    Lots of great thoughts and ideas thanks guys.

    A learned a few things on my last big weight loss, and the most important thing for me is NOT to set any of those I will lose 8 pounds this month type targets, because when it comes to it you can 't MAKE your body give it up to your set timeline. A big huge YES to setting goals, but for me that has to be put into things that I can control, I will eat 100% on plan for 2 weeks, with no cheats, totally in my control, I will exercise x minutes a day, totally in my control and far safer to set than those weight loss goals.

    YMMV, but for me if I'm doing everything I should be and the body won't give it up, then I can't let that derail me.

    I agree - new shoes, weight watchers and zumba three times a week works for me.

    Another thing that makes women different for men (maybe, maybe not) is hormones - anyone else notice that? Isn't it true that it is harder to lose weight the older you get? And then when/if you do lose the weight, your skin takes a good 2-3 years to shrink back if you are over 40 because of less estrogen. Weight loss is hard on women physically and mentally. At least once a week in Zumba before or after class we sit around and compare flab stories.

    I'm all for eating what I want so that's why WW worked for me. Everything started falling off when I started exercising. But I still drink Dr. Pepper, whole milk, eat butter and use heavy whip cream when I cook - and I love ranch dressing. I WILL NOT give up that stuff - so I just make changes to everything else to fit those in. LOL!

    I don't know about you all but if I gave up everything I loved, I would surely fail. It took baby steps and lots of time for me - I wasn't super heavy, but I started WW in/around 2004, managed it ok - got pregnant - had a baby and didn't get back to where I wanted to be until just this year. It might take years and that's ok! But a support group of friends is such a BIG help...either with dieting or exercising - if I didn't have girlfriends to share weight war stories with, I'd never have gotten this far.

    Well that's why I gave other goal ideas :P I found people generally think goals have to be weight related, but they definitely don't :)
