I can only lose slowly. Not the type you can starve myself following a fad diet. Just don't have the willpower, I like the taste of food too much. Going slow makes more sense & I can do this be eating moderate portions. Glad this means I'm less likely to regain the pounds I'm working so hard to make go away.
I agree totally. Thanks for sharing.
Consider the fact that it took time to create the body you now want to recreate.
Sometimes slow is frustrating, but the benefits of slow weight loss are wirth it.
Thanks for a great article!
This is a good uplifting article. It's good to know you are doing the right thing. Thanks SP.
Good need-to-know information!
Read this again and no matter how many times I read it I have to say "YEAH!"
I did lose the weight slowly finally realizing that what I did to lose it was what I'd do forever so there was no hurry.
Here I am 6 1/2 years later having kept off over 80 lbs.
Fast is the only way I've ever been able to lose weight...and yes, I've gained it all back and then some.
