While I am not new to this weight loss journey, I am new to SparkPeople. I thought I would give it a try. I lost weight a few years ago and maintained it for a long time. Then life threw me a major curve ball. Being an emotional eater, I managed to gain back almost half of what I lost. I decided last spring I needed to make some changes and began eating right and exercising. I lost about 10 pounds in spring and early summer, but then I managed to get a little slack and unmotivated. Frankly, just bored with the whole diet thing. I haven't gained any back (thank goodness!), but I still have about 15 pounds to lose. I know that last little bit is the hardest to shed, so I thought I would hang out here for some motivation. I have already joined some teams and began tracking my food and exercise. I am just going to take it day by day and start working those good habits back into my routine. It's nice to know people struggle with the same issues as I do. I know I can do this. I have done it before. I just need to get back on that wagon again.
