I can't tell you how many times I 'started over', but I know it was well in excess of twenty and probably more like forty over the course of thirty or so years. Be aware that you are now entering the success zone! I never lost more than forty or so pounds and always stalled or started gaining it back with more to boot within six months. I'm now on month fourteen and still losing... heading for a hundred pounds. The capper is, I can never see me going back. I have a whole new mindset.
My point is this. By starting over, you are doing the one thing that is absolutely necessary to success... you're keeping up the fight. The only way to lose the battle is to quit. Never, ever quit! Welcome to the Team!
