I know you've done this before. That you use to get EXCITED
about every new 'diet' or shake, really believing that this was it.
You definitely didn't become a cynic overnight.
However, it did happen and now you're stuck: skeptical of every new 'miracle' diet (and you should be).
You're afraid of investing in another program and failing, but you're even more afraid of gaining more weight.
It's embarrassing to fail publicly, over and over again (especially if you're a high achiever like me), and that's what it feels like you're doing when you work this hard at something and never see any real, permanent change.
In spite of stress out over everything you eat, skipping breakfast (and occasionally lunch) and living off of coffee or smoothies PLUS spending what feels like hours doing cardio, without make progress.
If only you could be one of those women who carry their extra weight in the hips or the bum, but NO it's all around the belly where it's the hardest to hide (there's a reason for that and it's NOT just genetics).
