My passions: I love God first, my wonderful husband and family come in a close 2nd, and I am blessed to have great friends.I enjoy Zumba, skiing, sailing, my Wii Fit and want to start biking again. I am an avid traveler - have visited almost 30 countries at least once. I have returned to France more than any other, but I also loved the rest of Europe and Africa and Australia and China - oh I could go on....
To be honest I think I have always had food issues. The phrase "comfort food" resonates deeply with me. I have been a "yoyo" dieter since my 20's - winning the battle more often than losing it. However, now that I am older I find it's not so easy to take weight off after a gain. So I ended up at the beginning of this year nearly 160 pounds, which makes a real difference when your wardrobe consists of clothes I purchased when I was at 30+ pounds lighter. So I joined Lindora in January (weighed over 160 at the time)and this weight loss program worked pretty well for me. I received one-on-one support and guidance. I have been off the official program since the first of May but continue to make progress overall. My goal is to stay in my 120's for the rest of my life.
I appreciate the feedback from FatSecret members - it helps keep me motivated and accountable, which is what the Lindora program did for me - but at a high financial cost. So I am grateful to be here and want you to know I appreciate you!

Any ideas for stubborn weight loss
Maybe you could have your Thyroid checked. That would make a difference.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, and I have tried every fad diet out there myself so I have no room to talk, but that Danish diet is a hoax. See this link:

"The scales LIE" -or- "You can't fool mother nature"
If we "cheat" then weigh in the next morning, and don't gain, it gives us a false sense of relief like we "got away with it" but the scales don't know if what you ate was 1/2 pound of watermelon or a 1/2 pound of butter. You can't know how badly a "cheat" hurts you until probably 2-3 days later when your body is finished processing it. As they say, you can't fool mother nature. Everything counts - everything adds up. The reaction to what the scales tell you if you weigh too much can be "I got away with it - I'll eat more" or it could be "Oh, no! the scales went up when I was really careful, so why try?" and also eat more. Moral to the story - never trust the scale - trust that whatever you have eaten will count - or whatever you have resisted will earn you progress, regardless of what the scale might say. To find the true story as to why your weight went up or down go back three days and see what you ate that day.
