I am 42. I am 42 and feeling and looking 42. That's what is scaring me. I have never felt or looked my age. I am trying to adjust to 42 which would be smart since I turn 43 next week.
It was Christmas Day 2005 and we (husband, daughter ,now 7 and son, now 5) were at my in-laws. We thought it was just going to be the immediate family but to our surprise and delight, long-unseen family members began to show up. All I could think about was how uncomfortably large I was. I was so focused on my weight that I don't even remember any specifics. That day I determined that for Christmas 2006, I would not be embarrassed to see anyone.
Christmas 2006 just passed and I am as big as I was for 2005. I guess weight does not come off by hoping.
My husband calls it a diet. I keep insisting that it is not - I need to change my eating habits because I don't want to feel 43 when Christmas 2007 arrives! I am an older mother and I want to be here for my kids into their adulthood.
I want to wear Victoria's Secret!!

Buddy, Buddy, Where is my Buddy?
I am ready to go! I have been warming up for about a month now - getting healthy foods in the house, trying recipes and psyching myself up. What I am looking for is a buddy who will be working out as well. I will be doing my treadmill and need a little friendly competition to motivate me. As a buddy I can offer you communication with motivation, humor, recipes and a shoulder to cry on!

how many POINTS can I have?
I cannot afford to join weight watcher's so I am using this site. How do I figure out how many points I can have? Is it a daily point system or weekly? Now that I am armed with the weight watcher's cookbook and know I can eat lean cuisines, I am ready to go but I suppose it would be senseless if I don't know how many points I can have.

High School Kid in NEED of some Breakfast
South Beach Diet makes and sells meal replacement bars. they are a good size and I like them better than any granola bar. I live in a small town but our grocery store carries them so you should be able to find them. they are in the diet area where slim fast products are sold. I recommend the peanut butter bar that is dipped in a bit of chocolate!

Juice Fast – One day a week
Fasting is very popular in some religions. Whether religious or not, I think the point is to try and learn to focus on other priorities/goals/hopes. Some fast on water and a piece or 2 of plain toast as well. Personally, I have tried it with beer --- I think I'm missing something there!Embarassed

I have the weight watcher's cookbook and spent yesterday trying recipes. they were pretty tasty so i decided on the weight watcher's program. HOWEVER, I have no intention of joining weight watchers and i do not have a scale. would i be better off with the WOUTH BEACH DIET? Thanks!
