Forever heavy, forever between sizes, I have always struggled to come to terms with being "morbidly obese" vs. facing and, successfully winning, the "battle of the bulge."
I've tried Atkins, Weight Watchers, South Beach, Neris and India's Idiot-Proof Diet and the Six Week Program. They all worked . . . for a while. I was unable to stay with any of them without self-sabotage...and if you're readiing this, you know what happens next: the weight comes back on, quickly, plus a little bit more in case you decide to try that again some day!
I've no idea if this one will work. I hope so. I have a good friend who has just lost 50 lbs in 111 days who's my age and has a similar lifestyle. I believe it's possible. Yet I've said that before.
Wish me luck, won't you? I'll certainly need it. Luck, perseverance, gritted determination, etc. If you'll join me, post your results here, too!
