Instead of walking, can you get ahold of an exercise bike, place it in your room where you usually sit and watch tv, and get your duff on that bike, try to increase your time slowly.....don't worry about the eating at this point. Your weight will start to go down, and that will encourage you to eat healthier, and slowly you will pick up momentum. A person can get sick of walking every day, no matter what all the magazines say.................

Just keep pushing through. Give yourself a small achievable goal. Really small if that is what it takes, eventually add more goals. I have been struggling right now too, my goal is to keep recording my food intake and to do my exercise minutes. I am going over in calories a lot, but I know where I am at and at least I can say I kept moving. Everyday it gets a bit better. Surround yourself with what you want to achieve. Read all the articles, do the quizzes and trivia. The more time you devote to your goal the easier it is to achieve them..just my opinion

Last year at this time I weighed in at 210 pounds. I decided then that it was time to get busy and get rid of the weight. I started eating healthier and walked 30 minutes a day 5 days a week. I lost down to 173. It took a while, but I sure felt better. Christmas was a challenge, but I made it through. However I stopped walking and eating healthier foods. I have been trying for months to get back on track. I haven't gained any weight, nor have I lost anymore because I am having the hardest time mentally. Do any of you guys get into this slump? I mean I wake up every morning charged and ready to get going and within hours I have lost it. What do you do to get motivated again? Thanks in advanced for your advice and ideas.
