I've been overweight all my life. Last week I hit an all-time high. I'm determined to get this under control before it kills me! Not to mention, my toes look like sausages and that's gotta change! lol

Update: November 17, 2015-I've been going through a lot of the "it'll be ok, I'll eat a healthy dinner" moments. Or "I'll just eat what I want this weekend and start Monday." I KNOW its the wrong attitude to have, but the self-doubt and inner demon takes over and I just feel powerless.
One thing I've noticed, larger than life, as I've gained back these 60 lbs, is just how closely my weight is tied to my emotions! I've never really thought I was an emotional eater before, but I am. And it's not just the eating, it's the depression and the absolute lack of will to even get up off my butt and MOVE!
So I'm starting over. I'm going to take baby steps to get back where I need to be. I know I have my short-term goals set starting at 5% loss, but realistically, my first goal is 1%, then 2, then 3. And even logging streaks on here, and tracking streaks. And 10 minutes of movement a day, minimum. I WILL get back to my happy place!

    Hello,

    Please have them change this part then so others know you really can't do two in one day even though the last line says you can:

    We will visit 1 of the 5 countries each day. To get your passport stamped you must do the tasks listed under the country's name. You can get up to 5 stamps. One per country. To travel to each country you must do 15+ minutes of exercise. If you need to visit 2 countries in 1 day, remember that you will need to do 30 exercise minutes.

    Amy, thanks for the hugging bears, love them. So far, I'm understanding the Around the World Challenge now that we've gotten started. Wanted to let you know too that I'm doing the best I can helping with the relay but lots of the exercises I can't do. I am troubled with vertigo so I can't get on the floor to exercise because it makes me dizzy then I get nauseous. I will definitely participate when I can.
