'You can't lose weight. You've never stuck with anything in your whole life.' Those words haunt me all the time-every time I slip and eat something I know I shouldn't. I hate it when people think I'm too weak to succeed in my diet. I hate it even more when I prove them right. Still, being ashamed of failing at my diet is often good for me. If I am ashamed enough, then it helps me stick with it the next time.

My name is LaRaine I'm 53years old and I'm from Kansas. I would have to say that most all the women in my family are or were heavy. I was always told to clean my plate even if I was full. I do not know if heredity is one of the causes of my weight problems or not but who am I kidding I was FAT cause I couldn't stop eating. After I was married, we decided I would stay at home and raise the family. I weighed 180 pounds then and by the time I had our third child I weighed 280. I hardly ever went out I would nibble on something all the time I could have eaten all day and emptied the fridge if I hadn’t held myself back some. Therefore, I started getting even larger the situation was catastrophic!!

*****UPDATE DUE TO FACTORS NOT OF MY CONTROL I HAD LAP BAND ON DECEMBER 7, 2012****

********************************

Everyone is always so positive and it seemed to me that whatever problem I've had someone else has, had it too and we could work out strategies for dealing with it together. Weighing in every week has been essential for me. I posted my weight every week, whether or not I've managed a loss. It has been great to be congratulated when I achieved one of my target goals and to be commiserated with when I hadn't done as well as I'd hoped.


Above all, challenge yourself. You may well surprise yourself at what strengths you have, what you can accomplish.

Happy Thursday! The difference between ‘try’ and ‘triumph’ is just a little umph! I hope you are keeping your eyes set on your goal and working towards it. The groundwork of all happiness is health, When you’re healthy, you’re happy. When losing weight, improving your health should always be your first goal, because good health will see you through to the end. Weight loss through diet and exercise is tough, it does get hard, but when you exert every ounce of will power and self control, you will persevere.

Well it is the end of another week. Enjoy the weekend and relax a bit! I know that this time of year people have some spouts of seasonal depression, and it makes us want to eat things that make us happy, most of those foods are not healthy. Stay on track with your goal and know we are not alone in this, many struggle with depression eating. And with Holidays it is hard to turn away from all the good foods being prepared as tradition. But with will power and faith we can do it. Think small portions, And if you must have the sweet taste that is full of unhealthy calories, taste is the key word. Keep strong, keep on pressing to your goal! emoticon emoticon emoticon
