that much off - you CAN do the rest.

There are a lot of low sugar alternatives to satisfy your sweet tooth. :frog:
My issue on vacation is I drink more alcohol than I do at home. Wine or Vodka with Club Soda & Lime have way less calories than margaritas or pina coladas or other sugar filled mixers. :thumbu2:
Come on Nancey, you can do this. :rock1:

My "suggested" calorie target by CK was 1750 and I was not losing at all. I found that my scale actually moves at less than 1500 calories. It stunk at first, but now I am accustomed to it and I often eat under my limit.
