emoticon Hi and emoticon to the team. Yes, diets ARE boring because they don't teach us what we need to know, they take away all our favorite foods, and they leave us feeling starved and deprived. What works better than any diet is a lifestyle change, learning what our bodies need to keep us happy and healthy. A lifestyle change doesn't take away our favorite foods, it teaches us how to incorporate them into healthy eating by learning how to make them healthier and how to control portion sizes. A lifeftyle change means we eat delicious, healthy foods in moderate portions. A lifestyle change is a permanent way of life where a diet is only a temporary fix that comes back to bite you in the behind. emoticon

emoticon So glad you've joined us!!!

I'm doing so much better now that I've gotten it into my head that I'm eating the way I'm going to eat for the rest of my life. Nothing is off the list. I just have to figure out how to manage my triggers. This way, I won't be fighting this battle, I'll be living this lifestyle. By doing this, I've never regained the entire 150 pounds I lost. Yes, I've regained some, but I always stop myself and get back to doing what I know works ... portion control, counting my calories.

Share with us and we'll help you figure out what works for you too!

When the Dr told me I had to lose weight or have my leg operated on, he said no diets, diets don't work because they sound like bad work. No fried foods, no concentrated sweets, eat only when hungry and go for a nice long walk every day. Start with 30 min.

Welcome, Cesraney, glad you joined the Team!

I totally agree with you that it's easy to get bored with dieting. And like Renewnan, I made a lifestyle change instead of dieting.

In order to continue to be the healthiest I can be - I have to eat the way I am now or better, including tracking all the nutrition and water, otherwise over time I will become complacent and reverse the successes.

this is NOT dieting.
This is adjusted food regime.
I am eating normally. Normal food that everyone else at home is eating, the stuff I enjoy , just smaller portions, eaten more slowly so I feel full.
Yes I have a cookie or a cake, just not every day and usually planned within the calories I am allowed.
For the last few weeks I have planned in two pieces of hard candy for my sweet tooth.
it is not easy it does not always work but I am getting there.
Good luck
