Razz Hey everyone! Where are all my friends on here?!?!! Are we all taking a break from this heat!?! Just updating because last time I was on, I was down 39lbs. Time to update cause I am now down 45 altogether! I've done this all by myself! Someone in my last post asked how I did it and Sorry I didn't respond, I haven't been on here in a long time. I am being asked this ? alot because it is noticable that I've lost! I basically eat more fruits/veggies/stirfrys. DRINK LOTS OF WATER. Water helps. I drink between 8-10 cups a day. I also exercise like 4-5x a week. Motivation, determination, and willpower are all keys. Please feel free to comment. I miss u guys so much! I am here for all of you, and remember NEVER GIVE UP! ciao! Wink

I agree that motivation, determination and willpower are the key elements in sucessfully maintaining a weight-loss programme. I started my weight-loss plan two weeks ago and have, so far, lost six pounds (out of my target loss of 56 pounds!).

In order to keep my motivation, determination and willpower going, I have found that as soon as I get this overwhelming urge to binge eat at night, I go upstairs and take a long, hard look at my body shape. I deliberately recall all those embarassing moments when a zip burst or I couldn't fit into 'normal' clothes and how I hated and loathed myself at those times. Then I make myself remember how much I BADLY want to lose all this weight.

I make myself think about these things for at least five to ten minutes and then I make myself think of how good it will feel when I can finally walk into a room full of people and not feel self-loathing for my body.

I find that after really thinking hard like this, my batteries are juiced up again and I can even take a certain satisfaction in not giving in to my cravings. Even at this early stage, already I can just about close the last buttons on my shirts. This, for me, is incredibly exciting.

One thing I do know - it takes time to develop a habit (I believe it's something like 21 days to form certain types of habits). I've spent all my adult years developing the habit of binge eating at night time. If I can continue with my positive thinking plan, I honestly believe that it will get easier in a few weeks time. I've never waited that long before to prove my theory, but this time I fully intend to. I hope this helps someone else.

Hey Denisey143

I am new to this just signed up a couple of days ago. It is so hard to lose a couple of pounds. It's awesome that you have lost 45. Girl you are working hard. Be proud. It was so great to read what you wrote it just made me want to do this that much more. Sometimes we think it is impossible, but then when we here messages like that it gives us strength. Thank you, and God Bless You.
