I go to weight watchers and the day I weigh in I can have whatever I am craving but only on that day. Works for me. Exercise is a must. Takes a while but you do feel so much better. Good LuckView Thread
You are not alone. I am 62 and I quit dieting and I am making changes for my health. It isn't easy as you know. I go to weight watchers and weigh in faithfully. I hit a plateau and still go. I am determined to not gain back what I lost. Like you I have been on many diets and lost weight only to gain it back and more. I finally decided to make changes for my health. I am diabetic and I have come off my medicine, at least some of it. I, too, am an emotional eater, I took up crochet and knitting to keep my hands busy and away from the fridge. Walking helps too.View Thread
It is difficult to get off meds but it is doable. Don't give up, I got off Actos entirely(good now they show it can cause heart attacks and strokes) . I cut glyburide in half. the Doctor says if I can keep it up I may be off all diabetes II meds. What a worthy goal. The key for me is portion control and exercise. Good Luck and Don't give up!!!View Thread
