About eleven months ago I resolved to lose a pound a month for two years which would be 104 pounds off of my then 307pounds. To date I am weighing 314 pounds and was all the way up to 319 pounds. Obviously there is an issue here and I would like to be able to keep my mobility and get back to a weight where I am not morbidly obese. My latest device which I have been successful at, is to fast from 8:00 pm until breakfast. I do allow myself water and have found that water does indeed appease the appetite. Also, by cutting off my food day, my food is more compressed so that I can analyze what I am eating better. I do have difficulty making myself exercise and need to create an exercise habit. I am good at coming up with excuses as to why I don't exercise. Being in this position is teaching me a lot about my character. I sneak in all kinds of foods that I shouldn't allow and just who is it that I am cheating? I am happy that I have been successful in finding a cut off in my day for food intake. I have very far to go and know that with God's help I will succeed. It is just hard to remain patient with myself since I have been so unsuccessful with this weight issue for so long. I must love myself right where I am!
