Hi and welcome DOXMOM51! I used to be extreme too... either I would eat whatever I felt like and say "who cares" or I'd go on extreme diets (and then wonder why I couldn't stick with them). This time around I didn't take that route and I learned that I can live a healthy lifestyle while still enjoying myself, the two were not mutually exclusive.
Moderation in all things! Great goal to work toward. I tend to be one extreme or the other which leads to over indulging in food and drink and saying to myself, "who cares". Look forward to chatting and sharing the fun on Spark People. Karen
