I understand you dilemma. It is a slow process, but then, it did not take a short amount of time to get where we are. It was a process of many years and bad decisions with food and how we chose or not chose to stay active. Give yourself time. It WILL happen and along the way you will learn many valuable lessons.
ACCOUNTABILITY: is the answer to the problem.
Lap band a quick fix will fail if proper education, planning and support for the future do not exist: ex. Carnie Wilson, a friend of mine who ended up gaining it back plus more.
Fad diets work but for how long! Can you really survive on them the rest of your life and what cost!
The best diet I read is the one that fits into your life style.
Read all you can. Be accountable to you. Track intake honestly.
Build up to exercise. Start off slowly and work up.
Develop habits that keep hands busy and free from food.
Make your goals reasonable and attainable. Do not set yourself up to fail. Reward yourself along the way with some of your favorite things.
By the end of the journey you will have developed a lifetime of eating habits that keep you thin.
I hope to see you here often. Welcome!!!!
I think it was Einstein who said, " if you continue doing things the way you always have, then you will continue to get the same results."
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
