My heart completely broke watching this, because I have totally been there, I've been fighting the same battle. I had tears in my eyes knowing the exact feelings you are going through and having often on those low days asked my husband how can you love me? Thankfully, he's very patient with me, when I get sick and tired and completely frustrated. It's amazing to have that support, but it's also really hard because he doesn't know what it's like to weigh 300lbs and fight everyday to keep each pound off, or not self sabotage yourself with food because of a bad day.

I hope you know that if ever need someone to talk to, you can give me a call or a text. You definitely aren't alone my friend. You are one of the sweetest people I have ever met. And, you will find someone who loves you because you are an amazing person. I can't even imagine the courage it took to post this. You truly are one of the most inspirational people I know.

Sending you lots of extra hugs.

I met you for just a brief second at fitbloggin back in May and when I got home I bookmarked your blog. I hadn't visited in awhile but found my way here today and watched your video. Please realize you are a hanesome man that WILL find love. First love though has to be for yourself. You are worth loving. Please know you can lose the weight too because you can do anything. Believe me I do know how you feel I've been there too. I kept wondering if you've ever tried therapy, it's what helped me a lot, to just have someone to talk to about things and help me figure out connections between my issues with food, my past, my present, so many things. I know it's a struggle but just keep trying, don't ever give up on yourself because YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!

wow. Alan. I'm so sorry you feel this way. It sucks, I know this too. It gets tiring to fight this fight every day, even when you think it's not a battle to be won. But you ARE going to get past this my friend. I know you will! Just keep persevering! So many people out there can relate - I'm heading towards a 2 year plateau and I'm so sick of it sometimes. I sick of everything being about my weight, or what food I ate or what the freaking scale said. The mental games. You have to find and focus on other things even thought the number is obviously important. But something is triggering you feeling bad about yourself and your worthiness - I hope you can find out what that is really soon.

Hang in there Alan. I adore you and your openness and honesty. You are going to reach your goals, you just have to remain strong and patient.
