I have definitely been a "repeat offender" myself, so I understand your frustration. I've found that just keeping track of what I eat and moving more have been really helpful. Even though I'm still 60 pounds above my goal, I completed my first triathlon on Sunday. We can do more at higher weights than we think. Just start slow.

Hmmm, about me....well, I'm a 48-year old female and I have been at this battle for as long as I can remember. Not unlike so many others. I am 5' 1" and have about 80 lbs to lose. The smallest that I have been was about 8 years ago when I got down to 165 lbs. Geesh, that was 40 lbs ago. I didn't plan on being here again. I had wanted to say good bye to those lbs once and for all. But they found their way back. So I'm having a "do over"
I have been dealing with a back issue for the past year and it has limited my physical activity drastically. It's something I'm working on, but I can no longer let that be my excuse for not doing my part and doing what I can. I'm not sure what plan is right for me. I did SouthBeach before and I was very successful on it. Sometimes I function best with limited choices. But, then boredom sets in and I start testing the waters and pushing the boundaries. I find that WW is the best all around plan in terms of you can have everything, so it takes away the deprived feeling. However, counting points can become tiresome and I usually slack off on that too. It's definitely going to require a bit more thought, but for today, I'm basically following the WW plan.
I want to say I'm excited about the journey ahead of me, but if I'm being totally honest, my feelings are more of irritation that I find myself here again and also skepticism that I will do it. I know I must believe to be successful, but I also must be honest. But, I am the only one in control of me, so if I want it bad enough, then it will happen. Doing nothing certainly isn't improving anything - lol.
So, here I go.....the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
