I think recognizing that you will be a recovering obese person is a fantastic realization. Probably every one of us has lost weight before and gained it back. I think we do it because we think we've gotten to the end and can now eat and do whatever we wish. Why not? Skinny people eat dessert, why shouldn't I? Skinny people have second helpings, why shouldn't I? Net result is gaining it all back.

Realizing now that this is going to be a lifetime effort may be the thing that helps you keep the weight off.

I love the shower as "me time". I work with my husband and when he asks me why I have to take a shower when we get home, I always reply "to get away from you". He knows I'm just playing with him but everybody needs a few minutes without the world intruding.

Current Weight: 144 lbs.
