So, I've been on this app for a while and never been able to continually work out and maintain healthy eating habits for more than a few days. Everytime I look at myself I see a body that is unfamiliar and continuing to grow out and down. Not only am I short, so even the slightest weight gain shows, but I am naturally thick and muscular. I use to play multiple sports and was constantly active but that has changed.

What has everyone found to be the best way to start a healthy lifestyle that keeps them coming back and continuing to move forward? Any suggestions at all are appreciated!

I found giving myself some tough love at times helps, not looking in the mirror and going ur a fat ass!!! But if I'm on the couch and watching tv I tell myself if u have time to watch tv u have time to do something!!!

A workout buddy really does help. Mine is my Mom- we are trying to motivate each other, even though our goals are very different. It's working pretty well. We keep each other honest! 

I know how you feel though, I used to be really fit and it's depressing to look in the mirror and see all the weight I need to lose. I'm trying to focus on how much I'm enjoying moving my body again, and keeping it simple enough that I work out every day for 30 minutes or 3 miles minimum. If I focus on how fat I feel, I'll never actually lose anything!
