Well my weight is up this week, but I am sticking more closely to my diet now than I have been and I feel great so I know that the weight loss will follow. I really am concentrating on the health benefits of my diet. My mother had several major heart attacks by the time she was my age and I want to avoid that. And if I am eating a whole foods, low fat, vegetarian diet, I know I will lose weight. My body is just a bit stingy about letting it go at first.
