Your weight - Are you happy with it?

I am happy with mine.

Although I love food, I make a special effort to stay at the weight I want to be at, or not much above it. When I put on a few pounds, I switch to yogurt and fruit, until it goes away again.

I'm so happy with my weight, I keep adding more - I wan't to be ecstatic! My doctor, on the other hand, is not happy about it.

I'm fine with it until I take the dogs hiking in the mountains and am huffing and puffing up grades, or I get up in the morning with a back ache and know that I wouldn't have it if I were fifty pounds lighter. Then I make some waffles and forget about it.

Waffles, good forgetting food. I'm not happy with my weight and am working hard to take it off...another 35 lbs and I'll be happy.

Not happy with mine either, but just like PrincessFiona, I'm working on it. I only have 124 pounds to go. That means I only have to lose 12.4 lbs ten times.

The only way I could lose that much weight is to get a divorce!

I could stand to lose 10 lbs. 15 lbs would make me pretty lean and mean.

Thumbs up Love my current weight

I'm at 165 pounds which is fine for a 5'10" male. I've maintained this weight for two years now.

I used to weigh 195 pounds and decided to slowly lose weight by changing what and how I ate plus going for daily walks.

I've never been happy with my weight.......even when others thought I was the perfect size, the scale said something else to me. Could have something to do with at birth I weighed an enormous 10 lbs. 11 oz, so I guess I was doomed from the start. I'm tall and have a large frame, but still !! Much of my problem is I love to cook, and I love my own cooking!!
The only time I lost a lot of weight without any effort was when my husband died, and I sure wouldn't recommend that. Sometimes I wonder how I lived through it. We were married 42 yrs.
I've been on every diet known to man and have lost a ton of weight, and gained it back, over my lifetime. I'm on the bandwagon again and this time I'm doing it sensibly...high protein, no refined carbs, no potatoes, low fat. I love cook elaborate meals, but right now I have to get back to basics, and thankfully my new husband is great about it. I sometimes cook him a meal I'd love to eat. lol
Surprisingly it helps me to be here at DC, reading and posting about my favorite thing...COOKING.
My husband and I will be doing two international cruises this summer......eeek, let's see how I do then !!
