I need to lose this weight once and for all! It's holding me back.
I have gone up and down on the scale for most my adult life. I'm ready to get healthy and stay healthy. I have a 3 year old and I want to live a longer, healtier life for him. I also want to lose weight for me. I have reached my career goal of becoming a lawyer and starting my own firm. Nevertheless, as successful as I am with other goals, I am continuously struggling to lose weight. I startd Jazzercise, LOVE IT! Just need to learn to eat right. I need some support:(

Ahhhh But you have it wrong...
Your weight is not holding you back. It's your struggle to stay on track and you are down because of the way you've allowed yourself to become the weight that you are. Once you realize the source of the weight gain, you can focus on changing that focus on positive energy. You cannot lose weight for your son and for your goals of being "around for him..." I have a four year old and an 8 year old.

I finally realized that the reason for my weight gain was a very emotional life struggle that I needed to face head on. It took all of my mental and physical energy. I had to deal with that and I became tired... Sadly, I now realize I should have stayed more focused on myself / exercise during this trying time.

Why do you want to lose weight? Why do you want to become healthy... What is holding you back from focusing on this? Be honest with yourself. Start to jounal. It won't be easy, but it's rewarding. Every little percentage of loss is a reward.

Don't take away from yourself to lose. Give back. You lose a pound, give yourself a treat!

It sounds selfish to some degree, but you must in order to find peace. I always felt guity leaving the kids in the daycare while I worked out, but I NEED this time. I clear my head, study and read during this time...

PS: I am a psycology major --- if you can't tell already.

PS, I can help further if you would like, but you must do the work! I can't do that part for you.
