I'm beginning to realize I need more support and help while getting back down to a healthy weight . I've become frustrated over the past few years. Because of my limitations and being a careperson for my paretns, my weight continues to go up. I am looking for another alternative to put me on the right track and help me stay focussed. Possibly giving me some tips also that will help keep my motivation up..

Well. Here I am again... hoping 2011 will be the year I will be able to remain on this journey to become as healthy as I can possibly be. My life has been a tangle of emotions lately. My mom passed away in 2008. My dad is in the late stages of alzhemiers, so i cherish every minute and every memory we are able to have together. It's frustrating when i am unable to visit dad as much as I would like to. My husband and I have now become the main caregiver to my father-in-law also. Who was recently diagnosed with the lewy body dementia another form of this horrible disease. It is hard to watch them slowly deteriate in front of us. I now have a beautiful 18 month old grand daughter, Isabel, whom I watch 3 to 4 days a week for my daughter. She is a joy and a blessing in this crazy mixed up emotional roller coaster. I am hoping to begin again to untangle and unclutter my life one day at a time.

    Chris, I was checking back on you and I hope you are doing well. This is something I learned about and am reading the book:
    Go to www.youtube.com and put in a search for ROGER GOULD.
    He has several interviews about his book "Shrink Yourself", as he is a Psychology Professor and medical doctor at UCLA School of Medicine. His book deals with EMOTIONAL EATING and why we gain the weight back again. 95% of people put it back on. The YouTube interview gives an explanation to his book.
    Keep Sparkin'
