Hi all! I too am BACK AGAIN -- 4th time in 6 years. You'd think I'd know better by now to stick with the maintenance, but NNNOOOOOO of course not
but hopefully this time I will stick with it. The most I've lost was 36 pounds which was great and now, unfortunately this time, I need to lose alot more than that since I gained all back that I lost PLUS PLUS PLUS...lol....to the tune of starting 4 days ago at 202
Like you I don't like looking at what I've grown to be and being 5'3" weighing 202 at 56 years old is not pretty at all. I too HATE taking pictures looking like this and I am not happy that I had to drag out all my "big clothes" either!
I also quit smoking this year on February 22nd so I wanted to get a good grip on that before beginning a diet again but boy did I pack in the snacks when I quit and I swore I wouldn't do that but it kinda snuck up on me
I really like this diet and I am always successful so I am really looking forward to doing this again!
