Well ...

I first joined SparkPeople in 2008, quit and rejoined many times and finally gave up. I just could not make myself follow ANY program for more than a couple of weeks, and I tried them all, including not having a program. I have been a dieting failure, life change failure and non-dieting failure. I just haven't been able to convince myself that the pain of denying my hunger is worth the result. Yet, I also have been unable to convince myself that just letting myself go is fine. My dream is to become a normal eater and to find the balance within myself that will cause that to happen. It's not just about the food and exercise but about acceptance, love and healing the emotions underlying the whole process.

Fast forward to July 11, 2019 and I joined WW (formerly Weight Watchers) and have been very successful with it. It feels different this time and I have developed a "no matter what" mentality that seems to be helping.

Married, no children, one dog. Retired. Used to be: personnel director, psychotherapist, legal secretary/assistant and in that order! Considered downwardly mobile by some, but very happy by all.

    Never give up on pursuing your dreams. No matter what potential failure you face, try another way or try going up and over, or around and sometimes getting through, but never give up. Gary Capla
