I haven't been doing very well and am in desperate need of some support. Ever since my sister came to visit this summer, it seems like all of the wonderful habits I have developed over all this time have just been flushed down the toilet. I'm back at school now and I'm not exercising at all and I'm eating the crappiest foods ever - sweet tea, fast food, fried foods...and I got a job at an Asian restaurant and I keep loading up on the fried rice even though the brown rice is sitting right there and snacking on egg rolls and filling up on sushi. It's ridiculous. I have gained over 10 pounds back and I don't want to be that person. I get so many compliments from people still about how I look so great. I don't want to be the one that just gains it all back. And I'm having this realization at the worst possible time - holiday season. I suck at the holidays in terms of food because I am the most festive person ever and I love baking. And I don't like eating in moderation. UGH. Maybe I did this whole thing wrong. Because when I look back on the changes I made in my life, I kind of dread going back to it.

I need help. I don't want to gain the weight back. I really really don't.

    Losing weight isn't about DIEting. It is about changing your attitude towards yourself first of all. You are not a bad person and your choices don't define you because you can always make a different decision. Don't try to change everything at once. One step at a time... for instance this week make sure you get 8 glasses of water a day and add 10 minutes of activity to your day.

    All that "bad for you" stuff often tastes so GOOD! What if you sketched out your menu for the day in the morning? You could include a "cheat" of one of the fried rice things or another "bad for you" item if you make up for the calories elsewhere or include extra exercise.

    Well, I don't like eating in moderation either, but at least I don't have to give up foods I like that way. Remember what you did before to have success at weight loss. Your bad habits aren't helping you. They are easy to fall back into though. Why do you dread going back to the changes you made?? You can still be festive at holiday time. Use SP recipes to find healthier versions of things you make. Make smaller amounts. Don't just give up. Keep on plugging along. You can do it!
