Hi and welcome to the team, to the site and to the forums!

The biggest thing for me was to understand that there is no finish line. Once I hit my goal weight, I still had to make healthy choices and exercise or I would gain weight and start all over. I'm currently trying to lose between five and ten pounds (depending on how much I ate the day before!) to get back where I want to be.

Tracking (for me) is critical. Support here (and IRL) helps too. You can do this!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

I've been a yo-yo dieter for years so I do understand the frustration. My downfall has always been that once I have a "bad" eating day, I quit because I figure I've blown it so why bother. That isn't the way to think and I finally get it. If you stumble and fall, get back up and keep going. I had a horrible food day on Thursday and it truly was unavoidable. I chalked it up and got back on track on Friday. Also, don't be too hard on yourself or deny yourself a particular food. I have learned that I can eat anything if I don't overdo it. Biggest thing for me is tracking everything I eat. If I don't track it I get totally out of control without even realizing how much I'm shoving in my mouth. Good luck - you do get a lot of support on SP message boards!
