Three weeks ago I went in to see my psychiatrist and he told me that I needed to lose weight and explained he felt that weight loss would balance my hormones out. He thinks that it will help my thyroid, bipolar and ADD and make my life more manageable. He didn't tell me anything I didn't know! Leaving his office, I had no intentions to following his instructions. I have never felt in control enough to really diet and keep it off. I have went on a few diets in the past, I usually lose weight. When I was 16 I weighed about 240 and lost over 60 pounds, I gained 20 of it back. I was having issues getting pregnant two years ago and went on the b-12 lip shots and went to a Medical Solutions weight loss clinc and ended up losing over 20 pounds. Bang, got pregnant after trying for two years! Of course, over my pregnancy I gained most of that 20 pounds back. I have also had initial success with Alli. I just can't keep it off and I know a lot of people have this same issue! Anyway, something in me snapped over two weeks ago and I realized I AM going to lose weight. I started with writing down my meals and using a low-calorie method. Now I am trying to learn more about Carbs and their importance in losing weight. Next, I will try to incorporate a Low-Carb eating plan to my Low-Calorie eating plan. And see what happens then!

    Congratulations on your decision to start a healthy lifestyle. It's true, losing weight is easy, keeping it off is hard.

    The main reason I can't keep the weight off is because I go back to my bad eating and no exercise habits once I have reached my weight goal.

    I am determined this time to stay with a maintenance/exercise program, once I reach my weight loss goal.
