I'm glad that worked for you. I had a relative who ate like a trooper all her life, and never gained an ounce.
But I'm around 200 pounds, diabetic, and on increasing diabetic medications. I have to make lifestyle changes or I'm going to end up losing my feet or my eyesight eventually. It's not a question of dieting per se. I know what happens to diabetics. I've seen my mother. She'll live forever, but she's disabled because she didn't make changes.
It's very frustrating to me that even though I know all that, and even though I don't want to put my family through that, I still can't seem to muster the self control to do what I need to do.
It's important for me to identify the problem areas, so that I can find other ways to deal with them instead of eating.
