Unhappy new here and need encouragement

okay, i have started, again, to lose weight. this time feels different then the rest though. i am feeling frustrated since we came home from vacation and i can't seem to get back into the swing of things. i am a stay at home mom to a wild one and a half year old and he is just now getting over being sick. well i am sick now but i still want to lose weight and work out. its so much harder since we returned from vacation, though. i guess i just need to hear i can still do this and someone else has experienced this before. thanks shanta

Hello Shanta--- You can do it. You and I are about the same weight now an almost have similar goals. When I am not in school I am a stay at home mother and I know it can be extra hard when you stay at home with the kids. Yet, That is OK just be strong and follow the plan you are on and the weight will come off. Welcome and I am glad you are here.

Hi and Shanta,

I am sorry you are feeling a little discouraged now. Of course everybody has been in the same position as you, having had a holiday, or a birthday etc where we have allowed ourselves to go off track. Getting back on it can sometimes be like starting all over again. You just have to remind yourself why you want to lose the weight, and every time you fancy eating something you shouldn't, ask yourself is it really worth it? I am sure you will get back on track, you sound very determined

Hugs,

Ammi
