Try try again.
I was doing really well 4 years ago. Life beat me down again and I gave up. I have finally got life back on a better track so now I have to start over again. I think I learned from it though. So maybe this time will be different.
1) I was stuck on a plateau after having lost around 40 pounds. I still had a to to lose to get to my goal and I was continually obsessing about everything I was going to eat all of the time. It was mentally exhausting. I never really took a moment to appreciate and enjoy the success I had to that point. Now when I think back and look at the one nice pic I have from then remember how much better my clothes fit and how good I felt and I would love to be back there in that place even stuck compared to where I am now.
2) I had a good long talk with my Dr about my weight and concerns. I didn't wait for her to give me "the humiliating lecture" I brought it up and let her know that I really do want to lose. We checked everyth8ing that can be checked health wise and she can't find a thing wrong with me. My Fitbit stats show that I am a long way from sedentary. I don't really eat that unhealthy. I am lucky to have found a wonderful supportive Dr and her thought was that I needed to focus on finding the point where I feel good in my body.
So I am not going to focus quite so hard on getting back to that weight I was when I was 20 and focus on just getting back to feeling good in my body and my clothes. What size I wear and what other people think should never be the reason to change your body in any fashion.
I wish everyone above luck in finding that on their own journey.
