I used to be in this group last year when I was set out on my weight loss journey. I lost 22 pounds just by tracking calories and working out in my living room. I used a pedometer and made sure I reached a certain step amount every day. 

Then we moved to a different state, and away from everyone. All my life changes I made (and was so proud of) went downhill. I was feeling so much energy before and wanted to get up and out. Today, I HAVE to take a 5 hour energy just to do laundry and dishes. I dont have motivation for anything and just want to watch tv all day and eat. When I started in the beginning I weighed 222, then went to 200 even, and now I am at 217. I gained 17 pounds back!!! :( No wonder I am dealing with depression. 


BUT TODAY is different. Yesterday my husband (who is also a big guy) and I joined 24 hour fitness. We went in for a tour and then were suckered into joining, lol. I guess I am thinking skinny thoughts. I am so pumped now. I want this weight GONE!

I need all the motivation and support I can get. 

Today I am at 217 and my goal weight is 130. 

Now off to get my breakfast and get ready for the gym!

I had the same problem, sorta... moving was one thing and then a bunch of other occurences got in my way. I started this year at 200 and just restarted my "diet" in April and I am down to 189 :) You can do this!

Welcome back
