I have been fighting my weight since I was born. With a DNA that causes me to have a very low metabolism, and living in the South with GREAT food, it is very difficult.

I think, though, that Ihave finally found the "key" for me! Everyday I track, in my thread at Kitty Haven forum, what I have eaten, the exercise I have done, meds taken, water etc.

I mostly eat low fat and take in between 1200-1500 calories a day. Every other Sunday, I have a cheat day--eat whatever I want and I don't weigh or track anything!! I've now lose from 330 to 278. Yes, it's been up and down over the past couple of years as I created new recipes and tastes, went through life trials (such as losing my job and some medical problems, plus the deaths of Indy and Merlyn, two very loved and missed kitties), but overall, I'm going down and not up, and now it is has become almost second nature to eat right.

In fact, it has now become so "easy", that I am now in danger of thinking I've got everything under control and I might end up falling off the wagon, so I have to be especially mindful of the pitfalls.

One thing that has really helped a lot is my swimming pool. It is one of the larger "ring" above-the-ground pools, but since I am short, it is perfect for me. I LOVE IT! I swim and exercise between 2-8 hours each week. I so dread fall...hope we have a slow fall and that I can swim at least through September!

    Seriously, normally my libido hovers at about .5 percent... Just not interested at all...but I sure love looking at those two! And I LOVE the story lines. That is one show that always delivers!

    What are commercials? I DVR everything, so I skip right through commercials. I exercise DURING the show. lol

    Supernatural is a keeper!!
    It comes on here Mon-Fri at 10 & 11. I try to make sure i have in 30 minutes of walking before i sit & watch.
    During the commercials i do my hand weights, next commercial i do stairs. Back & forth like that for 2 hours.
    Plus while i am down stairs i get the laundry on to wash & dry, haul the clothes up stairs to fold. It works for me, i get my work done & get to watch Sam & Dean. lol Pretty nice eye candy huh?

    You know you & i could veg-out in front of the tube & enjoy the heck out of everything we watch. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon . emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
