    I know how you feel! It happens to all of us, so don't worry. I always gain weight over the winter... I guess in the colder months you just feel like cuddling up and eating more, especially in December! But have comfort knowing you'll probably work it all off again once you start eating healthier and being more active, like you were in the summer? You need to work on getting the willpower again.

    I think for OP it's more a case of keeping it off which has a few contributing factors, determination, self esteem and mental health. What's your life like, OP? Do you go to school/college/uni? Do you have lots of friends? Do you socialise a lot? What are you depressed about?

    just do some exercise... like weekly or something to start off with... cut down on junk food... a few good tips: hot drinks like tea & soup help you to feel fuller than you are, so when you feel you want to eat something, just drink something hot. (but don't stuff your tea with sugar, try a dash of honey instead)
    get more sleep? i read on an article somewhere that if you don't sleep enough & are tired, your appetite increases.
    but the main thing is exercise, need to speed up your metabolism.

    Go to a gym as soon as possible. Go every other day minimum. Don't snack, don't drink coke or fizzy drinks, and stay away from fried foods. That should sort out any weight issues quickly. Should be a difference in a week or two.
    Sooner you start, sooner you'll loose weight, feel healthy & feel happier

    Just get back into the training routine; perfect your diet and maintain a healthy active lifestyle and you'll be back in no time!

    Get a training and diet program because otherwise a) you won't know what you're doing in the gym unless you're experienced b) you won't be able to monitor improvements and c) you'll eventually lose your motivation. The gym is a fad for 99% of people, they go and they stop, they like to pretend like they know what they're doing but they have no training program, they rarely get any stronger or fitter and if they do it's slow and a minor improvement, which ebbs when they stop bothering to go at Christmas. Be different.

    I had this problem! and ive pretty much sorted! so first hand experience here! In no particular order...

    1. Drink water ! as much as you can !
    2. I cut out all takeaways, chocolate biscuits cake crisp etc, fizzy drinks, high fat containing products. i eat alot of fruit now and try as much veg as possible (dont work much i hate most of them lol)
    3. Speed up your metabolism, aka eat little and often, eat snacks such as apples and ceral bars or whatever every 3 hours max.
    4. Have breakfast! this is crucial! best stuff would probably be porridle although atm i have fruit and fibre and bran flakes, but these arent the best.
    5. Exercise! i currently run 4.5 miles at least once a week and time it, trying to beat my time all the time, plus i do football training and play football.
    6. More exercise, i bought a pull up bar and have been using this ive gone from 0 pull ups to 8 in 2 weeks, in also use it for pressups and dips and do loads of situps, im about to do some now cause i didnt last nite haha :P
    7. Finally ! motivation ! if you havent got any FIND SOME ! imagine your body after all the effort put in! imagine peoples positive responses to you! and be glad of the fact that you are making yourself healthier, you will feel 10 times better for it, and keep drinking that water, and get as much vitamin c as possible and drink water this is vital, and you will get ill less and your face should be glowing !

    and that is all! good luck :P, although you dont need luck you need self motivation! and possible thinking!

    No it doesn't, I've always been under 9.5 stone and rarely go +/-5 no matter how much crap I eat
