In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I have to keep reminding myself that I did not put it on overnight and it is not coming off overnight! It is hard - but at least at work - I work for a hospice (medical records) and most of the ladies there are working on their weight too. So if we eat out or send out - usually it is salads or at least lean - yesterday I went to a BBQ place and just got a plain chicken breast chopped up - that's all - it had been grilled and was pretty good.
It will just take time - my granddaughter keeps reminding me not eat certain things - she eats pretty healthy all by herself - she loves fresh fruit and that is all she wants for lunch at school and cheese.
I wish you luck with your health concern, it is so hard, but you need to take one day at a time, maybe one hour at a time. I didn't go to WW for two weeks, I have had my grandson for several days and all my bad eating habits surfaced. I was doing okay, tacking my food, but then when he is here, I don't have time to make dinners etc, so am grabbing whatever is around. I have to stop it. I have the same amount of weight to lose as you do. I don't know how all this weight happened, it seemed that one day I woke up and there it was!

Hi Jillieane, I understand the struggle - I am trying to do it on my own - I have used Weight Watchers before - but don't have time for weekly meetings etc. I have lost this weight before by doing all of the lows - but when my dad was in his last year of life - I gained it all back and then some. I have blockage in my carotid arteries so am trying to reduce that and my weight etc. I really don't want to have the surgery to clean out the arteries!
I did not loose any weight this week - but at least I did not gain!
Welcome....I am the same age as you and have two grandsons, 14 mos. and almost 6 yrs old... we are not raising them, but I want to be around too, to see them grow up. My husband is 68. I am currently going to Weight Watchers and am struggling so with that, lose a pound, gain it back, and so it continues. I can't seem to get a grip on this weight. Good luck to you!
