Help in 2015

Okay, I totally fell off the wagon last year. I'm struggling with the desire to be at a healthy weight and staying there. Looking back at the time that I lost the weight I was trying to lose and meeting my goal - I felt GREAT and felt a wonderful sense of accomplishment. But once there I struggled with "now what?". Is this all there is? Sure a healthy body is great but I started looking for new goals that didn't involve workouts and weight loss. It seemed like as soon as my focus shifted ...
Okay, I totally fell off the wagon last year. I'm struggling with the desire to be at a healthy weight and staying there. Looking back at the time that I lost the weight I was trying to lose and meeting my goal - I felt GREAT and felt a wonderful sense of accomplishment. But once there I struggled with "now what?". Is this all there is? Sure a healthy body is great but I started looking for new goals that didn't involve workouts and weight loss. It seemed like as soon as my focus shifted so did my desire to keep exercising and keep eating those vegi's. It didn't take long for many of those lost pounds to find me again and my desire to put in the work to lose them diminished. How do I find that desire again? How do I find a balance that works for me and my lifestyle? I really need to get back on the wagon and find what works for me to not only achieve my goals but to figure out what is going to work for the long haul. I have a sister who lost about 150 pounds - she is obsessed with staying in shape. She exercises 2 times a day, has hired a personal trainer and all that she ever talks about is her workouts and what she is eating. It is boring and sometimes really difficult to be around her. I don't want to go overboard in either direction but it seems like I can't find a happy medium. Any suggestions? I did set a goal to start working out at least 3 days a week, drinking more water and eating more vegi's. I need some motivation to keep going.

Thanks for stopping by Cathy! I AM still running, but it seems I am constantly starting over. Trying to get in at least 40 mins of very active exercise a day and doing a lot of walking. Like you, Ive been struggling to keep the pounds off too! Glad you will be around to lend your encouragement and support.

A simple Hello
That I send to you
Just to let you know
Today I think of you.

A very simple word
Which means a lot
Just like a sincere smile
That comes from the heart.

Hope my simple Hello
That I seal with a kiss
Today would get to you
For it's you I truly miss.

Hoping you are having a great day

Ronnie
