I used to weigh nearly 300 pounds, that is until I decided to better myself. It took some time, but I dropped down to 170. However, lately I've found myself putting on some more weight due to lack of time for exercise. I work at a computer, so I am constantly sitting. That doesn't help.

I'd pry be a little happier as a person if I stopped worrying about my weight so much, but I can't help it.

Need to set some new goals and make time for working out, whether it's a simple run around the neighborhood or to the gym in town.

Change your diet, if you can't get some more exercise. :) It might not seem fair or delicious, but even the smallest changes can make a difference. You'll also adapt pretty quickly; give it a week or two of hard work, and it'll start becoming second nature. Choose carrots instead of chips, frozen fruit instead of candy. Eat Greek yogurt instead of ice cream. I crush up rice cakes, sprinkle with Stevia, and pour milk over it when I feel a craving for cereal. Best of luck!

Don't Rebound. Sustaining weight loss is the most important thing you can do for your health. I've been sustaining for about 3 years now and my numbers are similar to yours. Don't slip back into old habits.

Find new inspiration. Get into body weight exercises, the gym, a social running club, a rec. basketball league anything to reaffirm your weight loss. Help others achieve weight loss- it will refocus you to stay on track. You've done the hard work already- no going back!

My big problem is just finding the time anymore. Juggling numerous jobs and school, I don't have much down time these days.

Congratulations on your weight loss! This is good news to hear!
