Refocusing needed!

I have had issues with my weight since I was 12 years old. I have dieted off and on and lost the weight and then put it back on. I once again lost the weight a few years ago via Sparkpeople, but I have begun to add some of it back on little by little. It started around Christmas of 2011. I gained back around 10 - 15 pounds over a few months, but really saw it keep creeping on during this past Christmas season and beyond. I have now gained back almost 40 pounds! I am VERY frustrated with myself. ...
I have had issues with my weight since I was 12 years old. I have dieted off and on and lost the weight and then put it back on. I once again lost the weight a few years ago via Sparkpeople, but I have begun to add some of it back on little by little. It started around Christmas of 2011. I gained back around 10 - 15 pounds over a few months, but really saw it keep creeping on during this past Christmas season and beyond. I have now gained back almost 40 pounds! I am VERY frustrated with myself. Today I am joining a 90 day challenge that I hope will help me get in the habit of strength training. That is one of the main areas in which I struggle. I will strength train for a few days or a few weeks; but then I stop, because I find cardio a lot easier and I burn more calories with it. I do know, however, (based on all the information out there) that if I would just stick with the strength training I would end up burning more. Unfortunately, I want the quick fix.
I have become a runner! Which was one of my goals over the last couple of years. This past Fall, my husband and I ran the equivalent of a 5k. With the time change and the colder weather, however, we stopped running. I purchased a gym membership for both of us a couple of weeks ago, and I am now going through a 4 week program to get myself back into running. I also purchased a fitbit for my birthday this month, to help me get more active.
I plan to become much more active here on Sparkpeople, to help me with my goals.

My week has started out great! Hope yours is going well too. Right now I am reading Plum Lucky; I thought I had read it before and was rereading, but I don't remember it so far. It is as hilarious as the rest! I have been reading motivation articles here on Spark.
Go Team Morelli! emoticon
