starting again for the 486th time

I have been down this road so many times trying to lose the weight and keep it off. A year and a half ago I was down to about 164 and doing great but then I got a new job and went from walking 5-10 miles a day at my old job to a desk job. The pounds came back and now I am the heaviest I have ever been at over 200. I would really love some friends on here who log everyday and we can motivate each other. Feel free to add me :smiley:

    We can be friends! Please note that I do not always eat "clean." I allow myself a treat every day and sometimes I go over my calories. However, I'm real and I'm really in this for the long haul. I finally hit "rock bottom" and realized just how much I want to change.

    Sent you a request! I'm on my 486th time too. I started last year and lost 65 lbs. looking to lose the next 65 this yeAr.
    After a serious health issue laid me in a hospital bed for a year and 3 more years of trying to bounce back I found myself 150 lbs heavier tipping the scales at 300. I couldn't deal with it. A year later I am under 250 and 10 sizes smaller in clothes. I still have a long way to go, but I WILL get there.
    lets motivate each other!!!

    Hi! I'm also on about my I don't know let's say 456 attempt to loose weight. I'm at my heaviest at 263. I'm really trying this time. Seeing that scale made me shed some tears & also got me motivated to loose weight. I would like to add you as my friend but honestly I don't know how.

    I tell my kids this Japanese proverb all the time it's applies to school, sports, or anything that takes individual effort...

    "Fall seven times and stand up eight"

    Good luck.
