starting over.... AGAIN!

well I was doing good. I went from 283 to 243, then I fell off the wagon and went back to my old ways. now I am at 260. now all the pains are back too, sore feet, lower back pain, swollen knees, and dull "all day" headaches. I can say that I felt none of that when I was "low carbing"... I've made up my mind that I will see it though this time!!

thanks for letting me vent!!

Most of us don't get it right the first time. I think these 'what not to do' events can be used as learning tools. Welcome back!

Glad to see you back. Yep, that's the learning curve for ya! But, at least you didn't regain all of it, that's a win. Hopefully, you can see, you can never go back to your 'old ways'. No matter how much easier it is.

thanks to ALL!!
I've been low carbing for 2 days and the pains are slowly going down... I'm still working on my WOE. I believe the key to dieting is though educating myself on what works for me, and I have learned from my past mistakes!!
love this site!!

Welcome back and good luck. The first week was the toughest for me so I can feel your pain. One of the most important things for me to learn, other than what to do, was what not to do. The only way to know what wouldn not work in my plan was to test it out or have a failure.

welcome back! i was dealing with this same issue last week. Be glad you made the turnaround BEFORE you gained it all back. the biggest lesson i've learned here is NOT to look back or start in with the "shoulda coulda wouldas". Just dust yourself off and KEEP MOVING FORWARD! you already know it works. All you gotta do is keep going!

I hear you!!! I met my goal about 4 yrs ago dropping from a high of 288 to a low of 170. It was amazing and life changing! I maintained for 3 yrs then wound up moving back in with mom(ugh) and with the help of her delicious cooking, I've climbed back up to 205. So depressing to feel the old aches and pains and uncomfortable clothing. I'm back! I'm with you! LETS DO THIS! Seriously, French fries are not that awesome - being quick on your feet in adorable clothes is awesome.

This is my second time around, too. Lost all the weight back in 2003 and maintained for many years. Then let it creep back up. Re-started in 2012 and now very close to goal. Loving it! You will get there!

Maybe weighing every 2 weeks would help. Stepping on that lying piece of equipment will drive you nuts and make you want to throw in the towel, so avoid daily weighing. I have to go by the way clothes become looser!!

Yes! Dill pickles are a lifesaver when it comes to late night snacking! One of my favorite snacks is taking pickle spears and wrapping them in a piece of deli ham and cream cheese. yum

Being a little OCD, I have to know everyday -- so I weigh myself everyday at around the same time. I've been doing this WOE a long time (every time I lose the weight I thought I could eat like other carb-eating people -- yeah like that WORKED ).

I know if I eat exactly to my WOE plan, the pounds will come off. If there is a "hiccup" on the scale, it's not because I ate something illegal (aka CARBS). There's no way I could wait (or is that weight? LOL) 2 weeks to weigh myself. So, stick to the WOE plan you've chosen religiously and you'll see results if it's the correct plan for you!
