Need someone to help me
I'm looking for someone to help me with weight loss, and the mental obstacles associated with it. I'm also looking for help with self esteem and someone who will really hold me accountable and yet genuinely care. I need that "tough love" approach from a neutral person outside of my friends and family. I feel like I'm at a point where if I don't do something NOW about these things that the consequences will be drastic. And yet I have self sabotaging habits that prevent me from doing something now. Please help me.

You've come to the right place!  Many caring and supportive therapists here.

As a yoga teacher and holistic wellness counselor, I would be happy to help you reach your physical and mental goals.  We could either do this by chat or email; the latter is the most convenient as well as least expensive.  Please let me know if I can be of help.

You have taken the first and most important step through recognizing the need for change. Congratulate yourself on this. This empowers you and will help you to take further steps. It is what we believe about ourselves that is perhaps the most important thing. Believe that you are a special, unique person who can have high self-esteem - and believe that asking for help is one of the things that shows how special you are - and you will start the process of recovery. Regarding the self-sabotage - human beings have a tendency toward something called "homeostasis", that is the inertia that keeps us within a situation or lifestyle even if we know that a change would be better.

Change leads to territory that is by definition unknown, and thus somewhat frightening.

I would be happy to help with the processes of change that you have identified, as I am sure my colleagues would too. My best wishes for the future.

Weight loss can be a rollercoaster of a journey. You are taking the first step in admitting that you need help to overcome this. I would suggest starting with small goals first. You can also set up supportive counseling weekly to track progress.

Hi D,
You sound as though you're ready to make a change and this is great! Motivation and being, "sick and tired of ....." your situation is the perfect point for making significant changes.
I've worked extensively with clients struggling with eating disorders of all kinds, and while you might not feels your situation falls into the category of an "eating disorder" we are talking about difficulties with weight, food, self esteem, and perhaps additional underlying emotional issues.    

I would love to help you and i can guarantee that there is hope and there are ways to restructure your way of thinking, problem solving and developing new habits to lead you to a healthier and happier place!
