move on...no point in wasting energy on not making a goal. I work on moving forward and meeting my goal - without guilt

Try to determine cause and move on. No longer get too upset about one negative result. I have learned to monitor current and past results for trends. If a negative result is noticed in trends I analyze and adjust behavior.

Try different things, like changing up your workout routine or eating differently. I really noticed a difference in my weekly weigh-ins when I started eating a full freezer baggie full of vegetables each day, for example. Just give it some dedication and time and it will work!

Hang in there and don't give up.

Last summer I plateaued for months. And it was frustrating. I realized though that staying in one place is a lot better than going backward. Eventually the scale will catch up.

Some times it seems as though the Force of Gravity is stronger on different days, especially at the doctors office. I wouldn't let the scale get in my way from exercising or eating right. After all it was 6 weeks of hard work in the gym and using the treadmill that I stepped on a scale and thought the scale was broken and stepped on another one. Sure enough I lost 12 pounds.

Some things to remember... if you are a female, what time of the month is it? It could be natural bloating/water weight gain. Also, if you are doing anything with weights, it could be you are building muscle. Don't always go by the numbers, go by how well your clothes are fitting, how you are feeling.

It is a postive though that you are feeling good about the changes. It is not just about weight but prevention of healh problems that happen especially as we age. Also weight loss takes time and often if it is slow it will stay off. Give yourself a break and try to focus on the positives.

I'm not sure if this will be helpful to you or not since I weight about twice as much as you do right now and its a lot easier for me to lose since I have so much to lose but...

Last week when I weighed in I stayed the same and I was ticked I had started working out and watched ever morsel I put in my mouth and I stayed the same? I almost threw the old health-o-meter out the ******* window! My second reaction was to hit the fast food drive thru but... I said to myself "stay the course" its sort of become my mantra and I weighed in yesterday and lost 5 pounds.

So my advice is keep on doing what your doing and your bound to see positive results.
