I haven't been on in probably almost a year... I had some family drama that really did a number on me emotionally and it caused me to fall of the weigh-loss wagon. I was doing well around this time last year, but now I've regained all the weight I'd lost plus some... I'm embarassed and a little ashamed...
I guess what I wanted to ask is what do y'all do when you fall off the wagon? How do you find the motivation to start up again and keep going? I need some help here and my family is no help as they're basically worse off than I am.

@mysister Hello Missy, I think we've all been in your shoes at some point. There's no reason to be ashamed, it happens to everyone, regardless of their size. I think it's important to be kind to yourself. Don't beat yourself up about it. I motivate myself by reminding myself that I'm doing this for me and no one else. I'm not trying to impress anyone, I'm just trying to help myself feel better physically and mentally.

@mysister Hey, it's like the saying about riding a horse or whatever, you just get up and try again! No big deal. Everybody has moments where they have to put other things first. You just got to remind yourself when you get through the tough moment that you're doing it for yourself and that you're going to feel better. Don't do it for others, do it for you.
