I have struggled so long with my weight, over 10 years now. At first I just wanted to lose 5 pounds, I wanted to be 127. I’ve gained so much weight since then. I have grown a little since then - a bit over an inch. I now want to be about 137-140. I weigh around 180 right now. How did that even happen? I honestly get what I need to do… eat less, move more. On paper its so simple, in practice I just don’t get it. There is no question that I have been eating too much, but when I start cutting out the extra snacking -nothing happens. To lose even a pound I feel like I’m barely eating anything (seriously, to start loosing any weight I have to cut my calories to 1000 or less) which is not sustainable or healthy. My mom always tells me that I focus too much on food, and that it is my undoing. But lately, I have made a conscience effort to not obsess over food, I just eat some of what I want, when I want it. No change. I’ve been trying so hard for so long, I feel like I have tried everything.
What do I need to do to finally get the results I’m looking for?
