Weight: 246.7

I have spent many years on many different diets that I could not stick to long enough to keep the weight off for any length of time. 

Today I have decided that it is time for me to actually listen to myself and just eat whatever I want because I will anyway.

I have found it quite easy in the past to take weight off on someone elses diet with foods I don't want to eat.  I have found it easy to count calories or points or fast.  All diets work I have discovered, yet I have never been on a diet that I wanted to live the rest of my life on and that is my issue.   I can follow any diet and lose but I never wanted it to be a lifelong thing and always went back to eating what I WANT and the weight came back.  I have decided that I have to eat what I want but just add daily limits to it.  I find it easy to stop when I reach my daily calories or points etc.  The only problem I really have is the actual foods.  There are foods I will never give up.  I am making up my own diet using the foods I love.  I am keeping my daily calories between 1,200 and 1,500. 

I know all about many diets, I've been on them and I really dislike all of them because of their rules....LOL

This time it is all about MY RULES!  I'm also not requiring myself to sit down to a regular meal, instead I am eating what I want when I am hungry, regardless of the time of day or rather or not the family is eating a meal.  I will still prepare family meals for others but it will not be necessary for me to eat then too.

Took a full array of vitamins this morning to cover anything that my foods miss

Meal #1  was chicken with cheese and pepperoni topping and coffee = 149 calories

Meal # 2 Low Fat Black Cherry Yogurt = 140 calories

Calories used so far = 289

 Meal # 3  Imagine Parmsan cheese stars =350

calories used so far = 639

Meal #4 beef, peppers, olive oil, celery, baked fries = 362

calories used so far = 1001

Dessert = 1/2 serving of mini apple pie = 205

calories for the day = 1,206



Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 121.7 lbs to go!

welcome, i always go by my own rules too, actually!

Donkey on 04/05/2019:
Welcome!!! Great approach! Especially when it comes to maintenance. Portion control and better choices overall are how I lost this weight the first time. (I've lost the same 50 pounds 4 or 5 times in my adult life.)

innerpeace on 04/05/2019:
Welcome and good luck playing by your own rules, that way you will always win!
