Everyone is doing the best they can with what they have and where they are.

Remember that the scale isn't the only way to measure weightloss success!

Hi, I joined SP back in 2009...but lost motivation and interest, but GAINED about 25 more pounds since then. So, I am back and hoping to find encouragement, motivation and self confidence to stick with it. I have a lot of weight to lose and it does not help that I have a significant disability...paraplegic for past 22yrs. I am not able to walk or bear any weight, but I know in my heart I am able to cut my calories and do some forms of exercise...I just use a lot of excuses to justify not doing it. But, it seems everybody around me is co dependent and continues to baby me and act like it is not my own fault and give me an easy pass. I am tired of it. I need to be tough on myself and disciplined. I am hoping for some tough love and encouragement from this group. I know it is going to be hard, I will probably want to quit within the week...but help me keep coming back! I will reach out to others too who need encouragement.
