I believe a diet should be like a husband. You should choose the one you can picture yourself staying with for life, and you don't want the one you feel the need to cheat on.

For me, for now, that seems to be mostly plant-based, as much of it whole food as I can manage. It seems to work for me, because I've never been a big meat eater, I've never met a fruit or vegetable I didn't like, and I really prefer a lot of vegetarian and vegan foods. I wouldn't say I follow any form of structured diet, but just try to choose foods I feel are good for my health.

I love activity -- hiking, skiing, walking -- but I'm not diligent about "exercise." Something to work on. I'm a continual work in progress.

I'm about balance when it comes to eating and exercise. I agree with Dr. Yoni Freedhoff that the goal is to achieve your lowest happy weight -- the weight that allows you to be as healthy as possible without becoming obsessive or turning your entire life into a weight loss goal. We'll see where my happy weight turns out to be.

At my heaviest, I was just over 200 pounds, but a big chunk of that was medically induced, and it's been many years since I weighed that much. In 2019, I was back up to 180 thanks to a foot injury and menopause. My knees started buckling on stairs, so I decided to lose.

Hoping to find some support here, and hoping to offer some to others.
