Motherof5: Hello! When I see a phrase such as "there's no way I will ever make it," I am reminded of how I often feel about lots of things. I wish you would come and post on the "Positives Only Daily Affirmation Thread" some of us have recently come up with and on any of 3FC's great support threads where you can be cheered up and cheered on in your weight loss journey!
OF COURSE YOU CAN LOSE 30 POUNDS!! Oops, sorry, shouting!
Truly, I have no idea if you can lose that amount in three months but it sounds pretty doable to me. If you consistently apply whatever eating program you are on (no starving, please), talk to your doctor or nutritionist to be sure you're on the health track, have a cheat day every now and then, take a daily walk (make the kids go with you, that'll keep you moving!), post daily on 3FC (it's a very friendly site), keep a positive attitude (hard, I know), drink lots of water and NEVER GIVE UP, you should be at least in shouting distance of your August goal.
I think life is not a dream but a reality we have to deal with each day we are alive and life at an uncomfortable weight is no fun (I know from personal experience). So I wish you the best and know you can succeed if you believe that you can.
