  • Deciding what you're going to do after your goal has been reached is REALLY important. Some years ago I lost 50 lbs on a diet. Then after I was done, I magically gained 30 back. Very quickly. I was really disappointed. But it finally became clear to me then that I was an emotional eater. I would binge eat every night after I came home from work. I would make a couple of helpings of pasta (huge helpings mind you) and plop down in front of the TV. I decided I had to take a look at what was causing me to binge eat on on carbs all the time. So I did a life inventory and used energy psychology techniques to release the subconscious anxiety and depression that was causing me to binge. I'm very near my goal weight now, but even better, I don't binge any more. And I'm not pre-occupied with my next meal either. A by-product of dealing with my emotions has been more happiness and more satisfaction in my relationships and career. I would recommend that anyone who is a serial dieter examine why they are yo-yo-ing in the first place, so thay can put an end to it once and for all. Good luck to all the sparkers out there. You can do it! - 9/3/2012 1:32:03 PM
  • Good ideas to incorporate into your life.
    But don't wait till the final goal is reached. Once you start to lose and you have the energy to get out, do so.
    I had 200 lbs to lose. After the first 100 I felt strong enough even though I was still using a cane and walker, to get out and about. I could move easier, breath, fit in the seats, use the safety belt. Being active and participating in everyday events made me more determined to strive for my goal.
    I did reach it, with a stop along the way to have my knees replaced. That was the catalyst to propel me in to high gear. I haven't stopped challenging myself . I love life and intend to enjoy each and every day.
    Don't wait, if you don't have too.
    Be strong, stay positive.

  • These are all great ideas, but DON'T wait until you reach goal weight to start achieving them!!!!! Go for it now and Seize the Day. It will only encourage you on your weight loss journey, and self esteem should not be wrapped around a number on the scale. Love your self NOW and love the commitment you are putting forth to become a more healthy person for life.
    Life is too short to wait (for weight)!!!! - 9/3/2012 11:01:32 AM
