I started my journey to weigh loss and healthy living January 2011 and reached my goal weight in March 2012 (losing over 40 lbs). Over the last last year it went up and down several times but I never got back to the goal. Each time I gained weight it was harder and more frustrating to get back to the healthy habits. Finally I lost control and have to face the music. I gained 15 lbs and feel miserable, physically and emotionally. Enough is enough and I just started to get back to the healthy habits.
I have been drastically cutting down on processed foods and sugar. I'm sugar sensitive and have withdrawal symptoms (headaches, strong cravings) the last 3 days. This should be getting better with time. I made time for some short bursts of exercise to get started again. Day 6: Still on track and feeling a bit better. I'm taking one step at the time and know that I have to be persistent and forgive myself for my weakness.
