For years after the birth of my son I tried to lose the weight. At 1 point I weighed more than my in pregnancy. I would loose and slowly gain again. Finally I said "no more" and looked to others for help. I talked with a trainer a few times to learn how to exercise correctly, talked with a Nutritionist for tips and figuring out how many calories I needed to work with. Finally I had my husband look at my food logs for support as well as criticism. Sometimes a little help goes a long way.
3 years later I am still 1-2 pounds less than my goal.

This is a lifestyle change. Their is no reason to go at this alone. Surround yourself with a support system. Mentors, teammates, partners, family, friends, whoever you want it be. They will be their for you at your highest and lowest points but will always help you succeed.
You already know you can't do it.... make the effort to prove you can!
I have failed so many times at so may different things because I wanted to prove I couldn't succeed. (smoking was the biggest example) I finally took to proving I can do something. Each week I start a new goal, and work hard at succeeding. I'm slowly realizing I can (or can't) do anything I put my mind to =)
