I am glad to find this group. Last fall I lost 15# and felt great. It wasn't terribly hard and I don't remember being hungry. What torpedoed me was that I stopped tracking my food and exercising. Over the winter, I put it all back on. I recently started feeling depressed about the "padding" that I regained. Since I prefer to have energy and not be depressed, I started walking again. The "blues" went right away and I realized that I just need to get back with the healthy eating/exercise program.
The book, YOU on a Diet, has given me great information and I look forward to the CK site to gather even more. I am encouraged by all of the positive comments/help you all share!
