Isn't it amazing now that with a 10 lb gain from your low, you have all those feelings and tiredness! I went up about that much from my low as well and was amazed at the difference I felt and wondered how I had any energy at my high weight!
If you have been "off the wagon" for over a year and only put on 10lbs, I am guessing that making some small changes will be enough to reverse that quickly. It seems I can fall off the wagon for a week and put on 10lbs! :)
I think you know what you need to do to feel better and have to put your mind to work for you. Aside from just wanting your clothes to fit better again, what else will push you, because this is different for each of us. For me, it's about living each day to the fullest and being healthy long-term. I lost my dad to brain cancer this year and he went way too young (in his 50s), so my motivation is making the most of each day, pushing myself farther, living healthy and making the most out of the life we are given. It pushes me to keep going when I want to quit at that moment.
I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today? And whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row, I k now I need to change something. ~ Steve Jobs

Remember that exercise is key for a healthy lifestyle, but weight loss happens in the kitchen. Start focusing on making your next eating choice a healthy one. Make one good healthy choice at every meal, and start building from there!

At one point I was 170 lbs.. and got down to 125 lbs. I was almost at my goal of 120. Well, with working, moving to a new home with my boyfriend, and school I've just became so over worked that im incredibly lazy now when it comes to taking care of myself. I'm 135 lbs now. I hate the way I look in any of my clothes. I feel like crap, depressed. I dont want to go to the gym because I have to walk there in so much snow after working 8-12 hours. I know i'm just finding excuses.. I eat so much now and a lot of crap. I don't know how to cook either. I just feel like im in a big rut, and im being effected mentally and physically. I don't know how to get out of it. I don't really know anyone here in my new city. I've tried classes and people always go with other people so its not easy to make a work out friend or buddy.
