Thank you for your suggestions. :)

Yeah becoming the fat person I am today took time, changing those habit will take time to unlearn.

I think it is different for everyone. I've been very thin for most of my life, so this was new to me, but I was critically injured along with a few other speed bumps and gained weight. I set monthly goals and wrote down measurable ways to get there. What keeps me focused and motivated every day is to check into SparkPeople and read anything motivating, the articles or the success stories, even if I've read them before. It's a reminder I'm trying to get healthy, I haven't been doing this for a long time, so I may have to find new things along the way. I also made some silly goals that will mean something only to me.

I give new members one piece of advice when they are starting out and it is this,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". If the only healthy thing you did for yourself today was drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.

Good health isn't "all or nothing". Every little bit DOES make a difference.

Be patient with yourself and your body. Change does take time.

Please help. emoticon
I am not one who complains.
But I was hoping to gather a bunch of ideas to help with this winter slump.
Things are moving SLOWLY with the scale but moving in the right direction.

I just need some vim, vigor and motivational tips from you success stories out there...

Many thanks emoticon
