    Another whining, self-absorbed post from the forum expert...

    I have gained a lot of weight since living with Tim. Now, I'm still within the weight and BMI "guidelines" for health, but barely. All told, I've gained about 15 pounds. I looked pretty good for an old lady when I started living here. Then I went on Remeron (anti-depressant) and that put a lot of weight on. I feel bad about myself as it is, and I know beauty is on the inside, and that self-confidence and a genuinely caring personality are much more important, but I can't stand being this way. I'm a petite girl, 5'1". It looks bad on me.

    Naturally, almost none of the fat went to my breasts...

    I am really watching what I eat, but to no avail. I was wondering if anyone knew a good diet to jump start my weight loss. I don't want to really low carb.

    Tim says I look fine, but then he said that when I was much lighter. He did say he would not like it if I got unhealthily heavy. I feel I am approaching that.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Why diet? Try exercising more. Besides, it's not all about what you weigh, but how you look. If you knew my weight you'd be surprised, because I look smaller due to muscle.

    if you don't want low carb.....

    a quick way to jump start is slimfast -- really following it to the letter. 2 shakes a day (breakfast & lunch) and balanced dinner (no binging). PLUS exercise. walking is easiest. walk 2-3 miles at a quick pace - it will take about an hour a day. commit and you will lose those lbs. the thing that was my absolute saving grace when i was doing this was air-popped popcorn. you can eat loads of it and it will not sabotage your eating plan.

    once you have made your goal then definitely look into something more realistic for long-term.

    best wishes, nowisee
