  Oh yeah, been there, doing that, again! Winter is bad for me, and I'm still trying to learn to cook for one, not an easy task. The original Weight Watchers is good, it's all in staying with a sensible intake once you achieve that ideal weight. I'll just have to learn how to dislike food in general I guess,   :oh_shucks:

Day one done.  I feel good this morning!

 

I love weight watchers.  Its all about portion and eating the correct amount of calories.  I wasn't hungry yesterday, but I sure missed my mountain dew!

 If losing weight was easy, there wouldnt be so many fat people 

If manufacturers were serious about producing healthy food would help.

 

My wife finally got good at losing. She avoids all suger, including grain, starch, etc. She eats meat, cheese, veggies, nuts, and so on. She avoids potatoes, but eats sweet potatoes. You must realize that it took time to put on weight and it will take time to come off. Don't get discouraged.

Is there anyone here who doesn't know by now that suger is highly addictive? They have found that it affects the same part of the brain as cocaine does. Manufacturers are know to put it in food that doesn't even need it just because it keeps you coming back. And you all were wondering why you craved snacks at 8pm.

So you are saying it's not my fault I'm fat? I'm just addicted to sugar?

Seriously I don't buy into that kind of stuff. I think the human mind can be addicted to anything that we enjoy.

My biggest addiction isn't sweets or sugars. I rarely eat cakes cookies or snack foods.

Mine is deep fried, really greasy foods, and fast foods!

Tonight for dinner I had 2 chicken breast grilled and a whole bunch of steamed kale. So good.

For a snack that make you feel like you ate something and you will taste for an hour or so, try hot pickled veggies... cauliflower, pickles, okra, peppers, etc. good flavor but the only down side is they go great with beer and make you drink more

Seriously I don't buy into that kind of stuff. I think the human mind can be addicted to anything that we enjoy.

 

There are two kinds of addiction, physical and psychological. Sugar is physically addicting. It has an actual physical effect on the brain chemistry. However, that doesn't take away human responsibility or free choice. Alchohol is addicting, but that doesn't take away responsibility for being drunk.

I learned in school that matter can not be created nor destroyed, but merely changes form! 

 

So, whenever someone loses weight, I seem to gain it. 

 

I wish other people would stop eating too much of the wrong foods !!!!!

Pickles, especially sour ones like dill/cucumber are what I resort to when the munchies hit. Practically no calories and full of flavour--- you feel like you've had something to eat!

Actually ate 2 whole dill pickles last night.  Very tasty!  10 calories per pickle.

Apparently dieting make me mean.

I have lost 6 lbs so far. It will mellow out in a few weeks and go down to 2 to 4 pounds a week depending on my activity.
