Hi everyone! I am new to this group and was hoping to reach out to get some support! About 1.5 years ago I lost a lot of weight and was so happy and proud of myself. Now 1.5-2 years later here I am and have gained it all and then some back. I am so mad at myself! I am at the heaviest I have ever been.
I joined the gym again for group fitness training and started their meal plan again this week. I'm struggling though, not so much with the meal plan because it's a lot of food so I'm not hungry. More so with going to the workout classes. I've been having small panic attacks before going to them and while I am there I am noticing that I am feeling better while working out, but while I am waiting to start I feel like I am ready to pass out. I think it's because of how shameful I feel since it's the same place I lost the weight to begin with. I feel like I let everyone down. I am going to keep going, I need to for my health. It's so difficult emotionally though and these thoughts of being a failure keep coming up. What do I do?

@OrangeBlossum2021 when it comes to weight, people understand. We all know it’s a lot of things combined that causes it. It happens to everybody.
The fact that you’re making such an effort right now is what you can remind yourself of.
If it were your best friend, you would tell her it’s OK. Be gentle with yourself.
Love yourself the way you would your best friend. Remind yourself that you’ve done this before and you can do it again.
Not everyone has the courage and determination to keep going like you do.
You will inspire everyone that you know.
