This is hard to write. I had so much success the first year that I never would have expected to be in this position.
I began WW back in April of 2009. I lost weight every single week, was completely motivated and never had a problem staying on plan. I had lost 70 lbs by February of 2010. Then...I met my boyfriend in March of 2010. We began dating and obviously it was a lot harder to stick to my plan when he wanted to take me out all of the time. I was lucky enough to be able to maintain my loss without gaining anything back. By January of this year I was living with my boyfriend and had pretty much stopped weighing in every week and was completely off the plan. I have been feeling so heavy and disgusted with myself recently so I decided to weigh myself. I have gained 15 lbs back! I am very disappointed in myself and wonder how I let myself go so far backwards when I worked so hard to get to where I was. I am sad, but also glad that I weighed in. I feel like the gain will definitely be my new motivation to really stick to my plan.
I have been trying to remember that it isn't the gain thats important, but the fact that I am still down 55 lbs from when I began. At times it is extremely difficult to do that. I am hoping someone will have some words of encouragment or wisdom that they might share.
Thanks in advance!
