  • Yesterday was my 62nd birthday. My husband kept insisting I eat birthday food..I stood my ground. He is not a cook so…if there was a cake..I would bake it! I happily stayed on my keto diet! I lost 45 pounds almost 2 years ago. Now I want to take off the last 15. Happily! I quit letting others sabotage my efforts! Best thing I did to take off the 45!

  • Valuable video 👍 While I am under a doctor’s care, I love 💕 “keep going.” Different circumstances and a different decade 😁 Appreciate your encouragement 🙏🏻

    • Would this impair your posture and cause back problems? They used to sell that kinda thing on t.v. Really don’t know.

  • Weight loss is harder than wgt. gain.

    Women have a harder time losing wgt.

    The game is often played in the mind.

    It is a struggle and mood / emotions can be an added struggle.

    The transition period is real, but so is climbing over a mountain.

    Think of your health and not your looks. Looks come naturally.

    You may not need to lose wgt., but you need to eat healthy for health reasons.

    Food sensitivities and being slim is not different than being fat and dieting.

    Education can be a big help. Learning to identify bad “FOOD” (so-call food) will amaze you that the crap is being sold legally? If it looks too good to be true; it usually is.

    The middle of a grocery store with all the pretty packages is the danger zone and can be assumed as poison.

    The original food pyramid was the original big lie. They want your money and they are willing to hurt you for it.

    “Wild Caught Salmon” are not wild at all. They are farmed and fed pellets with bad things in them. They are then released to be caught in order to legally label the package as “Wild Caught.”

    Once you learn what these man-made “FOODS” can do to harm you develop a mental hate for them.

    READ the labels. Moreover; read the ingredients. Long paragraphs with hard to read words usually mean BAD.

    Ingredients of the same packaged food, but of a different flavor could have bad ingredients. Read each label.

    What was a good product with good ingredients can suddenly change. Keep reading labels of the routine purchases you have worked to seek out. Products may change with no or little notice. You may suddenly see a small dot or star with the words “New Taste.” Often meaning the ingredients were changed from good to bad. The Pandemic caused a lot of this.

    As for money: Watch is the weight. If the prices remain the same in this economy – the wgt. was lowered.

    Sometimes expensive does mean quality but not always. Sometimes high end foods cost more but you tend to ear less if it satiates.

    Certain foods make; even if healthy (avocados) may not agree with your body. This could be a food sensitivity.

    Some foods may work with you for a while while others never work even if it’s good food. You may learn to eat healthy and then find a certain healthy food is bad of a certain medical problem.

    You may find your damned if you do, and you’re damned if you don’t. The point is that it is consent work and should be.

  • I am having anxiety about Thanksgiving! I have food pushers in my family. We are having a big party of 40 people so the food is going to be overwhelmingly abundant! I also feel like not going but I have children who look forward to the holidays. The biggest pushers are my two sisters, who are not overweight! They say they support me but then try to tempt me. I don’t understand why they are so insistent. 🥺😳

  • I’ve started saying “junk calories”. I don’t think “junk food” is fair to food. Chips, french fries, candy bars are not food. Plenty of calories, but should they be put in the same category as eggs, broccoli, and chicken?

  • Thank you for the motivation Dr Becky! unfortunately, I ended up sabotaging my diet plan for the last few weeks and had been making attempts to resume my efforts. The first week after my shameful sabotage went great with a loss of 8 pounds but the second week, the scaled showed I regained 2.5 lbs back when I was still consuming up to 120 oz water per day and practically starving myself with as little as 800 calories per day after a 16:8 hour fasting period. So once again, I got frustrated, cried and gave up. I am determined to try again although we are two weeks away from TG holiday. I believe part of my personal issue is when I get close to goal, I was finding it harder to stick to a plan and just got sick of dieting. I need to do this again
