    I think it may be because you're coming across as making excuses for why you can't lose weight.
    I think you're simply getting in your own way. .

    You only lose the battle when you give up.

    Don't give up! Good to see you're open to learning to weigh and log your food. You can do it!

    Just to chime in one the Walmart scale thing: I bought the one for $15 (they went up a bit in price from there and the cheaper ones looked, well, cheap, or they weren't digital...) and I had to return it. The grams function didn't work. So, you are probably better off that you didn't get one there. An anecdote at best, but still...

    OP, make sure you get a scale on amazon, or from wherever, and get your tracking in order. It will change your life for sure, and hopefully you can have a bit of success.

    Good luck! And don't give up!

    Got my scale today now I have to go back and read about how I am supposed to use it. It has oz. grams, and lbs just have to put it to use.
