I was reading a great article here this morning on the 10% solution, great article I recommend you read it if you are still struggling with how can I loose this much weight
any way the article is about loosing 10% of your weight and it's more manageable, then when you reach that goal you and can maintain, go to the next 10% if you in fact need to loose more weight....hope that makes sense..
I thought what a wonderful Idea, wonder how much 10 % is for me, then it hit me, I don't need to loose 10% of my weight, hey girl you don't need to loose any more weight, it perplexes me that after all this time I still have weight loss in my brain....I saw a commercial and wondered how the food taste on that plan, I saw the new weight watchers points plus thing on hungry you see what I'm getting at...I'm still focused on my weight and loosing it when I know I'm at a great weight...of course I might drop a few more pounds when is enough enough...
My thoughts are I have spent at least 45 years of my life worried about my weight, really sad, it brings tears to my eyes that I spent so much time and energy on weight loss and just gained and lost, and even reached 347 pounds.....WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.....I know I'm not the only one, there are millions like me out there...but what has made us this way.....and now I hear and see very young girls and some boys at age 8 worried about there there an answer, is there a cause...what can we do about it.....where do we begin.....
so now you know why I'm so perplexed today...
I have to get a move on but let me know what you think can be do we move forward, and find place where we can be content if not happy.....about our weight

Have a healthy day

    BRAVO Although I didn't loose weight as you did, I concentrated on 5% each month and HEALTH! It came off faster than my goal so my motivation was always extremely HIGH. emoticon blog. debby

    After losing 75 lbs I kept seeing the same person, I know the weight was gone but I couldn't see it, my clothes were getting smaller, but I still couldn't see it.

    So that must have been how easy it was to put back a lot of this weight, even though I knew the scale was going back up.

    The mind really is a perplexing thing Kitt.

    Great blog, really got me thinking, emoticon emoticon

    I have spent the same 46 years losing and gaining 50 pounds.
    Even at my lowest adult weight I thought I was fat, I was never happy with my weight or my body so I guess 'till I find the secret to that, I will never end the battle.

    Maybe the 10% plan would work for me. I seem to be at a place where I'm having trouble finding my footing to go on. I still have 97 pounds to go, down 70. It's been a tough year and I only lost 14 pounds. But that's better than a gain.
    emoticon for giving me some food for thought.

    You ARE the Spark!!!! You can carry the torch to everyone you meet who needs to lose weight. Maybe you can get involved or BEGIN a healthy living class in your neighbourhood? You can be the leader and the teacher and you can spread all you have gone through and all you know to those who need you. What do you think?

    You have spent 45 years worring about weight, that doesn't change overnight. Start reading about maintaining your new weight and forget about all articles on loss otherwise you will staying your mind set right where it is at this moment.

    You might not "trust yourself" yet to keeping the weight off but your have changed your actions on a daily basis and have establishing a very positive food/exercise pattern.

    Thank you for continuing to share your journey. For me it's very important, because it reminds me that the work never ends. Hearing about your daily struggles with food over the Holidays, and then just getting through it fine was a big wake up call for me.

    I've spent the same 46 years postponing life because of overweight. I'll never forget as an 8 year old asking my Mom if I was fat. Little girls and boys were beginning to tease me, but when I look back at pictures I wonder why. It crushed me when my Mom told me I was chubby, and I saw myself that way forever. It's so sad. I was 150 lbs in highschool, and my parents never let me forget I was "fat". Now that is my goal weight. Do you get the picture here? You get what you focus on. I saw myself as fat until I became FAT.

    I've wasted so much time. Not because I was fat - I've lived and loved despite it. But it's still sad how much of my self-esteem I let be eroded because of it.

    Thank you for being so earnest and generous with your journey, and I hope you can begin to see yourself as TRIM & FIT, and never let go.

    think if we had the answer along with the solutions we would be healthy rich people..

    one thought for me is fast foods and a fast life pace..
    if this planet could just slow down take time for themselves everyday then we would have a chance

    but we always have to be somewhere do something or just go go go..hence we grab food eat mindless and no time for exercise..

    you have learned
    thanks hugs Jo

    That's because you got yourself into the losing weight mentality. How long were you in that mode??? YEARS! Right?? So now expect it to take awhile for your mind to realize that you need to be in maintain mode! It may take YEARS! But you're doing it!

    I have always wondered how it would be. I didn't worry till I was so far gone I never thought I could loose anything. Still have a long way to go.
    I think it must become a part of the soul to push on to the higher weight lost.
    I am been seriously doing this for 5- six yrs and it has been slow. I wish for it to be quicker but I set myself backwards trying to do things MY way. Which the dr. reminded me was not always the right way.
