I have the same problem . . . it's the time I'm mostly like to graze.

I think it's a problem for me because I have an early breakfast, a mid-morning snack and then lunch. If I don't eat something about that time of day, I end up eating too much at dinner because I'm so hungry. I've been trying to have something healthy around 4:00 to quiet the munches until dinnertime. I'm not always successful -- but it's a work in progress!!!

What's been bothering me lately is how I fail to stay on track in late afternoons. I don't know if I need to eat dinner earlier or what, but the time from 3:00 - 6:00 is a problem lately. Hopefully I can get back on track and work through that!

This is an interesting question emoticon

I could probably go off on a tangent, but really . . . . . life's too short!!

It bothers me that I keep comparing myself to others. We are individuals -- with different body types and lifestyles. For some people, losing weight and exercise is a no brainer. I admire those people that LOVE to exercise. I have yet to feel any endorphins!! And as far as losing weight -- it is a challenge every day. When I first started to gain weight, I didn't think about it because I never thought I'd be 'obese'. Such an ugly word. Consequently, the weight kept adding up until I realized that the me I see in my head is NOT the me that everyone else sees. I'm not that 125 lb person any more.

It's difficult to remember that it went on slow over many years -- so it's going to take time coming off. I'm impatient. I want to be thin N-O-W!! I DON'T WANT TO BE HEAVY ANY MORE. Reality check -- it isn't going to happen fast. I need to remember that, so . . . I do the best I can, taking it one day at a time. It will happen.

Katie ---- you're a strong woman. I understand your frustrations. It's difficult to find the balance of food and exercise and what will work for you.

My mom has been seeing a dietician since January. My mom is 90 and suffers from arthritis. She figured that if she could lose weight, it would help the pain. Her dietician taught her about portion control and the importance of increasing fruits and vegetables. She also said it is OK to have dessert: cookies, cake, ice cream candy -- just not every day and to watch the portion sizes. She taught her how to read food labels. At the age of 90 with NO exercise, my mom has lost 12 pounds!!

You can do this Katie -- you just need to be patient and lean on your SP Friends!!

Katie, this may be an answer you can accept or not. Its crazy but what is working for me is. I have changed my life choices among other things when it comes to food. I eat from time i wake up to time i go to bed an this month have lost 5 pounds. I am a vegan. I eat no dairy what so ever or not one thing that is meat or has to with meat. I do eat chocalet but its vegan an i dont have it all the time. I dont eat to many prepackaged foods because all the chemicals arnt good for you. I dont eat the refind suger because it is refind throygh char witch isessentially burnt bones of animals. If you have time an can pull up youtube an do a search cruielty to animals an you will be stunned at whats done to pigs, cows an chickens befor you eat them. I can go on
But if you choise to not go vegan to lose any kind of weight takes a change in your diet. An a change you can maintain for a life time. Hope this helps. If you got questions send me mail or go to my sparks page an join thr group diet an nutrien for vegetarians/vegans i think i got the name right. Its the group on my page with a orange an smily face of veggys. That team is good about post An theres alot of people there that could answer some question much better than me because im a month in of becomimg a vegan an about a month in of being on spark an these people have helped me learn alot.

Right now I'm really fed up of being fat, I've put on 2 stone this year and I never thought that I'd be this big, ever!

It's getting me down that I don't know how to lose weight anymore and I'm not confident I will. It's been a long time since I've lost any considerable amount of weight?

I have always done crash diets before now and binged on them. I don't feel like I know how to eat normally anymore, it's really hard to eat normally for me because once I start eating it's hard to stop myself!

I need help, I seen a dietician once and she just said 'eat normally' and 'smaller portions' but it's hard. I do have days when I really crave chocolate at time of month and days when I really want comfort food. I need to learn to get it right.
