I know exactly how you feel. About 7 years ago I lost 75 lbs by exercise and eating right. Gradually over a few years I have put back on @ 40 lbs of what I had lost, at first I wanted kick myself for allowing it to happen - but realized it was up to me to start a healthy lifestyle again. When I first lost the weight I set small goals of at least 5 lbs a month, it feels really good when you can reach a goal. Take baby steps and you will get there. This time it's a little different for me, I am loosing more inches than pounds - I just keep pushing along because a loss is a loss ....that number on the scale does not define who I am - I always feel better when I am taking care of myself. I think loosing weight and keeping it off is one of the hardest things to do, but the benefits are so worth it. Good luck to you!!
I joined spark people before and never managed to stick to it. When I joined I had about 50-60 lbs I wanted to lose. Now I have over 100 to lose and I'm feeling overwhelmed. I know I need to lose it but knowing that I have such a large goal is daunting. Anyone out there have any tips on how to stay motivated on such a long jouney. I set a goal weight of 125 (believe it or not I ued to be there) and a goal date of Sept. 21, 2012. Oh boy I would love a fast forward button lol!
