Like many people I have tried so many different diets and exercise plans in the past with limited success. I tend to find that I stick to them for a few days or weeks but then have a bad day or two and give up and not only put back on the weight I lost but extra as well!
I'm only 19 but I'm 6 foot 3 and weigh 21st 6 so I've reached the point now where I really feel like I need to make serious changes to my lifestyle for all the usual reasons. Problem is, if I try and make drastic changes instantly then I know after a week or two I will fail and I can't really afford to fail again and certainly not put on any more weight! However, I also find that making small changes and only losing small amounts of weight at a time frustrates me because I feel like I could be doing more and a week of no weight loss can make me feel downbeat.
So, enough rambling. What I'm really asking is, what tips (and success stories!) do people have for making changes to your lifestyle to lose weight steadily and most importantly, to stick to it for the long term and not throw the towel in?
