Welcome. It's okay, you're with others who want to get healthy, too. I have to lose over 100. You gotta love yourself, take some stress out of the equation, and make a plan. FOCUS on the plan, take baby steps to meet your goals. By focusing on the plan, you're not focusing on yourself and wallowing in the big picture.
I watched Ruby last night. She changed up 5 things to break her plateau and it worked for her to get her motivated to her next goal, which is to get under 300 lbs. She lost 10 in a week!
The changes I remember:
1. She juiced (didn't care for her juicer cause it separated the fiber, which you NEED! but oh well, it's a totally new concept to her and it's gotten her to eat more veggies),
2. She put strategically placed mirrors on the walls around the house to remind her to stay focused on her goal. Seeing her body has lost a lot of weight helps, but seeing it needs to lose more also helps. (Ever watched yourself eat in a mirror? Sometimes I eat so fast I don't even remember having conversation -- what does THAT look like?
) Chew chew chew your food til it's slurry (it aids digestion and helps you not to overeat cause you'll get full faster).
3. She got rid of an old settee and traded it for a smaller chair - positive change~!
4. She changed up her exercise routine cause the body gets used to a certain level. This time she roller skated and ran up a set of stadium stairs.
and can't remember the other one.
Every little effort helps.
