I started in 2007 at 230, and managed to get down to 194 in 2008 or so. A couple of months ago, I found myself back at 210. I've gotten back down to around 205, but I'm finding it hard to resist snacking.
Counting calories on mynetdiary seems to help some, but it's a crutch. The core problem is to get myself used to eating less stuff.
A lot of people hare have managed to lose weight and keep it off. How have you changed your attitude on food? Is it a lifelong battle or did an attitude shift show up and make it easier?
