You are always welcome back to this board. We have all had stops and starts and you never know which time the changes will stick.

It sounds like you know what you need to do to start - you just have to love yourself enough to do it. Can you name three reasons why you matter to someone else? Can you name three things you like about yourself? Three things you wouldn't want to change about you. Three things you enjoy doing? Those are ways you can motivate yourself, focusing on the positive.

If you could walk on the treadmil for two minutes, next time, try for three. Or to walk at 1 speed faster for two minutes. Every day, set a goal for yourself - to drink eight glazes of water or to walk up one flight of stairs, or to eat a healthy breakfast and then nothing until lunch..and then at the end of the day, praise yourself for doing it.

You have everything you need to succeed inside you - you can do this.

Best wishes

You are more than welcome here! There have been months and years when I was away from this site as well. Especially the year I had my baby. I love it here, all the support is fantastic. Just jump right back in and no need to be sorry about anything.

Hi Sara, and welcome to you as well.

A history of success is not a prerequiste for posting!
