I'm really struggling. I have not done anything productive with my health. I work, sleep, eat, and go back to work again. I don't have energy to do anything, and when I do, I don't see any progress.
What can I do? Where can I get the proper support to keep me on track?
I know what to do...
I've done it before...
Why can't I do it again????

I'm facing a dilemma.
When I first started Sparkpeople nearly 3 years ago, the weight just fell off. This time around, after I gained back all of my weight lost and THEN some, I'm easily discouraged at not seeing the scale move. Yes, I know weight loss is more than a number, yada yada yada, but if I don't lose weight, my doctor is going to yell at me again.
I'm 296 lbs as of this morning. Two years ago, I weighed just over 200. I have NEVER been so overweight/obese. When I first started Sparkpeople, I weighed around 260 lbs. Yuck.
Now, I'll admit, my eating habits are WAY out of line. I need to start eating healthy again, but right now I just don't have the motivation or the budget to purchase "good for me" food.
On the bright side, however, since we moved into town, I've been going on almost daily walks which I've been keeping track of on my Digifit app. I'm starting to ease myself back into DVD workouts such as Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. I just started yesterday, and I'm really just trying to pace myself. After all, circuit training is totally different when you weigh 200 lbs and now 296 lbs.
I'm really just looking for the right diet and routine for me again, and I need constant motivation or I'm quickly going to get off track. My health needs to improve. If it doesn't, I'm just holding myself from endless possibilities.

Well, another Valentine's Day has come and gone. I was gone for work most of the day but came home to some lovely flowers, chocolates, and a homemade dinner. He worked so hard. I definitely married a keeper. Too bad I was so incredibly drained to fully appreciate it all at the time, but we made the best of our short amount of time we had together that night.
In other news...my cholesterol is a tad bit elevated so the doctor is recommending a low fat diet. This is going to be difficult, but I'm doing some research and trying to find recipes that I would actually enjoy. I'm incredibly picky so the more recipes and foods I can find, the better!
I'm also trying to keep track of my blood sugar. The blood test results showed that my levels were a little low--69. Normal range is like 70-99. I bought a little pocket tester and some test strips and I'm going to keep track of it at least once a day. When I was younger, I was keeping track of it a little bit so I'm pretty used to poking my finger or arm with a needle.
I'm still gaining weight for some reason so hopefully a new diet will help. Now that my health is getting serious, I better start listening to my doctor.
Other than that, everything else is fine. Just working a lot and what not. Boring stuff...

Ok, so my favorite food is, of course, pizza.
I crave it all the time and I could eat it everyday if I could. It's so crazy, you'd swear I was pregnant (I'm not).
Does anyone have any tips to help with these cravings?
I've tried Lean Pockets, Lean Cuisine Pizzas, Smart Ones Pizza Bites, but I always end up binging on them, and I'm getting sick of it because I know it's bad but I can't seem to hold myself back.
I'm not a veggie pizza kind of person, so would just plain old cheese pizza be better for me?
