I'm really just disappointed in myself. I lost all of that weight and felt really good about myself. I was in good habits of exercising and eating. Somehow things in the past year and a half have just slid downhill. At first it was just a few pounds back and then it turned into a whole 15. I don't feel confident anymore. I feel like I need to hide the fat rolls on my stomach. I got out of exercising

My main problemis that I blame my problems on an external source. Gaining all this weight was because of the stress. I just eat when I stress, thats what I do. I stopped exercising because I got hurt and then out of the habit. I need to be careful how I exercise.

I've finally realized that I am the one to blame for everything. It is my choices and mine only that have gotten me where I am. No one forced fried foods and doctor pepper down my throat. I am so busy but I spend so much time wasted on the internet that I could easily have spent doing a short workout.

I'm really working on getting back into good habits. Eating is the hardest part but I'm trying to make baby steps. Exercise has been easier since starting ballet. I really love doing that. I'm also working back up to be able to run a 5K.

I can do this. I can lose 15 pounds because GAINING that 15 pounds was my choice too.

    I think the fact that for all the downsides you've listed, you are going to try to get back in and change it, happens to be rather positive. You recognize what went wrong and you have ways to correct it going forward. That's a pretty big deal and worth a pat on the back, not a whipping.

    It's great that you are taking the steps needed to get back to it. Maybe making one of your goals would be to find a new outlet for stress to help combat the stress eating. Spark is such a great resource it has so much advice and support on emotional eating and managing stress, that's a big issue for me as well. But your here and your working on and that is a positive step in the right direction! emoticon

    I only gained 11 back from my goal, and I just could not maintain, but if I can get back there again, I am going to really keep in mind, that I can not eat everything I see. I never quit exercising, just started eating more calories, mostly candy.

    You have a choice here. Forgive yourself and move forward, or blame yourself and continue a cycle of negativity.

    I think you know what choice you should make.

    Getting on it now is the right idea. I'm getting back into eating and exercise after gaining back the 33 I lost plus more. I have 50 to lose now!

    Of course you can do it! You did it before. You know how to do this.
