Thanks. I don't want to "diet" again and again.... and just want to "be". To which my friend (a beauty guru) says "be WHAT?" Right...

Anyway, I'll check out the SparkPeople tools. I really feel like there is some component I'm missing - like a vitamin or something - :) I know that I stress-eat - and eat when I'm mad/frustrated/disgusted. And I'm not going to get rid of the stress in my life anytime soon since most of it comes from owning/operating a small business with my husband. Fortunately our children add stress only in the running we do to get them all to their respective activities on time.

Thanks for writing. Better get to work - Tammy

There is a reason diets don't work. The reason is sooner or later you fall off your diet and gain the weight back. It might work for some, but you sound like SparkPeople type of person. SP is not a diet. It's a way of life. SP teaches you how to make changes to your lifestyle that will help you loose weight and keep it off for ever. Good luck.

It maybe too late to go back and make a new start, but it's not too late to make a new ending.

Diets don't work for me. I've tried many and always ultimately fail. Right now I belong to Weight Watchers (with my husband who is having great success), and hate it. The very first night the leader asked for a show of hands of those who had at some time in the life belonged to WW. 4 out of 5 of the 50 newbies had been successful with WW at some time in their past. And I thought "WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU ALL DOING BACK HERE THEN???" Oh, I've been doing the program and I have my 5% sticker and 3 - 5lb loss stickers, but all the happy, fluffy, point-counting talk really just makes me angry.

I'm sorry. I'm in a bad place right now and want to come out. But I feel the effort of weight loss for me will always, ultimately end up failing again and I'll be searching my closet for a parcel or two of fat clothes that maybe didn't get thrown out as I celebrated success a few weeks earlier. Make sense to anyone? I know that there must be a better "fit" for me that doesn't seem futile.
