Looking to lose weight and get fit after gaining back 50 pounds of 80 lost.

It's amazing how fast life flies by. And, how fast weight can creep back on. I was so excited to lose 80 lbs on Weight Watchers and swore I was going to keep it off for life. Then, I made the mistake of letting life get in the way. Stress, family issues, and just plain laziness led to disregarding my personal goals and soon I just wasn't interested in following the healthy habits I had accepted. I stopped exercising, stopped jounaling my food, and stopped eating healthy. Now I'm 50 lbs overweight and ready to try again.

Update: 10/06/2008 Almost ninety days along in my healthier lifestyle journey. It hasn't been a pleasure cruise, but I'm enjoying the voyage none-the-less. I'm tracking my nutrition intake again, working out at least three days a week, and drinking my water (which I never could handle before). Another benefit is that I stopped drinking soda completely and I really don't miss it! Trying to be true to myself and stay commited. It's not always easy...especially when I get bored. But, I'm determined to get back to the healthy ME!!!

    Hope you are hanging in there? Are you still doing WW - I went back this year and it's been a Godsend to me. I keep going down and am getting perilously close to goal. I just have to be sure I don't sabotage myself with my success. emoticon
    It can be overwhelming at times. Keeping good thoughts for you.
