Default Trying again (multi-posted)

Hi all!

I signed up to be a member of this site eons ago (or at least it feels that long), so I doubt any of you will remember me. I'm Kim and I have been overweight since I was 10 years old. I am currently the heaviest I have ever been which depresses me beyond belief. I have a little boy named Austin. He's two and a half. I really want to lose weight not only for myself but for him. I want to be able to play with him. And I don't want him to be ashamed of his mom when it's time for him to start school. My only problem is I have a self defeated attitude. I have tried so many diet plans in the past and haven't stuck to any of them, that whether I want to believe this or not I end up telling myself, "why start anything? you'll never stick to it anyway!" I have really good intentions, but just no follow through. I feel like a kid in a grown-up's costume. I have NO self-discipline.

Do you think there's any hope for me?

If you've read this far, thanks for listening!!

There is always hope!! Just take it a day at a time. When you look at how far you want to go it will seem daunting but if you take it a day at a time or 10 lbs at a time it's much more achieveable. My HW was 254 so I know where you're coming from. Best of luck to you!

Kim -- Six months ago (or seven now) I said the EXACT SAME THING. I don't know if I will be here six months from now, or six years from now, but I am doing everything in my power to prioritize this new lifestyle. So, there better be hope for people like us who say that!
