3 years later, time passes and the pounds are creeping back. It is really easy to start increasing the portion size and forgetting about exercise. I owe it to myself to get serious once again.

Old Post:
I am 51 years old, have been overweight most of my life.
When I was at 125, (30 years ago), I also thought I was hopelessly fat. After having children I gradually, or may be not so gradually, increased my weight by about 50 pounds each time (4 children) and never really lost it. I have tried different diets and fasts, mostly below 1000cals, every time I lost any weight... and then gave up because I can't live my life eating only 1000 cals a day. For some crazy reason it never occurred to me to try loosing weight eating in a more sensible way, till Spark People!
My diet has been stricly lacto vegetarian, for health and ethical reasons, for about 35 years, I am learning a lot visiting Spark People, specially about what a "normal " portion should be.
I can't wait to post my AFTER pix! BEFORE ones were hard to find snce I usually hide behind something or someone whenever there are pictures taken.
