Deb - thanks so much for your complements and for checking out my website!

djl1001 - I have a hard time releasing weight as well. Don't worry, it will come off - true permanent weight loss comes through PERSISTENCE and work! Meanwhile, are you keeping a journal of your food and exercise? Do you eat a good breakfast? Are you exercising at a high level of intensity (but not too high)? I suggest using www.fitday.com to keep track of your food and exercise -- and it helps to write down your thoughts in a journal as well. Have you read "Make the Connection" by Bob Greene and Oprah Winfrey -- there's some really good common-sense advice in there! You may also want to check www.oprah.com -- I don't watch the show myself (since I'm usually at work) but I've heard from MANY people how terrific her last three Tuesday shows with Dr. Phil were. Here are the links to the Oprah.com archive pages for those shows:

Part 1 - http://www.oprah.com/tows/pastshows/..._20010130.html

Part 2 - http://www.oprah.com/tows/pastshows/..._20010206.html

Part 3 - http://www.oprah.com/tows/pastshows/..._20010213.html

And remember -- we're all here for you, with the same struggle! Keep it up - maybe tweak your diet a bit, add more fiber, fewer simple sugars - find an exercise you love and the weight will come off!
