Confession Time:
I've gotten really off track for quite some time now (I've gained all of my weight back plus 5 pounds). I hit a plateau back in October 2003, yo-yoed for several months, then started losing my motivation and slacking off more and more. From there, things got worse with an unexpected divorce in 2004, moving twice in 6 months after the divorce, etc. I just lost all motivation at some point, and even though I didn't want to gain my weight back, it didn't bother me enough to do anything about it either. I pretty much stopped exercising and cooking, and started eating fast food everyday (it was faster and easier and I just didn't feel like cooking anymore). I'm not proud of what I've done, but I am human. I've realized that the weight comes back on a lot faster than it did originally (a lot faster and seems to take a much harder toll on the body). I feel terrible physically and mentally. I especially feel guilty because so many of you have looked to me for inspiration in the past, and I feel I've not only let myself down, but you as well. The program really does work, but you have to work the program, and I wasn't doing that like I use to.

I've tried countless times over the past couple of years to do this. I've actually lost count as to how many times I've started over just since January 2006. I've recently gotten a 2nd full time job, and finding the time to cook has been really hard. I'm trying to cook on one of my days off for the week and portion it out. I've been really good about packing my lunch and staying away from the cafeteria food. I've also done really well with not touching the cake that is brought in for everyone's birthday at my 2nd job (I even passed on my own birthday cake yesterday). :) Bottom line, I'm not perfect, but I'm trying my best. As long as I keep trying, I haven't failed.
