Losing It

This post has long been overdue.

I struggle with my weight. Yep! I said it, it is out there.

I am an emotionnal eater and looking back so was my grandma and even my Dad.

Did the Weight Watchers thingy 3 or 4 times and even if it gets better with time...I still have nightmares about green pepper cooked with PAM....eww!

I don't like going to meetings and I feel I never got the support I was looking for. The animator was awful; a skinny guy with 70's 3 piece suits whose worst food sin was vegetable soup....Really?

Did the protein shaky shake thing, lost 30 pounds and the weight started pilling back on as soon as I got off...Rats!

I bottomed out last year at Easter in Lake Placid, I had gained most of the weight back on and was freaking out about gaining more.

So Dr. Oz to the rescue! Not one of the un-tested food supplement he peddles everyday...Actually it was one of his guest who talked about this.

It is called Lose It! Available as an App or as a web site  RIGHT HERE  . It is easy to use FREE and believe it or not just inputing all the food I consume daily makes me lose weight!


Here's a pic of today's lunch

Delicious turkey salad with tons of veggies.
My secret ingredient? a touch of dill mustard mised with mayo. YUM!
Off to bet I go.
Be well friends :)

Good for you! I lost 40 pounds last year using an app...tracking all my calories. I had tried so many things before and really it all came down to simple math. It did get easier as I went and I found food that really worked for me. All the best in your journey.

That sounds like something that would really help. I'm trying to move more and eat less but dang it's hard. I'll check out this app!

So many of us struggle with our weight, me included. Keep a positive attitude and eat lots of green veggies and it will happen!
