Getting back on the horse is a daily thing for me. It is really tough sometimes. I am just back on the weight loss journey again after gaining a bunch of weight while sitting around depressed. Now I still have to work at the chronic depression but feel cruddy about myself and the way I look. I wish DH would be more sensitive to my feelings and need to lose this weight.

There will be days I don't know if I can do a marathon. There will be a lifetime of knowing that I have.

Hi Everyone and Deb,
I'm back and need to lose 43 lbs. I set a short term goal for 21 lbs. by April 22. I know what I'm suppose to do, but haven't been doing it. I've been going to the gym... and skipping meals, and eating fried foods, and too much of it. I have a lot of major life changes going on in my life, things i am powerless over. I can control what I put in my mouth and how much exercise I get. So here's to a fresh start, and new beginnings for me.

To Thine Own Self Be True

I'm just getting back too. I've gained 35 lbs and feel like a beached whale. I'v had some issues with my fibro flaring. They changed up my meds and I'm feeling like I can get back into the groove of working out. I just have to remember to take it easy as I go. I've printed out my meal planner for the week and will be shopping tomorrow, and cooking for the week. Good luck to you. Zumba sounds fun. I'll have to look for a video

Thanks Beb.. yep I love it alright, it's an amazing class. High energy, and even though I may have 2 left feet, I know that as long as I'm going I'll pick up the steps eventually :) I appreciate your encouragment !

Mommasport, so sorry about your difficult divorce. I hope everything works out for you I really do. My daughter has just gone through hers, and my goodness, it was a rough time for her as well. You have my support anytime :)

Yes you will this horse will go the distance! Zumba will get it going!

It isn't about how many times you fall, it is how many times you get up.

Take each day at a time .... Forgive yourself!!

I'm pulling for you !

My ex boyfriend and I may get back together...it's complicated.., But I was thin and svelte last time we saw each other!
I want to feel more comfortable ... so 30 pounds would be tolerable..
I can't do it without working out everyday ! I need to focus on each 3 pounds!



So that is some motivation... I need support too ... many months of a difficult divorce !

Hi everyone :) I'm back with a need to lose the weight I gained back. I gained 30 lbs due some stressful life changes. With support and staying power I can overcome the weight once again; but I know I can't do this alone. I'm not familiar with some of the page setups etc...so I hope I posted on the right page ... :)
