Welcome Shirl!

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.

Lose 25lbs by 15 April (10 Mar)
Get to 100 kg (220) by 1 May (7 Apr)
Be 205 by race day - 14 July
One-derland by 1 Sept

I like your ideas AlmostMe! Rinse and repeat, haha, yep. A reminder I frequently need.

Shirl- They are many of our true feelings, don't feel bad about venting. I know the feeling of uncomfortable Summers though, as least we can both rest assured we are on our way! Good luck!

Hi Shirl2sam,

Wishing you success!

Did you have a favorite diet out of all of those? I mean, one you were able to stick with the longest or one that your body responded to the best?

Did you like going to Weight Watchers meetings? Was it motivational?

Have a lovely day!

Default don't be down

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.
