Yes this is an uphill battle for me at this time. I had just lost 9 lbs in November and since then I have gained either 20 or 25 lbs. leaving me rather disgusted in myself. My original weight in 2007 was 350 lbs and I have worked so hard to get that 110 lbs off, and now I am gaining weight by leaps and bounds. I have no excuses, I feel motivated everyday when I get up and by midnight I am just a wreck all over again. Right now is a new moment, and I spent and hour doing cardio and weight strengthening exercises. So it is definitely a beginning. Thanks so much for replying. Lisa
What has helped me is recognizing I am creating new life patterns not a temporary way of life to lose weight. I will track or journal forever and I am an exerciser. Exercise is not something I have to do. It is a tough mental shift, but it is working for me.
You recognized your backsliding and now it is onward to success!

Hi thanks for the encouragement. I need so badly to get back on track. All I want to do is eat, eat and eat some more. But each moment I have a new chance to change that back to my motivated self. Your words really helped me to want that. Lisa

I have been really screwing up lately. I haven't tracked my food, and when I do, my calories are like 2900 or 3200. eating hi sugar carbs every day, not paying attention to what I eat or why I eat it. I decided to face the music today and tracked my measurements and weight. I have gained 1 pounds since mid November. I now have to lose 95 pounds to get to goal. I went to the gym this morning and did a lot of heavy housework. So I am now back on track. But what a horrible lesson to learn. I know I need to track my food and exercise every day. So now I am newly motivated to try again. Any encouragement will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Lisa
