This is the very subject matter that a friend and I were discussing yesterday for three hours in my living room! :chuckle Then, my youngest daughter called this morning, and we were discussing weight loss differences between men and women. Soooooooo sickening that men can just stop eating chocolate chip cookies, beer, sodas for a week, and be looking good the next week! :chuckle Us women.... well, we have to do more than just cut down the calories, cut out the excess fat, we have to become exercise-aholics, and pray for the weight not to stop going down six months later! :chuckle
I could lose weight so much faster when I was a "spring chicken".
Now that I am a "mature woman", my body seems to be saying "Look woman, you've starved me for years, now I'm holding onto every bit of this fat just in case you plan on doing something that stupid again!"
Dieting no longer works... I just "maintain"! :chuckle
Has anyone been following the Oprah Show each week where these women are on a weight loss program with author: Bob Greene? Bob Greene wrote the book titled "Get With The Program". He sounds like he really knows what he is talking about, so I plan to buy his book and check out his program for myself and my youngest daughter. You know the word DIET has the word "DIE" in it - which makes me wonder if dieting isn't taking us all to a slooooooooowww nutritional death? :chuckle
