I thank everyone for the fantastic comments. <BR> <BR> I just want to share a follow up and some of what I've decided. <BR> <BR> I'm going to continue to make my health a priority but not like before. I'm going to really focus, no excuses. I'm doing it. <BR> <BR> I'm focusing on my financial situation. I'm not in any trouble, major debt or whatever. I recently left a job after ten years b...

Something I know in the back of my head. <BR> <BR> You need to decide what you want and plan for it so you can have it.

I didn't even eat everything I tracked (I prepared a meal, tracked it and then ate about half expecting to get hungry and finish it). I've been over a lot so I'm not super worried. I also won't let it become my normal. Also, I didn't do much fitness. Walk dogs like every day. Some household chores. No gym today, it's a rest day.
