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!

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.
