I need help.

I am back up to my heaviest weight. And I am terrified.

I am 5' tall.

My lightest adult weight was 160 for a few weeks (150 for a few days) four years ago. Then my boyfriend dumped me, I lost my job, got really sick and started working at a diner: hence no maintenance.

My highest weight was 220 eight years ago and I'm back there.
I eat relatively well but I splurge too often.
I do not work out. I keep making plans, doing really well for a week then stopping. I have ADHD and I need someone to hold me accountable.
I got a promotion and I have to dress nice. I went shopping today and cried for the first time since I hit 150. I look disgusting.

My goal is 115-120.

The last time I was under 150 I was in 4th grade...

Help me. Please.

Hey there.

Remember first and foremost you aren't alone. While this may not be the most active community these days there are many of us who have been in a situation like yours.

The biggest single piece of advice I can give you is to start small. You don't need to move into a full workout routine and radically change your diet to start making a difference. Make a vow to walk 15 minutes a day and get a few glasses of water in. Do that for a few weeks and as you start getting more comfortable with your routine kick it up a notch. Always remember that any day in which you take some kind of positive step is a good one.

I'm back at my highest weight too, at least I think I am because I haven't weighed myself yet because I know it's going to depress me. I was doing so great for a while and i got stressed at work and started eating and stopped going to the gym. I hope that this community will become more active - it just needs a few people to start posting more and with new years coming up that is the best season to start. I'm going to start posting anyway and I think when a few people start posting it will take off more.
