I've been up and down with weight gain & loss & eating healthy and sticking with it. For the past 4 years or so its been such a ride for me with my weight- I went down to my lowest in recent years which was summer 2013 to 174 lbs. So here I am again at this journey hoping to make this forever change. I started my pregnancy around 200 lbs and gained 65 lbs- giving birth end of July 2015- I made my resolution for the New Year and I am back it again trying to drop this pregnancy weight, be healthy, and be physical, mentally and emotionally stronger than I've ever been.

MY STATS: 5ft, 8inches (29yrs old)

*1st started my diet 6/4/12 @ 228 lbs

*started back 5/13/13 @ 205 lbs
July/Aug 2013 @ 174-180 lbs
*Feb 28th 2014 198 lbs

Help! Need Motivation!!
wow I'm in the same situation I've lost 40lbs and do not have the same motivation and mentally as I did when I started a few months ago. I'm glad to see that it isn't just me that is having a struggle and that there are people that can help and encourage. I do not know what it is I'm feeling I feel great and look great and everyone tells me so, and it should encourage me to loose the rest (30lbs) but its making me feel comfortable where I am and slack off BIG TIME!! We need to get back on track!!!

back track!
This weekend was a little bit rough for me. I far exceeded my calorie intake and not with greasy/fried portions or heavy heavy meals I just took in way too many calories. I did not even record my entries because I was upset. From going back on the scale this morning I realized that 1.) I gained weight 2.) the food was not worth it- I didnt even eat food I was craving 3.) its just not worth it. It hit me like a ton of bricks I've been on a steady decrease and been feeling good now that this weekend is over I am preparing myself to be back on track and be better than ever!! I need to loose the rest of the weight-

I'm feeling good!!
So today marks 2 months of my diet/lifestyle change. I've lost 33 lbs and everyone is noticing and it feels GREAT!! I meet up with friends and they were amazed how I look-everyone tells me "wow you lost so much weight" I feel good when they say that- I still have 40 more pounds to loose which was confirmed by my doctor to have a BMI of 24 and which fit with my age/height. I feel great, just wanted to share with everyone!! Hope everyone is doing well too- and remember don't give up no matter how long it takes. I've sent a goal to lose the rest of my weight by Christmas. For 2013 I hope to see a new me!!!
