Welcome to the team. I find it is not about eating "diet" but watching the portions. I can eat anything I want ... in the right proportion. It is a lifestyle change, not a few months change to get the weight off. Exercise is key for me too. Best wishes for success for a lifetime.

I'm also finding it is imperative for me to measure. I haven't lost much "weight" but I'm losing inches. If I hadn't measured, I would have given up because I would have thought nothing was working.

emoticon to SP and this team. We have probably all "yo-yo" dieted and found that dieting is not the answer because to be successful we have to learn how to eat healthy. To succeed at losing the weight and keeping it off we have to create for ourselves a healthy lifestyle and a way of eating healthy that we can continue with forever. It is an interesting and exciting journey but, as with any journey, we will all hit a few bumps in the road. emoticon

I started with my resolution this year-(like so many others)--All "hell bent" and then had a little stall- Hopefully back, to "have at it" again---Good luck in your renewed efforts--We all stumble and fall--Hard to break habits, behaviors, mind sets. For me especially it's hard to turn off the switch from the way my family ate and indulged and living with someone who doesn't like many things. If it was easy or magical we'd all already be what we envision!

Hi, I'm new to this board and am hoping it will make the difference in my ultimate success on this diet

I'm 60 years old and have probably gained and lost about 300 pounds over the last 40 years ...i.e. gain 20, lose 25, gain 30, lose 15. gain 10, lose 30 etc you get the idea.

While I'm a pretty disciplined and successful dieter, i never seem to get quite to my goal and always start regaining weight before ever getting to the 'maintenence phase.

Two years ago (April 2011) I was 206. I wanted to get to 170. By July I had made it to 178 (for a couple days) and then I just lost it. Over the next 16 month I just kept putting the weight on until this Thnaksgiving when I was up to 209. I have gained 30 pounds in just 16 months,

I started again the Monday after Thanksgiving and have lost 17 lbs since, although only 2 the entire month on January.

I really think to key for me is really revving up the physical activity each day. I'm retired, so I have lots of free time for exercise, I just discovered Spin classes at my gym and am trying to go at least three or four times a week.

Be happy to hear from others who have had similar histories (and hopefully final success)
