I know, I know, I haven’t been keeping you posted. That’s because I haven’t been doing as well. I guess it will help me to share my successes and failures, but I just couldn’t get the gumption to write. I am still going to my diet meetings at HMR. What I don’t like about the program is that they appear to push their products all the time as the key to weight loss.  There are a lot of studies out there that suggest meal replacements really are an effective way to lose weight, but I want to do it with real food. I am also not that big of a fan of most of their products.  When I first joined HMR back in 1995, there was a lot less emphasis on their products and more ideas on eating low calorie foods.  I have always liked that approach and sadly have rebelled against HMR at their changes.  I still feel that I get a benefit by attending weekly meetings and making a phone call to my coach. It makes me more accountable as I have to gear up to be weighed once a week. I am exercising more now that the nice weather is more frequent. I just eat way too many snacks, especially at night! I really have to get out of the, “I’ve done a good job today, let me reward myself”, mentality. Why I think adding tons of calories to my diet is a reward I will never know. Well I am off for a walk. I will try to be more diligent in keeping the diet blog updated!
