To the END

Over the last few years I've vacillated between being "obese" and "over weight", never making it to "normal". After I lose a good amount of weight - 30 lbs. or so - I find something in me resisting; and I get obsessive about food --- eating, eating, eating until I've gained most (or all) of the weight back.
As I round the clubhouse turn toward my 60's, it is time to get to a normal weight NOW and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The body parts are starting to creak and rebel for what I ...

As I round the clubhouse turn toward my 60's, it is time to get to a normal weight NOW and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The body parts are starting to creak and rebel for what I have and am putting them through.
I do well when I have a tangible, desirable goal, e.g., taking a trip that requires a lot of walking for which I want to get in shape. Unfortunately, after the trip, I start to slide again. I definitely need to change my goal/reward strategies.

I didn't give pizza up for good either, and we've had our collisions...like on Good Friday, when we went to Chuck E. Cheese for a family outing with the kiddos, and my behavior at that pizza buffet did NOT make for a Good Wednesday on the scales the following week. My "give-ups" are not necessarily "never-agains..." but I have given them a back seat and don't eat them the way I used to. This will work for you if you work it, as they say, and I wish you well on your give and take!
