Default Starting Over

Hi guys. So I dusted off this account... have been a member since 2009. Back then, I went from 216 lbs to 140. Somehow in these past 6 years, life happened. Gained everything and then some back.

Honestly, I don't even know if I have the motivation to start the long road back to being healthy. Right now, I feel FAT, TIRED, and OVERWHELMED. Ugly words, but honest. But I'm going to try.

Don't worry about motivation right now. Just focus on your next choice. Every choice is a new opportunity to choose health.

Don't feel bad about the regain. Happens to lots of us.

This is my second time around with weight loss. Originally lost from 220 down to 155. Learn from my mistakes and don't relapse! LOL

Hi guys, I'm new to this site. Not new to the struggles of losing weight. I lost 74lbs in the past and life happened to me, too. Now I'm trying to find the motivation to start over and felt like I could relate to the starting over. I'm actively working on a food and fitness plan. I'm hoping this site can help keep me accountable because that's what I have the most trouble with. I'm still trying to figure out how to do all these avatars and stats. Bear with me. We all have to start somewhere, right? What better time than now. I'm tired of being tired.

Hey guys,
New to this site too. Figured I need all the help I can get. Like many of you I have lost weight and gained it back multiple times. Doesn't help that I am the only fat one out of all my friends! Why did I miss out on those skinny asian genes!.....actually truth be told I believe it is a myth. Those girls just eat when we go out. When they are by themselves they don't eat anything.....anyways, I digress.

So here is to starting over! For the last time!!!.....again!....

Putting it out there that I need to get rid of 40lbs.
I am going to the gym 3x this week. Only eating out once for the rest of the week.
