    Spark can help but the emotional end of things is going to have to come from you. There is a reason that you are carrying around this weight. Maybe you do over eat but most big people I know actually eat less than every skinny person I'm close to. Probably because of the guilt and fat girl rules. Can't be the first one to the buffet. Can't be the last one to leave the table. Blah blah blah. Stupid guilt trips we lay on ourselves because inside we feel like we deserve to be punished for being this way.

I used to blame my body. Tell myself if I'd gotten better genetics than I would be as thin as my sister. Believing that right down to the atoms that made me up that I was inferior. I don't know if that's you but considering your plea for confidence I'm going to guess that it's not very far off.

You don't know me. We've never met. (Hi by the way!) However, you have to believe that a lot of us have been in your shoes, are still in your shoes, and more than any diet or exercise routine, you need to forgive yourself for not being everything you thought you could be. That's the past. You're never going to be in high school again. You're never going to be able to do it over. The only thing you can do is thank your body for getting you this far, learning to love it, appreciate it, nourish it, and insure that 5 or 10 years down the road you don't look back at this moment and wish that you'd made some different choices. Baby step it if you have to.

Pick a bad habit. Eating in the middle of the night. Not getting enough water. Drinking too much soda. If a whole routine isn't working then focus on just one thing and change that. Keep at it for a month. Keep at it until you aren't even hungry after 8 or crave water instead of soda when you are thirsty. Then when you think you have that one down, pick another one. Maybe it's waking up 30 minutes early so you can fit a small workout in before you have to get ready for work. Eventually, you'll have so many good habits going on that your body will have no choice but change because you're changing. We should never love our bodies less than some guys love their cars.
