    My favorite weight loss is the one that stays off for good!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I just stop eating when I feel full. Don't gorge and you don"t have to eat everything on your plate.

    I loved this thread. It has motivated me to start my own eating plan to lose weight. I've always known what to do but I love to eat, especially junk food. I figure with all the junk food/beer I cut out each month I will save about $80.00. I can use that money for fabric, yarn, and a new computer. I wrote out a draft of my plan this morning with a shopping list. I'm going to type that up, print it and have it handy. It feels good to have a plan and get control. My DD will be thrilled and so will my Dr.

    very cool! I use a stationary recumbent in my home while I read or watch TV. I picked one up through Amazon for about $160, 2 years ago.
    I have chosen to be happy because it is good for my health - Voltaire

    Thank you everybody for all your suggestions/ideas!

    I have tried a lot of different weight loss plans. I know up front that if I have to count calories or points, I will do great at first then eventually stop doing it. I have bought smaller plates - I think they are called luncheon plates. DH and I have discussed it and have decided not to have seconds and no eating after supper.

    I have noticed the Library has the South Beach Diet, I have placed my name on the waiting list for it. Will read it through for ideas.

    That's a good idea about restricting/doing away with sugar. Have started buying higher quality bread - no more white stuff.

    One thing I really need to do is start some type of walking program. Now that it's cooler outside I should be able to.

    Would love a recumbent bike! Those look like they would be easy on the old knees.

    That's a good suggestion about not eating when not hungry or it's okay to leave food on the plate. I have never made my kids eat everything, except when they wanted seconds they had to finish what was on their plate and that meant eating their vegetables. But I have a hard time since that was how I was raised.

    I also need to concentrate on drinking more water. I feel better when I do.

    Okay, so for right now concentrate on:
    1. No junk food
    2. No going back for seconds
    3. Use smaller plates
    4. If I can't pronounce it - don't eat it. (lots of food these days have really weird ingredients)
    5. Stop eating when full.
    6. Drink water or unsweetened tea in place of diet drinks.
    7. Start moving.

    I am a lifetime Weight Watcher member (1986)....but am not at goal presently, but working on it again! Summer at the lake and chips, beer, brats, and marshmallows in the cupboard are hard on me! LOL I also do My Fitness Pal. I have done Aitkins and it worked great, then I added back fruits and carbs....it was a lnon-liveable plan for my life.

    Weight Watchers is basic common sense eating, nothing you can't have.....but you learn to make wise decisions after you blow all your daily points on something! It is almost a game to see how much you can eat and stay on program, and it can be a lot of food. Love WW, and it works well for me. (give me a month, it'll prove itself again!)
    Our lives are like quilts....bits and pieces....joys and sorrows....stitched together with love.

    I quit eating dairy products and dropped 30 lbs. Before I had tried to lose weight and couldn't. I don't eat meat either though or much bread.

    NO white food - potatoes - bread - rice - white flour/sugar. After a few days you will not be hungry and you will have so much energy. I eat so many vegies and protein now along with some fruit. Even WW limits fruit or used to. Excercise burns calories. Atkins web site is FREE and has so many tips and recipes. You can do it for 2 weeks and see how you like it - it is a good boost. I love bread and found a few different very low carb breads and pocket type breads that work. Read labels = you want to eat all you can eat and have many choices so you stick to a new plan. Good luck! Lots of interesting ideas on this thread. I have enjoyed reading them.
