My WOE is now easy for me as it was never a diet but a plan of eating that fits me. Diets do not work. I still have a long ways to go on the fitness and it will be a lifetime to keep that fitness and weight. I used have chronic pain and what a difference!

My WOE has become increasingly vegetarian, though I still do meat now and then in small amounts. I've decreased dairy as I have found it increases asthma symptoms. I find that prepping some foods on weekends so ready for the work week is mandatory. A couple dishes that can be used for lunches and quick dinners all week is so helpful.

This journey has changed my life in so many positive ways. It's not just a weight loss journey but one to face all your demons and in the end be a more positive person feeling good about yourself and your world.

I am currently single 68 yo with 10 grandchildren (2 are steps), 3 great step great grandchildren. I live with a chatty and very onery Quaker Parrot and a little girl boston terrier mix born 3-31-13 and a hound mix rescue pup born in July 2015 and a crazy cat. Both of my pup girls are very active and funny.

I now have 4 chickens, one is a rooster and will be re-homed as I cannot keep him in the city. I still need to finish building their run this spring and put some finishing touches on their coop, and re-do the doors as I'm not happy with them. They started laying Christmas Eve so now I have totally fresh eggs.

AHH sounds like you are a tax preparer. I'm on the other end working in a customer service area for 47 mutual fund companies. Ours is crazy this time of year with everyone needing information. So a store, a church and taxes: you are busy!! finding time to workout and still get everything else done also is my challenge as well. I'm trying to be better at it again.

Sleep is hard sometimes. Even with just working one full time job, the overtime and keeping up with my house, animals, trying to get in exercise and healthy meals, and every other thing in a life. There never seems to be time in a day for everything. How do you do it with 3 jobs?

3 jobs WOW!! Remember sleep helps one lose weight also as well as makes for a healthier person.

I have not read all the posts here but keep in mine that processed food have chemicals in them that make them addictive and also have lots of sodium in them. My suggestion is to prepare your food from real ingredients and eat during the day. Studies have shown for one that your brain functions better with fuel during the day. Take a serious look at what foods you like and how you and your family cook. Take steps to change to avoid processed foods. Those have lots of chemicals to addict you to them. Just my take on the world.
