If you are a moron, than we are all morons. I would guess that most of us have experienced re-gaining weight to some degree. As others have stated, stop beating yourself up! You are here and getting back on track. I say kudos. You can do this. You are a worthy person, deserving of kindness and support.

Thank you guys for the kind words. It seems like it's more work to start again than it was when I started the first time. I overate by 200 cals last night...but ate all of my fruits & veggies. I didn't drink all of my waters, but I did drink 6. I started off today with a zumba workout and fruity breakfast. I'm going to try and start looking at the positives...hopefully the weight will come off like the first time.

Would you let someone talk to your child that way? Your mom? Of course not.
DO NOT belittle yourself. You are NOT a moron, and I won't hear of you calling yourself that. The first thing I want you to work on before you start on this diet train is work on fixing that attitude. You are hurting yourself with such talk. You are not a moron, you're a human being, a person who made less-than-perfect choices. I want you to go to the bathroom, look in the mirror, and tell yourself that you are NOT a moron.
And mean it.
Once you do that, you can focus on developing the healthy lifestyle habits you need to get it off and keep it off. And we'll be here for you.
2 years ago this month I was down a total of 104lbs. Over the next 18months, yup, only 18 months, I managed to gain back just shy of 80lbs. 80. In 18 months. That means I ate bad enough that I was gaining almost a pound a week.
But, I'm here now, and I'm doing the best that I can to take the weight back off. SP works, you know it works, just get back on the horse and recommit to it. You can do it, I know you can! You've taken the hardest step which is admitting and owning what happened, now it's time to do something about it.
You're not a moron. You are a human. Don't beat yourself up we have all been there. Even the most perfect sparker.
I'm a Sparker for life and I have gained back seven pounds. I have come to figure out that I will never be off of Spark. I will be here for the rest of my life.
I would suggest after dinner finding something to do that gets your mind off food. Maybe a craft. Go for a walk. Listen to some music. I don't recommend watching tv because they bombard you with food commercials and make you think you are hungry.
You could also plan a small but satisfying snack for after dinner.

I can't believe I let myself get here again. I lost 30 lbs on SP 2 years ago and I've gained it all back. I'm such a freaking moron!!!!! I sign up for all diets and I fail because I just don't have the motivation. Today I finally decided to start SP AGAIN... At least I worked out. Now, how do I stop myself from bingeing after dinner?? All I want to do is eat sweets and my calorie range goes out the window.
