Without Struggle There Is No Progress

I've been a member of Spark since Aug. of 07, although I didn't start using it until Jan. of 08. I lost 33 lbs. and maintained it for over a year. When I turned 50 I looked and felt the best I had in years.
Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.

Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.
Over the years of losing and not learning how to maintain I've learned that I have to do exercise I enjoy, eat some of the foods I like, and not try to be perfect.
I'm going to try again to get this weight off. I felt so much better and better about myself when I was thinner. I'm not going to make promises that I will reach certain goals by specific dates. That has worked for me in the past, but not lately. I don't want to break any more promises to myself so I'll take it slow.

It's completely understandable that your eating isn't great when you're packing to move so soon. I'm sure that's super stressful and taking a lot of your focus. I hope the move goes smoothly!

I wondered if that's what it was, but it's so close to the house! Did the storm move it or just smash it?

Yep, I'm not big on making a huge thing out of birthdays. I'm happier just spending the day with dh doing something we both enjoy and having dinner than I would be at a party. I'm not the partying sort, I guess!
