Hey everyone! It's been a while since I posted on here, but I need a bit of support. I was down from 306 to 184, and now I'm back up to 189. I know it's only five pounds...and that's not the issue. I've lost 120+ lbs...what's another five, right?
Well, after working so hard to build a routine and lifestyle where I was steadily losing weight, I realize I'm at a point now where I'm steadily overeating. Seems my appetite is insatiable, and I have no way to correct that right now.
I think the biggest factors are:
- My relationship, or lack thereof
- Stress of work and not having enough down time
- Wanting to lose weight and stalling in general
- Loving food far too much (who doesn't, right?)
- I stopped going to the gym regularly
So, with that in mind, I need to get back on track. What are some of the biggest things you do to correct things when you stray a bit?
I've recently started drinking energy drinks again (sugar, empty calories), and I have a tendency to eat way too much junk food like chips. I think I'm going to start there by fixing my diet (getting more protein and other good nutrients), and get back to the gym three days on and one day off.
What else can you guys recommend?
