I was on this forum five years ago and saw I had lost about 40 pounds - now after going up and down, up and down, I am back to the original weight from that year (although I have been about 15 pounds heavier).
I hit the big 60 this year and it is not as easy as it once was to lose the weight. However, lately I have been obsessed with sweets!!! I am an artist and a teacher, and when I paint I am right next to the kitchen. I take breaks and eat junk food - sometimes so much it makes me feel lousy.
I am really discouraged because I see that it seems like nothing ever works permanently - for anyone. I watch Dr. Oz, all the shows and see the people just gain it back again. It is food addiction and there seems to be little hope for a permanent cure. Anyone else feel this way?
