Hi, Vicki: Keep up the good work. When I even THINK about putting something that is not on my written meal plan in my mouth, I realize I HAVE TO WRITE IT DOWN, then I take a walk, and the craving is gone. Hope this helps! One day at a time!.

Wanted to say hi and let you know a little about me other than my intro.
I'm 55, soon to be 56 and I have been married 16 years to a wonderful guy that has CHF. I almost lost him 2 years ago but thankfully he made it thru and I've been working towards making healthier changes to both our diets to improve his heart strength. He's still only at 35 % and I know that's mainly because of his weight. He's well over 100 lbs too heavy and his age makes it hard for him to be willing to make changes he needs to make. And I've let myself go due to menopause, and stress eating so now it's time to finally get back into the swing of things and get this weight off once and for all.
Recently I considered staying off the scale but I've been a scale watcher for 30 years and I just don't see that changing anytime soon.
I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life and it's time I get back to a weight I know will be healthier for me. I'm working towards getting down to 185 lbs. I won't be thin but I'll be much healthier than I am now. Once I get to that weight I'll decide if I want to go lower.
