Hi Linda! I totally understand your frustration with staying the same and changing your goals. It sounded like you were blogging for me. I am 62, married but no kids. It has been over 40 years, I think, since I have been under 200 pounds.
Do you need a buddy? Maybe we could kick start each other!
Hi Linda - you can visit the clean eating website at www.cleaneatingmag.com. They sell their magazines at WalMart or most major stores. The author of the diet is Tosca Reno and she has several books out. She is also routinely featured in Oxygen Magazine (her husband is the publisher). It's a lifestyle that I am finding easy to maintain. I've lost 94 lbs over 2 1/2 years and kept it off eating this way.
Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog. I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling - FRUSTRATING !!! Beside my mental block about not wanting to do the collage (cynicism) was trying to get myself to sit down and actually do it. I finally decided I was WORTH giving myself the time to sit down and do IT. YOU ARE WORTH IT TOO!!!! Don't let negative self-talk get to you- the fact that you are still logged in to SparkPeople means you are STILL in this. AM sending you positive/encouraging thoughts-Erin 1971 days ago
