Please don't feel you have to apologize -- this message board is here to give us a place to reach out for help when we're struggling!
We have ALL been there, losing lots one week and nothing the next (see my blog today for more on THAT issue!). The good news is, what happens on the scale today has absolutely no bearing on who you are, nor does it take away from what you have accomplished already -- 2 pounds lost! Woo-hoo!
You have embarked on a journey towards a healthier lifestyle. Little by little, you're going to learn new habits and develop new strategies to help you reach and maintain your goal. Along the way, you're going to discover a strength within yourself that you never knew you had, and that strength (along with your annoyingly enthusiastic SparkFriends!) will help to carry you through the rough patches.
In the meantime, hang in there! Focus on what you CAN do (another one of my blogs...there's an underlying theme to them!), and give yourself permission to be less than perfect every single day. One day at a time, you WILL get there! And your SP community will be here, cheering you on every step of the way!
PS: I hope you'll set up a SparkPage soon, so we can go there to offer you encouragement and support!
