For the fifth time in my life, I am on my way to losing at least 120 pounds. Four avenues tried in the past: 1) HCG injections with 500 calories/no-fat diet; 2) NutriSystem; 3) Vertical-banded gastroplasty (bariatric surgery); and, 4) most recently a High-fiber/low fat restricted calorie diet; I had lost 120 lb each time and gained it back each time.

Read your note on Ramona's blog. It IS hard to eat differently than family. It CAN be a tug-of-war.

From my own experience, it is worth journaling about or blogging about to process your thoughts and feelings about finding a way to enjoy being with family as well as dealing w/ what food does for you (both the postives & negatives of each). -- For me, it is a bit of a teeter totter.

Good luck in your journey towards health and fitness!

Enjoy your day and stay healthy!
