"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

Hi, my name is Judi. I am 64 yrs old and over 40 lbs overweight. Have been most of my life! I live in a little cottage in the woods with my little dog Molly. Molly weighs 11 lbs and is a minature Daschund/Terrier mix. Molly and I walk for miles every day and she just loves to run. I have a hard time keeping up with her. I am a Diabetic with High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol. I am Bi-Polar and this is kept pretty well under control with my meds, but, I do get depressed. I have never slept well and I think it has a lot to do with weight control. I average about 3 hrs a night and then I walk around in a daze and eat all day.
I did really good when I first started on here 3 weeks ago. I bought everything for all the meals and at only what I was supposed to, but, 2 days ago I made a batch of the Apple Oatmeal Muffins and ended up eating every one of them while they were hot and I haven't stopped eating since. The 6 lbs I lost is starting to come back on.
How do you get yourself motivated again after you have "fallen off the wagon". I am getting very depressed over this and hardly got out of bed to-day.
Anybody got any good ideas for me? Thanks
