Oh we can be our own worst enemies. I have foiled many attempts to lose/re-lose with beating myself up. Even simple attempts at workouts... riding a bike, for example, I would angst over all the miles I used to be able to ride, how discouraging it was that a block would send me huffing and puffing now. So on and so forth, so many times. It was so much wasted energy. We have no control over changing those things we regret, but we can change where we are 4 months, or 4 years from now.

I think it's wonderful that you are here, and that you are not giving up. That is a very positive thing. It's entirely too easy to get lost in the funk and lose sight of the bigger picture.
