good luck! stick with it and you’ll be fine =]. Nothing too drastic, it sounds like that may have backfired on you (as is the case with many of us if we are too strict on ourselves)

I feel your pain girl.  I feel like I always have to be on a diet, but I HEART food!  I am currently doing Weight Watchers, but on my own.  I started weight wathcers 7 yrs ago, and have on & off counted my points (I just counted by pts before i logged on tonight!).  I have lost 40 lbs. when I first joined yrs ago, it took less than a 1yr and I’m maintaining my weight now @ 119. 

I feel that Weight Watchers is the only thing that works.  I have tried other diets, such as South Beach and to be honest it works fast, but you gain the weight back and even more.  I think when you hold back on certain foods (carbs, chocolate, etc) you crave it more and become MEAN! =p

I agree that WW is the only thing that works. And part of what works is that it isn’t a crash diet–they advise members to lose 2 lbs/week max after the first few weeks of joining.

Try to focus on the good things too–like how you made a great step forward in joining WW and doing something good for yourself and your health.

I am also really enjoying reading The Beck Diet Solution. It’s recently helped me break a weight loss plateau. I have had weight issues on and off for much of my life, and I’m finding the book extremely helpful in ridding myself of some of my negative and discouraging behaviors and thoughts and developing better behaviors and thoughts in their place.

The important thing is that your doing great things to move yourself forward towards your goal. And 5 years from now it won’t matter how long it took you to lose it–you’ll just be glad you did it!

One rule of thumb I’ve always kept since I lost a little weight was to ONLY eat when I am truly hungry.  Not out of boredom, anxiety, or just because something sounds really good.  In order to eat, I must feel actual hunger, but don’t wait too long until you’re starved and overeat.

i can’t really help with my magical secret (maybe). i was doing the same thing, gained about 10 pounds right after the wedding. and then i got pregnant, so now i’m allowed to gain more weight! it’s only a temporary solution (not that i got pregnant so i’m allowed to get fat) but i’m glad i don’t have to worry about it for a few more months at least.

Good Luck, I’m so afraid of this.  My Fiance said how skinny I look and how he wanted me to stay like that.  I said good luck with that unless you want me to be at the gym all the time.  I am going to try and maintain a goal but not sure if it’s going to be my wedding goal.
