The past 6 months, I tried harder and am seeing results.

The difference? I look back on the past and realized I never gave an honest effort. A slice of pizza here won't hurt, some ice cream won't hurt. I could eat a little more and i'll just work it off.

The bottom line is that he likely never really tried as hard as he thinks he did. I know i didn't.
Fair enough. And good for you for your results. I guess I'm saying that 'just try harder' may have been your solution, and it might even be most people's solution, but without knowing more about the OP, it may not be his solution.

So we need some more info from the OP before we get the pitchforks out.
