following: ClassicRocker's own diet
performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

Officially began my dieting 10/1/11, when I got on the scale and saw I was up to 246.

I am a 63 year old mom of a 34 year old classically trained musician. I am working to get rid of the excess weight I've gained over the last 20 years since I had a total hysterectomy. Lost 82 then regained 20. Working on getting rid of that.

Does sugar rule your life? I am a sugar addict/chocoholic! What are the solutions?
I count out the almonds in little snack bags to make sure I don't eat too many. It's easy to do.

I gave the dark chocolate a try. However, that's the only chocolate I like, so that too was easy to inhale. I broke them into little pieces but found myself going to the pantry for just one more. Very easy to knock off a bar in a couple of days so I won't bring it in the house. Even if it's on sale.

I use tangerines as a substitute for sweets and it seems to work pretty well. I also eat almonds.

Books that changed your life!
Of course, it's all brain related. 1. My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D. whose area of expertise was the anatomy of the brain then had a stroke herself. 2. Rewire Your Brain by John B. Arden, Ph.D. Yeah, you can fix it. The brain is marvelous and forgiving.

diet "supplements"
Okay.... when I was 246, I tried everything on the market for weight loss. You get desperate and manufacturers know that. I was one with every supplement on the market and those touted by Oz. People seem to believe that drinking green tea will also help you lose weight. So, for me, it didn't and doesn't work. I've been drinking herbal and green teas for about 10 years and still got fat and fatter. My opinion totally.

There is no magic "pill/supplement". If there was, this site wouldn't be here and none of us would be fat. This is where commonsense must prevail. We binged, gorged and ate lousy food for years for whatever reason. Surprise!!!! We're fat and can't expect it to disappear overnight.

Time to learn how to eat healthy, exercise and learn moderation. Instead of eating the whole pack of chips ahoy, just one will satisfy the cravings and urges.

Nothing here is OT other then NM's snow mobile question but we've learned to just pat him on the head and tell him to go sit down, be good or go play with Tika.
