I would love to be back to my weight in college...maybe I will when I lose my job and do nothing but exercise all day.

I've never been the type to wake up super early to work out. And at night....too tired to work out.

Be kind to yourself and walk, run, do what you love, when you can.

Thanks for all the advice.

1. You are entirely up to you. Make your body, make your life.
2. If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up!
3. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change.
4. The Dalai Lama: "One brings failure on oneself by working extremely hard at the beginning, attempting to do too much, and then giving it all up after a short time. A constant stream of moderate effort is needed."

You are not alone. I lost 80 pounds 10 years ago and regained 40 or it. It happens. I encourage you to take baby steps to get back on track, just like you did the first go around. You can do it.

I agree with what has been said so far. I would also suggest choosing a few things from this article to work on over the next few weeks as you get back into healthier habits: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_ar

Hi PRIVERA5!!

"Just say no" to feeling defeated to start with!! Ha! I know, easier said than done. The only true failure is if you stop trying. And don't forget, you caught it before it went to 50+ pounds of weight gain ...

In other words, try hard to look at the positives! You're aware and you're back to trying to live a healthier lifestyle.

You can do it!!! Good luck on your health journey!
