I just read a story about a woman who talked about finding the ability to lose all the weight she lost. She said one thing that really struck me....she found the belief that she could do it. I think that's what I lack....I don't believe I can do this....I don't believe that it will ever happen. I don't know what to do to turn that around. I am too comfortable (despite all of my medical problems and limitations)where I am and I can't see the change actually happening. What is holding me back? Where is the block that is keeping me from succeeding? I will be thinking on these things, trying to find the answers...answers that will free me to lose the weight and be who I really am.

    I relate to you on every level. I have been on this roller coaster too much. I make goals and fall short. I guess wanting is the best attitude. We can get this done. You in? emoticon

    Yes, I can see where "wanting it" would be key to believing you can do it. I will try to figure that out...thank you

    thank you Merrybh for your support!

    Oh I so identify with your feelings. Allowing ourselves to believe that we can change how we ourselves and how we 'see' food and exercise is the best gift we can give ourselves. I try every day to see that it is in the 'little steps' I take toward wellness that helps me change. Most important, I am trying very hard not to beat myself up when I 'slip up'. Having busy lives, it's easy for me to 'fall off', then I go through the guilt trip about not being 'worthy' of the journey. So .. all I can say is I'm learning to celebrate the successes and move on through the 'slips'. Wishing you positive affirmations and hoping you will find those things that bring you joy .. and begin to do them consistently. Blessings ...

    I'm not sure this is the answer you are looking for but you have to really want it as well as believe it. Try to visualize how you would look and how much better you would feel. You will have so much more energy and such a better outlook on EVERYTHING! You have to WANT to be that person and then you will believe you can do it. Come on.... jump on this wagon with the rest of us.... nobody says its easy but in the long run it will be so worth it! emoticon
