Great article! Plan your work and work your plan Report
thank you for sharing Report
After, years and years of trying to lose weight. This article must have been written for me. I like the suggestion of creating a plan and a vision for myself. Having a positive can do attitude does help and I am a believer in "What you think about, YOU bring about." Report
I have never had a weight problem, 2 years ago I got pleurisy which led to chronic pneumonia, which led to a total of 4 blood clots in both lungs. I was in hospital for 3 weeks on oxygen & 3 weeks later stopped using the walker I borrowed. It took me 8 months before I could start my usual diet & daily exercise I did before including daily walking. I had extreme pain to walk to the kitchen to eat or cook, I could walk very little, so I gained 40 pounds. I am 55. The year after I finished high school I went to a size 12 and had gained 10 pounds. So 50 pounds total. I was size 10 in school. I stayed size 12 for over 30 years & went to size 18 in 8 months because of health problems only. I lost the 40 pounds I gained because of my health now & am size 10, same as high school now & look forward to losing 10 more pounds, my final goal. In 2 years I gained & then lost 40 pounds. My goal is to lose the 10 pounds by summer. I went up to size 18. I still have the same health problems. I walk slow daily & do exercise at the gym at the fat burning zone. I have lost 10" off my waist & body fat went up to 52% & back down to 28% now. I do not expect a problem with my goal weight. What is difficult is learning how to lose weight for the first time in my life. When I reach my goal I see no problem keeping it off. Report

Great article! Report
I hate the statistics about successful weight loss. Just like every house is different because it's in a different location, every weight loss journey is different because every loser is different. Report
