No More Feelings Of Deprivation


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

It's taken me YEARS to do what I am finally doing --- changing my lifestyle and not just dieting.

My secrets are: 1, realizing that I am not depriving myself when I eat smaller portions and strive for balanced, healthy meals because the foods I eat are DELICIOUS and 2, constant journaling to vent about the lapses and learn from them. Together, I am loving myself more.

I don't give up things I really want; I just don't have them every day. I'm also learning from my triggers..

    I need to find the motivation to get the weight off. I am 238lbs and I just eat whatever I want. I know I am in denial but I have to do something. How do I find and keep the motivation. HELP, I can't do this alone.
