Profile: For those who have reached or are near their goal weight but are struggling to maintain it. We realize that losing the weight is only half the battle....maintaining it is another battle in itself.

Members profiles:
39 yr old mother of 4 daughters, working part-time I've read Eat to Live and Eat for Health, The Starch Solution, The Virgin Diet, Almost Vegetarian, In Defense of Food, and others. I went through the PT Point of No Return and Emotional Eating. On a journey of learning to cook mostly dairy & wheat-free, and nutritarian. I used to think I ate well--lots of veggies, lean meats, and low-fat dairy. Followed (loosely) the South Beach Diet for nearly 8 years with some success but lately the weight was creeping back on. ETL has turned that around and given me tools (mentally & literally) to bring back my health and youth. Hardest thing for me is finding foods my kids will eat too so I'm not making 2 meals every night. My husband has high cholesterol and is overweight--his frustrations and failure to stick to not snacking often lead me to snack right along with him. I'm a night-eater. Hardest habit to kick:nuts and chocolate--they're my gate-way drusg. I can't just have a bite. For exercise I use a stationary bike we have at home for intervals, run once or twice a week with a friend, and use some resistance bands and free weights for strength training (at home). Someday I'd love to be able to get to a gym but we live in the country and the time factor between work and kids is just too much of a barrier at this point. Challenge: to not stress about the length of time or intensity of the exercise, but be happy with even just a 20 minute work out so I can maintain a daily routine.

I am pretty much a straightforward type of person and I only have myself to blame for my current weight. I have been overindulgent I have been making unhealthy food/drink choices and have gained in the past few years. I want to reverse this trend now in my 30's .
