Have you ever felt so discouraged about weight loss you’ve wanted to give up your journey to better health? These self-care hacks will help!
Help! I Feel Discouraged About About Weight Loss
“Is it possible to make changes?” I asked my students.
“Umm, maybe?” one of them said.
“Probably not,” another chimed in.
“I can change my clothes,” the class clown said. “That’s a change, right?”
“Back when I weighed 190 lbs,” I said, “I didn’t–“
“Wait! Did you say one. hundred. and. ninety. pounds?” a student interrupted me.
“Yep. 190. Anyway, back–“
“How much do you weigh now?” one of the boys asked.
“You don’t ask a woman her weight,” a girl hissed at him.
“It’s ok,” I said, “I weigh 133 lbs. I don’t mind telling you because I want you to know you can make changes. It took five months to gain most of that weight and eighteen years to lose it and keep it all off.”
“I thought she weighed one-twelve or so,” I heard a girl whisper to her seatmate.
Inside, I laughed. I weighed 112 when I was 12. But life and 44 years have a way of changing how we look and how our body burns calories. “I’ve often felt discouraged about weight loss,” I assured my students. “But I want you to know you CAN make changes in your lives and in your world.”
The bell rang and interrupted our discussion.
In today’s podcast, I share nine hacks that helped me when I felt discouraged about weight loss. You can’t buy a magic pill to make you lose weight, get healthy, or make good choices. But you CAN make changes in your life, one baby step at a time.

Losing weight is not an issue;
that problem’s forever gone,
for, coughing blood into a tissue,
I really need to keep it on.
T’would be a funny foodie fate
(but I’m no foodie, so that’s cool)
that eating’s something that I hate,
and I therefore need a tool
to get past that grim aversion
and face a meal of mostly rice
(it, thank God, brings no reversion,
yeah, not puking it is nice),
so to face food with no fear,
I start a meal with lots of beer.
And ‘beer’ is my One Word for 2023.
