I guess I'm not new anymore. Been here long enough to have some success and grow complacent, and so I stopped tracking calories in and skipped the gym for a couple weeks. I guess I am lucky that I havent gained any back, but definitely noticed that I stopped losing. Eyeballing portions, and not working out are likely the culprits.
In my defense I have been working 60-70 hours a week, but that doesn't mean I don't want to take care of myself so I am recommitting to track calories and try to hit the gym regularly as much as possible even when I work a lot of hours.

Has this happened to anyone else? Sure could use motivation or encouragement right now!!

    I think we've all been there. I went home for vacation, came back and stayed in vacation mode. It wasn't until my husband deployed that I said, "the hell am I doing here?!?!" And got back on track and going to the gym and measuring again. It's a lot to do, but its all in how much you want it. If you want it, go get it!

    [Can't quit working so much.] I do asphalt paving, and get laid off yearly from mid december to mid april, so that leaves only 8 months to work.

I do try to take healthy snacks and lunches. Tuna sandwiches and pbj, apples, oranges, strawberries, chobani yogurt, almonds, muscle milk light in morning. Any other healthy snack/lunch suggestions?

I like the walking idea that sounds good :)

    Quit working so much!! :P Make sure you're taking healthy snacks and meals to work with you. Pre-bag portions if you can as well. And take a short walk after work. It'll reduce your stress and get in some exercise and nature. You should wear a pedometer too!! What kind of job do you have??
