Sadly, I was once an active member on this site and with the help of some very supportive people, I lost 70 pounds. I gained a little bit back, got pregnant, got divorced, moved across the country, moved across the country again, did a year of stressful competitive courses at the university I went to when I was much younger, and am now reaping what I sowed. I not only gained the weight I lost back, but added another 35 pounds to it. It's done. I've said it, and have outed myself. I'm through with the lose/gain cycle. I'm back and am not giving up until I hit my goal. Then I will maintain it and not fall back into bad habits.
Today is my first day of eating healthy, exercising, drinking enough water (and less soda) and taking a multivitamin. I will take it one day at a time and not beat myself up if the process isn't as fast as I'd like it to be. I've done this before and succeeded and I can do it again.
Thanks for reading if you got this far.
