This is day 60 and I am officially in ONEderland - if only by 1/2 lb. I have dieted ALL my life - was a fat baby, fat child, teenager, etc.... I have done every diet there is and lost and gained hundreds of lbs over the years. Finally at 57 I am back in ONEderland - been 30 years since I was in my 100's. I decided this time to do Weight Watchers - simple points and it is working. I normally go at a diet with gusto and want to lose lots quickly! If not I convince myself it isn't worth it and I will never get there and it isn't fun and I just go off and eat!!! This time I decided I would do it slow and it is working and I am not starving or eating stuff I don't like. I started with the Lean Cuisine or Smart One frozen meals. (Yes I know lots of sodium) But, they are portion controlled and have food I like. I LOVE the LC Eggroll and have one every day for 50 of the 60 days now. I enjoy what I am eating - I only eat the ones I like. I drink water (don't like but it is better than having to eat what I hate and then crave what I am NOT eating). I can eat the WW desserts and since they are individually packaged I am not overeating them. I do have one meal that I cook with real food and I am just NOT craving or wanting anything else. This just has been a blessing. My daughter and I walk our outlet mall almost every night (2 miles) and I am feeling better than I have in a LONG time. 3FC has been my comfort and I read all the new listings every day. I am really happy this time and not feeling deprived - it is just a new way of life. I never thought I would say that but I don't miss anything! Thanks for letting me share and for all of you going through this weight loss journey! I was originally at 227 and now 199 1/2.
