Sorry to hear that you are "failing miserably". I think the fact that you're here posting is a sure sign that you haven't failed yet. I left some ideas on your SparkPage to help you get back on track to success.

"Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward..." "All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them." (quotes: Walter Elias Disney)
I have lost 60 pounds and gained back 2.5. I am working very diligently to get rid of those 2.5. I increased my aquarobics that I do in a heated pool from 90 minutes to TWO hours, 6 days a week. I still eat 1200 calories per day. I am in a non-profit support group (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) and could never have done this without their support. You will lose those 25 that you gained back. However, you must revise your healthy approach to living as well as eating. You will also need to exercise. Remember to keep a good positive attitude and don't be discouraged if you do nothing wrong and gain a small amount or hit a plateau. Remember to take your measurements on a regular basis - at least once a month. When you don't lose pounds, most of the time you will lose inches. Good luck
Great job on the list and the weight loss! Thanks for being an inspiration!

Thanks for sharing. I have lost 58 pounds and am having trouble losing that final 2. I am going for a net loss of 60 pounds. I have been within 5 pounds of this loss since August of 2007.I am trying to have patience with myself but it really is hard at this point. I have increased my cardio whenever I am doing aquarobics and am now eating 1400 calories per day. Thanks, Bonney

That is wonderful. I started with SP a little over a year ago but when I hit a standstill that really discouraged me after awhile. I'm really motivated now and pray I can stay that way. I have noticed I'm able to get it a couple more things I couldn't before but I have a long way to go.
Great post! I found your 25 lessons really inspirational. Congratulations on your awesome weight loss! =)
Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching!

That is wonderful ! Congratulations on the loss, and relatively fast too ! There is a lot of inspiration in your 25 lessons. I just passed 50 lbs myself, but it's taken me 6 months. 6 inches off my waist, and looking to drop another 6 inches plus at least another 40 lbs.

Awesome job! Beyond the success that the numbers on the scal show, your post is proof that you've got a good head on your shoulders and a good attitude and relationship with the process. Good luck on the rest of your journey.

way to go. I find the journey teaches so much! Learning about your body, about what you put in it, and what you do with it, I have never been so aware or as happy as I have since I started sp, and started living like I was meant to live. I'm so glad you've had success
