Way to go on the weight you lost! You know you can do it. Even without the remodel, this time of year is hard on eating habits, I think. I struggle a lot with a chronic lack of motivation and discouragement. I'm over 50 and have 50 pounds to lose. I have found a lot of encouraging articles in the Motivation area of SparkPeople. I print them off so I can read them over and over. You're not alone! I wish you the very best on this endeavor.

Hi Dan, My goodness! Since you've already lost ALL that weight, you certainly know the skills to keep it off permanently! I sympathize with you on kitchen renovating, which really can sabotage good eating habits; but, as they (who are "they" anyway) :-) But as they say............this too shall pass. Just remember to stay focused..and don't be too hard on yourself. Slow and steady wins the race. Stock up on some GOOD snacks and lots of bottled water and reward yourself with an old movie you've been wanting to watch, but were just 'too busy.' Or go for a ride around the neighborhood/city and take in all of the beautiful decorations and Christmas lights. Take time to enjoy the journey; it's not always about the end result, but finding JOY along the way. Blessings to you Dan
Hey everyone, needing some encouargement. Lost 112 lbs over 4 years and have kept it off, pretty much. This summer had surgery on an arm which threw a wrench in my workout routine. Also had our kitchen renovated, which has promoted unhealthy eating habits. Need to loose at least 20 lbs to feel good again. Short on enthusiasm and motivation. Kitchen still isn't done. Wow how quickly we can resume our old unheatlhy habits! Help! Dan
