Hold it right there, JoJo! The first thing you have to do is stop thinking of yourself as a failure. Don't be so hard on yourself!
The way I see it, you have two choices here. 1) Try the Mayo diet again and see if you can stick to it the next time around, or 2) find another diet that's easier for you! Mayo just might not be the right one for you. I know that plenty of people use it successfully, but not every diet works for every person.
Personally, I highly recommend you try something you might find easier. What about counting calories like I do? I can have anything I want, in limited quantities, and I take weekends off (but don't go crazy). Or what about the "half" diet, where you just eat half of anything you normally would have eaten? These can both be very easy to stick to. And there are so many other diets out there. Or maybe just casually watching what you eat & trying to eat healthier would work?
Keep yourself open to other options besides Mayo. Get your exercise, and load up on water. You WILL find a plan you can stick to, and you WILL lose the weight! YOU CAN DO IT!!!
