I joined SP over 4 years ago when my weight was 116lbs. I just wanted to look better naked and get rid of a little belly. It did not work, because I traveled a lot and did not have internet access in most of the places I had lived in.
So after idling for almost a year and when going for a job interview I could not zip up my only pair of dress pants I decided it was time. i joined a local gym and quit after a month. It just did not work for me. Then I got a pair of 10 lbs dumbbells and started working out at home three or four times per week. And I also started walking home from work which took about 3 hours, but I had some time to spare. In 3 month I was 110, toned like never before.
After moving back to the US i joined a real gym and was working out my regular 3 times per week, but I stopped doing a lot of cardio, because I really wanted to gain muscle. So I put on 12 lbs of pure muscle and looked my best. i was not just a skinny model-like girl I was a hot looking woman.
But then something happened. I stopped working out in the winter, because i am just never active when it is cold out. So now 8 month later I am 130lbs and all my muscles dessapeared under my belly fat and I can not stop eating junk.
I feel worst and worst every day. The way i look makes me moody. And the moodier I am the more I eat. I can't get out of this vicious circle.
I guess I need help.

    Believe it or not, that happens to many of us, even the hard-core SparkPeople users. The important thing is to try your best every day. Forget about yesterday or last week. The best thing you can do is to not compare yourself now to what you were at your best. That can be discouraging. Just keep tracking your efforts religiously and make slightly better choices based on the information you are gathering.

    I also suggest you get a training buddy (either here or in real life); someone that you can be accountable to. Email or talk with that person everyday until things begin to go better, then keep it up until you feel you don't need so much help. At the same time, try to find someone to help (it could be the same person or someone else). When you help someone else achieve their goals you help yourself along the way.

    For what is worth, I am proud of you. Keep up your efforts; it is so worth it!
