thanks for the hugs! Yes stress does make it so much harder to get motivated to lose the weight. By the time I get home I just want to snuggle on my oversized chair and watch tv. Before I was getting home and doing the treadmill and zumba and I would walk 2 miles at lunch. Now I don't do anything. Can you tell me more about the bootcamp? Thanks for your reply! :)

Thank you! I admire you for losing the 100 pounds, I wish I had your willpower and determination. I watch the biggest loser and I see all the weight they lose and wonder how come I can't do that when I don't even have as much to lose as they do. I appreciate your support and I will be there to support you in what you need as well. I am really going to try to use this site more to help me achieve this goal of mine. I saw there was a group here in my town but they have been inactive for 60 days. I really wish there would be one here local. Thank you again for offering your support. I could really use it!

emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven’t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!

emoticon Stress makes it really hard to lose weight. I have experienced the same issue. The 28 day bootcamp helped me stay motivated. The workout s are short and manageable with my busy schedule & the exercise helps with the stress.

So I joined spark 6 months ago and at that time I was doing really good with my weight loss. However with these winter months and the lack of energy slowly I started going back to my old ways and gained 10 pounds back. I am very disappointed in myself because I worked so hard and now I am throwing it all away. I am trying to get back on track but sometimes its so hard because when you live alone its so easy to just grab a snack for dinner instead of cooking a meal just for me. I have started getting B12 shots hoping that will help with my lack of energy and I can get back into working out. My goal was to lose 50 pounds but now with my 10 that I gained it is 60 pounds that I need to lose. I really want to go to my annual checkup a lot thinner than last year. I just need some motivation...something lately I have lost. I know having problems at work hasn't been helping at all because I am under a lot of stress and I know I am an emotional eater. Hopefully I can get back on track before I gain more weight back....
