health & physical endurance issues have been the best& strongest motivator yet to overcome my eating problem.
hopefully it keeps you going.

Hello there

My best advice is the oft quoted Japanese proverb:

Fall down 8 times, get up 9.
Or in my case, fall down more times than I can count but never stay down for the count.

I just posted the same advice lol I'm a broken record - but my advice has always been to work on the WHY instead of the pounds. WHY we gain weight, WHY it's only coping mechanism, WHY it's comforting etc., work on that and the weight will take care of itself. If you neglect the why, you can lose a ton but most likely it'll come back around some day

Started: 323
Now: 171 - nope, 165 now!
NOPE -- 162 now! Holy crap i've lost a PERSON!
Goal: 160

Trazey, you are so right! I lost 93lbs 4 years ago...and never answered the WHY! Gained it back and more. Tackling it again for one last time. Weightloss is more MENTAL than PHYSICAL!

Now I can list my reasons of how I got here...

2010: Start 1/18/10 264lbs, lost 92.4 by 9/27/10 (171.6lbs)
2011: Got married, gained most of it back
2012: Birth of my son, gained the rest back plus 30lbs over the next 2 years
My new start date is 12/29/14...and I'll keep up this lifestyle forever, so my son will never know an obese mother and he will make healthy choices too.

Welcome!!! While I do not have 100 lbs to lose this time, I wanted to offer some advice. I kinda belong here anyway, because over the years I have lost at least 100 lbs. The best advice is to keep going no matter what. No matter what the scale says, no matter what someone says to you, no matter how you feel, no matter what you slipped up and ate, and especially when you get the weight off-KEEP GOING!!!! It is a forever thing. I know, because all the times I lost weight, I thought I was done. Well, guess what? I'm right back here again. And now I have to listen to my own advice, because the last month has not been very rewarding. But I am going, and going, and going, until the weight is gone!!!!!
