When I stop counting calories the weight starts to creep up again. I always thing "oh well I already know many calories are in this" and then I start eyeballing but apparently I've got huge eyeballs lol. I've been back to calorie counting recently and everything is back on track again. Someone on this forum recently said "abs are made in the kitchen" and it's soooooo true!
One for every five pounds lost!

I know how you feel...For years I have gotten more and more out of shape. It's a vicious cycle, I wake up sore and tired, usually running late, work all day, sit down when I get home, and that's it until bed. lol
The past couple days I have been trying to make myself get on the treadmill after I get home, but before I sit down because I know I never have the energy to get going again later.
I got a fitbit and found that using it and trying to create a calorie deficit was motivating to me. When I first started I often didn't want to do anything but I really forced myself to go walking (I am lucky that my husband was willing to go with me). The first time I didn't walk far but I made it up to walking for a full hour. I found that unless I was actually sick that if I was tired once I got into the walk about 10 minutes I would sort of rebound and come home energized. It was the first 10 minutes that were tough and I would often want to quit.
