I am a 43 year old married mother of 2 daughters, 15 & 12, and I have yoyo-ed with my weight for years, between 9 and 13st, altho to my shame the 9st years have been the exception rather than the rule! I am a comfort eater, and my usual pattern is that a date comes up, like a wedding or whatever, and I lose weight for that, but then as soon as the event passes my dedication wanes and the weight creeps back on. I seem to be good at total control, or no control at all, moderation has never been my strong suit! I have lost weight with Weight Watchers before and got to Gold, but didn't stick at it for maintenance. I got on really well this time with WW ProPoints, and was careful not to get carried away with exercising or deprivation. My battle this time has been as much with my mind as my stomach, trying to fight past those attitudes ingrained in me over many years, but I have been making sure I still get to eat the foods & treats that I love, but in a much more balanced way. And having reached my goal of losing 42lb while I was still 42, I have stuck with the group for maintenance as that's what I've never achieved before! This is my 'AA'- food is my addiction, and this is something I'm going to have to do for life!
