What helped me was listening to Fat 2 Fit which I found as a free download on itunes. It is 2 guys one helping the other on his weight loss journey. I would listen to them while on the computer or while working out on my exercise bike. I would find while in the grocery store their advice in the back of my mind keeping me from buying the wrong things. Last year i lost 22 lbs and have kept off the weight. I am starting to do more exercise again after an injury a few weeks ago and hope to lose 60 lbs to reach my weight goal. Slow but steady - by the way I am 60 years old - I found out the weight loss had gotten my past high blood pressure normal and I am looking forward to easing the wear on my joints with the weight being lost.
If you think the fat looks bad on the outside imagine what it looks like and is doing to your insides!

Hi Draygona! I would recommend that you try to get very clear about your reasons to lose weight. What is your motivation and what are your goals? Use this to inspire you. Work on a inspiration board (like a poster with pictures, words, quotes) or a scrapbook to inspire you. And try to get 50+ or 100 sparkpoints every day. ;) Doing that will get you on here focusing and learning and getting motivated. Best of luck!
You are worth having a healthy body!
This is a lifestyle change to be healthy, not a diet and not a sprint to get there.. one day at a time, one pound at a time.. as long as it takes, starting again as often as possible.

Hi, I am a 45 year old grandmother of 4. I love to read, cross stitch, make jewlery, dragons, garden and hike. I also love my dog (Goober) and my husband very much. I am a solitary Wiccan. I am quiet and shy until I get to know you, so none of my friends would say that I am quiet or shy in any way. I have weighed 242 for about 6 years now and I'm ready to get rid of it. I always quit after a couple of days with many different excuses, I could really use help sticking to my plan.
