Using this site is helping me already! Keeping track of what I eat/drink helps me not eat the junk food at work because I don't want to have to list a bunch of junk on my nutrition tracker. It's little things like that that make the big difference for me. I also haven't had any soda today, which is something I have every day at work. Tonight when I get home I am going to try and find an exercise video to try out. Hopefully this is the beginning of a turn around for me :-)
Thank you everyone for your encouragement!

I am totally in the same boat! I lost my mojo! One thing that I've learned is when I get to this point where I feel like I'm totally back at where I started, I start again. I make small goals such as work out for 10 min/day, drink my water, get enough sleep, eat 2-3 fruits & veggies, etc. I find that when I start these smaller goals my drive to achieve the larger goals eventually comes back. Don't beat yourself up over what you should have been doing and just start doing what you can.

Hello everyone! I started my spark people page quite some time ago. I was going to the gym after work 2-3 times a week, drinking minimal amounts of soda, and I had cut out all late night snacking. I wasn't losing a ton of weight, but I was feeling better. All of a sudden my kid's soccer season hit...between games, practices, homework, work and home I had no time to get to the gym and most of what we were eating was fast food. Now soccer is over and I am home again...but I gained back what little weight I had lost and now I don't know where to start. Any suggestions or comments to help me out? I would like some help getting back on the wagon.
