Excellent posts in this thread. I'm seconding everyone who said do it for yourself!

If you are religious - take advantage of that and pray. (I'm not pushing religion here - it wouldn't work at all for me but it does work for some people).

The awful hard truth is what I learned years ago - 3 words are really the only way to lose weight: They are: Eat less. Exercise.

From what I've read, in the long run (over a year) it doesn't matter whether you do low carb, low fat, high protein, vegan, macrobiotic, prehistoric, blah blah. What matters is that you don't deprive yourself all the time. Eat what you like that is reasonably healthy, with some treats but eat a little less of everything. Get some exercise - if you hate it just go for a short walk. Get moving.

Others have done it - you can too!!! Best of luck to you and please post back and let us know how you are doing.
