Commit! That's what you HAVE to do, or else you will fail. That is the brutally honest truth. You have to do this...no one can do it for you. You must make up your mind that this is what you are GOING to do and no one is going to mess it up, distract you, deter you.
I've found that it helps me, since I'm pretty competitive, to compete with someone else who wants to be equally committed....and make the stakes (if you lose) high! If I don't lose the greatest amount of weight, I have to make the drive to see my friend, who lives 12 hours away. If she loses, she must make the drive to come visit me. I've already made the drive twice (with two children).....it's her turn! So, I've committed that she's going to NOT BE
the biggest loser!
You gotta commit....and that's gotta come from you! We'll encourage you the best we can, but you gotta find the strength within yourself to committ....and surrounding yourself with a good support group wouldn't hurt, too (yes, that's what we are too, but we can only be that if you decide to come here.....you need support that is physically around you).
Hope to see you back around here...a lot!
