    I'm afraid to diet, but I need to lose weight... do you have suggestions?

    Hello,

    I'm overweight and I'd like to be back to a healthier weight again. Also, I used to be more active, do sports (jogging, dancing, cycling), but I'm so out of motivation, I'm a couch potato, now. I just don't find the motivation to get up and go.

    Sometimes I go for a jog and I can do 40 minutes without problems (slowly!), but it's weeks between these bursts. I've tried tabatha, but afterwards, doubted it was good for me.

    I have back problems, and they are part of my sedentarism. I had a herniated disc an had surgery for it. It sorted it out. I went back to dancing (I used to be a serious dancer and have a dancing room home). Then I got a second herniated disc. My neurosurgeon told me he doesn't wanna do surgery on this one, that it's risky and less effective than the other one I've had.

    I still tried to dance, but it's really painful. I was in a lot of pain for like 2 years. Now, I only have flare ups. I have pain almost all the time, but perfectly bearable, unless it's flare up. Those really, really hurt, to the point of making me cry of pain just to lay down.

    Diet wise, I'm afraid if I diet, I'll just put the weight back on when I stop dieting. Because I've read about and have seen programs on TV explaining the yoyo process. So, I wonder: should I diet?

    I've been trying to eat less. But I relapse. I love food. Mainly chocolates and cheese. But I can stop having chocolates. I've done it before.

    I don't have that much to lose. But I know that I should take action now, instead of waiting till the problem becomes worse. Technically, if I'd get my BMI to 24, I'd be already ecstatic. If I get it to 23, wow!!!!

    My health is suffering: I've got limit cholesterol. It's not high, but almost. My blood sugar was a tid bit to the high. I've had the worst blood test results of my life. I have to do something about it. Also, my thighs and butt are so huge, it's difficult to find pants that fit. They get all paper thin between my thighs. Underwear is a torture, because it's like they're in the wrong place, if you know what I mean...

    How can I make dieting healthy? How can I make sure I won't yo-yo when I get to my goal?

    I know I have to do something.

    Please, if you can help me, give me an idea of what I should do, I'm very grateful.

    I suck at cooking.

    I work full time, but when I'm home, I don't move much.


    Thank you for any help at all. Just being here already makes me feel like I've taken a big step forward and I'd like to thank you all for being there and for reading.

    I wish you all strength to do what you want, to get the healthier weight you want and a lot more motivation and success than myself.

    Hi diviajar,

    That was a great post and I can relate to a lot of the things you say there. Sometimes you can know exactly what you need to do and it feels like a barrier between thinking and do-ing.

    There are a whole host of diet plans available out there and a lot of subforums on this website with communities who follow them. It might be worth leafing through to give you an idea if it might work for you.

    Everyone is different and although I could recommend some diets that have worked for me, there is no guarantee you would get the same results or find it as easy.

    Best of luck and stay strong x

    Thank you so much for replying!

    You're right, of course: we have to find it out for ourselves.

    I've been reading a lot about diets and exercising and everything in between.

    I'm starting a diary now, because I think I'm ready.

    Thank you again! I've just posted it on diaries.

    You have no idea how your replies came in the best possible moment. It filled me with energy and I'm so, so very grateful.

    All the best to you!
    I'm here often on my phone, so, please forgive me my typos. Also, I don't speak English, therefore so many mistakes. I'm really sorry.
