I've been trying to lose my extra weight for about 19 years now...weight watchers (eight times in one year)....LA weight loss...Richard Simmons..Jenny Craig...atkins...almost every diet I've ever heard of......I'm soooo lost I don't know what to eat anymore...I have lost about 21 lbs from my highest weight over the years but I just need to see some quick changes...I know slow is better but the thought of another fat,uncomfortable summer is just not thrilling...sorry to sound so disgusted but they are my deep true feelings about my weight....heeeeeeellllllppppp. shirl2sam
I've been on a lot of diets over the years. Atkins and calorie counting mainly. Rinse repeat. I'm using intuitive eating now and it's the best thing I've ever done. It's living in maintenance. I'm using Paul McKenna where part of the program is feeling good about yourself right now. Not just for what your body looks like but what it can do. And it's about enjoying life, having a good relationship with food and your own body's hunger and nutrition signals. It does require exercise, but something that you enjoy.
I have been losing fairly quickly, but with IE - you have to accept that you'll lose at the rate you lose. That's kind of the tricky bit.

Celebrate your progress thus far and maybe make small changes in your diet over time. If you are looking for faster change, I suggest checking out the book Wheat Belly. The last ten pounds I lost came off quickly by cutting wheat from my diet on most days. Good luck and keep at it.
