Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Keeping myself motivated, which I find hard while doing it alone.

Following any specific plan: Currently researching and trying different methods than I have tried in the past. Hoping by joining an online support group I will get over the hurdle of continued motivation.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm reaching out to strangers for advice/support.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Three years ago I was able to lose 60 lbs. I was 20 lbs from my goal weight when I lost my job to cutbacks and had to move back home. I was devastated and went back to my original weight (plus a pound) in a years time. I am still trying to pick up the pieces and although I don't have control over other aspects of my circumstances, I do have control over my weight/health and am ready to do something about it.

Default My 40Something Bios Weight Loss Goal

1Bluerose68

age: 40 something

height 5'9

current weight(too much) 208

Weight loss goal: - 50 lbs( and keep it off), -5 lbs @ a time.......
Ultimate weight loss goal? To weigh 145-150.(perfect for my height and weight on Met Charts for women my age).

How will this weight loss plan be different?
I am exercising at least 5 x per week, not relying so much on aquatics, as I have become afraid of too much sun exposure.

So I have a better routine for exercising, in that now I go right after dinner, as I am Not a morning exerciser.

Do to all my years competitive swimming, now that I don't have to awaken @ 5AM to eat and swim, I am a bit lax in the morning, and that's totally OK too.

It feels good to not be so driven in the morning, to work my heart out, and not even close to the Olympic or National time level, so I must be real to myself.

Thats not my gung ho thing anymore. But, I didn't Totally give up on Any exercise, or eating right. And drinking ice water ALL day long is my other secret to not binging during the day.

I am eating more salad and veggies daily too.

When you re-gained the 60 lbs did you find that by ,"Moving back" that you may have been faced with some of the issues from the past that led to your original problem with weight gain?

I noticed that for me, it wasn't necessarily the place that I moved back to, but the weight gain was from issues that were encountered, more from age, and situational things that I had " 0" control over.

I suppose I had control over gaining the weight. For me, losing it took so much more effort than letting go of my exercise routines, meal planning, hydrating(not soda either), and making sure I had fiber always in my diet too. And talk therapy, for 3 yrs straight, helped me while gaining control over past hang ups, and the current weight gain/loss issues too.....
