KSJD711, I try not to freak out so much about my weight because from reading articles and other things I have learned that you may not lose any weight, but you may be losing inches which is a very good thing. The more inches you lose, the smaller you get meaning your clothe start to feel bigger and bigger even though you haven't lost much weight. I understand the feeling of frustration because as I mentioned before I have not losed any more weight or inches and I feel like just giving up, but I will NOT to that. I will continue on and give it my best to lose as much weight as I can. I found that the compliments from people have helped me continue and not give up. I really like when people look at me and say "you look thinner, what have you done." I'm going to tell you the same thing another member told me, seek help from a coach and see if they can help you. Good luck and don't give up

Joanna, I try to change up my work out rooutine every other week because I know that your body gets used to the same routines and after a while that routine doesn't really work. As far as injuries, I have none so I will for sure seek help from the coaches. Thank you

I have a question. I get freaked out about weighing myself. I usually weigh myself on Sundays. I almost always do a huge workout on Saturdays, because I am training for a tri with tnt and that is a big group workout day. So, when I weigh myself on Sunday, I often find I've gained. Then I get irritated, fall of the wagon, worry about why that happened, and think, well, hell don't bother. Then a few days later I weigh myself again, just to see if it is as bad as I remembered, at which point, for the last three weeks I have lost. Now, I don't even want to weigh myself the second time because I get freaked out and don't want to lose the progress I've made on my intermediate goals: like working out even though I am frustrated, that sort of thing. Anyone have any suggestions.

I'm in the same boat, MPANTOJA81. My plan is to stay on schedule and keep forging ahead. I'm a emoticon

I was in this place in November. First well done that you lost all that weight that's really impressive. Second what helped me was changing up my exercise to do something more intense but shorter. What worked for me was Gillian Michaels 30 day shred. I'm not suggesting that's what you should do because I don't know what you are doing now, your level of fitness, or if you have any injuries but do go to one of the spark people coaches and ask for advice. Coach Nicola (UK) has really helped me tailor my plan. Good luck you'll get there.

Since November of 2011 I have lost a total of around 13 pounds, but in this last month (January) I have lost nothing. I don't know what is going on. I think I might have hit a plateau and I don't know how to overcome it. I have been eating healthy and staying within my calorie requirements as well as working out at least 4 days a week and still no weight loss. It is becoming frustrating, but I don't want to give up. I just don't know what to do since I'm not losing anymore weight or inches. emoticon
