As someone who can relate (last year I told everyone who would listen, "I've tried EVERYTHING and I just can't lose weight!") but who has lost 62 pounds so far, I HIGHLY recommend you get yourself a copy of Gary Taube's Why We Get Fat.

January 2015: This is the year I'll hit my goal. I've gotten close but this will be the year I see that magic number on the scale. No shame, no self-loathing; only love for this one body I've got.
My name is Kelly and I'm a 43 year old wife and mother of two girls aged 17 and 5. I've fough weight issues my entire life, even when I didn't have obvious weight issues I saw myself as overweight. I'm looking to learn healthier eating habits that I can share with the entire family so that we can get healthy together.
