This was a comment to Tara’s post from this morning. I’ve been horrible at posting; maybe this is why.

Thank you for putting this out there. I’m trying to start over—again—and it’s important to know that this mental battle is never really won. I lost 60 lbs 4 yrs ago, and regained because when I “arrived,” it didn’t get any easier. I gained back everything and more.

Four years later, everything is still hard…and I’m up 90 lbs from 4 years ago (25 lbs since January 2010). Just typing that makes me want to crawl under something and die, but there’s nothing for it but to keep trying.

*sigh*
