I read your blog. You went off track a few months ago.
I have been at my goal weight for a few years, yet I STILL always weigh all my food for accuracy, and enter it into the nutrition tracker, to ensure that I stay at that weight. I had been overweight (obese) for about 30 years, even tho' I was eating a health diet and in a (normally) healthy range.
You CAN do this. You just have to have faith in yourself, determination and commitment.
CH64412010, I'm on a no snacking challenge myself. I'm finding that eating three regular meals a day is really helping me. I used to have a snack mid afternoon, or in the later evening, but I'm finding that I did that more out of habit than out of hunger.
Don't beat yourself up because you regained some weight. that has happened to us all. You know you're ready to make a change and that's what really matters.
Have you thought about signing up for a 5k road race ? you don't have to run a race, you could also walk it. 5Ks are for fun and charity, no pressure to run the whole thing in a certain time.
Spark (as well as many other websites) have running programs called Couch to 5k, C25K for short. they assume no running experience. they will take you from your couch and prepare you to run a 5k road race.
if you've never run or completed a race, this could be a good challenge.
Plenty of challenges here on SparkPeople... check them out!

I had lost a 100 lbs total a year ago. Since Nov, I have gained 25 of it back. I refuse to go back over 200 lbs, but I'm hovering close. Could really use someone to do challenges with on fitbit or just help keep me on track
