I made a big speech about how well I would do... here I am again to report I have failed. Why do I keep setting myself up for failure????

You are not a FAILURE. It took time to put it on and time to take it off.

It took a short time to put the weight on... it seems like an eternity to attempt to get it off. I appreciate the encouragement. I honestly do, it just feels so hopeless when your the only one in your family home wanting to change anything. Makes things 100 times worse....

Small changes can be sustained.

Short term gains are largely water... get back on track for a week or two and that will all come off and then you can get started in earnest again.

Just concentrate on you and let the others in your household take care of themselves unless they are too young to, you are important and deserve the best life has to offer! Good luck!

You are NOT a failure! Please try hard to get those kind of thoughts out of your head. I read your bio and can relate, I'm an emotional and compulsive eater who in the past has turned to food as my comfort and relief. Everyone here sometimes goes off track. The thing to do is just get started again. It's a journey with bumps, difficulties and detours along the way. This site is a wonderful resource to help you in this, everyone here wants to see you succeed so you're not alone in this. Don't give up. Each day is a chance for a fresh start...forget about yesterday, just start fresh again today.

You can do it! You are not a failure. You are human. Just try to pick yourself up and start again. You have a great support group here even if you don't have one at home.

Tiff, I know food can be a powerful stronghold and you have a lot of supporters here on this site. I also know how very difficult it can be to feel that your healthy lifestyle is a solo endeavor esp. in a house full of folks. May I suggest that you start small and make little changes the your family might not even notice. Very young children are adaptable and will eventually come along with the food game plan (i.e., make Oatmeal Choc Chip cookies instead of buying Oreos) Start keeping fruit on-hand like grapes or bananas -- which are very kid-friendly dipped in chocolate and frozen. It seems like your husband may be the holdout and that's okay too. Start off asking him to join you for Meatless Mondays and New Food Fridays -- make those your "wow" healthy recipes. Try something healthier but reminiscent of something he already likes (check out OR OR There's much to be said about a well-stocked fridge and pantry. You've got to plan your meals before you and the family are hungry. Most of all, remember this is your life and your health. You are not a failure but simply falling forward into the right plan that's going to work for you! Put the barriers around your emotions where you need them so you can do this for you. ((hugs))!

Thank you all so much :) It really helps to read these things. I just lack commitment and I don't really know why. I want to get this weight off. I am trying to pre-plan meals as we speak and try to do this. I will let you all know how the end of tomorrow will be. Hopefully a little success will encourage me to do better :) Good luck to all of you too!
