Don't let what you want right now- control what YOU WANT THE MOST!!

I have lost over 100 pounds- I was down to 156, but gained 14 pounds back- so I am now starting my new journey- my final journey at 170- I am working to get to a weight that I am happy with and then learn how to maintain it for the rest of my life- I AM A FOOD ADDICT! I love to touch it- I love to taste it- I love to smell it- so I am having to reset my body and spend some time just eating to live- not living to eat- This is a lifetime journey- and one that I have battled for all my life ...

I love to touch it- I love to taste it- I love to smell it- so I am having to reset my body and spend some time just eating to live- not living to eat- This is a lifetime journey- and one that I have battled for all my life for the most part- I am accepting the fact that I will be a person that will have to track, measure and analyze what I am putting into my body for the rest of my life- I am ok with that- It is worth it- to love how I look- To feel like my husband is proud to have me on his arm- For my kids to say......THAT IS MY MOM :) My self esteem is gaining every pound that I am losing- I am trying to remember that I do not need to let what I want RIGHT now control what I want the MOST- I am looking for encouragement- and to give encouragement- We are all on this website for the same reason- to get healthier- to love ourselves more- Lets get this done :)

Things have been a bit erratic lately. I'll have a few good days/weeks, followed by a few bad ones. I have problems staying consistent with my eating...it's much easier for me to keep up with my running, which is going really well.

How are you?

I'm glad to know I can help get some people back to sparking, I really try. I hope you are doing well. Thanks about the car. She got a small booboo on my road trip over the weekend, but it could have been worse.

Right back atcha! emoticon I admit, I stalked your pics and you have been on an amazing journey that is absolutely inspirational! Beautiful before, beautiful now and you just glow like the sun! A huge congratulations on all you have accomplished and your dedication to getting where you want to be! emoticon

But food, ahhh food! I'm the kinda person who loves going to the grocery store just so I can see all the wonderful varieties and I spend hours (literally at least 2!) just imagining the combinations of texture, flavor, mouth feel and aroma. Love to cook, love to bake, love to experiment and sad to say, love to eat! Such a terrible tragedy that something so enjoyable can be such a downfall. emoticon

I do the 4HB slow carb eating plan 6 days out of the week where I eat a rather structured food plan, but for one glorious day, I eat whatever I want within moderation. It's the only plan I've been able to work with and would have already been successful if I didn't allow myself to give in to my addiction. But it's the start of week 3 and I've already lost half the weight I gained back and soon I'll be back to where I was before I fell prey to my own greed and gluttony.

Here's hoping we both get to our goals and enjoy a successful maintenance plan! I know we can do this! emoticon

UGHH I do the same thing!!! if I eat one bad meal I just hang it up the for rest of the day! I am not a good one at giving advice for that because I am horrible at it! I will say- you lost 8 pounds!! WOW!!! That is sooooo awesome! I would kill to lose 8 lbs at this point! I have been stuck at 170 for like over a year!! I just cant get out !! I would just keep telling yourself to keep your mind on the results and the scale and how happy you feel when you step on with a great loss!! you got this!!
