Wow -- great posts and thank you for giving me what I asked for. Made me think. Made me wonder why I keep doing this to myself. Made me realize that I am letting food control me and since I'm definitely on the control freak side of life, I'm amazed I've let this happen.
Last year when I was losing easily (OK, maybe that should be losing.....it's never easily) I realized that I had a weight loss buddy. We checked in every week via facebook and reported on how much weight we'd lost that week. Anybody -- or everybody -- want to buddy up and report in as to how much we lost this week. I know we all do this on an occasional basis, but I'm proposing a more formal every Friday (or whatever day is best) we come clean with what we've lost (or even gained if need be) that week. Hope someone wants to do this. I don't know if it was the competitive side of me or the knowing I HAD to report or what, but I definitely did better.
