Don't give up, even if you aren't perfectly following the plan. Do the best you can to stay focused until you get a breather. Then see if you can create a plan for the next time you get this particular curve ball, ie how to feed the kids when hubs is away, or how/what to eat in those fast food places. Don't beat yourself up for not being perfect, just dust yourself off and go forward.

If you've awakened fast food cravings, it helps to know they'll go away once you stop eating them. Remind yourself of your goals each day--even better in writing-- and celebrate the great progress you've already made.

Mindfulness exercises help too--just taking a moment here and there throughout the day to check in with yourself, notice your breathing. Sometimes I do this when in the bathroom stall during a crazy hectic work day. It's subtle but if you practice doing it regularly, you'll notice a benefit.

Don't give up. Take some time to prep some fresh vegetables so making salads can be quick and easy. Make sure you have the foods you need in the house and pack your lunch for work so you won't be as tempted to turn to fast food.

I'm at a low-point, too, but I'm trying very hard to focus on my goals and not give in to emotional eating. I'm not sure if the WW application provides online journaling but you can start a blog here on 3FC where you can "talk" out your feelings and cravings and focus on the goals that motivate you most.

Hi Pamela, I need motivation too! I lost 35 pounds a couple years ago, gained back about 15-20 pounds last year, and thought I was on a good track this year. But I am regaining again instead of losing. I'm actually encouraged to know I am not the only one with challenges. What can we say to encourage each other? I know I feel a lot better about myself when I stay on track! This time I really want to be a maintainer!

Write down your goals and read them every day! I find that helps a lot. Keep your goals in front of you. When you start to eat better and exercise more regularly, you will find yourself feeling more optimistic about the changes you're making. Having a bright outlook keeps you motivated and moving forward- and inspires you to make more positive decisions. Get your family in on living a healthier lifestyle too. It's really important to surround yourself around people who are living the lifestyle you are after. For now, get that support by joining groups, meetup.com is a great resource for meeting people who have similar interests. And of course, this forum is great for support.
