Question my new journey to weight loss!

Hello everyone,

Well, i guess i can introduce myself by saying i been yo yo dieter. up and down all my life. about 4 yrs ago i had really changed my eating habits and worked out regularly. lost about 100 pounds and was in great shape! Now after year of personal stress and also current job, i have gained and now weigh the most i ever did. I am concerend 1. for my health and 2. i want to feel better about myself....

I have been saying for last 2 years im starting tomorrow but like alot of us tomorrow never comes.... so i need some advice from anyone pls. i am findind that reasos i feel that i cant workout or eat properly is due to stress.... i know we all have it but its like i have a bad day ,almost every day, at work, come home all i think about is eating something comforting and sleeping

even when i buy the healthy foods i still last about a week and then slip and never get back to it! is there anyone that may be or have been in the same boat and any advice. i know what i need to do so why cant i just do it????

thanks alot!!!

Pinkprincess,
If I were you I would try meditation. Here's a book that will introduce you to this practice: "The Relaxation Response" by Herbert Benson. You might find it at your local library. It's a good way to gain control and reduce stress, in my opinion.

Start gradually. Don't totally avoid the bad food you use to eat because then you'll start having these cravings and you will lose control and end up eating more.
