You know, I felt the same way a few months ago and still feel that way from time to time. For me, I didn't really start to see any huge differences until I had consistently exercised and dieted for about 6 months. That seems like a long time to wait for results, but consistency is the key. It's almost like weight drops off overnight for me. I mean, I'll feel/look the same for a couple months and then one day, I'll feel or look thinner. The scale doesn't lie either. I've just learned that it takes so much patience to reach your goal. I'm still striving for mine and I set my goal for January of 2010 to realistically give myself time to lose 40 pounds. So far, I've lost about 15, so I have 25 to go. It's slow, but I know once I reach my goal, I can maintain my weight much easier. Waiting........is the hardest part! Just hang in there and you'll get there.

It has taken me 11 months but I have lost 40 pounds. I found an inexpensive trainer in my area. He is waiting on me to show up for my appointments that gives my accountability. It has been HARD, but I have burned more then I have consumed. I can say I feel the strongest I have ever felt in my life.

I have lost weight very very slowly over the last two years. Something that has helped me is realizing how much of a challenge it is to lose weight and keep it off. It has helped me to realize that changing food behavior is something that I am learning. Just like it's hard to learn French, or long division, or the reasons for the American Revolution, it's hard to learn about healthy eating--and it's harder because of the evolution that enourages us, deep down, to maximize our coloric intake. When I want to encourage myself, I say: you can learn this. It's hard. Be patient. Anyway, that's what's worked for me.
