I know this is a very personal issue with most people and for some extremely private. I'm sort of like the last one. But this past 6 months I've put on about
20# and I couldn't afford it at all! My Effexor needed to be increased and that might have some link to an increased appetite but I'm not sure. One other medication changed too. But I've fought my weight as long as I can remember what the scales were for. I need to change some habits...some bad habits and find it nearly impossible to do! After so many years the thought of failure isn't very appealing any more.
Do those of us who struggle know how to lose weight? Sure we do...we are the experts! We've probably together lost as much weight going up and down the scales as the moon weighs!! It's changing the bad habits for life, not dieting...IMHO. I know why and where my downfalls are. I work on it so hard for a few days, or even a few hours and then feel helpless and give up.
I know losing weight won't solve any of my pain issues but extra weight can surely make it worse. Even if that wasn't the case, feeling better over all and especially about
the way we look can have a positive effect on our entire outlook on life.
Does anyone else have this kind of problem? Does anyone want to band together and see if we can be moral support for each other? Maybe we could have a time to meet in a chat room for support? Maybe once a week? If anyone is interested just post here and we'll chat about
Hoping I can one day succeed,
