DFHALL, your accounting of dieting successfully until you hit the wall is probably appropriate to most of us here (I know I have done the same over and over). I have also come to the place where I just want to get it done.
I don't have tons of weight to lose but I am just tired of always dieting. I want to get it done and be done with it. Do you know what I mean?
I have gone back to Weight Watchers which seems to be the most realistic program out there but I use Sparkpeople for motivation.
I know you can do it! Keep pushing! And, thanks for posting.
