My heaviest weight was around 290. I am now at 239. I would like to get to around 135. Sometimes I feel like it will never happen. I try so hard and then I get off track because of something in my life that comes up and have to keep climbing back on. When I do get off track its usually only for a few days and I never gain back more than 2 or 3 lbs. But I feel like I will never get to my goal. Yes, I know I didn't gain it overnight but I have been trying off and on for 1 year now and nowhere close to where I thought I would be. How do I stay motivated and stay on track when there is always something coming up that involves food or little to no time to exercise? Help, I am so depressed right now.Answer Question

Losing that much weight is definitely a marathon, not a spring. Slow and steady wins the race. If you've lost 50 pounds in a year by trying "on and off" (your words), then that's pretty good progress! Keep it up, keep setting new goals, and don't give up even if you get temporarily off track. This is a new LIFESTYLE you're creating, not just a fast drop-the-weight-quick effort.
