Dieting by Beth | May 14, 2010 | Blog | 8 comments really. I started trying to lose weight in January….I’m up 6 pounds. I suck at this. That. Is. All 8 Comments Laura on May 14, 2010 at 2:48 am Normally I lurk 😉 Love the blog. Totally feel your pain. Started Jan as well. Lost nothing ugh Reply Paper Tiger on May 14, 2010 at 5:29 am I eventually decided that the best way I could think of not to gain weight was not to diet. (I may have gained some, but at least I'm not outgrowing my pants every 2 months…) Reply Lynn on May 14, 2010 at 11:28 am Damn, you stole my post … although I wouldn't have had the courage to post that. And I don't know if I've gained 6 pounds, because I haven't had the courage to get on the scale in a month or two. Hugs, dear. At least you're completely adorable, which makes up for what that stupid scale says. Reply Sally on May 15, 2010 at 2:43 am http://sparkpeople.com/ A lot of good tools, articles, encouragement, groups. Making changes to lifestyle, not "dieting". Even if you do nothing but read some of the articles, it might help give you a different way to think about it all? Best wishes to you. Reply diane on May 18, 2010 at 7:39 pm I am so there….. If you figure it out, you can share with the rest of us. Thanks for the reminder that I'm not the only one – I sure feel like the only one who consistently fails at the weight loss thang Reply Knitting In The Stacks on May 19, 2010 at 4:40 pm Weight watchers, Adkin, South Beach, Flat Belly. Over the years I have tried them all. I know where you are coming from. Reply islandknitter on May 20, 2010 at 11:12 pm I watched an interesting Oprah,she had on a lady named Geneen Roth… her books on eating could change how you look at dieting forever…. Women,Food and God is her latest….
