Desperate for some help

Hi, my name is Annie. I have been here so many times. I start and then get weary in the eating healthy and taking care of myself. It seems like an endless battle. I need a Community that will help me to stay with this and not give up. I am 53 years old and the older I get the harder it gets to lose any weight. I lose some but never enough or fast enough to keep me going long enough to make a difference. This time I am asking God to help me and that he will send me people to come along side of me to finally claim victory over this stronghold in my life. I have tried everything. Even Fitnesspal before. Please I need some friends who will have words of wisdom for me. I am desperate.

    Hi Annie. I understand how frustrating it can be to lose weight. The results won't be immediate and i'm learning that ever so slowly. It is a long journey. It is important to get healthy, no matter what age you are. I post motivational quotes daily and would love to help you succeed. Add me if you would like.

    Hello Annie, you can add me as a friend if you'd like. I also need to be kept accountable when I am weak. I have been here often, giving up then returning. I'd like this time to be different so I know for certain I need friends here.

    Hi, Annie! Getting out there to walk can be such a challenge to overcome that mental block.
    You just need to keep telling yourself, "I'm going for a walk!" Instead of, "Should I go? Maybe I'll go."
    You are going to go and feel great when you are done!

    Hi Annie! Are you trying to overly restrict your foods? Remember that this is a long term lifestyle change so you want to make sustainable choices Good luck!

    What is unmanageable to you that you quit? I ask this to help because how can you fix it if you don't know why it is broken?
