I dont know what to say except that I am not fat but in my head I feel and look fat just because Im not skin n bones anymore and all my adult life Ive been struggling w/ this belly that wont go down. Now its caused my breasts to enlarge and Im not happy. I loved being thin and wearing a size 5/6 12 yrs ago but am in a 13 or 14 jeans now and wear an xxl shirt.. I have done the Adkins Diet several times but failed because I dont want to diet n excercise based on someone else telling me how I should do it so I failed. Now I have high cholesterol ( which Ive had for 3 yrs) and arthritis and bad back. Im only 43 yrs old and weigh 180 lbs. but have trouble sticking with this diet. I only wanna lose 25 to 30 lbs. How can I keep motivated to do this??? Thanksgiving is coming in a couple months and I wanna slim down.lolView Thread
