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.

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...
