    Here's an article on this phenomenon: http://nymag.com/news/sports/38001/
    If you are only counting weight loss as "results" I guess this would be true. But when you factor in muscle conditioning, stamina and cardio health to the equation then just dieting and lite exercise don't cut it.

    Yes, that's why I said, "Aerobic exercise will make you more cardiovascularly fit and all other sorts of good things."

    My suggestion again is.. Find something interesting for you, something exciting and the workout will be a pleasure .
    So even when you will reach you goal body waight, you will still continue to do because you like it and not because you "have to"...

    Just posted. 0.1 kg higher than yesterday morning's daily weigh-in but not too bad considering that I didn't work out yesterday and had a carb-laden lunch at South Cafe. Will see if I can do better this week...

    Good job, TR. Don't worry about day-to-day fluctuations; keep your eye on the trend.

    I was 89.9kg today, down from 90.7 last week. Not bad considering I "cheated" with some whiskey and nachos at the Hobgoblin meet-up on Friday.

    I'd lose that much if I just took a dump!

    As would I. But those are post-dump weights each time, so it's a non-dump loss.

    Anyway, big weight loss happens over time. How much were you expecting us to lose in 1 week?

    without getting too much into disgusting detail about the length and sophistication of the human digestion system i have to agree with v-twister that even after having a dump there is a rather large margin for differences in your weight.

    And there's also only so much weight you can lose in a week. Really, what's your point? That the diets aren't working?

    12kg in one year works out to 0.23kg per week. All of us have lost more than that in our first week.

    BTW, losing a lot of weight in your first week on a diet is not unusual, especially if you were really overweight when you started. It's due to there being less water and undigested food in your body, not to actual fat loss.

    i understand these points. for me it is not so much a diet as a permanent lifestyle change that i hope will result in a slow and gradual weight loss with a goal of losing 12kg to be at 75 total body weight by next april.

    Good luck!

    If you want, committing to post your progress on this site is a good way to give yourself an incentive to keep going. Knowing you have to post up your weight each week really helps avoid the temptation to grab for the pizza and beer...

    I know some will scoff at this, but if you're serious about a lifestyle change then choosing a vegetarian diet is certainly one way to bring real focus on exactly what you're eating. My diet has never been so much a focus of my life, and I've never enjoyed food as much as I do now. Cooking becomes a necessity, and that means choosing exactly what goes into your meals. However, in saying this, a bad vegetarian diet can mess it all up. I recently met a vegan ex-colleague after not seeing her for a couple of years and she had become obese, on a vegan diet.
