OK, I'm a bit overweight... 40 lbs.... I decided a couple months ago that if I don't show any signs of losing weight by the end of September I'm giving up. I've been "dieting" for a few years now and I'm about 10-15 lbs over what I originally started at!! I don't always stick to my diet and I don't always exercise like I want to. It's my own fault and I know it. I do want to lose the weight - I have no clothes that fit!!! So, if I haven't made progress by the end of September, I'm just going to go out and buy clothes that fit!!! I feel like this is a cop-out, but I can't go on being misearble while not losing the weight. Please tell me that by buying clothes that fit I'm not resigning myself to being overweight?!?!??!?!?!?

Hold it. Have you gone to your doctor before you started you diet. Because he/she may be able to help you start a diet that will work.Before I went out to buy those clothes,I would go to see your doctor, try the diet he/she suggests and then after a month or two you still can't lose the weight, then get the clothes.

Actually, I have gained about 15 lbs since my Dr visit last year. I really need to schedule a physical. They usually tell me the same thing - watch what you're eating, blah blah blah... I know I eat too much - I LOVE to eat!!! And sweets (chocoalte) are my downfall. But, when I stick to my diet and exercise, I am good. I just am so uncomfortbable in clothes that are designed for people that weight at LEAST 15 lbs less than what I do.... I'm hoping it's only temporary, I am soooo uncomfortable being this heavy...
