Default I'd never have to start over if I'd never stop!

I hate that "here we go again" feeling. I need to change my mindset, but it's what I'm thinking at the moment. My username title says Fit by Forty. I selected that a couple years ago. I'm down to the home stretch and it's now or never.

So, I'm back. I know that the way to do it is to be motivated and to gain support! I am going to try to check in often and find the support I need. I was on MFP in the past, but just downloaded the LoseIt app and will see if a new shiny app will help me refocus. PM me if you're on LoseIt and we'll try to connect on there as well. Friends make all the difference.

8 months and 2 days until the big 4-0. I've GOT to do this.

Back in August 2013, I convinced myself to give my plan a shot until October 31, 2013. I told myself then that, when that date came, I would be grateful I had committed myself to losing weight. Sure enough, when October 31, 2013 came, I was deeply grateful and pleased with my progress. It's been 19 months and over 115 lbs lost, and I remain deeply grateful every day. There are no words to explain how worth it the hard work is.
Reached onederland 31.12.2013!
Became 'overweight' (BMI of 29.7) on July 29, 2014!

Changing your definition might help. Sometimes cutting calories too low can result in hormone deficiencies which will make you so hungry....your body doesn't want you to lose weight. So you are fighting against homeostasis. Slow and steady and expect set backs. Good luck!

Oh Kristen! That image was exactly what I needed. Thank you! It's now hanging on my computer monitor at work.

Awesome image! Thank you, that's just what I need too and exactly how I lose. Down a couple. Up one. Repeat. But I can't complain I just realized I've lost 21 since I started on July 7th. That's pretty fast compared to how I usually lose. But I am exercising for the first time in about 25 years. My family can't believe it. Neither can I.
