i've been trying to lose weight all my life and i am always caught up between extreme diets and binges. I just wanted to reach out to this community for help because there are others who are in the same boat as me.
Feel free to reply with tips , ideas , suggestions that everyone can use to gain that willpower we need to shed this unwanted weight.

For me, it's best if I view it as a lifestyle change and not a diet. People tend to go on and off of diets, but when you make the effort to make a change in your overall life - eating right and exercising - one tends to stick to it for life (for the most part).
I calorie count (I keep a notebook in my purse or lunch bag) and my exercises include walking, weights (bowflex), aerobics, and pilates.
Whatever you end up making your choice of change, just do your best and keep it up. Best of luck to you.
