I love getting email from Lynn’s Weigh readers. I really do. And I try to answer it as best I can and in a timely manner. But this week I have so much on my plate – out of the ordinary things that are consuming my thoughts – and I wouldn’t be able to answer the following email in a thoughtful way.
So I need your help. Can you, particularly the veteran weight-loss folks, answer this email I received today from Stacey? When I get a chance I’ll refer her to what I’ve written in the past, but I know we each have our individual answer to the questions she poses.
Variety being the spice of life, your answer may be just what Stacey needs to hear to get her on the path of permanent weight loss.
Here’s her email:
“I am looking for advice. How did you stick with it at first? I have a very hard time getting motivated to do it. I know it is pure laziness on my part. I loved WW in the past when I have tried it. When seeing results I get excited and all that but as soon as I fall off the wagon or have a bad day it is all over and I’m back to square one.
I am 36 and at 290. I am so ready for a life change. Any help you can give would be wonderful.”
Leave a comment or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be sure to forward it to Stacey. Thanks a ton, you guys.
A quick update on Mathilda. She’s not doing well. Her back legs just aren’t working. We may need to put her down this week. The only saving grace is that we got that second chance, that extra time to spend with her. And we’ve been savoring every moment.
Thank you again for all your kind comments and well wishes. I know so many of you have been down this road before. It’s never easy.
