If you don't learn from your mistakes, what's the point in making them?

Raggdoll, I had to ask somebody how to do that. I apologize, but I don't recall exactly how I did it. I asked on one of the message boards and somebody answered me. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help.

i also have had a weight problem for all my life. sparkpeople is the first time i have lost and KEPT it off. love them. what has helped me is the food log and the on line journal. i agree to start slow and try to change your mindset from dieting ( it is depriving) to life style changes. do one small change at a time and when that becomes comfortable, add one more. best of luck to you. emoticon

Mrisdal, I agree whole heartedly. My greatest tools are my measuring cups and spoons. Proper portions and staying within my calorie ranges have helped me to take off 115 pounds over the course of the last several years. I now wear a smaller size than I did in high school. I too began to feed my whole family the way that I now eat. It makes it so much easier to make one meal rather than 2 and nobody complains. My 3 teenage sons have commented on more than one occasion that they eat better now than they ever have and enjoy my new recipes.

Just take it one step at a time. Start small - finding out what the right portions are is a great one. I was really surprised once I put a measuring cup to a few foods. Increasing veggies and fruits is a good one, too. I also found that having the whole family change eating habits made it easier on me. I have three kids myself (four if you count my husband!) Remember it is a lifestyle change and not a "diet". Hang in there and you will do it!

Hang in there. Once you get all of the other things under control you'll surely see the weight loss. For now just try to focus on becoming healthier!

Spent my whole life being large. My mom put me on a diet in high school, mentioning that my backside looked like the back of a bus. Still struggling with it today....the weight loss/weight gain cycle. Now an insulin-dependent diabetic, wear cpap mask to sleep to help with sleep apena, and wonder if I will ever getting my eating disorder under control. As a 47 year old mother of five, I am hoping to just to learn to enjoy eating healthy and getting exercise. My goals have gone from weight loss to gaining my muscle strength, flexibility, heathy eating habits and feeling better physically, emotionally, spiritually...but a little weight reduction would be nice to.
