Two years ago I had the same experience when stopped working on shifts and started a LAT relationship half here in Amsterdam half in Rome. My in laws are Italian and very indulgent with food. I went all the way and went over the 100 Kg. That brought hi sugar levels as a consequence. I decided to change.
From 102 Kg I am now at 97 and my goal is to go below 90.I started cycling again and walking a lot. I take the stairs instead of the lift and do yoga three or four times a week and Water Fitness once a week. Besides my weight loss, looking better in the mirror and fitting better on my pants I also stopped using the diabetes medication. All this are incentive to keep me going on. I also meditate several times a week and go to a Buddhist temple for spiritual support. With the exception of Water Fitness I can do all these activities also at home if the weather does not allow me to go out. Maybe you can try some of them.

Hi All! I am an RN from upstate NY I recently switched from a very active night-shift job to a more sedentary day job. The positive and negatives here do not cancel each other out. While I do have a more normal family life, I am far less activeand have more opportunity to socialize and eat. Throw menopause into the mix and BOOM, I've got 15-20 lbs I would like to lose!
