Coco,
Yes, it is not easy. I don't suggest the surgery. Healthy loss is only 1-2 lbs a week. The surgery makes you starve. So many people get the surgery and look so much older after they lose weight.

The biggest problem is finding your calorie window. Calorie count too high and naturally you gain. Too low and you may gain also. Stick to logging everything you eat. EVERYTHING. Log it before you eat it if you have to.

I am sure some will testify to the benifits of the surgery. I think you can do it without the procedure.

Just my $.02,
Al

I too felt the same way and had a complete physical, when they told me all was well, that was my deciding factor that I had to get moving. I use to enjoy all the activity but then gradually stopped and found it hard to get back on track. I made myself a blank calendar with just the dates of the month, then chose what activity I like best (mine was stationary bile and walking) I only put what I do every day on that calendar and it is posted on the frig. It now feels great everyday to mark that day that I made a healthy choice and completed an activity. My kids now look at it and while they are very active they are encouraging me. The first 3 weeks were very tough, but hang it there, as you get more fit on the inside you feel so much better on the outside. Good luck and keep pushing, it gets easier. :)

Yes, I agree about the physical. Also, do you drink a lot of diet drinks? I read that when your tongue tastes sugar it sends signals to your body to prepare for the sugar load and when it doesn't follow, your body after that happens many times stops processing any sugar you do eat, efficiently. Hope that makes sense...

Also, if you aren't eating enough, maybe your metabolism is off and you need to eat more lean protein and carbs. If you use the nutrition tracker, maybe you can see whether that is the case, or places you are exceeding your fat and calorie daily intake goal...i know i usually eat more than i think i am!!!

Best blessings to you...

Have you had a physical??? Maybe something else is off like your thyroid?

Hello,I just can't seem to start. I start and then I stop and I don't know why I do that. I feel lost and I need some advice on how to keep going. I don't eat a lot but I just keep getting bigger and I don't know what' the problem is. I don't want to feel depressed about it because that's not my nature. I'm usually a very up person, but I feel like i'm lost. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I dont want to get that lapband but I've been considering it. I feel weight loss should be natural. Thanks for helping if you can.
