When I was growing up and in high school I was not concerned with what size my clothes were or what I weighed. I was 5'7" and weighed 120 pounds and that information probably came from a sports physical. When I went to college I was homesick and ate out with friends. I probably turned to pop a lot at this time. People started to tell me I was looking good gaining some weight. I thought those were weird statements. I became more sedentary throughout college. Then I moved in with my boyfriend and started to have the feeling that I had better eat a lot because there may not be seconds. He was very active and could take in a lot of food. I weighed 155-160 when we got married. I worked a stressful job and would eat out nearly everyday at lunch. Then I weighed like 170 when I got pregnant. I have rods in my back because I have scoliosis. My doctor told me she did not want me gaining much weight during my pregnancy because of this. I weighed 200 pounds when I delivered. I was able to loose most of my pregnancy weight. Then I found myself stressed over having to confront a peer's inappropriate behavior. I don't remember turning to food over this, but I found myself gaining about 30 pounds between this situation and miscarrying our second child. I have fought my weight from 212 pounds to 188 pounds. One hundred eighty-eight pounds is the lowest I have been in four years. I know in my mind that I want to look and feel better. However, I cannot seem to stick with it. I gave up pop for almost three months but went back and have not been able to quit since. I trained for a 5K and ran it, but then quit once I had accomplished it. I am not disciplined. I am not sure what motivates me. I am not sure sometimes if I will ever stick with it long enough to lose the weight. I want to get pregnant again, but man if I get pregnant at this weight I am in trouble. Any help you have is greatly appreciated.

    Welcome back! You're in the right place to get motivated. Best place to start is the fitness and nutrition trackers, and cutting back on that pop. I know how hard that is; liquid calories are my biggest downfall: energy drinks, Coke, and beer; what would life be without them? But I'm trying, and getting better all the time. Good luck and have a great weekend!
