This journey is 95% mental and 5% exercise and nutrition. Figure out the reasons that you gained weight, work on dealing with emotions/stress, keep finding new ways to stay motivated, and take care of YOU!
Journaling, talking to a friend, exercise, and really spending time with myself have helped me to keep my mentality in the right place.
My husband likes the saying if Momma aint happy aint no one happy. It is important to have me time. I plan time for myself every day to ensure I get my exercise in. If I take time for myself I have more to give to others in my role as mom,etc
My level of stress is managable this way and I am so much more pleasant to be around.
