I fine myself starting over again a few times, like now. I keep getting off track & heading into my old habits. I catch myself before it's to late.

ya know...sometime life just happens and we find ourselves "starting over" again. The fact that you choose to "start over" is a step in the right direction. Really it is. You could just quit---and that will get you nowhere. Baby steps are a huge key. I like the idea about setting a small personal challenge to be reached daily. Great idea. You'll be amazed how quickly the small challenge becomes big. Hang in there. You can do this. We have all had to start over numerous time...but just think maybe this time is the "one" to push you to your goals. Keep perusing the site. We are hear to help.

When I first started I did a wall pushup challenge and did a wall push up every time I went to the bathroom. It only takes a second but it built my confidence. I moved on to a 3 minute timer for exercise and tried it a couple times a day. It was a good challenge for me and got me headed in the right direction. Instead of beating myself up for nothing I could then strive for better then next day. The same idea works with water and veggies. It is much better to succeed at something very small than always beat myself up for failing on the big things. Best wishes. Chris

Yeah, I hear you sister. Without exercise I'm fatigued too and my eating plan has gone out the window. Tomorrow I am starting with baby steps for the week, small mini goals that I know that I can achieve (15 minutes, approximately one mile walk) and simple meals that won't be hard to cook but will keep me in my calorie range, plus my water. Plan, Plan, Plan. That is about all you can do. If a mile is too much then walk around the block, what ever you can to get your blood pumping and that will help with controlling your appetite, at least it had worked for me.

Ugh,I don't know what my problem is. I just can't seem to stick to a healthy eating plan. I never eat the "right amount" too little or too much :(

My excercise is non existent, I'm so fatigued.
