As usual, Archimedes gives great advice! Choose a few easy goals (not too many) and just start gaining some consistency. It's amazing how being consistent even on something that is very easy can build your confidence, which starts a virtuous circle where that confidence helps you achieve other goals. Get it girl!

I have read that PCOS (poly-cystic ovarian syndrome) makes weight loss more challenging. It would be a good idea to talk to your physician about how best to approach this. (S)he also might want to refer you to a registered dietician for specific dietary guidance.
Take baby steps and a year from now you'll be amazed at how far you've come.

thanks I needed that as well. I felt very low today. No exercise and it is 830 pm. I am still hoping to dance a little with my music award show tonight. I hope this feeling does not last. I didn't even want to cook. I ate the best I could.

Welcome to Spark People ! I give all new members one piece of advice and it's this,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". If the only healthy thing you did for yourself was drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.
Don't beat yourself up because you've gained some weight. That's something that has happened to every single member at one time or another. We're all experts at yo yo dieting. Well, that was the past. You can't change the past, but you CAN influence and change the future.
That's why SP encourages all its members to start with some simple changes first. Don't try to do everything at once or you will end up frustrated. Set some simple goals you can stick wtih. Example, if you're not eating 6-9 servings of fresh fruit and veggies, set a goal to eat 2-3 servings each day for one week. If you're not drinking 8 glasses of water, set a goal to drink 2-4 glasses each day for one week. If you're not exercising, don't try to do an hour a day, set a goal to take a 30 minute walk each day for one week. Once you've achieved these goals, then you set new ones.
And that's how good health starts. It's not all or nothing. It starts with a few simple changes you can stick with.
Be kind to yourself as you would to others. It really does take time to lose.

I have school which takes up a good amount of time some times its so hard to pack a lunch for school. But I have to as tracking school foods near impossible. I am sad to see how I have let myself go. I used to be 160 which was still not my healthy weight says doctors. Then I was diagonalized with Polly sis-tic overs which is basically like pre-canner to overys. The hormones attack the overys which can kill them. So to stop it I was put on birth control which made me gain to 200. Now I feel like giving up but I want to lose and get back down to 150.
I am not sure how far I will go now that I have a large rear and a bust size of triple d going down to much will make me look off especaily being only 5'0. So please help any one.
