Why Not?

  Payoffs For Being Overweight:   1. Cravings are at the top of all binges. 2. A need to go with the flow of the crowd. 3. Not doing as I should; but what they do. 4. Giving in to pier pressure. 5. Loneliness. 6. Boredom. 7. Too lazy to give a hoot. 8.  Don't be a couch potato! 9.  Do anything; just keep moving. 10. Phone a friend or member of the family. 11. Find a easy exercise and enjoy it. 12. Visit someone who needs a friend. 13. Take up a hobby,sports,or sewing. 14. Drag out the ironing board and iron.

first step to reach someone

 Hello there! I live in Sweden and I watch Dr Phil show very often but we cannot see them as new.  I mean the same week they send the program in US  is not when they send it here. I wonder when I can see the maerican tv show here in Europe. Anyway my payoff is that men are not so interested as they would be if I lost 30 pounds. I have difficulty to say no and to put up borders. I would like to lose weight and have bought all the books by Dr Phil about the topic but I postpone  to change my eating habits because I have moved inte a relationship with a man that eats even worse than I do. It seems as I have to be soooo strong and determined to be able to change anything. Well I write  this to see if anyone out there will answere. Love and support to all of you who struggle with overweight.

 I found out if you are logged on for more than 20 minutes with no activity you will be dropped off. So if you are logged on, and just reading others posts, or take awhile to compose a post, you could be dropped off. It's annoying, it's happened to me a couple of times. The staff says it is so that someone else can't come along and post in your name, if you've stepped away from the computer I guess, or if you're on a network.

SWEET'N LOW?

  

  

  

  

  

Hi Everybody, I went grocery shopping yesterday and bought a box of SWEET'N LOW and 

later that same evening I was reading an Article by Kay Sheppard called "Making  

Appropriate Choices." Kay said that if your sweeteners have Dextrose in it; "Don't use 

it.  What am I suppose to do? I have the choice to trash it; which I've already came 

to that conclusion. 'TRASH IT' Don't you think that is a good choice? If I was to deside to 

use it , who knows maybe I would be open for a Relapse...I wish I could ask Dr.Phil on this one. Love, Ruth Marie

I switched to Splenda for several reasons. Aspartame (which is the sweetener in Sweet'n'Low) has been controversial ever since it came out. Aside from the health question, it has a shelf life and can't take heat. (Ever had a diet soda that is past it's "prime" date, or been sitting out in the sun? YUCK!) Splenda is made from sugar, but does not affect your body like sugar, and can be cooked with too. It's taste beats aspartame hands down too. Coke and Pepsi both have soft drinks out made with it, and many other products are being made with it too. I saw canned peaches sweetened with it the last time I shopped. So, I would look at your stash of Sweet'n'Low this way: I'm not wasting it by throwing it away, I can only waste it if I eat it. But that's just me...

 This isn't one of those boards where people log on everyday just to chat. Most people get on with a question, or to answer a question. I come on every other day or so. Some posts may get an answer a week later, or more. It can be frustrating, but for some who can't log on very often, it's nice not to have to go way back through the pages to find their post and everything after it.
