"I have always been overweight. The only time I was not overweight I was when I was 19-21 and I lived in Europe and walked everywhere I had to go and I was on the move all day long. Plus I was poor, so needless to say I was eating a lot of beans and rice and lean meat. As soon as I came back from Europe I fell back into my inactive lifestyle and picked up a problem with binge eating. I'd eat entire pizzas, until my stomach hurt. I'd hide evidence of that.
As I got older my doctor started pestering me about my weight and insisting on doing blood work once a year. I was still gaining weight, but my blood sugar and cholesterol levels were actually very good. But I did develop sleep apnea. Finally at my last appt to discuss my blood work (which was 6 months after he initially asked me to get it) I weighed 367 and thought to myself, oh man, I'm on my way to 400 lbs and I just can't do that. I refuse to do that. I immediately asked the Dr. what I could do with the Health Savings Money I had to help me lose weight. And he prescribed Phentermine to me, after a long discussion of the potential side effects, etc. Since I started I have kept a diary of my food on a couple of fitness tracking websites and I have started an exercise routine, in addition to working out with a trainer once a week."

Just keep at it. Don't get discouraged. If you fall off the wagon, so to speak, don't beat yourself up, just start doing what you know is right. It's normal to have good days and bad days.
