"Thanks everyone! I know for sure the alcohol has packed on the pounds. I was skinny until I started drinking every night. On top of those empty calories I would binge after getting drunk. Shame on me. Tonights my second night sober, and I'm…"

Cindy commented on Vanessa Carte's blog post Will Power
"I am a drinker, too. When I first started losing I cut out alcohol all together and got rid of a good chunk of the weight. I think it really slowed down the weight loss as soon as I added alcohol back. It's great that you've lost some…"

"Be sure to eat a well balanced meals. Willpower is easier to muster up when your not hungry. Trust me, hunger will eventually win. If you stop drinking you will see success on the scale. It is hard to believe it, but you can pack on the pounds even…"

"You will definitely get through this Vanessa! You are determined and that goes a long way!! When I find myself reaching for treats I try to remember how good it feels to fit comfortably in my jeans and often that's all it takes for me to say no."

Will Power

Will power is something I really lack. It's so hard to fight myself. I have recently admitted to having a drinking problem. So on top of needing to lose 64 pounds, I have to quit drinking. Only God can help me through this. I feel so determined though. I was only needing to lose 50 pounds, but the holiday's put my weight back up a bit. I know I can do this though. I know what it's like to lose 30 pounds and how great it feels when people start to notice. I have to feel a little good about…See More

"=) Thanks you two!  I'm glad to hear that I am not the only one dealing with the discouragement of others. You would think that doctors would be more supportive of making better life choices."

Found out

I went to the doctor today and found out that back in February of this year I weighed 230lbs. I guess it must have bothered me enough that I put it out of my mind. Because I thought my starting weight was 220. Well, since then I have lost 18 lbs. It's not a lot and it certainly was a long time since then. But 9 of that was in the last month. That means I lost 9 without even trying that hard. I'm proud of it. However small a success it is. It is just embarrassing that my starting weight was…See More

Weight loss clinic

Posted on June 22, 2012 at 9:11pm 2 Comments

I went to the weight loss clinic today. Last time I was only able to go for a month but in that month I lost 15pounds. I have proven to myself that I can't do this alone. I need professional help. So here we go. I'm looking forward to the results. I know it is going to be a long hard road, but I've got to stick with it. I am considered morbidly obese. That is a hard pill to swallow considering how healthy I once was. I need to find something to comfort me besides food. I have to try and…

Failure

Posted on April 6, 2012 at 11:43pm 7 Comments

I feel like a big fat failure. I've tried so many times to lose weight and can never stick to a proper diet or exercise program. So here i am at the fattest I have ever been...even larger than I was a year ago today. I don't know how to stop the snow ball effect. I need to lose 85 pounds to be at a healthy weight for my height. I feel like I will never get there and that there is no amount of determination that can make it happen for me. I know what I have to do to lose the weight, i just…
