A friend of mine has managed to keep off the 100* pounds that she lost nearly 20 YEARS ago. She told me that the single most important thing that she does is weigh herself EVERY MORNING. If she's gone up a pound or two, she eats less and exercises more. If she starts to feel less firm, she increases the exercise. If she wants to eat something special like a Peanut Buster Parfait (her weakness!), she plans for it and eats fewer calories that day and the day after. She told me that she thinks of those extra pounds that she lost as the enemy. She watches for that enemy by keeping a daily ritual of weighing herself.

I know that I had a handle on my weight until I got lax and stopped weighing myself. (I didn't want to know that I had gained weight and THOUGHT I could just "tell" from the fit of my clothes.) That obviously didn't work for me as well as I THOUGHT it was working because I put on 100 pounds over the course of my 30-year marriage!
