I think about how I will feel after eating a particular food.
If it is a negative sensation, I don't eat that food.
Today, after losing over 80 pounds, going back to a size 2X is not happening.

I have been at a plateau for over a month now.

5/1 - 152
5/7 - 151
5/15 - 150
5/29 - 149
6/12 - 150
6/22 - 149

Happiness is remembering what I really want.
Laughter is the best medicine. The best things in life are free.

Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.

Dream with no action = wishful thinking
Action with no plan = chaos
Dream + action + persistence = success

The ego tells me you can't do it. The spirit tells me I can.

Each time I say "no" to impulse eating, I will visualize fat melting off my body.

I never realized that i didn't use dates. lol That is a good thing. I have plans on losing and getting it together. I know the road will get tough at times but that is why i am on SP. I have to believe i am here to stay and i really feel i am gonna do it this time. What scares me is the maintaining the weight loss. But i will cross that road when i get there.

Yes, any time is a good time to start. Dee - you are an inspiration. Yes, it is going to take work but it also can be fun at the same time. I like the way you listed your weight loss. No dates, no ups and downs. You just stay focused on your successes and weight loss.

My starting weight was 154.

1. 154
2. 152
3. 150
4. 148

This week I am working on eating slowly and savoring each bite. I have really enjoyed each meal. Imagine -- enjoying your meals and losing weight at the same time.

I seem to keep going up so now I'm going to try and join on the 2 pound loss...
Starting weight: is my baselfine 145.51 (the highest I've been...)

Can I still join?

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your
life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on,
rely on, or blame. The gift is yours -- it is an amazing
journey -- and you alone are responsible for the quality of
it. This is the day your life really begins."

New goals:
Eat Positively
Exercise daily (that one is already achieved)
Experiment with 3-5 meals a day
Avoid binge for at least 3 weeks.

Great. We can motivate each other.

My last glucose test came back high. This was the extra motivation I needed. I went to the library and looked up what I could do about it. Basically, it is exercise regularly and lose weight.

I already have heart failure and do not want to add being diabetic so I am doing whatever it takes to lose at least 10 pounds. Right now I am concentrating on 2 pounds at a time.
emoticon I must be one of the slowest losers but that is ok. This is how I have done this month:
5/ 1 - 152
5/15 - 150 - first two pounds gone

5/19 - 149.6
5/20 - 149.4
5/21 - 149.1
5/22 - 149.1 - said "no thanks" to birthday cake at a party.
5/23 - 149.1 - had virtual binge
5/24 - 149.0 - cancelled pity party
5/25 - 148.9 - I didn't put on all this weight quickly and it won't come off quickly either.
5/26 - 148.8 - I am learning patience
5/27 - 148.2 - I ate a modest portion of spaghetti. I have power over food.
5/28 - 148.0 - I was doing the happy dance because I lost my second two pounds but later in the day my mood got negative. I took a walk and ignored my negativity.
5/29 - 148.6 - Even though I stayed in calorie range the scale showed a 0.6 gain. That is ok because it is just water. I am still doing good.

When I was younger and healthier, losing weight was no problem. Now it is a different story. One of the side effects of my medication is weight gain plus I now have to live a sedentary life. So losing weight is now a tad more difficult but not impossible.

When I set my mind to something, I can do it. I just needed to set my mind to losing some weight and keeping it off. emoticon
