Here I am again with the same 5-10 lbs... i lose and start to feel great and then eat like a horse for 3 days and gain it back. What oh what is wrong with me... ever since I quit smoking 2 years ago, its the same old story... Need strong suggestions. Does this old 65 body need to maintain at 172 or what??? Is this my set point, forever to be a big size and look like a linebacker in my clothes...

It's a common problem, and all I can suggest is a slow "coaching" process: retraining the brain basically. Think of it as the same way as learning any other new skill - starting small, stumbling along the way, but continue to look for ways to improve all the time. Progress, even very slowly, is the key.

No, you're not bound to be stuck at your weight for ever! On the main dieting board a 72-year old wrote to say she is losing weight (she's lost a lot so far already), so it is perfectly possible.
