I read that book too! I thought the psychology part was very helpful but the actual diet was so-so. I did write out all the essays and stuff in the book. That really helped me investigate my feelings about food.

Welcome back!

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

Sounds very familiar.

This is round 3 (when you add the two attempts in 2011 to start). Same story here. 2010 I hit it hard for 6 months and lost 35 lbs. I obviously used 2011 to find all of it back.

Now I am needing! to make this round work!

So, good luck in 2012!

This is my round 3 on Spark. I know, I know, so cliche to come back after the new year, but this year is different. I had some success with Spark summer of 2010 and lost some weight over a few months. I remember I reached a comfortable zone: I was 40lbs down, and could JUST BARELY fit into stores that weren't plus size, and I was happy enough with my partial success and sort of... stopped. I'm very lucky to say that i haven't gained any weight since then, but I'm still not where I should be at all.

This time, I am going to finish what I started. NOTHING IS SET IN STONE. We can change anything. I am so used to believing that I was meant to be fat and that is just the way it is, and I would just enjoy and indulge in whatever I ate and be as inactive as I wanted to be, because that's the way I was. But it was those things keeping me that way.

I am a healthy, thin gal who happened to be overweight for a very long time, but now she's getting her stuff together. I am so excited. This is it.

Also, I'm reading Dr. Phil's Ultimate Weight Solution. I think it's helping me a lot with the mental aspect of weight loss. Diet or recipe books can only take you so far...
