Phyllis you have a wonderful husband but the truth is we all must eat to live not live to eat. I reduce my food intake and eat more heather.
My problem was that I love fruits and veggies and was always eating them, the only problem was that I was also eating a lot of rice, pasta, potatoes, and sweets. So eating all the fruits and veggies in the world, didn't make up for the fact that I was overeating in the other stuff.

My story is that my husband used to tell me that it didn't bother him whatever weight I was, as long as I was happy with it, but if I was going to moan about it, to do something about it. So I didn't moan!! Great excuse. By the way I have come to look forward to eating my veggies,

If it weren't for spices such as oregano, thyme, etc, I would STILL hate veggies. Adding these makes them more palatable for me. So, in a nutshell, every & any kind of veggie was non existent in my eating plans-------but not anymore.

I hate veggies but lately my hate is turning into a love affair. Now, I am aboard the veggie train, it really is some good stuff.
Oh yeah Daz, have to watch both output AND input...for sure! We can't defy the laws of physics...at least not YET! :-)
I've always taken a low-carb approach to managing my weight and have to admit to falling into the widespread trap of believing if I kept the carbs low I could otherwise eat whatever I want...
Yeah, riiiiight! :-)
Since joining SP I've learned to love my veggies, which has been a critical part of my success. I graze all the time...but make sure the majority of my grazing is veggies.

Before I found SP I would ask friends and associates how to loss weight. It was a fact that I had a membership to a gym and I would exercises when I could, so that was not a problem. I asked a lot of people and one of the main answers was I always got was. If you go to the gym and work out for an hour and drink a lot of water you can consume all the food that you want and you do not have to worry about a weight problem.
This is far from the truth. What is your Sunday horror weight lost story?
