Just to add my 2p worth. 6 months ago I hit 16 stone, and frankly hated myself. I've struggled to control my weight since we had kids nearly 8 years ago. I came across a 12 month course run by a Canadian company called Precision Nutrition (actually I'd come across it a few years earlier but it took me a while to look in to their methods... also the course isn't cheap). Six months in to the course and I'm now just under 14 stone (aiming for about 12 if I can, but really 15% body fat). It's all been about evolution not revolution. Make small changes to your habbits, and not all at once. The first two habits I learned, and they were the most important,
Eat to about 80% full
OK the other side of the course is I work out 3 times a week, but the workouts are simple and I do them at home with very little equipment, and not the gym where if I'm honest I feel insecure. I have a coach who is in frequent contact to keep me going when I'm a little low or unmotivated.
I feel a lot better!
Don't give up YOUR health is worth it.
And I'm editing back to add another thing that has been really important to me losing weight (we're all different). It's better to be consistently slightly better than it is to be perfect and give up after 2 weeks. We all make mistakes, we all have blips, when you have them the important thing is to wipe the slate clean and not say "what the hell I've blown in now!"
