It seems like my weight loss journey is going in the opposite direction. I keep gaining weight instead of losing it. Thing is, I know the problem and yet I can't get it under control. I over eat at lunch. Since I work in a school kitchen, there's always food available to me all day (and it will always be like that...because I'm going into culinary arts in college).

I'm going to start packing my lunch again because I just can't handle eating the school's lunch. It seems like I can't just choose between one thing and even if I do...if we have something like rolls...I'll take two or three of them.

I went back into those old habits and they're becoming increasingly harder and harder to break. Harder now than they were the first time. I've also gotten back into the mind set of if I fail one day...I'll just go ahead and binge the rest of the day and say that I'll just start again tomorrow. I KNOW that it's just setting me up for failure. It won't help. I can't do that.

I need to turn things around. I can't keep going down this path and gaining all that weight that I've already lost back. I've already gained 10 pounds of it back. I really do need help though. Maybe someone willing to talk to me every day...or a team...ANYTHING!

    I am in the same boat. I lost 40 and now have gained back 15. Just got sloppy with eating fast food during the summer and not walking as much as we did in the beginning . Am going back to basics the past few weeks and really trying to stay within my calorie limits and focus on moving my rear. Having a desk job doesn't help, so we are trying to walk right away when we get home before something comes up and its too late and dark to get out.

emoticon This plateau/ back slide will reverse. Just have to focus on the good things and do it.
