I have been on MFP for years with success on and off at losing weight. My desire is to lose 15 lbs or 4 inches overall.
I know that it’s 80% diet and 20% exercise. This has been true for me. I am not a novice at weight loss as i’ve been battling my weight since adolescence.
I am 43 now, 170 lbs, 5’6, and having a really hard time controlling my calorie intake.
I’m demoralized over the idea that something as wonderful as food is actually hurting me like an enemy.
It seems unfair that a few calories over - in the form of an extra spoon of rice or a handful of almonds - will sabotage my goals. That day then seems “wasted.”
Please review my diary and give me encouragement. Being fat is a source of shame for me. I have even been dreaming about how fat i am. This is probably because of how demoralized i feel. I dont want 100-150 calories - the size if an apple!!! - to stand in my way of losing this unwanted bulk.
