In Response to Re: Breakfast?:
In Response to Re: Breakfast? : The hard part is maintaining the loss. It is so easy to give in. I found after losing weight and then gaining it back that if you let it slide a little it is like an avalanche and the slide continues. One day of treating yourself is fine but you have to get back on track right away and not beat yourself up and figure "all is lost" and give up. It took me the 18 months to lose 120 pounds and like I have said for the most part I have been able to keep it off. I also realized during my "weight loss journey" that you have to want to lose weight for YOU not for a wedding, a vacation, a reunion or anything else. Yes you might be able to take some weight off for a while but unless you make it a true lifestyle change you will fall back into old habits. So if you ever need any encougagement let me know.

Nikki, Thank you for your offer and I may have to take you up on that. I will let you know. You really lost a lot of
weight in 18 months. That is awesome!! I want to lose weight for health reasons. I want to be around for my grand-
children and go places with our motorhome. There is 1 lady in TOPS that has been there over 50 yrs. She lost her
weight when she was young and now she walks with a walker and her mind is going, but she keeps on coming.
When you have to weigh in every Wed. morning, it keeps you on your toes. I think I would slip back if I didn't have
to go every week. Thanks again for your offer. It means a lot to me!
