Q. Hello ! my name is Jay .. i am 35 years old and i am extremely over weight and i am very aware to it's hazards and risks and i am trying to loos weight and stay on my diet .. the problem is , and this is a tough one , i can not stick with it .. doesn't matter which diet i try , i get to a point where i just find my self fighting with myself with the urge to eat and i always loos ... i am over weight , i have no close friends to push me forward with my diet and i am loosing hope !!! is there someone who is familiar with this type of condition or status ? or has been or seen a similar case ?

A. For exercise I walked...started out a little at a time and walked everyday...this is going to sound so silly to you but I am a person who likes to set goals and meet them. SO I picked out a place I wanted to go( it was New Orleans) I found out miles from where i was to there and i charted the distance I walked until I "walked" to New Orleans, once there I picked a place( Denver, Co) and again walked to Denver. When I first started walking it was a 1/2 mile at a time BUT before I knew it it was a mile, two miles etc. It encourage me to "keep walking". Now I have a lot of health problems that aren't associated to my weight BUT I still try to make sure I walk...hey if interested maybe we could pick a place and both "walk" there...it would encourage me to walk daily also! Jay I wish you the best of luck and again contact me if you wish.
