It would be nice to hear I am not alone in this. I always need to lose some weight. Usually around 20 lbs. This is not me trying to be vain, this is my doctor telling me that I am at risk of diabetes if I don't lose a little weight. Not because I am obese, but because I have family history and borderline diabetes my whole life, regardless of weight. So, I start a diet, fail. Repeat about 10 times. Finally, somehow, I find my willpower and actually start losing weight by cutting calories and exercising. As I start to see results, I gradually eat less and less and exercise more and more. I end up losing 25 lbs in 4-6 weeks. Around the 6 week mark, I am exausted and hungry and start eating a little more, exercising a little less and gradually gain it all back. Back to square one. Yo-yo dieting is really bad for you and I have gained and lost 25-30 lbs. at least 4 times since I have been an adult. (I am 30 yrs old now.) So do you relate to this? Takes forever to find the willpower, when you do find it you take it too far and push your body too hard, then relax a little and it all comes back? I am in the Need to Go on a Diet phase right now, but unwilling to even try until I can do it right. I KNOW exactly how to do it in a healthy way. But my personality doesn't let me after a certain point.
