Experts offer advice for those with lots to lose

10. Don't Rule Out Weight Loss Surgery.

"For me, weight loss surgery turned out to be the right option -- but I did try every other option first," says Goetze.

She suggests you give yourself room to experiment, but keep in the back of your mind that surgery to reduce the size of the stomach is an option for many people.

"It is dramatic, and not easy, but it can be comforting to remember that there is always hope, no matter what," says Goetze, who lost nearly 400 pounds after she opted for stomach-reducing surgery.
