5'8" and weigh about 279 lbs. I can not for the life of me lose any weight. I will lose a couple pounds and then gain it right back. I try to eat right, drink water, get exercise (although I am working on exercising more), but nothing helps. Does anyone know of maybe taking a diet pill or something to help? Or what are some of your successes in losing weight
Thanks in advance for all your advice! :)

*also, don't use pills, shakes or strict diets. You don't need them and they ultimately aren't good for you and don't usually stick once you quit using them.
here is a link to the group if you want it:

I agree with pp's. Make short term goals. While you already have an idea of where you want to be, make a short term goal for a month or a week. It's easier to not get discouraged when you allow yourself to celebrate the smaller successes. They are all stepping stones to your ultimate goal.

I'm 5'4", and I was 269 lbs 3 years ago. I've lost over 100 lbs. I eat clean and I work out, and it makes all the difference. I have a couple of journals about my journey and what's working for me if you want to read them (I'm not selling anything). I'd really encourage you to stay away from pills and other fads. It CAN be done without surgery, too.
DEFINITELY check out the Healthy Weight Loss group Charlotsomtimes linked, too!
