I am BAAAACK!

so, after a yearly hiatus when i have TOTALLY failed --and i mean totally--I am back.
the failure of the last year was--too many darn things to worry about. We moved from the city to a DEEEP suburbia. we bought a house. i changed jobs. endless circuit of all kinds of things, stress, adjustment, whatever. I didn't care for a waistline and guess what--i piled on 10-15 more pounds. So now i have a privilege of weighing as much as my 6'4 husband did when we met, which is frigging RIDICULOUS considering that i'm 5'5. I did think that eventually i'll have to deal with that, so my hubs and I made sure that our house had a gym area, complete with a good quality treadmill, nice used bowflex and -ta-dah-best thing ever, overhead projector hooked up to the laptop, so we can watch dvd's, hulu, netflix, whatever.
so, about 5 weeks ago I went on a conference with a good girlfriend of mine, looking my oblivious fat self. She took one look at me and dragged me by my sleeve into the gym. For 5 days in a row I was on that elliptical, doing 45 minutes of walking till i was soaked through. and guess what--I haven't stopped. In the last 5 weeks i've not worked out for a total of 2 days. I am sore all over, currently from having done Crunch Yoga/Pilates workout that i couldn't even complete and cried my eyes out yesterday, and my left knee is busted and hurting, and i'm limping today. I've done step aerobics, zumba, dancing like crazy all this month and lots of treadmill stuff. I haven't curbed my eating habits until this week, and I haven't lost a pound, but people start telling me that i'm starting to look more toned.
So, with open heart, I ask that you guys welcome me into your fold. I am going to try to keep sparking for continuous inspiration 'cause u know, living as a 250 lb tubby who can't breathe and run up a flight of stairs without palpitations is no life...at this point this is surely not the matter of looking good. it's the matter of not wanting to feel sick all the time....
any sort of emotional support is welcome!!!!!
