I have been struggling with my weight for a while now, long enough to know what works for me and what does not. But I mess up after a day or two, sometimes I will go for three of four weeks, see results, love the results. But here I am again. Is anyone els out there like me? I know we all mess up, but I don't know. I guess I am looking for the magic words. I'm starting to feel hopeless. :?:

"This IS doable."
"Believe in yourself."

Most of us have probably felt the same as you. You just have to finally decide once and for all that you, your life and your health are worth doing something about it. It's not easy, I know, but no one can do it for you. Start today, now, make some changes and do it for YOU :cheer: :hug:

Hi Sarah... That's my problem... Last year I did a diet (800 calories per day) and without exercise I lost 30 pounds in 3 months but 6 months later I gained back 45!!!! So... I start again one month ago... eating 1200 calories per day, walking 1 hour per day and I lost 20 pounds already!... the amazing thing is i don't feel hungry anymore and with the exercise I have a lot of energy now.
Don't jump off the wagon just take your time to lose weight, the transformation in not gonna happen tomorrow.
Good Luck

The weight loss journey is not quick and easy. It's challenging and bumpy and full of highs & lows. But it is totally doable. Just look at some of the success photos posted here as proof!

Always remember that one slip up does not mean you've failed. We're imperfect beings and we're going to make mistakes. Just pick yourself up, shake off the dust, and jump back into the plan.

Also, if you're finding it really difficult to stay on track with your exercise and diet plan, you might want to track down the reasons why. Every one's body is different, and different things work for different people. If you're feeling deprived, frustrated, overwhelmed, confused, etc. maybe you need a different diet. In the same way, everyone likes a different style of exercise. If you're not loving your exercise plan, try something different. Ideally, you should be excited about working out, not dreading it and thinking of it as something that you just have to endure.

It's not hopeless! You CAN do this!
