Have you explored Meetup groups? You might be able to find a few that center around meeting up for walks, hikes, or other activities, and meet some new friends in the process.

The point isn't that a serving of fruit and a five minute walk will cure all ills. The point is that you have turned your long term goal into a small, actionable goal.

A five minute walk and an apple are cheap and easily accessible for most people. The walk you might need some workout clothes for at some point, you'll need water and fuel, you'll need to find a safe walking route for yourself and the time to do it. For most people without mobility or medical issues this is a fairly easy goal to accomplish. Five minute walks with his walker were things that the nurses suggested my ninety plus grandfather do, and he had diabetes and heart and kidney issues. For people with certain medical and mobility issues, this might be enough of a stretch goal. If you get out on a five minute walk and think you have just barely started then you can go farther or faster. There isn't a five minute walk goal Police squad who will stop you. You can run, you can do thirty minutes every day, you could do thirty minutes every other day, you can set whatever small goal is appropriate for you. You could even decide while you are out on that first five minute walk that you'd rather swim and that's fine too.

But when people are overwhelmed or if there is a depression or something or other obligations lurking, a small goal that you can easily hit on a bad day is a great start. The idea isn't that you do five minutes forever, though it's perfectly fine if that happens to be where you are. The idea is to start at five minutes and build up from there. Getting started is the hardest part. Once you get started it's often much easier to keep going. Telling yourself you're going to go on an hour long walk and you'll be amazed how many things you can find to keep you from going out on that walk. The idea behind starting with five minutes is that it's so quick and easy that you can't not do it. I took most of the summer off of running and just as I came back had some health issues that kept me from putting my running shoes on. My usual short run for most of the past three years has been about five miles. Every time I tried to do a five miler after the health stuff it turned disastrous about a mile in. Sometimes I made it the full five with a lot of walking, most of the time I ended up cutting it short and beating myself up. That's when I decided that I needed to reset and restart and go out for a two to three mile run. Hit mile one and was feeling good so I kept going, mile two was good so I added in the longer loop that I was giving up, started cruising at mile three and finished out the five miles like I hadn't in months. Since cutting back my goal from five miles to two or three I have started consistently hitting five mile runs and at a pace up to five minutes faster a mile. You set your goal based on where you are and where is a little stretch but a low bar for you. A five minute walk is just what I am throwing out there as an example because most people can manage it. And if you aren't doing anything now it's five minutes more than you are able to manage doing it that way.

Setting a goal that you can hit gives you a great sense of accomplishment and motivates you to try your limits and to push out your goals a little farther. It's like making a little snowball and starting to nudge it down a slope, at least in cartoons (Native Floridian here, I don't actually understand snow). After a certain point it starts to take on momentum of it's own and will add to itself and keep going. That's what you want to do. You want to set one or two specific goals and work on those until they are second nature. It can take six weeks or so to get them in hand. Some might be faster, others might be slower, but go by what works for you. If you tend to get overwhelmed or if there are a lot of life moments that swamp you, have a fallback easy goal that you can make on the day you leave work late, get stuck in traffic, get called to the hospital for a friend or family member and return home to find that your power has been out all day and everything in your fridge has spoiled. Set a goal that is well within your reach and keep up with it. Nudge it up as you need to, just know that the more realistic it is for where you are now, the more you can hit it, which makes it easier to hit again and incorporate. Once you have gotten one goal to the point where it's part of your daily life and you don't have to focus on it so much anymore, you add in a new little goal. Keep starting goals, incorporating them into your life and moving on to a new goal once you have one pretty steady. You don't get bonus points for making your life as complicated as possible in the short term, so you don't have to turn your life entirely upside down this week. One or two things for the next month or so, then on to the next one or two things and so forth. Doing one or two things at a time really gives you the time and space to figure out what works for you. And if your goal is stupidly easy feel free to play around and see how much you can crush that goal by. That might be one of the goals that only lasts for a week or two. Others might take eight and a lot more effort. It depends on where you are starting from and where you ultimately want to go. But you want to build momentum by consistently hitting your goals.

