@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 @clarence1954 Hello mysister and clarence1954, thank you for creating and participating in this discussion! Congratulations on finding the motivation to stay active! There is no shame in needing to start over, getting a handle on your health is a long and difficult journey filled with ups and downs, regardless of where you start and the number on the scale!

@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.
First, always be positive and start a new diet plan that is helpful for you.
Hey Missy, Welcome back! We're stoked you're back on the forum and ready to get back on the weight-loss wagon. It can be tough to jump back in after such a long break, but you can do it! Take some time to think about why you want to make this change and how it'll make you feel when you reach your goals. It'll be your motivation. Then, create a weight loss plan with a specialist with achievable goals, both short-term and long-term. This will help keep you on track and motivated. Don't be too hard on yourself if you slip up - it's normal. Lastly, find yourself a support system of people who will cheer you on and encourage you. We're here to help, too!

"It can be tough to restart a weight-loss journey after falling off the wagon. I'm actually in the same boat as you - I'm trying to lose weight too! I recently stumbled upon an interesting article about steroids that stimulate fat burn and weight loss. It's definitely something worth looking into if you're struggling to see results. However, it's important to remember that any weight-loss journey should prioritize your health and safety above all else. Here's the link with more info: https://www.laweekly.com/best-steroid-for-weight-loss/ As for finding motivation, I think it's helpful to set small, achievable goals for yourself and track your progress. Celebrate the little victories along the way, and don't be too hard on yourself if you slip up - just keep moving forward. And don't be afraid to reach out for support - there are plenty of online communities and resources out there to help you along the way."

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.
