  • I used to be like this, but back in December I realized I needed to start right then and there. And that was it. I've gone over my daily calories twice, but haven't given up. I haven't had any soda since December 27th and I'm drinking all my water. I'm working out regularly and I REALLY don't want to. When my motivation is lacking (every day), I go to pinterest and look at motivational pins. It does the trick for me.
    I definitely needed to read this today. Thank you!!
    Premature death is a sign I should get started? hmmmm...
  • I REALLY needed this! Thanks for writing such an awesome article, Jenn!

    Amazing article! This really gave me the inspriation I needed when I was almost ready to give up. Thought for the day? I AM worth the effort to keep going!
    She just called me out and doesn't even know it. lol... So glad to know these thoughts and actions have been experienced by others.
    Great coping tips! I know I feel grateful that I'm not in this alone.
    Oh my my my... definitely getting back on the horse tomorrow and get this body in the est shape I can without skimping on nutrition.
  • Oh wow! I am guilty of all of these. I'm a tiny person. I'm barely 4"11' and I'm almost 200 pounds. My doctor kept trying me on so many different medications and as a result I gained a lot of weight. I wasn't in control of the weight I gained and needed the medication for that time period so I used that as an excuse to eat more. I felt helpless. I am slowly losing the weight now but when I wasn't serious every single thing in this article I was guilty of. I have also gained a case of sleep apnea in the process. I'm hoping that the sleep apnea will go away once I am back at a healthy weight!
  • Excellent article. And thought provoking. I have a tendency to throw in the towel after a while of being bad but I realize now that It's only over when I say it's over.
  • Best article I ever read! I really needed this to get me back on track!
    I had desire to reduce my weight symmetrically therefore it is better to take the various tips for this purpose so anybody help me which the method is better for me.
  • In #1 it suggests telling a loved one your goals. It's just me, but anytime I tell anyone I'm going to lose weight, it stresses me even more and I start gaining. If its helpful for you, then go ahead and do it, if not its ok to be accountable to only yourself. Best wishes and good luck. :)
  • I like the last comment that say to stop comparing yourself with others. I joined Weight Watchers once and found it very demoralizing because everyone there could eat more than me and they were losing weight and I was not. I am very short and older and my reality is that 1200 calories will help me SLOWLY lose weight and 1400 calories will maintain my current weight. That group setting was very bad for me because my body size is not average, and I already have the exercise thing maxed out. So I have stopped doing group things because it got me into a "It's not fair" mentality which is not helpful.
  • These ring very true! Great article.