Adding a serving of fruit to your day is pretty easy. After getting used to working it in you will want to take out an equal number of calories, ideally from something junkier, but in the short term it's one easy addition. You can also search out recipes for other easy additions, shelf stable or frozen options and even make a list of fruits to eat and fruits to avoid. After you get an extra fruit in, perhaps add an extra vegetable. Some people find a little window box is great to grow greens in, which become a cheap and easy source of an additional serving. Other people like cutting vegetables into pasta shapes. You give yourself an easy goal like add one serving in and you start to find whatever options work best for you in your life. As you're poking around and trying new things you might find a recipe that you like better than one of your staples, and by all means rotate it in more. But it's a lot easier to add in a serving a day or find one new meal a week than it is to find 21 new meals a week. Some people like writing recipes that work on index cards (and the ingredient list on the back so that it can be used as a grocery list) and laying out 21 cards for their weekly menu. Other people like using a calendar or planner to meal plan and then you can go back and reuse your work instead of reinventing the wheel every time you need a recipe. When you have a small goal to do one or two you can try out different ways of doing things to find out what works best for you. Setting up an index card system is a waste of work if you really like a monthly planner. So play around while you have the small goals until you get what's easiest for you. Then accommodate everything.

Bullet journaling is a great visual way to learn to manage things and flylady.net and habitica.com are two other resources. The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg is also a great book.

Personally I think that losing weight and losing weight and keeping it off are two very different goals. Most people can gut it out and lose weight, but find themselves where they started plus a few pounds within a few years. Losing weight and keeping it off seems to require finding things that are sustainable, they're easy and you genuinely like them and there isn't so much gutting it out. I grew up watching my aunts lose 50-100 lbs a year on every fad diet known to man. Knowing a way to take weight off isn't a long term solution if you goal is to lose weight and keep it off. There are very likely some valuable things that you learned in losing weight the last time, but that way also has some chaff that you need to cut to make it work for you. Pinpointing what that chaff is tends to be a trial and error, finicky sort of thing that requires some time.

Diet is the biggest part of weight loss and a healthy lifestyle but so is moving. I am physically able to workout so I need to do more than walking a few minutes a day or at a time. It's good for me physically and mentally. If I'm doing right with my food and exercise I feel like I'll keep pushing. I don't have kids or anything else that prevents me from doing this. I also have nothing that keeps me from the grocery story or meal/snack planning a few times a week. I did it years ago when I went from the 180's to 119...and I really enjoyed it, I had fun with it. Honestly, talking about it constantly here reminds me how easy it is to do and that it can be done. Granted I was early 20's but dang I haven't hit 30 just yet!

Carbs late at night have also been a huge issue with me. I also get bored with food very easily - even if it is food I like. That's why I have to make several trips to the grocery store and plan my meals a couple days at a time. I have to mix it up regularly.

Tracking and talking about it really helps me and I've been off here for so long I forgot how much. For me it isn't "this exercise or food isn't working". I really self sabotage. I have an elliptical at home and will soon have my treadmill, it is currently in storage. I also have Insanity and 30 Day Shred. I used to do Couch to 5K for running and really enjoyed it --- it got me from not running at all to running 3.1 miles several times a week. I used to LOVE doing 5K races. I have the tools to get moving to get my weight and health in line. I also have the personal experience that what I'm saying I need to do and together/at once works.

But back to the apples..apples are not a fruit I really enjoy eating. If I do eat them then I have to limit the caramel I add to it. I honestly don't want to eat sugar at night, I'd rather stick with vegetables. But if I do want something to curb the sweet tooth I need to go more towards strawberries, blue berries, grapes, etc. I'd really like to limit fruits for during the early part of the day.

When I get home tomorrow from work I plan to clean out the bad foods - make a grocery store trip and spend the evening prepping. I also plan to get a 30 minute workout in - probably elliptical.

