The negative voices in my head are getting farther away, and I don't pay them much mind these days. Last year I weighed 232 lbs at the highest I was willing to weigh myself. I probably had been higher than that. I took off 30 lbs with the Rice Diet, but hadn't really dealt with the issues, apparently, since I gained half of it back by the time I came here. I am almost back to the 203 which I was before I hid my scale {again}. I am doing a few things together this time, including becoming friends with myself, and loving me here-and-now, not when I am thin enough. That is all such a waste of time, and it undermines ME. So, this time it's going the distance. This time, I deserve to be all that I know inside I truly am.

Late night cravings
Welcome!! Congratulations on quitting smoking! That is the kindest thing that you can do for your body. Going onto a weightloss program can help you avoid the normal gains that occur when giving up cigarettes. Sounds like you're doing well, so hang in there! I think most of us get the munchies in the evening--partly because we're tired, or bored. My best solution when I can't resist putting things in my mouth at night is to just go to bed early! It works!! Have a great week, and keep up the good work!

CBS Nightly News: The Water Myth
Well you have to drink something, and it's got to be better than sodas, coffee, and (sorry) alcohol! Milk in small doses, but come on! We're better off than we were ten years ago when we all lived on diet sodas.

Welcome to the site--you'll find lots of support and encouragement here. But I've got to say, I am always surprised when people announce that they are beginning a diet that they have no knowledge about. I am with Sararay--go read up about it yourself, and see if it sounds right to you. But this site isn't about other people telling you how to do it. We're here trying to get there ourselves, and encouraging each other on the journey. Good luck!!
