Lost my way - after 42 lbs lost, I've gained 15 since winter :(

I successfully lost and maintained a 42 lb weight loss throughout 2011. A big bout of depression and anxiety this spring (after a high blood pressure and high cholesterol diagnosis) has led to a 15 lb weight gain. I am re-committing to healthy eating and exercise.

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in July. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? that is too much! cant do it! But i here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while sitting and leg raises. very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! emoticon emoticon
click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!!

Hey girl!! Yes, you SHOULD set a plan for your week! That's seriously the only time I find success in getting "back on track" after drifting away for a while. I can "talk about" what I"m going to do, but it might not happen unless I actually SPELL IT ALL OUT and commit to success with partners and friends to keep me accountable! Knowing that you'll check in with a SP friend or even your girlfriend about making your workout or sticking with your calories for the day always keeps my mind and motivation in the right place. I think of that friend every time I want to stray from my plan, and then I'm jazzed about SUCCEEDING all over again!

Let me know what YOUR plan for success is this week-- not generals, but SPECIFICS. What workout is planned for what days? How are you keeping yourself motivated? Making things specific helps me to actually accomplish them, rather than saying "sometime this week I'm going to ____" because then sometime becomes... next week. LOL!
