Default Help! Here I am again, so disappointed :(

Oh my goodness. I don't know where to start. I am so discouraged and disappointed. But, I figure what have I got to lose by posting here again. I posted awhile ago and have been struggling---daily---ever since. You might remember me---the last thing I posted was a trainer had freaked me out by saying what she did---very strict---and that she should weigh and measure me---TOTALLY FREAKS ME OUT!! I did try just counting calories and writing everything down for awhile and my daughter said I started to look thinner. But I still felt I didn't know what I was doing.

I have several health issues---prediabetic, high cholesterol and triglycerides and I just recently had to start med for high blood pressure. I want to be healthy. I am so lost. I have always been very athletic and fit. Until I had to take a medication that packed on the weight (and I am still taking a little of it). I just feel very discouraged. I try every day, but I do not know what to try anymore. I can't seem to figure out a path and follow it. I have tried lots of stuff---WW, counting calories, was going to try L.A. Weight Loss, but that totally freaked me out. I HATE seeing my weight---it is just traumatic to me, so I asked my husband to weigh me, but not tell me, just to have some measure of where I am. Now I am totally freaked out that I have gained even more, but I don't want to know. Last time I weighed, I was 239.5---a few months ago. And that really upset me then. I am 5'9 1/2 inches tall, and need to get down to maybe 160---even that seems high.

Thank you so much, if you have read this. I NEED to get started and keep going with something consistent and start seeing results. I just feel so bad about me right now. I know I need to take better care of myself, but the stresses of life make it so hard. Thanks for listening. It helped to just write it down. Anyone been here and been able to be successful??
