It seems like the first time I lost weight it was easy - I was 21 (I'm now 25) and went from 239lbs to 159lbs in less than a year. Now I'm back up to 205lbs-ish and I'm finding it really hard. Controlling my eating is harder than ever before, working out seems impossible, and I'm just lacking a general sense of motivation. I blog over my lunch hour and find motivation that way but by the time I get home from work I'm so pooped it's all I can do to make a healthy dinner let alone work out. Then I tell myself I'll turn in early, get up early, and work out but the moment that alarm clock goes off I almost always shut it off and go back to sleep.
I read inspirational quotes, have a journal, track my nutrition, etc but I just can't get motivated. I can't afford a gym membership of any sort and I don't have any close friends nearby to work out with. I love to run (it's the only exercise I really enjoy) but it's sooooooo cold and dark whenever I have the time that I just don't do it.
I know it's easy once I get started...but I'm stuck in neutral right now
