Regardless of what you do, succeed or fail, somebody will never be happy with you just because they are not happy with themselves.
I have had a hard life because the majority of it was spent as a fat person. Just because I was fat, I was made to believe that I was a BAD person.
Between 4 weight losses from 9th grade to now, I have lost over 400 lbs, gaining and losing again!
When I was at the correct size according to a doctor, the people that didn't like me as a fat person, still didn't like me. The emotions of jealousy and envy were evident from those people. It was always something that made them never see me as a GOOD person. I get very uncomfortable when I have jealous or envious people around me.
When I succeed in weight loss, people wish they were me, ask me for advice and then don't take it. I have an amazing capability of losing weight and completing my fitness workouts. When I am in the mode of getting healthy, I am in it for the long haul.
For 25 years, I always felt like a bad person for being fat and also for the loss of my youngest brother in an accident. It wasn't until I received counseling that I realized I was mistreated by so many individuals. I am not a BAD person, I was judged poorly by so many because of physical appearance and an incident out of my control.
There are so many qualities to me and they are worth getting to know. Fat is just one thing that has plagued me because I was taught to eat when you are emotional. I spent so many years with a bad outlook on myself and a lack of support to change that.
Since I have met my husband in November 2009, I have become very physically fit, I have followed my Nutrition plan and lost over 100 lbs! He sees somebody that is not fat, but somebody who is a good person. He wants to help me be healthy and for the world to look beyond the superficial bodily appearance. As I look back at what I have done, I am so proud.

If you think you can't make the journey, you're WRONG! If you think you are not worth it, you are WRONG!
If you think you will give it all you have, you are RIGHT! If you leave excuses behind you are RIGHT! If you failed and will rectify the next day, you are RIGHT!
All the best to you and you CAN do it!!!

What you DO makes all the difference in the end.
With every choice you make, you move toward an ending.
There is guilt for lack of action and there is pride for completing what is necessary.
Sitting around and thinking you should do something only leads to guilt.
Doing something for yourself can allow you to have inner peace and pride that you had an achievement.
Consistently DOING leads to consistently FEELING pride and leads to RESULTS, which eventually can be seen.
Whether seen on the scale or your muscle tone or the fitness capabilities, there is pride to be had!
We must not be discouraged by a lack of, we must be encouraged by our state of health and fitness and what we HAVE done!!!
Remember that results are inevitable if we just KEEP DOING and don't get discouraged. We all CAN DO!!!!
