I also have a hard time with motivation, and have recently gained 15 pounds quickly due to stress and comfort eating. I am also looking for help to keep on track and begin eating right again.

What worked for me was taking baby steps, I didn't try to change everything all at once. I picked one or two things to work on, and then each week or two I added another goal. I also didn't look at this as a diet, but a lifestyle change. It's normal to have setbacks along the way, so don't let that discourage you.

My most important motivation was realizing that I needed to become healthy and fit to live a happy life. Once I committed to being healthy, I was on my way and continue down that path. Join some teams who will cheer you on. emoticon

If you make the unconditional commitment to reach your most important goals, if the strength of your decision is sufficient, you will find the way and the power to achieve your goals.

I've been on and off with healthy eating and exercising.
Recently I fell off hard and gained about 30lbs in a short time.
I've never really been healthy and am trying, but feel like I'm failing myself.
Any helpful words would be greatly appreciated.
