Sad I don't want to give up !!!!!! Since the last time I've been recording my food intake, I've probably gained 10 pounds.....I certainly feel it.
I've gotten so lazy and then maybe it's cabin fever after all. Whatever...I do appreciate this website so much.

Then don't give up. Go do what you're supposed to do instead. Find your motivation, do what you know works, and do it. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

You can do this!! Once you get back to it you'll start feeling better and it will get easier to stick with it. I do the best when the weather warms up because I'm more active outside, I get the cabin fever too. Good luck!!
Goals for 2015:

Wow you guys........thanks! I'd never posted before and you guys are making more encouraged to do this. I had lost some 45 pounds 11 years ago, but I got comfortable or something, and now am dealing with all this weight. I'm also encouraged because a friend of mine ended up losing a foot due to diabetes. I don't want to have to be a burden to anyone. Thank you ....thank you...thank you all.
