Ok, so this is my second go at losing and KEEPING this extra weight off! Last year I lost weight healthily and got down to my goal weight/size, but THIS year, I've been lacking motivation to work out and eat healthily...Well, what's really been going on is a LOT of emotional binge eating.

My mom had a brain aneurysm that ruptured in April of this year, and she nearly died..When that happened, I started eating myself sick to deal with the stress and anxiety...My mom is doing GREAT and recovering slowly, so there's good news! Yay! emoticon

It's just lately I've been feeling like a complete failure at maintaining my weight, and I'm sick of feeling like I've done all of this work for nothing..just to end up where I started last year..So, I'm starting over for the second time, and hopefully, I'll be able to get this emotional eating under control so that I can feel comfortable/confident like I did last year. emoticon

    I wouldn't called you a big Failure. You know how you gained your weight and you know how to take it off because you have done it before. You need to learned how to be kind to yourself. Need to learned that this is a lifetime change not a diet and that you are going to have ups and down on just like people who have to control smoking, alcohol and etc.. Everyday we have to work at it.

    Honey, Is understandable about gaining some weight you and your family sufferer some traumatic experience with your mother. So now that your mother is getting better Thanks Jehovah. You can start working on yourself now. Remember you are only human and humans make mistakes. emoticon emoticon KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB!! emoticon REMEMBER I AM HERE IF YOU NEED ME. emoticon

    I feel like I could have typed this myself, although my mom did not have the struggles as your mom did, our family had a lot of life changing events. I also was in such good shape 8 months ago that my boot camp instructor had to keep up with me sometimes. I felt amazing and had never been in better shape. Then the last 8 months the stress of not working and moving across the country twice has helped me binge eat my way to gaining 15lbs and feel disgusted with myself. Now its hard to get re-motivated. I want so badly to feel like I did 8 months ago. I hope you hang in there, just try to remember the feeling that you had when you last felt amazing......your story will help me get thru my day (hopefully binge free)knowing that I'm not alone. Thanks for sharing

    You're not a big failure Kim. We all have set backs from time to time. Just push all of those negative thoughts out of your head. You were successful at losing the weight before, so YOU CAN DO IT again! emoticon
