For most of my life I have been overweight and have tried just about every diet that there is unsuccessfully.  Yes I have lost hundreds of pounds over the years on different diets but have gained the weight back that I lost plus more.  This has been very discouraging for me and I've realized that diets do not work because they deprive me of eating foods that I enjoy which made me want to eat those foods even more.  Also in the past I have been an exercising fanatic and was doing an incredible amount of exercise that was impossible to maintain on a daily basis for the rest of my life.  4 years ago I learned to drop the word DIET from my vocabulary and understood that I needed to adopt a permanent healthy lifestyle change.  This involves both eating healthy and exercising on a daily basis without depriving myself of eating foods that I enjoy!!
