Don't be afraid to start over...that has been my motto this time around for losing weight. I lost a lot of weight when I was younger and kept if off for six years. Then, when my husband and I were having fertility issues and treatments, I gained all the weight back. I now know that a lot of my weight issues centered around that disappointment. I could lose 15 pounds easily but then I would lose interest and it would all come right back.
I was scared to get back into the right mindset to lose weight and start exercising. I would say I wanted to lose weight but there was something holding me back: fear, emotions, the security blanket of weight, etc.
When I went to a weight loss surgery workshop, everything clicked for me. I realized that I deserved to give myself one more chance to lose weight on my own. I wasn't sure that I could do it on my own, but I owed it to myself to try. A good friend went with me to the workshop and provided me with support. It sounded too good to be true. Could a surgery solve my weight problem? Maybe. However, with the lapband one must still do a lot of the work. That was my turning point about getting serious for the long haul.
Don't be afraid to start over. No matter what your goal is in life.
