I'm in the same boat - second time on spark and the reason I came back here is that I know taking the time to track my food intake helps me understand just how much I eat and what I consume makeup-wise. Right now I'm in the mind frame to "stick with it" and make it work - too bad I'm easily distracted after a few weeks or month. That is why I'm trying to use these boards and talk about it so that possibly I will keep with the program. I feel much better when my pants and shirt-neck fit comfortably and I can tie my shoes without strain.
I have found out this time that I love the 10minute exercise videos - I can always sneak one or two of these in so that I get at least some exercise in every day - I feel much better and motivated to do more once I do 1.
So Good luck my friend - I wish you the best!

I'm getting serious again. I've decided to baby-step my way back to a healthy lifestyle. As for exercise, I'm going to 'fast walk' 3-4 times a week....I'm at 24 min sessions now, but want to work my way up gradually to 40 min sessions. I'm not even going to consider going beyond that.

As for food: for starters, I've just laid down the law that I'm not going to permit any of my binge favorites in the house until I reach my goal. I will probably encounter these foods outside the home, but I never binge anywhere except home. [I'm such a good person when the world is's alone at the home where the devil strikes me...and he wins]

Next baby step currently undetermined.
