saladmaker, i weighed myself today and lost 1 pound over the weekend !!! of course that's always the easiest one to lose but it's a start. i avoided junk food and sweets at night, which is my worst time. i had yogurt and fruit. i think i will focus on night time eating until i form better habits. 28 days to break a habit......we'll see
good morning saladmaker2, wow 130lbs, i think you are my new hero !! I need to lose 50 lbs to bring me into a healthy weight range but i want to start with focusing on 10 pounds. about 4 years ago i had a mild heart attack @ 59. at the time i weighed around 174 (my highest ever) I lost 20 pounds afterwards just from the medications and depression. Once I got through that I was doing great. Over the past 3 years I have put on 40 pounds I believe mostly from the medications. I now weigh 194 (my new highest ever). i've started over and over again but i think i am at the point now where i really want to commit to this. I'm bad with sweets also but my biggest problem is night time eating. I am working on getting that under control first. I know it is about 75% of my weight problem. i am also working on writing down everthing i eat and adding up calories. that seems to be an important part to this. wishing us both success and hoping to hear from you often, marionView Thread
Night time is my donwfall. I can go all day being very good but from dinner time until sleep all I want to do is eat. Maybe it's a release of stress from work during the day, maybe it's boredom, maybe I need to change the kind of foods I eat for dinner, I don't know. Whatever the cause, it has become an extemely hard habit to break. I do know that if I can get this problem under control the pounds will fall ooff. If anyone out there has any suggestions for me PLEASE I would like to hear from you.View Thread
