Ok, ok. I know *no* diet will "work" - it has to be a lifestyle change.
Ok, so does anyone know of a LIFESTYLE CHANGE that actually makes you lose weight and keep it off, and isn't torture and doesn't involve eating 10 bowls of cabbage soup a day, or diet pills or anything weird?
I have done Weight Watchers countless times now. It works to take the weight off - I am able to succeed in that endeavor time and time again. The problem is, the weight creeps back on and it seems like now every January I have to go back on it to re-lose the weight again and I'M TIRED OF DOING WEIGHT WATCHERS. I just am. And clearly once I lose the weight, I don't maintain it. Because I like to eat. That's the problem ya see.
So here it is January, and I have the usual Christmas Blubber I want to lose and I just don't know what to do this time. I really don't have the motivation or desire to do Weight Watchers again...but all the other diets I've looked at require you to eat in a way that I'm sure I won't be able to stick to for the long term.
The *only* thing I can think of is to exercise a lot. But if you know me, you know I *hate* to exercise and I *hate* to sweat.
Quite a dilemma here.
I need some ideas, inspiration and motivation. I even thought of "bribing myself" with a new purse or new rustic furniture for our cabin if I could lose 30 lbs. But I don't even know how to lose 30 pounds other than Weight Watchers.... :-/
If you have any suggestions on how you lost weight and kept it off, I'd be interested to hear what worked for you - please share!!
