You did it before you can do it again! I had a miscarriage recently which sent me doqn to a very dark hole and since have very quickly gained 55lbs in which I hope to loose very soon.

I think its all about being mentally happy, persistent. Never give up!

Keep a bottle of water with you. Pack healthy food to munch on so wont eat when get home. Get rid of the junk in your home, only have healthy food and foods you have to cook and prepare as you dont juat grab, eat, sit.

Good luck will be working hard with you!

Ok the First thing you need to do is STOP SKIPPING MEALS! Your body goes into to starvation mode and holds on to everything. Try to find a friend in your area, and workout together. 

January first of this year i weighed 201 pounds. Right now i weigh 189.9 This is not my goal weight but it’s a start. I have been going to zumba. Recently i started going 4 days a week. I eat small healthy meals all day. I do a lot of meal prep on the weekends. So that on the weekdays I can just grab a bundle and  go. I drink tons of water. 

Try to find something fun to do. Get a routine going with friend. keep a log of what you’re eatting and you exersize.

You can do it!!!

UKbee:  You can do it!!! Set yourself realistic & managable goals, like going to the gym 2 – 3 times a week…. if some days you can’t go after work, maybe do a morning workout? a quick run? some yoga? 

definitly pack healthy snacks for work so that you don’t get tempted by the vending machines. 

plan activities with your friends / FI… like a weekend hike, a bike tour etc. <br /><br />all the best!

UKbee:  I was having similar issues with depression/drinking/eating for comfort, and I finally went to the doctor to get on meds for the depression. It made a WORLD of difference 🙂 

If you’re already on something, it might pay off to make an appointment to see if they think it should be adjusted 🙂

I always knew what to do as far as eating right/exercising, but until I got my mind on board, all of the knowledge was useless.

Good luck!
