I recently was walking with friends and discussed how I have always been propelled by the naysayers and have accomplished great things in my life after someone said I couldn't. I soon will be graduating with an advanced college degree and am looking at a doctoral program, yet my weight remains an issue. Why is that? I certainly have had those same naysayers in my life that have scorned me for my weight. Why can't I take that same "put it in my pocket and move forward" philosophy and make great things happen in that area? Is it fear? Maybe. Maybe I am afraid to fail, but there was always that fear involved in other aspects of my life and it didn't stop me. Why with my weight?

I am at a point in with my weight that I am just completely frustrated. I have been working out again, although not like I was last year when I lost 25 lbs., yet I struggle to get pants on. That can really do damage to your mind. I should be afraid to get up and get dressed. THIS should be enough!

    So, if I told you that you couldn't lose weight, that would make you do it?

    Do your best to ignore those naysayers (which I know can be very difficult) because you can get control of this! Look at how far you have come! Good luck and keep pushing on!

    Janine have you had your thyroid checked. I know you are faithful in your workouts and walking and I believe you try to eat healthy.

    Vickie had hers recheck as she has an under active one. She has been excising and watching what she eats and still gaining. She was suppose to have her meds increased last year and the never changed her prescription. Dr said she should see a change with the new meds.
    In my case I get so involved with others that my needs get put on the back burner.
