Anyone lost weight and needs motivation (or an arse kicking!) to help keep it off?

I lost around 2 stone last year (have namechanged as post on a few other boards here!). I went from a size 14-16 to a size 8-10 with a combination of diet and exercise (it was mainly the running that did it).

I've been successful in keeping it off - it's a year now since I started my diet but the last month has been very stressful. My job isn't going very well, I've been under the weather with mild illnesses (nothing major but draining), I've got a few problems with the dcs that are playing on my mind and out of stress relief, I've been reaching for the ice cream and sweets sad and stopping exercising.

I've put on 2kg in the last 2 weeks and really need to stop it right now. I'm going to do a run again tomorrow (i've stopped running for the last month) and just kick my arse into gear but I'm just wondering if there's anyone else who needs a kick up the arse along with me so we can support each other!

apols if I don't come back to the thread during the day today as I have a mad day at work!

Me! I just got to goal earlier this year. Now stressed - emotional eating & boozing - and really busy so little time to do food prep. I’m 1kg up but need to stop eating this way! I know how to do it, it’s just motivation and time. Argh!
Yesterday was my first day back on track. Hope I can stick to it for more than a day!
