|Weight Loss||STILL struggling - I hate what I've become||Sep 14 2009
I agree with what most everyone has said BUT, It sounds to be that you need some professional help to get you over the hurdle. Is your alcohol consumpion excessive?There are support groups to help with that (AA, Alanon). You might want to have a heart to heart with your primary care physician. Tell them whats going on. Maybe an antidepressant along with counciling would help? Sometimes in life we just got to have help and support to make it out of the dark hole.
First step is to take the first step. Sitting around and beating up on yourself is not the answer, nor is sitting around feeling sorry for yourself the answer. TAKE THE FIRST STEP. Get some help and support to map a path to a happier life!!!
|Motivation||What My Grandmother Said To Me||Sep 14 2009
way to go Jaefuma!...while i think what you have done is a MAJOR accomplishment, may i say 2 things to you....
1. like the rest of us, we all need to remember this is a life change, not a diet. Thats why many of us get on the yo-yo diet syndrome.
2. I struggled with weight all my life. I am older now, and have diabetes.
If I had it to do all over again, at some point I would have opted for the surgery.
Diabetes is a horrible disease, and proper weight control and exercise would probably have spared me this....
I applaud your success, please make it a lifelong plan!
