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.

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!
