I know the feeling of wondering why you bother...I have that thought often...especially being someone who has been overweight her whole life...there are times I am less "morbidly obese" than others but always way too heavy. It's hard to think one is ever going to make real, sustained progress. But there are answers to why bother: YOU, your health, how you feel on the inside and out and the one that always gets me the most: being healthier so I can live longer for the people who love me. There are good days and bad days but as long as we never give up, we're winning. You can do it!
