1. I don't really have that much control over how quickly my body releases weight, but I do have control over how well I engage in the process.
2. I've tried the first way too many times to count and it always leaves me feeling anywhere from a bit frustrated to a like a total failure.
I guess I could add:
3. I am in this for life, so however long it takes to get to my goal is rather irrelevant. This isn't something I'm doing and then I will stop doing when some magic number on the scale appears. So, I am happily learning to relax into this and enjoy the journey. I will get all the way there, I have no doubt anymore.

I'm doing well two out of three meals. Working to get the third one down again as well.
Next weekend, DH and I get to go to a healthy living seminar, and we will see Dr. McDougall. I am looking forward to hearing his message live and in person. I need it, and so does DH. I'm hopeful that this will really be the big push to become and remain compliant. We love this way of living and eating, but for some reason, we keep ourselves stuck in the pleasure trap. Stay tuned...

Curing problems is harder than preventing them! Looking forward to having you back on the McDougall wagon. Oh wait, with all your exercise, you get to pull the wagon.
