Trying To Win The Battle

Hi,

It is an uphill battle with losing weight my whole life. I have done numerous diets with minimal success, the last diet was Weight Watchers. I lost 30 lbs in total but gained it all due to working the evening/night shift. I feel so frustrated and sad, I have no energy and I feel now that I am an emotional eater. I just don't know what to do. I have joined the gym, but I still don't feel motivated. Sometimes I wish I can join those weight loss shows on television. I am still trying to get motivated and I would like to lose 80 lbs and one day run a marathon.

I have never been thin my whole life, and I'm not looking to be, but I would like to be in shape and develop a more athletic build. Thinking of what I can look like invades my thoughts. I am still trying to figure out and motivate myself but I fell I am still losing the battle.

You must become accountable for yourself; set your mind to a goal of losing weight, and it will happen. Anyone will lose weight by reading and following the right information; as such, being healthy is a lifestyle, not a diet! There are many good tips on how to achieve permanent weight loss; none of them includes gimmicks, diets, or diet pills. To assist with weight control; keep a daily food journal and every time the urge to snack is felt, first drink a large glass of clear water. It does not hurt to treat yourself with something special once in a while, what is necessary is that you moderate your food portions. Being overweight ******, but after reading a book, I lost 85 pounds! Words can not express how good I feel! This is a comment which I recently received about the book Lose Weight Using Four Easy Steps
