    I too have become a victim of weight gain. According to our government I am about 10lbs over weight. I have been fighting back with trying to make healthy choices, taking walks, and sometimes I even make a special guest appearance at my local gym. It is hard to shake that last few pounds. I have started to turn down all of the free cakes and free unhealthy lunches that my job offers. I started eating just some fruit for breakfast, a light healthy lunch then a nice home cooking dinner. On the weekends I permit myself to eat whatever I want. Yes it not the best choice, but it kind of works.

    When in Aruba, I eat whatever I want, lol. I read some of your stories above. Please don’t feel down on yourself, be happy with who you are. You are not alone and remember, no one is perfect, even those are society consider to be in perfect shape have issues themselves. They too don’t feel they are perfect. I just try to fight back at times, sometimes I win, sometimes I lose, but I always get up and fight back.

    Remember ladies, “only a dog wants a bone.” So eat, drink, and be happy!

    Wow! Lots of inspiration here.

    Most recently, I had lost almost 70 pounds. I gained back 40. Restarted WW about 8 weeks ago. Weigh-in is Saturday morning. So far, down 12.6.

    I refuse to restart WW ever again. This is it. I have to lose the weight and keep it off, which is the hardest part.

    The good thing is it's a lifestyle, not a diet.

    Good luck to everyone!

    My own personal experience

    walking 2+ miles + watching what I eat = weight loss

    walking 2+ miles + eating whatever I want within reason = staying the same

    walking 2+ miles + going overboard = weight gain + wake up call to get back on the wagon!

    i am very disappointed in myself.
    Don't be disappointed in yourself, you are always such a positive person on this board. It's a battle and you are still on the winning side of it!

    My office lunchtime group starts up again this week for a 12 week Weight Watchers program and it couldn't have come at a better time. I was pretty successful last time, mostly because I am competitive and there were prizes I've been off the wagon lately; football snacks are my downfall. Pinterest is killing me - there are so many tempting recipes! But there are also lots of healthy ones.
    Not sure when, but we will be back
