Welcome to the Expats team. I seem to have the same problem when I get home to the US too, the weight comes on from all the food I can't get where I live too. We CAN do this! We're here for you!

Hello fellow Expats!

Four months ago I moved from California to Holland to live with my husband. As I'm still waiting for my work and residence permits to come in, I'm stuck trying to "relax" and consider this forced vacation a therapeutic thing. emoticon Anyway, I too have struggled with my weight since I've been here. I dropped it a little at first, trying to maintain strict control of myself over Europe delicious (non-low-fat) pastries and cappuccinos. I was more motivated back then to go to the gym as well. After a recent trip back to the US though I gained 5 pounds (as soon as I hit US soil it seems). Now that I'm back in Holland (and still waiting around), I just can't seem to get motivated, drop the weight and get back on track with exercising. So here I am Sparkpeople! Wish me luck!!! emoticon
