How did I get back here?

Hello Fellow Sparks : )
It has been awhile since I have been active on Sparkpeople. Without any real explanation or excuse, I have gained thirty plus pounds in less than five months. Doctors have no idea and trust me I have searched everywhere for a reason. Never the less, here I am at almost 200lbs! This is the heaviest I have ever been without a baby in my tummy.
Well I spent a month of just pure shock and devestaton. I worked so hard at my weight loss and maintaining it. ...
Hello Fellow Sparks : )
It has been awhile since I have been active on Sparkpeople. Without any real explanation or excuse, I have gained thirty plus pounds in less than five months. Doctors have no idea and trust me I have searched everywhere for a reason. Never the less, here I am at almost 200lbs! This is the heaviest I have ever been without a baby in my tummy.
Well I spent a month of just pure shock and devestaton. I worked so hard at my weight loss and maintaining it. I felt defeated. So for the first time in four years I took a month off of everything, dieting, exercise etc. I gained an additional five pounds and finally pushed to the limit.
So I am here but I am not staying here. I got approval from my doctor to begin exercising again. Today ( 11/7/11) I started again. I woke up this morning and walk/jogged in my living room for about forty minutes. It felt good but I know I have so much further to go.
Since I have lost weight before, I am determined to do it again. I can do it! This time I will document my journey better than the first time so I can help others. So much of this is a lifestyle change and the basics I already have, a good healthy diet with five fruits and veggies a day and no white food ( rice, bread etc.) I now have to focus on increasing my water, exercise etc.
I WILL DO THIS!!!

You can run the whole thing, perhaps stop for water breaks at the stop. I found my time wasn't all that different by adding walk breaks in. This morning, the humidity and temp was up in the 80s at 6AM. I decided I would run my 5 miles in intervals of 2:30/1. Yes, I could of run the whole 5, but I thought it would be better for my health...I am convinced it will save my knees in the long run.
