Thank you for your kind words, Southern Maven.

In all the years I've struggled with my weight, I've been able to hang in with portion control, counting calories, or whatever I was doing to lose the weight. But the exercise? Man, do I hate it! My late mother (may she rest in peace) used to tease me about how much I hated moving my body. She'd say "The most exercise you get is taking your gym clothes on and off!" And that is true - my loathing of exercise is legendary in my family!

Thank you for sharing your point of view. I loved the last line of your post! That's why I bolded it.
