Your post made me so sad, SO sad, because I have done the same thing so many times. The hardest part is that when you have "failed" at a goal you have previously set for yourself, and you start to lose hope and doubt if it's even possible -- at least that is how it's been for me.

I wouldn't know from experience, but from reading here, it sounds like most of the people who have been successful at weight loss have had some kind of "a-ha" moment, hitting rock bottom, or whatever you want to call it. (I believe I have hit my "rock bottom" and I'm in the process of clawing my way back, but it's early and so I can't get too confident yet!) Maybe your trip to Texas was that for you!?! Maybe someday you'll be posting on here, "What started my successful weight loss journey was a horrible trip to Texas I took in 2010. I started then and have never looked back!"

Best of luck to you! I know how you are feeling!
