They are both obese and need to lose not just the weight but the various problems that accompany it. But DD can't wrap her brain around what she'd eat, and wants her meat, even tho she has cut back so far on her Weight Watchers diet. And DH tries, but he also can't wrap his brain around wanting to eat what he needs to eat. He's trying so hard, but the cheeseburger has flavors that call to him.

I hope you are doing well. I could relate to so much of what you shared here.
I joined here in 2006 - years ago and was doing really well then got off track and regained the weight I'd lost and more - eventually getting up to 433 pounds. I was too ashamed to return here and wallowed around at 433 until joining another plant-based forum where I was unknown.
I started out there in 2010 and began losing weight again, but didn't have a helpful mindset. I was looking forward to eating treats that I really don't handle very well. So, when the first celebration rolled around I ate cake, lots of it and a little of this and that and celebrated through the holidays and before long I'd regained all but 23 pounds of what I'd lost until I regained my senses last summer.
On July 4, 2011, I braved returning to that forum weighing 410 - yikes - but received welcoming support and have now lost 149 of the original 300 pounds, so I'm nearly at the halfway point with the weight loss - at 284. This time, though, I'm seeing the journey differently - as a lifetime health process, not a diet or weight loss process. Weight loss is a wonderful side benefit, though. I decided to check in here at the McDougall forum and was pleased to see how positive it was. I will continue to lurk about here, but haven't really seemed to make connections with my posts, so this may not be the place for me right now....
