Time For a Change

Who says you have to wait for New Year's to make a resolution?

I am the type of person that can look at food and gain weight. Well, I looked at a lot of food over the holidays. I got onthe scale yesterday and I weighed more than I have ever weighed before in my life. I was mortified! I felt like a blimp in a skin suit. My husband and I weigh aboout the same and he is a foot taller than me. It makes me so sad.

I have decided that I need to take action. Not only do I want to feel better, but I know that it will greatly help my chances of conceiving. It's just so hard to do by myself. My husband tries to help, but he doesn't feel the need to watch what he eats so there is always junk food in the house. He also doesn't try and discourage me when I want to go off my food path.

I am an adult and I should be able to control myself and what I eat, but I seriously do not have the will power. It doesn't help that I am in love with food. I was on NutriSystem for about 6 months, and for the first few months I was losing about 2 lbs per week and then about 1 per weel but I guess I plateaued after about 4 months because I couldn't lose anymore.  I had only lost about 20 lbs. I felt great just losing that little bit, but as soon as I stopped Nutrisystem I gained it all back plus a little more.

I just really need to try my hardest to eat better and exercise. Does anyone have any suggestions on how someone with no will power can lose weight? I need all the help I can get.
