Hi Jakevoll, welcome. If your in need of support this is the place to be. I've found so much support from the people in this forum.
You make perfect sense, I believe we've all been there, at some point (or we wouldn't be here, Everybody has that "ah ha" moment).
My defining moment was when I REALLY looked in the mirror after my shower one day. After I was done crying, I decided something needed done, that's when I found fitday. I log everything I eat and do (including sleep hours). If I don't, the only one I'm fooling is ME.
Take the time to figure this all out. To learn what works for you and YOUR lifestyle. You can do it. The tools you need are all right here, including the support. Use it all. You can do it, if I can...anybody can.
