I Beleive I can Fly !

''You can''t lose weight. You''ve never stuck with anything in your whole life.'' Those words haunt me all the time-every time I slip and eat something I know I shouldn''t. I hate it when people think I''m too weak to succeed in my diet. I hate it even more when I prove them right. Still, being ashamed of failing at my diet is often good for me. If I am ashamed enough, then it helps me stick with it the next time.

My name is LaRaine I''m 55 years old and I''m from Kansas. I would have to say that most all the women in my family are or were heavy. I was always told to clean my plate even if I was full. I do not know if heredity is one of the causes of my weight problems or not but who am I kidding I was FAT cause I couldn''t stop eating. After I was married, we decided I would stay at home and raise the family. I weighed 180 pounds then and by the time I had our third child I weighed 280. I hardly ever went out I would nibble on something all the time I could have eaten all day and emptied the fridge if I hadn�t held myself back some. Therefore, I started getting even larger the situation was catastrophic!!

Well it is Monday yet again,I I hope you were able to get some relaxation time in for yourself, without loosing sight of your goal. I hope you have a great Labor Day! It is time for holidays to start coming back to back (it seems) and If you are like me I love to eat a lot. Well here is a few ways to help stay on track, Use a white smaller plate you will thank you have filled it up and actually be eating less then if you fill up a colored larger plate. Remember drink plenty of water and keep on exercising! emoticon
