My pants are too tight again.

I'm back up to the weight I started with on PT, just under a year ago.

Can I really do this? Can I be successful?

I can't afford to buy new clothes.
I can't afford to be unhealthy.

Please let me be strong enough to commit to this.

I have been exactly there! I lost over 30lbs on PT starting in September 05 through around July of last year. Then I completely fell off. I went back up to just 5lbs under my highest weight. But I realized in February of this year that I had two choices. 1. Keep doing what I was doing and be miserable in my own body. or 2. Go back to what I had successfuly don't before and try try again. I'm down 17.5 pounds, and feel so much better.

If I can do it you can do it. We all fall down, but what's important is that we get up again. You are strong enough to do this.

Since joining PT, I lost 30 lbs, then gained back 10. I had the same epiphany that 10:51 did, and now have lost the 10 (again) and feel much better and will be continuing. I gained the 10 back because I took a hiatus from posting, even dropping from my groups. Now that I have rejoined and done the posting, I am back on track. As one of my group members has posted on her notes, "Fall down seven times, get up eight." Japanese proverb. Get back on the horse, OP, because you deserve the good health you will get. The good news is that you did it once, so you know you can do it again. I found that getting back into an exercise routine has really improved my success rate and how well I feel. Good luck, OP and 10:51!

I agree with 11:22 poster... I found that I started gaining again when I did not make posting daily a priority.
I am vowing to shed the 5 lbs I gained recently by the end of May. I know I can do it, I just have to re-commit and getting back into the "habit" of working out and eating well!

In the time you gained that 40, were you logging your exercise and diet everyday? Because I definitely think that makes a difference in staying on track. Even if you mess up, you feel to bad to keep logging that every day, plus your group should be encouraging you! I think staying involved really works

My 9:53 comment was for 12:26. Sorry, new to the site

I am thoroughly inspired now.

To answer a question not exactly pointed toward me, but still applies... NO, I wasn't logging when my mistakes became more frequent than my successes. I felt too bad about not being an inspiration to my groups and team.

I really appreciate that you all have been where I am now, and have just picked right back up and gotten on track again. Again, you're right... if you can do it, I damn well should be able to, too!
