Well I have re traveled two miles down the olde weight loss road...I had a very hard week, but stuck it out and lost 3.9 pounds....If I added up all the weight I have lost just in the past 10 years, I could make another person...I have been writing down everything that goes in my mouth and I also jot ideas that helped me or hurt me in a journal...I plan my meals a week ahead but don't always stick to it and have found out if I don't it is much harder to get through the evenings....that is my worst time...must not go anywhere near the kitchen...There are some blogs that the girls are dealing with their weight and one of the girls is very brave...She shows a picture of her scales when she is weighing....Good for her.....Her blog is So Tired Of Weighting.....another one is
Primitive Lifestyle and then there is my Weight is over...Just click on their name to go there.....Good blogs to read if you are traveling down that road again....Tip----When you feel like you need a snack grab some sugar free gum and chew on that...It helps and chewing gum also burns calories...
