Ahem...Is This Thing On?

Hello,
My name is Amanda and I'm a former blogger.  The second I stopped being vigilant in my blogging and vigilant in my work outs and vigilant in my food, it all went downhill ridiculously fast.  I am ashamed to be back and posting my weight.  At my highest, I was 230 lbs.  At my lowest, I was 156.  Monday I weighed in at 199.5.  I'm catching this before I creep above that 200 line.  I'm nipping this in the bud.  I think this was the wake up call I needed.  Isn't that sad?  I can't even say definitively that this ridiculous backslide, erasing a whole year of hard work, is enough to get my ass in gear.  But I'm going to try.  I started Monday...eating right again.  Cutting the portions, cutting out the sugar, getting some activity in.  Next week, I'm back at the gym.  I'm on day 3 and going strong.  I'm ready.  I have to be.  I've got to get back before I become a complete and utter failure.  If anyone is still out there, I can use all the support I can get.  More to come...

It's a daily struggle. I'm with you, I was up 20, I've gotten 10 off and it's so hard to keep motivated. You can do it!!

I'm with you! I have fallen out of my healthy routines and I hate it. I want my groove back!
