performance: gaining 1.7 lb a week

Well, I am not new to the weight loss game. I am hoping this will be the last time (and then maintain). A few years ago, the over 5(0) happened. Metabolism was never high, I had even been through some heavy duty testing in NYC at Mt. Sinai as part of a program with a dr. that worked on WW Points system. Outcome at age 34 was, I can eat 1200 calories to maintain 167 lbs. It's no wonder I got to over 300 lb after menopause, and eating what I felt like. Just fyi, don't believe the hype....cravings for sweets or carbs---NEVER goes away for me. Never was a real sweets person, but something happened a few years ago, I think I became a "sugar junkie". For now I am making small goals.

First goal met 2/2015 below 300.

Currently trying to achieve 260 (would really want it to be 160--baby steps)

Yeah, well I in that boat too!!! OMG, it is so hard to take a pound off, BUT give me a day or two and I can put it back on. MENOPAUSE sucks! Ok, that's about the only drama I have had with menopause no hot sweats, etc. I need to take more than 50 but for now, we will say 50 lb. I work 7 days a week, own a dog hotel (and yes, we do accept the likes of iPod and Snickers--thought rather tell people leave at home, let a neighbor come and feed them). I have been tracking for a long time managed to take off 50 lbs this year, would like to do 50 more next year. Would love to before summer, but I do slack off here and there. Those here and there's are costly. I know I need to stay 1300 cals a day. If you need a buddy feel free to Request buddy from me. Smile

Day 1 of the rest of my life!
Sugar is so addictive, we are programmed that's for sure. Look at babies, they LOVE the fruit baby food but no so much for the veggies. Smile Good luck!
