Where R U From????
I would like to send a big hug out to all the UK'ers. My grandparents were from Bradford and Leeds. I had the chance to visit in 2004 and I absolutely loved it! I visited York as well. We met so many wonderful and friendly people. I hope to visit again soon. I grew up in southern Indiana and now live in northern Ohio. As you can imagine it was an interesting mix of accents in our house at Christmas, grandma and grandpa with their English accents and my brother and I with our American Indiana/Kentucky accents!

out of control
Hi Michele,
I'm a double "L" Michelle. I know exactly what you are talking about! I'm 45 and I can't tell you how often I have gained and lost the same weight. That's why we have to be here for one another. We all know this dance!! I have dropped 50 pounds, but the doctor informed me that I am not longer OBESE just OVERWEIGHT. Well if that doesn't make you want to head to Steak N Shake! My ego was really deflated. I still have 40 to 45 pounds to go. I'm sure to be here all the way with you and many others putting one foot in front of the other and moving ahead. We can do this. It takes time and emotional eating is tough. I started listening to mp3 motivation mp3's. I download them offline to my mp3 player when I need to relax and re-center myself.
Take care and keep writing.

Unhealthy dieting vs healthy eating - how do you get the right balance?
Hi All,
I have lost the same 50 pounds over and over again for years! Over the last year, this is the first time that I have maintained and continued to lose the weight in a way that does not seem restrictive. The weight loss has been very slow. I have lost 50 pounds in that year and I still have 40 to 45 to go. What was really frustrating was, at first no one could even tell I was losing weight unless they had not seen me in a while!
Now having settled into Weight Watchers, I eat anything I want for the most part with portion control, but I weight myself everyday. Sometimes it's not pretty. But I don't feel weak, deprived or retricted. I hate that diet feeling of being weak and having no energy. That always caused me to give up before. Being a mom and working full-time, I needed my energy. I want to eat carbs once in a while, I want dairy once in a while and I want sugar once in a while. I have friends who are doing great on Atkins and they definitely lost weight more quickly than I did at first. But I think overall, I feel better. I think you have to decide if your body can deal with it and weather this is a diet or lifestyle change. For me, it has to be a lifestyle change. I just carry too much extra weight if I'm not careful. I still have a long road to travel.

All or Nothing Dieters?
Anyone else out there having trouble with the "All or Nothing" dieting? I either seem to eat everthing in site or absolutely nothing. I'm afraid that once I allow myself to eat, I won't be able to stop. I even had a dream that I ate ONE meal and gained back all 45 pounds that I lost in one meal!

I still have a lot of weight to loose and I'd like to be a little more sane.

Thanks much.

Anybody Agoraphobic?
I'm not agorohobic, but I am a homebody. To make it worse, I work at home! So, to challenge myself, I bought a little motion detector for the body. It's kind of like a pedometer, but a little more high tech in that it measures all motion. It's called a BioTrainer. I don't work for them or sell them etc. And I had a lot of trouble getting one shipped to me that worked when it was delivered. When one finally arrived that did work. It was great. Just take a baseline for a couple of days and then try to increase your movement. You input your weight & your age and it shows little dots to help remind you to move!! In all fairness to BioTrainer. Our weather was very cold here and I think the circuit boards were freezing during delivery. Really you could do the same thing with just a cheap pedometer and try to add steps each day. One of the best ones I have used came in my kids Happy Meal from McDonalds!

This really works. Just put it on first thing in the morning, check it thoroughout the day and add steps each day. Wear it during your workout etc.

Hope this helps!Very Happy
