performance: losing 1.2 lb a week

I just turned 50. In the past dozen years, I have lost weight twice, gotten to my ideal weight, maintained for several years, then gained it back each time during very stressful periods in my life. I am obviously a comfort-eater. But because of a hereditary skin disease, I also am a vegetarian who eats cheese and eggs but no animals. My dietary nemesis is bread and cheese--I love them! I tell myself I am eating healthy because I mostly use whole grains, but I eat a lot of them. And since I can't eat meat, I eat cheese with very little restraint. I know that moderation is the key to a healthy life, but I have been unwilling to let my reason overtake my emotion and live what I know.

My oldest daughter and I are participating in this website to get in better shape for my second daughter's wedding this May. I hope that just connecting with other people and reminding myself of the good things I know will produce positive results toward the goal of becoming the best me!
