Hey Pam, Welcome to SP and to the team.
I think we all do the up and down thing... it takes a long while if ever to be be able to maintain consistently (at least for me)
"Motivation is not something you find or lose, have or don't have. It is the product of how you see yourself in the world: active or passive, effective or ineffective, powerful or victimized, normal or pathological."

My name is Pam.
I have been on a healthy lifestyle change for a year or better with up and down results.
I think my problem has been my thinking. I have decided to start with baby steps of commiting to at least 3-4 x's a week of simple walking in the park. taking the stairs at work (2 flights a couple of times a day) streching..and replacing at least one meal per day with a protein drink. It's not an easy thing because I love comfort food!!! gimme a good pan of mac & cheese, you'll never hear a peep out of me! I have tried Medical Weight Loss Clinic..., weight watchers, and other failed things. Little did I know I what I need to do is have a total thinking overhaul!!!! I'm off to walk for my 2nd night this week....
