I have struggled with my weight since I was a little boy. I was always the fattest person in the class/neighbourhood/dorm, etc. growing up.
I have tried many diet plans, etc, and of course none of them worked because none of them got me to look at the inside issues that had to be solved - Confidence in my own worthiness as a person regardless of how I looked on the outside.
I had been weaning myself off of alcohol and sweets for a while - hoping that would be enough for me to lose the weight, even if it was slowly happening. I was losing 1 pound or 0.5 pound, but then I would gain a little too.
Finally, last Monday I weighed myself and I had gained 7 pounds in a week! I was up to almost 315, and something just snapped in me. I realized that I had been fooling myself if I thought that I could have a little booze or sweets.
So I finally gave up all my mental resistance to losing weight - all of the excuses about why I wasn't doing it. Since then, I have tracked my food every day, and my activity, and I have not had any difficulty sticking to it. Now, to be fair, it's only been 12 days but somehow, I just know this time is different.
This time, I am 100% sure that I have turned into a healthy person. I am totally sure that I am worth it, because getting healthy is my gift to me. And that is a wonderful thing.
Good luck to everyone, be kind to yourself, but don't be indulgent!
