OK Guys and Gals, it's time to get serious about this. I reckon a lot of mylotters have a little weight problem, while others have beaten the bulge. So, how about we share some real information here and help each other out.

At my biggest, I weighed in at 250. I got pregnant with second child and developed gall stones during pregnancy which forced me on a low fat diet. After giving birth I had lost nearly 98 pounds and continued to eat low fat/fat free foods swearing I would never let myself get that big again. After stress in my marriage in the everyday thing we call life, I let weight pile on. I became pregnant with last child and after giving birth, continued to gain weight. I got up to 230. Since then, yo yo diets and fad trends have assisted me in some weight loss but I am still no where near what I want to be. Now I am 33 and weight just doesn't fall off. It takes a lot of work to get just one dang pound off. Having tried South Beach, Atkins, Weight Watchers, and Nutrisystem what it boils down to is your willingness to commit to something. Weight watchers is the healthiest mind set...but one can't lose weight by changing diet alone, you have to exercise too. So day to day I say 'This is it,'. Then I find a weak point, cave in and pig out saying..'tomorrow I will diet.' Argh I am my own worst enemy.....

Yeah that's the greatest problem for most of the people these days. Not just on gaining weight and the appearance issues,it's also unhealthy. I have lost almost 22lbs in the past 6 months. I have lime water+honey in the mornings after I brush my teeth in the mornings. It increases the BMR,it's a catalyst. I have totally avoided rice products and have a lot of cucumber salads. Have totally avoided oil and sweets. Regualar with my physical workouts. It needs some determination,that's it.. Nothing is impossible!!
