Hi Lexie! 

My weight used to Yoyo up and down as well. I find that instant changes in diets are effective in the short term but results in that Yoyo effect because our body starts craving the sugary, salty, unhealthy snacks after a while and we go back to that. At least that was how it was like for me. 

I eat healthyish most of the time time (not even overly healthy - but just a wide variety of greens, whole grains, protein (chicken, fish) and fats) and treat myself occasionally with that muffin or cupcake or even a bag of potato crisps.

I started off with just going for gym classes. Just to see what type of exercises I enjoyed and what types just aren't for me. Once you know yourself, you can stick to that or start going to the gym or body weight exercises at home! :) 

Oh to form a habit, I dragged myself out of bed the first 2 weeks to head to the gym before work/school (cos you know when we come back and we're tired there's no stopping us from lying on the couch) and now it's sort of a habit! Even if I'm too tired or injured, I'll ise the morning for sun salutations or just a quick stretch.

The main thing is to find a way that you enjoy and is sustainable for you. Also loads of water!! 

I hope this kinda helps you and motivates you to keep going!!
