You have been on the battlefield with weight gain for years.
You’ve tried so many diets you feel doubtful that there is a diet out there that can actually help you lose weight AND keep it off.
The insecurities your weight causes overflows into every area of your life and seem to put a dark cloud over your self-worth.
You feel like you are at your wit’s end and you’re just not sure what to do.