I'm going to be trying out a third Hello Fresh recipe Monday too..it's so convenient but I just can't pay the regular price for a box (I used coupons). I guess I need to really become a recipe girl since I'm not creative in the kitchen.

My first Hello Fresh meal...



My second Hello Fresh meal...



I really appreciate all the feedback though!!

I only buy groceries once a week and get loads of fresh fruit/veges which lasts me a week I also have frozen on hand.

An apple and a 5 minute walk often WON'T cut it for a lot of people, but if you add some Greek Yoghurt or cheese or nuts to that apple, it just might.

You mention that when you are hungry you grab the easiest thing to grab. I strongly suggest that you not purchase the less wise 'easiest thing'. I love chocolate biscuits (cookies), especially ones with a mint cream inside them but on the very odd occasion I buy them I can quite easily eat, if not the whole packet, then almost the whole packet. This is the reason I very seldom buy them. If I don't have them on hand then I am not tempted. To overcome the chocolate issue, I have a healthy protein nut bar that has dark chocolate smear on the base. It is just over 150 calories. I will use this as a base for a lunch, including some apple and pear, when I am out, or as a late evening very early snack. It is a good source of healthy fats, fibre and protein, and helps with hunger. That is just an example of making healthier swaps. If I want something sweet to nibble on, then a dried date or fig does the trick. I use chopped dried dates as my sweetener when I have Rolled Oats (made in the microwave) or make a Rice Pudding.

I have no kids...I really have no excuse as to why I can't be better to myself. All the things I need to do are simple but I've managed to make them so difficult.

I had fun when I first got on here years ago. Went from the 180s to around 119 . That's why I know I can do this...that I can do all the things I need to do all at once.

I have all the time to make better choices, plan, workout, go to the store, cook. I know how to do it. I've done it. Motivation and self control are my biggest issues. Applying myself is what I must do. An apple and five minute walks aren't going to cut it. I really have to think instead of mindlessly pick up what's convenient.

If you don't know how to do something then you have to learn ho to do it. It's no different than learning to play the piano, how to rock climb, how to speak mandarin, going back to school to be an astrophysicist or becoming a ballet dancer. Motivation isn't like being hit on the head by a coconut because you are sitting under a coconut tree, it's about breaking down your goals into manageable pieces. You have this giant towering wall of things that you'd like to do which is overwhelming you from even trying to start. It's like deciding that you want to quit your job and become a Nobel winning Physicist/rockstar/ballerina/Master electrician. Each little piece of what you want is going to require significant time and effort. It will be a task just figuring out what you don't know. It's hard to start because what you want is basically an already established complex set of habits. A single habit can take six weeks to change. Pick one thing that's important (or easy) and work on that. Then pick a new one once that becomes old hat.

Want to go the the grocery store more frequently? What is your plan for buying things that you don't need? Which of your current activities are you going to cut short to accommodate these more frequent trips? What backups do you have if you can't make a planned grocery trip? When are you going to fit in more menu planning and checking your pantry and fridge for what you have before going to the store? Are you going to buy in season? How will this affect your budget for groceries and for gas?

If you need healthy options within grabbing range, making a list of options and then stocking them is one of the easiest things to do. Applesauce, fruit cups, dried fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, and jerky are all readily available and shelf stable. Putting a fruit bowl on your counter is another great trick. So is spending ten minutes prepping produce and leaving them in containers in the front of your fridge.

Don't look at everything and go "Argh, how can I do these four dozen things that I want to do all at once?" Pick a small, manageable task and do it. Running a marathon might seem like an insurmountable task to someone who has never run mile, but starts to seem a lot less overwhelming once you have ten half marathons under your belt. Remodeling your whole house at once is a nightmare as you are living in it, but changing the cabinets in the bathroom is doable. Don't expect to suddenly be able to do all these things at once. Make it your goal for today to be just a little bit better than yesterday and last week. One thing I always try and ask myself is "What can I do right now that will make tomorrow easier?" It might be laying out my clothes for tomorrow, doing the dishes, running the trash out, packing a day bag for the tasks I need to complete tomorrow, washing my car or spending ten minutes reading because I have a lot on my plate. But little bits like this add up.

