It is such a hard long journey and so easy to fall off track. I havent gotten back on the trail myself yet. I keep saying Monday I will try again. I buy all the healthy food over the weekend and tell myself I will start eating right and exercsing. But you are right, the more blogs and stories I read on Sparkspeople the more hope and motivation I am getting. Knowing we are not alone in this makes it easier....

I know nothing aboutt he Med. Diet Plan. Are there a lot of rules? SOmetimes, I think that is too hard. I think that all things in moderation is fine. I also think that eating the fruits and veggies helps you feel full, and you don't crave all the other garbage as much.
Also, workouts....try to make a commitment to work out at leat 10 minutes 5 days a week. Once you get into it, you will more than likely want to keep going. I wish I could really help you, but this is what is working with me.
That, and of course, a lot of prayer.
Keep going ladies. You are worth it!!

I wish I could help, but if misery loves company you are not alone. I was sticking to a healthy,natural eating plan and seeing results, even though my stomach never really got used to it, lol. I need to find a happy medium and start again, Scared to get on the scale and see the damage I have done! We CAN start over again before too much is regained! Even though my computor is "messing up" for lack of a better term ,I am gonna spend as much time on this site as possible, it really seems to help. When I have my grandson extra hrs., and can't get on I don't do as well. Hang in there and don't give up!
