I really haven't tried to lose theweight until a few years ago. I have tried slimfast(didn't work), weight watchers, good stepping stone (couldn't afford it), and now SP(the best so far.)

Poll question March 19

How many diets would you estimate you've been on throughout your lifetime?

It seems like I have been dieting most of my life. I probably started about 16 when my sister said I was fat and so I worked to go from 118 or so to 110. I tried all kinds of diet pills, over the counter and many of those were in secret. Other than going to WW in 1999 I haven't done any other so called professional helps.

Poll question Mar 12

If you have lost weight and kept it off for at least 6 months, what was the most important factor in maintaining your weight loss?

I lost almost 40 lbs with WW and kept it off by going to meetings weekly. I started gaining it back about 5 years ago and got past my lifetime membership weight. I discovered Sparks and with a buddy lost 13 lbs. I haven't been able though to keep only about 1/2 that off.

My kids have never had to worry about their weight so far. They are so young, but I have noticed them wanting to eat more fruits. My 6 year old is trying more veggies. They are very active.

Poll question Feb 27

Do you own a scale? And how often do you weigh and how does it make you feel?

Yes, I won a scale. I bought a good one almost 40 years ago and still have it. I weigh most days because it is too easy for me to gain weight and I do better keeping weight off if I don't let it get a head of me. I have had to learn that my weight fluctuates a lot and to look at the weeks average not the daily.

Does eating "badly? for a day or meal make you feel guilty?

I didn't have anyone who wanted me to lose when I was younger. I was always a little hefty but I was fit so it really didn't matter too much. I weighted 110 in High School being only 4' 11". I know I am a short and squatty girl. My Goal weight is 130 now. I don't want to be stick thin. I like to have curves. ;)

Poll question Feb. 13.

As a child/teen, did anyone in your family ever pressure you to lose weight?

Yes, my oldest sister, even though I know now I didn't need to lose, but I know seeing her over weight made me more aware of not gaining and over eating.

Were you overweight as a child or teenager?

No, I used to think I was but I know now I wasn't. My highest in HS was about 122 and I am 5'5". I would love to be back to that weight but know it will never be. Goal at my age is now 140.

This or That: Low-carb or Low-calorie?

Jan 17 poll question

Women: As a child, did you ever hear your mother make comments about her own weight or body shape?

Yes, all the time. I can remember my mom drinking Tab and chewing Aids. I remember babysitting so I could buy a box of Aids and at that time I didn't need to lose. My mom was probably always on the chunky stage and her own mom would even criticize her.

Pretty much agree with Tanya EXCEPT that when my weight is as high as it is right now, I can't do as much for the Kingdom as I would like to (like in volunteering, etc.) which makes me unhappy. I've been thin all my life up until my emergency hyst in 89 then my life changed forever... it's been rough.

Sad to say I've tried everything short of Sandblasting it off.
Although, when I was using the B12 with Lipotropics (3 amino acids) injections when I worked for a doctor in Savannah, GA that was the best I ever felt and I had gotten to only 4 pounds of my goal weight left. I had good eating habits at the time, but then moves and job losses all got the best of me and here I am. So I'm starting all over now... oh joy LOL.

The only other weight loss program I did was slim fast. It made me too hungry so I stopped drinking it.

Jan. 5 Poll question

Have you ever tried a crash diet to lose weight quickly?

When I was a lot younger I did it all the time. I wanted the weight off fast and that seemed like the easiest way. Also back then I was about 118 lbs and wanting to get to 115. Alot different with what I weigh now. Now I just don't seem to have the energy to crash diet and feel it isn't the best way when you have a lot to lose.

New year and time to start looking at the questions from the Dieting and Weight Loss. I will try and post new ones twice a week.

Jan. 1, ok it isn't Jan 1 but pretend it is.

Which occasion would most motivate you to lose weight?

Probably seeing family that I haven't seen in a long time. Also looking better in my shorts.
