Starting over really stinks. Again - Same story different year

I took a year off (sounds like a vacation) not... Let my emotions take me back to old bad habits. I was feeding my emotional needs through food. I threw out all my 'big' clothes now I am struggling every day to fit into uncomfortable things way too tight due to gaining back all 40 pounds that I had lost. I refuse to buy bigger clothes again.

Making plans is a first step. As is often quoted, "No one ...
Starting over really stinks. Again - Same story different year

I took a year off (sounds like a vacation) not... Let my emotions take me back to old bad habits. I was feeding my emotional needs through food. I threw out all my 'big' clothes now I am struggling every day to fit into uncomfortable things way too tight due to gaining back all 40 pounds that I had lost. I refuse to buy bigger clothes again.

Making plans is a first step. As is often quoted, "No one plans to fail, they only fail to plan." So I am making plans.

I'm not completely restricting all foods, I have my weak moments, but in much smaller quanities than I used to eat . (to fill the other empty spaces inside). Most people want what they can't have so by forcefully restricting food or drink your desire for them will only intensify.

NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS BEING HEALTHY FEELS! right... who ever said that?????

Personal Information:
At 49 years old, I am how I've been all my life. . . overweight. I intend to change all that. I am in good health otherwise, so why can't I control this one part of my life?

I plan to throw out elastic pants, oversized tops, expandable anything that allows wiggle room!

Tami...I see you logged on a few days ago...

Can you be more consistent in logging in as a goal? I think motivation is the first step toward change. I would like to see more of you and interface with you more often.

Steadfast Denise!
You Go Girl!

Thanks for stopping by my page, yes it has been a long time since I've been around but I am still pushing through. I know what you mean about motivation. It is so easy to talk yourself out of a workout. The trick is not to over think it don't hit the snooze and just drag yourself out of that bed. You will be amazed at how much better you feel and it does get easier.

I still haven't made any significant loss but at least the weight hasn't gone higher so I'll take that little positive right there. I've added you as a friend and thanks much for the support. I certainly hope to return it in kind. Let's do this!
