In the words of Oprah.... How did I let this happen again?

Looking back over this blog has me really ashamed of myself. I worked so ridiculously hard for 8 months, only to slack off when life got hectic. I slowly stopped going to the gym and slowly started eating junk again. I haven't forgotten all that I learned, so I'm up only 20 lbs as opposed to the entire 80. I've gone from a comfortable size 10 to a very exact fitting 12. My tummy that was so close to being completely flat is now pudgy. I still avoid all beef and pork, but my portions have slowly gotten larger. I still monitor my calorie intake though, and I'm working on getting back into a normal gym routine. I now have to lose 55 pounds to reach my goal! I can't believe I am saying those words once again. At my lowest, I was only 29 pounds from goal. Weight gain stinks!!!! Maintenance is sooooooo much harder than losing was, and to top it all off, the motivation and will power just aren't what they used to be. I have got to find some way to get back on track. I want so desperately to be a size 8!
