Hee hee! everyone tried losing weight but not everyone succeed. and i belong to those who do not succeed. i certainly did try everything but it seems that an aroma of a fresh donut and newly baked cake will win over this battle of "to eat or not to eat". yes, i know discipline, but how can you say no to the boxes of chocolates and pizzas, tasty home-cooked meals and many more? i am sorry but im weak....are you?

(LOL) That's very true. Once I smell or see something delicious like cakes and chocolates and other foods you mentioned, I couldn't resist but eat! I forgot about plans of dieting and cutting carbs. I am weak, too.

I have the same dilemma. I have tried every diet in the world and I still failed. Some worked but I couldn't sustain it. Whenever I will see delicious foods I couldn't help myself but to take a bite. So in the end I lost my battle, haha

I'm with you there! Before I had kids I was thin and had a hard time putting on weight, since having kids I cannot lost weight for the life of me! I try so hard sometimes and don't lose anything, so of course that just pushes me in the other direction and drowning my sorrows in chocolate...lol, not really, but I definitely crave the "good" stuff more when I'm depressed about my weight. We can't seem to figure out why I can't lose weight though, the Doctor has checked a variety of things and so far everything shows as "normal". I'm trying to figure out even, last week I worked my butt off! I was go go go all week doing stuff(physical stuff) and I ate pretty good, most people with a week like that would lose a few pounds, I gained a pound! It's just so unfair, I do often eat well, I love fruit and veggies. Sadly though if I choose to have something that may not be the healthier option I'm looked at by thinner people as a "pig" or something, though those same people probably eat worse then I do but are lucky enough to have good metabolism and don't gain weight just by looking at it like I do! My hubby loves me just the way that I am though :), so who cares what anyone else thinks(lol, yeah, trying HARD to convince myself I don't care).

Yes I'm weak, i control not eating all sorts of oily and fried food, i can also avoid eating fast food like burgers etc.. but when it comes to bakery items i completely bow down. I simply cant resist it. I make it a point to go buy the chocolate cakes or pastries and eat at least 2 of them. But absolutely no regrets for that as I would have enjoyed every moment of it!

Well, I've been beaten by food a number of times already. Chocolates, fast food are my worst enemies while I'm trying to lose weight. It's really hard since it's really good to eat those kinds of food. I just try to be as motivated as I can be and remain focused on my goal to continue and lose weight. I've been big for years and years and I needed to change for me, my health, and my family. Give it another try.

ermm.. i fortunately am one of those who has a to-die-for fast metabolic rate so as you very well know, no matter how many times a day i pig out on humongous amounts of food, i still stay slim (expect for the time when i was pregnant, you saw me get a little heavier than my usual weight, but all of it is gone now :p) so what if you're not sexy (now there's a fine euphemism if i ever saw one :p)? joey loves you still. it's not a matter of being physically attractive that matters in this world, my dear sister. eating is one of the greatest gifts God has given us, and why miss out on the funnest part of being alive by refusing to eat those scrumptious food on the table? remember that local commercial where the mother scolds his son for not eating because there are a lot of people out there who are in a state of severe starvation? there is your valid and humanitarian reason to continue eating. :p
