I've battled with my weight most of my adult life. Years ago coming to terms with never being "normal" weight again, keeping best I could at a manageable weight (comfort, clothes, aches and pains) seemed about 180 was a pretty standard and steady weight for me.  THEN, I got married! I blinked and suddenly I weighed 211! Happy is fattening too!!!! I'm 56, 5' 3" tall.  With the new added weight, old back, neck and hip injuries resurfaced in a grand manner.  I knew I needed help and I knew 'dieting' alone wasn't going to do the trick.  And for me it is a 'trick'.  I'm not a junk food craver.....or even a sweets craver.....I am a meat and potato LOVER! I can pass up the breads and pasta's, the cakes and candies.....the shakes and fries.  But, I LOVE a plate full of meat, salad, potato and lots n lots of it!!