Don't try to plan, increase your visits, move, track and think all at once. Perhaps start by tracking and maybe trying to walk five minutes a day. That is plenty on your plate to start. Once you have a bit of data you can plan to pick up an easy swap for one of your more offending foods. Start small and build from there. It's much easier to add a apple a day and walk for five minutes than it is to suddenly need an extra two hours a day for all the things that you want to do.

I know food is the biggest thing with weight but I also need to get moving. I feel like I can't do one without doing the other too. Sleep and planning I need to do too. Better decisions. Have to do it all!

Thank you for your thoughtful reply! No I haven't been to my doctor but I need to.

Going to the grocery store every couple days is about what I need to do for fruits and vegetables. I really need to get into cooking because I don't have anything that keeps me from doing it. What I'm lacking is motivation all the way around. When I'm hungry I give into the easiest thing to grab - I need to have healthy options that are quick to grab. Portion control also is where I struggle. I'm also not moving. But again, my motivation is nowhere and I don't know why. I am going to try to start getting more sleep too so hopefully everything will start coming together.

Planning I know is a huge key too. I know what I need to do but I just don't do it.

My goal is to start planning, more grocery store visits, get moving, tracking, and really thinking before I eat. Unfortunately I need to do this because the worst things for our bodies are the easiest to go to.

94 lbs over seven years is actually only eating 128 calories more than you need a day on average. Have you been to your doctor to rule out any medical conditions which may have an impact? If not then that should be step one.

Periodic hunger is part of a normally functioning body. You are supposed to eat throughout the day as you need it. The mistake that many people make is that they want to go scorched earth and cut their calories as low as they can go. It's usually okay for at least a few days (you're designed to be sick every now and then and be fine) and then all of the sudden your body revolts at not receiving enough fuel and you become Cookie Monster because you have just primed yourself to overeat. Eating 800 cals during the day and having a 200 cal dinner is nowhere near enough food more most people. Calories for your body are like gas for your car; you only get as far as the fuel you provide allows. We're not talking about limbo here, we're talking about fueling your body while creating a small deficit. 1400 cals a day means a slower loss, but it's something that's significantly more sustainable in the long term for most people, and the most important thing is your average over time.

Finding things that you like long term is key and it also means you aren't so reliant on this magical self control. People do things that give them the greatest benefit for their resources. If you are eating junk food all the time (medical issues having been ruled out), self control is just a vague term that doesn't identify any issue you can actually address. Yes, there might be a few times here and there where the ineffable self control rules, but most of what you do is habit and it's been built up by you as the best option given the situation and resources. Junk food is often perceived as being cheaper (a pound of potatoes might be a dollar, but chips are nearly four dollars for 8-10 oz), it's shelf stable and unlikely to spoil, it's easy to prepare (open and eat), it's tasty (do you honestly know anyone who would prefer celery sticks to a bag of chips?) and often easily portable. If you are cooking real, fresh food then you have to have recipes, they have to be recipes that you like, they have to be recipes that you have the cooking skills and hardware to cook, they have to be recipes that you have sufficient time to cook, you have to value the taste and benefits of said cooked meal over junk food, you have to be creative enough to come up with menu plans that balance familiarity with not getting bored, you have prioritize cooking time and cleaning time in your schedule, you have to monitor fresh ingredients for spoilage and have backup recipes to use items up, you may have to have enough play in your schedule to adjust the frequency of grocery trips to accommodate using up ingredients or replenishing used up ingredients, you have to be on top of your schedule enough with backup plans for when you are running late or there is an issue with Plan A, and this is also assuming that you're the only one whose preferences you have to accommodate. There is a lot of infrastructure required for things that often get dismissed as self control.

