Well it may just be me around here,

but I'll post anyway. I've put back on ALL the weight I had lost, and I HAVE to get rid of it again.
It's been a combination of getting pregnant (and all the 'well you are pregnant/breastfeeding so eat some more' excused) and giving up on my diet, and generally just giving it to temptation all the time. Not to mention not getting any exercise at all really for I don't know how long.

Plan of action
1. Pray and read my bible - I know this may not seem the most obvious place to start, but I know I can't do this in my own strength.

2. Get exercising. I've bought a new DVD which is another dance one. I don't reckon I'll be any good at it, but if it gets me moving and makes me laugh, it's gotta be a good thing. I'm also talking with my husband and mum about the possibility of getting my treadmill over here, but it's big and heavy and won't be easy to move, so I don't know how realistic that it.

3. Get on track with eating. I think the key will be planning, so that I don't keep grabbing junk cos it's easy. This will also mean I need to not have junky stuff in the house. Christmas etc was a big excuse to eat junk, but I think we've got rid of most of it now.

Ok, I weighed myself last Tuesday and I was 297.8.
Today (Monday, 6 days later) I am at 296.8, which is down a pound without being very good at all, so hopefully now that I'm really trying that trend will continue!

I know I've been here before, but it's been a long while and I'm glad I found you again.

I'm trying to get back on the weight loss track after having a baby in November. I'm battling the same "I just had a baby and am nursing and my appetite is crazy" kind of thing. Worst thing is; this is my third baby and I had the same crazy pattern with each one, so I know better. With each pregnancy I maintained my weight (safe for a gal well over 200#) and then gained during the 6 months or so after the birth. That means after birthing a healthy baby i actually lost weight and then gained post partum! I've put on 10+ pounds already and it must stop!

Love your 3 priorities! Especially #1. I need to seriously work on #3, but I find it harder than exercising.

I'll be back to see how you're doing. You can do it, especially with His help.
