I am at a loss on how to get motivated to cut calories, eat healthier and lose weight. I have been overweight my entire life. I have tried all types of diets - Nutri System, Weight Watchers, counting calories - lose 40 or so pounds and then give up. I feel like a big failure! Just once in my life I want to be able to buy clothes off the rack in a "regular" store - not one just for plus-sizes. I tell myself that eating whatever I want has done nothing for me but make me weigh the heaviest I have ever been in my life but can't seem to handle feeling deprived of food. I started eating vegetarian the first of the year. I lost a few pounds but have since gained them back. I compensate for no meat, poultry and fish by eating more bread and sweets. I just plain love the taste of food and love to eat. I came from a strict religious background. We didn't have anything we could do but go out to eat, have dinners and activities centered around food. I don't want to die young. I don't want to develop diabetes. I already have high blood pressure. I have problems walking (bad knees) so it is very difficult to do any type exercise without it being very painful. Does anyone have any advice, ideas, suggestions for me? Thanks for listening.
