Tuesday, Jan 6 2009 - It seems so Simple
View CATHY247's food & exercise for this day
It seems so simple to lose weight. Eat less calories, exercise more. My husband has preached this to me for years, it is his favorite speech to me as I go on my endless rabbit trails of diets. He is British and we lived in the UK for 5 years. That is where I started going to Slimming World where I was told I could eat everything I wanted of certain food groups. I lost weight but very, very slowly. Than I started WW, I did exceptionally well on it. I lost weight almost every week, loved the meetings. My husband said that is the one for you. Stay on that one. Than I had a hysterectomy, went into surgical menopause, Mom passed away, some other family tragedies, we moved back here to the USA, depression. I began to put the weight on again. I caught myself before it was way too late at a 20 pound weight gain.I started WW again, went for 3 months, and I kept losing and gaining back the same 5 pounds. My husband made no comment. I saw the book Calorie King last week and picked it up on a whim. I found this site and I absolutely love it. It is all so simple, and it makes sense. I would rather know my calories, than have someone tell me what to eat. I have began to lose the weight I put on over the holidays and I feel in control. My husband will be the last one to know that he was right!
