I'd like to lose 10 lbs. I'm working on it, a little at a time. I've quit smoking and started taking insulin...two things that usually put on weight...but I've also quit drinking and have to watch my diet, so I'm not doing too badly.

I'm not happy. And there's no way I can cut back on food since I like it too much.

The sad part is I know how little exercise I could do and still lose weight. I'm just very lazy.

Is there a woman on the planet who is happy with her weight? We can be perfect and still not happy...too skinny, too fat, too much here, not enough there. I have to laugh at what Shelley Winters said, "I'm not overweight, I'm just 9 inches too short."

I'm about 5 pounds over my target weight. Whenever my clothes feel tight around the waist and hips, I have to get strict on myself. I'm not too happy about it because I'm eating less than what I used to, and yet I feel the weight creeping up. (And this is already with my normal 6-7 hours of sports a week!) I think the culprit is my slowing metabolism

My doctor just increased my synthroid by 50% so I'm hoping that will help me to lose a few pounds. I only have 10% of my thyroid since I had surgery early on to remove the rest. It does seem I have a bit more energy than before so I hope that will help me to exercise, but I find exercise so boooooring!

I guess I am one of the few women that is actually happy with their weight no matter what it is because I choose to not let it get to me anymore - whatever it is, I just deal with it!

I was holding at a fairly ideal weight until my latest health battles and between not being able to move much and fluid retention. Also other people were providing meals or I was making quick items that were not necessarily part of my usual lifestyle choices. I was horrified when I got on the scale and saw I had gained 60 pounds! Well I have lost the fluid (almost 20 pounds worth!) and am eating better so I am sure I can get it back to where I want to be in good time.

I like DC member cara's viewpoint via her signature:

"~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

...good one, cara

I like looking good in size 36, as much as I like cooking and eating. What a clash of interests! I wish I was one of those folks who never gain weight, no matter what they eat.
