Lightbulb Getting back on track

This week I decided that giving up is not an option for me, so I'm here on the board trying to reconnect with this great community. So, what's my story? Well, like many, I was larger than average for most of my life, but I was not fat per se. I was even a college athlete, throwing the shot put and discuss. We throwers tend to be bigger folks but are still in shape.

After college, I went to grad school and really packed on the pounds and went from a little overweight to obese. My weight has fluctuated over the years, but now I've been significantly over 300 lbs for the last 4 years and I'm sick of it. So, last year I started one of the packaged meal programs (medifast) and it worked, but I stopped following it because I lost track of the reason why I started in the first place.

Recently, I've been refocusing on myself and doing some deep thinking about what my WHY is for wanting to lose the weight. I'm in my early 30s and while I have my health now, it won't be around forever if I don't change. I realize that on some days I'm just not going to feel like staying on my plan and I need to have something to center me. I'm working on finding that. I've restarted medifast because it works for me. I am already seeing results this week, but I do need support, so I'm back here on the forum because you all really understand the struggle of what it's like to live over 300 lbs.