Reviewing the situations where you are making a choice that you know isn't the one you want to be making is a great thing. Beating yourself up over something that you can't change is pointless and only serves to create more issues around food. But you can look back and see where you can improve. Let's say you planned on making chicken for dinner, but came home, found the chicken smelled funny and so you popped a Hungry Man dinner into the microwave. What can you do about this? One option would be to build up a stock of better frozen meal options that you can choose from. Another option would be to periodically batch cook or make an extra serving to freeze as individual meals. You should also review your chicken shopping and storage habits and make sure that you are looking at your schedule and not buying more fresh food than you have the time to go through. I do not cook on Mondays as it is a little overbooked. So Sundays I usually make a soup or stew or bring one down from the freezer to thaw and be ready for Monday night. I like making quiche, which is a quick and easy breakfast or lunch for the first part of the week. I know my schedule doesn't permit from scratch all the time, so I shop and plan my menus accordingly. You don't stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables on Thursday if you are going away for a long weekend, you eke by with what you already have. This is one of the most difficult things to learn to balance.

Don't just say you have no self control, examine what's actually not working for you and then search out a solution to that problem. Yes, it's a difficult process.

I am feeling your pain. I am older than you, but I still want to get motivated AGAIN...I have been struggling for a couple of months after having several really good months. I was able to lose 15 pounds with the incentive of trying to lower my blood sugar. It was high at end of last year, but I was able to bring it to normal with diet and some exercise. Not highly motivated to exercise, but I do have gardening that keeps me busy. It was suggested that I get a fitbit and that is keeping me in line with my step goal, so thats something. But now the weather is changing and I am going to have to figure something out. Lets try to do it together!!

Hi - It is good that you are reaching out. I went to go to your SparkPage. Are you aware that it is set so that only friends can access it? You might find that you will get a lot more support if you edit it so that others can access it, too. Anyway, I have added you as a friend in case you don't want to change it.

It is quite likely that your evening eating habits are based on what you do or don't eat during the day i.e.

" I rarely eat healthy and I give into evening cravings on the regular. I'm always hungry in the evenings"

Try to eat more filling foods that are less processed. That act alone may help reduce your evening hunger. Make sure that you eat plenty of fruit/veges, too, because the fibre will fill you more, and so does lean protein and healthy fats, so consider a snack on a small handful of nuts as a good option.

Don't look on this as you have to do everything at once. You don't even have to do 'everything' ... just make some good changes. Just change one or two things and allow your mind/body to get used to that change before you add something else to the mix. It is a good way to trick your mind into thinking that that is how it has always been, so it really isn't hard to achieve.

I get the bulk of my exercise from putting my groceries and laundry away one at a time. It is far better than nothing, and it helps me to feel a little better about myself.

It took me 16 months to lose the first 50lb. The slow losses are the way to go. I happily sat at that weight for about another year, before deciding to move on down again. I have now been maintaining for a number of years. I STILL weigh all of my food for increased accuracy and enter it all into the Nutrition tracker. that ensures that I STAY at my goal weight.

Also, a lot of people tend to choose a low body weight as their ideal. For a lot of people it is NOT a good idea. My BMI is slightly in the overweight category, but my Dr is quite adamant that I not lose any more weight. He wants me to stay where I am. Mind you, as my daughter said, if I lost anymore weight, my already almost toothpick legs would become a lot thinner and it is doubtful they would hold me up LOL!

Good luck,

I'm at my highest weight and probably the unhappiest with myself that I've ever been.

My lowest I believe was 119 lbs (2011)...now I'm at 213 lbs. I rarely eat healthy and I give into evening cravings on the regular. I'm always hungry in the evenings :x

I know what to do and I've done it. I have zero self control :x

My motivation is also lacking - mentally and physically. I'm hoping to recharge and get a kick in the butt being back on here!!!

Message me - add me. I need friends and accountability - not being on social medial I really need the friends :D
