we've all struggled a time or two and just keep in mind you don't ahave one or two people cheering you on you have a whole team!!! Keep in mind even if it's one pound you lose...it's progress, don't get to hooked on rushing it.. We're all here for you cheering you on!!!
Have you tried rewarding yourself. I set small weekly goals, such as drinking 10 cups of water, eating 3 healthy meals a day, and exercising at least 3x a week. If I stick to my goals for the week, I reward myself. Nothing big, maybe a pair of earrings, a new body spray etc, Just gives you something to look forward to.

It sucks not going anywhere but don't give up on starting over. You will mess up but forgive yourself and never stop trying to get it right. It is not easty..I know, I have been trying to get my eating habits right since I started here back in April 2012. Try being in touch with how you feel. Eating healthy, exercise makes you feel better, even accomplished. Streaks have helped me and I find starting small like being healthy one day a week until the habit the develops and then improve afterwards. Hope that helps.
Live choice by choice....make the best choice you can and MOVE ON!!!
I can and that is all that matters!!!

Hang in there. Remember you didn't gain it overnight, you're not going to lose it overnight. I know easier said than done. You just have to keep pushing and take baby steps. Trust in the Lord and He will give you strength. Prayers and hugs.

I'd love to try and be support to you. I have been on this weight roller coaster a long time but since I found sparkpeople I am committed to being healthy and want to help others as well. I added you as a friend
Seriously. I know it's been only a few days since I started back up on here, but even when I try to motivate myself with quotes, pictures, etc. I feel like I'm not getting anywhere. I don't feel like I'm changing any bad habits. I know it takes something like a month to form a habit and that I've a long way to go, but I don't want to stop halfway and realize it five months later.
I guess what I'm asking for is some encouragement and perhaps a weight loss buddy to check in. I know it's a lot to ask for, but doing this by myself is impossible because of the way I am. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance.
