Thumbs down In need of a boost

Hey guys,

Well, like most of you (I'm sure) I fell off the wagon during the holidays and gained quite a bit. I know that I have to get back on track now that the holidays are over but my will power has left me. It was so string before. I was so determined and I hung in there for so long .... Where did it go? And how can I get it back? strangely enough, I feel completely lost.
I need some support. I would appreciate to hear from anyone.

I got motivated last night when I read information about being carb sensitive. The fact that I might get type 2 diabetes really put me in gear. Good luck girl, you can do it.

Well for me, my focus is on trying to live healthier every day. Weight loss is coming along slowly, but besides that I know I am eating better and feeling better overall. And today, I ran farther than I ever have in my life! To paraphrase Mozzy from another thread, the time will pass anyway and you can choose to get fitter or get fatter. Hang in there!

I know how you feel. It's hard for me to get back on track after the holidays. I'm patting myself on the back this year for not waiting until Summer time to get back on my diet, but the motivation for me is a weight loss challenge at work where money is involved. I don't know if you can get something like this going at church or work or there are even online groups. We change our challenges up, but everyone puts up a certain amount of money and then we go by percentage of body weight lost to make it fair. The easiest one we did was a goal of 5% and everyone who hit the 5% or surpassed it by the end of it (6 or 8 weeks I think) split the pot. That one was nice because you had a set goal and you could at least win your money back. Three out of eight made it to the 5% and we got to split the pot. It's really motivating for me. We also did a winner takes all right before Thanksgiving (I won!). The lengths of the challenges change, but so far it has always been $5 a week each. The current one is a 10-week challenge with first, second and third place.

Don't give up. When I think back to how uncomfortable I was at nearly 100 pounds heavier it motivates me to not give up and let that happen again because I really was miserable.

I wish I had some magical words of wisdom, but unfortunately you have to want it and work for it. It's not easy, that's for sure! I smoked for many, many years and it has been three years since I quit and that was waaaayyyy easier for me than losing weight. I guess my addiction to food is stronger. Good luck on your weight loss journey. You can do it!

I was on the Atkins diet from July 2011 to October 2012 and I lost 73 pounds. October 15, 2012 started WW's and got down to 255. Gained 25 pounds through the holidays, but got back on track June 2013. Got off track through the holidays again and gained back 10+ pounds

I will continue my journey to the end, no matter how long that takes.
