My weight has been a roller coaster at best since I was about 25. In the last 5 years I found out I am Diabetic. That kind of made the yo-yo worse. It gave me a much bigger excuse to get depressed and give up.
When I started looking back at my life and the times I was in the best shape, it was times that I had friends that I worked out with. We shared the same goals. More importantly, we helped each other hold ourselves accountable.
I am now on track to be healthier than ever. I am off the insulin shots (was up to 5 a day)and am on a mission to help as many others get there as I can. If I can do it so can you.
The best advice I have is three things. 1. Find as many accountability partners as you can and be assertive. That's right, actually hold each other accountable. 2. Try to simplify things as much as you can. An example would be pre-hard boil enough eggs for you to put two in a zip lock bag for each morning as you head out the door. there are many ideas like this to make life easier. Life happens every day. You can not let it get in the way of your goals. 3. Take minigirl's advice. You have to have goals. you also have to have a plan. A goal without a plan is nothing more than a dream.
