Will power! How strong Will Power is. How weak I am. This will be a major challenge for me. I have been on many diets in my lifetime. More than I can imagine. Possibly every diet there are out there I have tried. I haven't always been over weight but I have been for the past 14 years. Now I am getting re married and I don't want to look fat in my dress. That is not the reason for me to lose weight but it is a major incentive to start off.

Weight has always been an issue for me. Even when I was thin ( a size 5) I still thought I was fat. Well, now I know I am at a size 14. Ugly Ugly Ugly. My goal is to get down to at least a size 8. I know I can do it but Will Power doesn't want to help me. I feel like I am depriving myself when I know I am not. It is all in the mind. I need to be pushed. I need something. I need to lose weight and really do it this time.

I need Help!

Try the Shangri-La diet. The basic gist of it is that you add a certain amount of flavorless calories to your diet, and your body's natural regulation of hunger is adjusted as a result. It's allowed me to take in a lot less calories than I would normally, without really noticing it, so as a result I need less "Will Power" to take in less food.

weight lifting and Low Carb????
Being an epileptic the best plan for you is keto. Have you cleared all of this with your specialist. Seen you go to ICU so many times.Would be awful if you take a turn for the worse.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
