I have struggled with weight problems most of my life. I can't seem to stay motivated to keep going. I start off excellent and lose about 10 pounds and then gain half back. Then get strong and lose another 10 and gain half back. I am losing weight consistently over time but is this dangerous? My blood pressure is almost into a normal range now and I really do want to keep going. I have also been able to come off one of my blood pressure meds al together and really look forward to being off the other one eventually. My intention is great, however my track record is not. Is there a way I can re-train myself to have more will power/discipline to keep going. I have tried every diet pill and joining groups and diets out there, I can't seem to stay on track for more than a few months ( At the longest)View Thread
Absolutely! Thank you for this wonderful advice! I would like to copy and paste this onto Facebook if that is ok with you (of course crediting your name) I would love to have all my friends and family know this great news. I have been meaning to get involved with a local charity and am doing that as soon as I sign off my computer. Thank you for the nudge!View Thread
