OG's Trek to Goal!

I have been at a standstill with my weight loss after losing over 140 pounds. I basically slowly fell back to bad habits beginning in summer 2008. A severe illness knocked my health for a loop in 2009 and I am now fighting fatigue and pain issues to get back to exercising. I have gained all but 40 of the pounds I lost back.

I have been at a standstill with my weight loss after losing over 140 pounds. I basically slowly fell back to bad habits beginning in summer 2008. A severe illness knocked my health for a loop in 2009 and I am now fighting fatigue and pain issues to get back to exercising. I have gained all but 40 of the pounds I lost back. The real shocker was going to the store and finding that even size 24's were snug now, as all my regained weight seems to be having a party around my middle. I've already made healthy lifestyle changes with a return to sobriety in 2010 after relapsing when I was 17 years sober. But for me weight loss and fitness is a more daunting task. I'm also seeking to return to the career I left in 2004 to care for my parents and my weight is an obstacle to that as well. Of course struggling with money is challenging my food choices, but I am learning to eat as healthy as possible on the cheap. I have to start somewhere, so this is where I begin again!
