To be brutally honest, I have pretty much given up on myself. after going down to about 270, I have regained pretty much everything I have lost when I weighed the most I have ever been. I've been out of work for about 3 years due to a back injury, and I'm a full time student and have been stressed out with school. When I'm stressed I tend to become angry with myself and at that point I just eat whatever is in sight because I really don't care anymore, at least till after I eat it then I just get mad at myself for being so foolish in the first place emoticon . anyway I really do need some serious help and I look forward to talking to some of you on here in the near future.

Haven't seen you on the "Wednesday Weigh In" thread.
Just wanted to check in and make sure you are ok.
Never give up on you.
I watched this video and I thought "If he can keep trying, I can keep trying"

Hi and thanks for your message. Don't beat yourself up, it doesn't do any good. I suggest you read "The Spark". I got a copy at a used book store. All of the information in the book is on this site as well but in book form it's a little easier to read, not as overwhelming and you can highlight the things you want to come back to.

I followed "the spark" stages. It was a slow beginning because the first week I only made three small changes and didn't even count calories. I was mindful of what I ate and kept a log but that was not my main focus. As the stages went from week to week I then built on my goals, eating, and exercise. Again it was slow but very effective! In the past I tended to have the all or nothing mentality and over and over again it worked for awhile and then I got tired and let it all fall apart. This is different.

I made a list of why I wanted to lose weight... listing every single reason, not just for good health. I wrote down everything that I hate about being fat and some of it was embarrassing. I look at that list daily, it's 2 full pages, it motivates me every day! That is what I focus on, not what the scale says. I focus on what I'm doing to change that list.

Pick yourself up and dust your self off and tell yourself you're not a quitter over and over again if you have to. You can do this! Best Wishes!
