I joined one day ago and like the ease of online journling. Every weight loss attempt I've had in the past was much more successful if I wrote it all down (even the cheats). I'm 51 and fat since age 10 and did WW for the first time at age 12 but have never been down near goal weight since then. I always quit early or got disgusted with the process. I love food (but hate cooking) and have to concede that I have to give up my love and turn that into love of life and freedom (to do those things that fat prevents). I work insane hours (easily 80+/week) which only makes the bad habits harder to manage. I do little except work, sleep and eat and was recently diagnosed with diabetes (no surprise there since have been pre-diabetic for many years as most of us are who are 100+ lbs overweight). I'm also considering lapband surgery (my insurance covers it, no problem there), but I'm still too stubborn to let myself use forced constriction as weight control. If I haven't been able to buckle down and DO IT in 40 years why do I think I will succeed this time?
