Thanks for the encouragement!! The previous weightloss has taken a year and a half and yes, I always want things yesterday! :) It seems to get harder and harder to lose weight the older I get. On the flipside, worrying about a couple of pounds will never get me anywhere. Luke 12:25 says "Has anyone by fussing before the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? If fussing can't even do that, why fuss at all?" It is all about perspective! Thank you so much for taking the time to encourage me! You have an amazing weekend!!

You will not see a weight loss on the day you burned the calories. Also, you are building muscle. Muscle weighs more. Try using your measurements to see results and only weigh youself once a week. You will see the results of your hard work.

You are doing remarkably well!! I want a lot of things yesterday and get frustrated when my body does not want to cooperate with me. I have revamped and am now just working it out in my head. Your body will do what it wants to do..but if you keep at your healthy program it will eventually obey you. Just keep Sparkin' and having faith.

Keep Sparkin'!

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers Philemon 1:3,4

So...I burned 730 calories yesterday and did not surpass my calorie intake according to my meal plan and I gained 1 1/2 pound! Can anyone explain this to me? I exercise regularly, watch very closely what I eat and drink lots of water. Before coming to this site, I had lost 55 pounds and was needing help losing the last 10 - 12 but so far that hasn't happened. Does your body have a stopping point or a place where you just can't lose any more? I would appreciate any help! Thanks! Have a great day!
