I am a little bit excited this morning, can you tell? My brother and I started a healthier lifestyle yesterday which means we are eating healthier. I got up this morning and one of the first things I did was to weigh. I know, I should only weigh once a week but I am a scale-a-holic because I have to weigh everyday. Anyway, I am 3.4 pounds lighter this morning! I know it's mainly water loss but that's okay with me. It was definitely worth feeling a little hungry yesterday. I had no idea that I had been snacking that much lately until I stopped it all together except for eating fruit yesterday. I figure it will take a couple of days to get into this healthy snacking habit and I won't get hungry anymore. I am having more than enough to eat, it's just that my body is craving the snacks. So, here's to another day of healthy eating.

So you are saying quitting fast food and eating fruits instead is the way to a skinny belly?

No, not completely. Quitting the fast food...yes. We are cooking at home and try to bake or grill instead of fry. We are watching our portion sizes and eating more fruits and veggies.

@BluestEye It is for me because I have lost 9 pounds so far and it won't be a week until Wednesday. 9 pounds is a little too much to lose in a week so I may have to adjust my calories a little if it continues.

Good for you! I cut sugar out of my diet at the first of the year (my daughter is quitting sugar for a month as well so I have an accountability partner to keep me honest), and I'm trying to eat homemade-from-scratch as much as possible to avoid all the preservatives and flavour enhancers that seem to be in everything. Good luck!

My top priority is eating healthy and trying to exercise more. If I happen to lose weight also, then that is icing on the cake. That's why I was so surprised to find out I had lost 3 pounds. I wish you well with your healthy eating goals.

It's good to start healthier diet than munching snacks.

@celticeagle Those are the best kinds of weight loss, when you don't know what you did but you lose weight anyway.

congrats!! healthy lifestyle changes that one can stick to're awesome. lots'f times we've a cravin' fer sweets 'n such - jest our bodies tellin' us we're missin' some nutritients. there's charts actually which tell ya what yer body needs versus what we usually feed it (aka: salty chips, chocolate, etc). doin' the happy dance fer ya! jest don't fret if'n ya fall off the wagon, so to speak. indulgence'n moderation aint a bad thingy 'fter all :)

You are so right. Cravings are our body's way of telling us we are missing something. Just like chocolate cravings can mean you are low in magnesium.

@crazyhorseladycx Oops, darn typo. I meant to say low in 'magnesium'. Whenever I feel an uncontrollable craving for chocolate, I just take a magnesium supplement. It works like a charm.

Do not try to lose too much weight in a short time. Do it a very little at a time.

I'm actually not trying just eating healthier and it's just coming off pretty quick this time. It may have to do with the medication I am on. I do know that I shouldn't continue to lose too quickly or I might need to see the doctor.

@simone10 The body needs to adjust to the new weight, a little bit at a time, it's also better for the skin not to lose too much weight in a short time.

So far, it has been easier than I thought. I did have a day when I was hungry all day but I just trudged through it and tried to eat fruit if I was hungry.

Peel some carrots and keep them handy in the fridge they are filling and good for you! Fresh fruit diced up is also quite good and cucumber! Keep at it and you will reap the benefits.

That's the thing, changing our habits. It can be difficult but it's so worth it in the long run. And if you happen to lose weight in the process, it's even better.

Don't make the mistake of cutting too drastically. Just ease into it. And move more.

I'm not really trying to cut calories, just watching portion control. I think most of what I have lost so far is just fluid as I was feeling pretty bloated.

It's already starting to be a habit. We are just watching portions and that makes a big difference.
