If the scale is stressing you out that badly, I would lock it away for a bit. Weigh yourself when you feel ready. In the meantime, just focus on eating right, drinking your water, getting what exercise you can in, and tracking taking your pills. Hang in there, you can do it!
GREAT idea to add my meds to my daily goals - taken them on time 3 days straight now!! Thank you so much for that suggestion!
Nice to know you are all out there "starting over" with me. Big question is do I weigh in at 7 days or wait 2 weeks? I am trying to not get on the scale until at least one week has gone by. God if that number does not go down I will DIE!
I know what you are talking about. 1 year after my last child I was feeling great, had lost all my pregnancy weight and was the lightest I had been in years. Those are some nice pictures to look at. A lot different than now! I have gained it all back plus 15 more lbs. The heaviest I have ever been. As a nurse practitioner I give advice to my clients all the time about how important it is to be healthy and make good choices in life. I could always tell them I know how hard it is to lose weight. Then I realized it was time to actually do as I tell my clients. I have struggled with depression and blamed that as well. NO more. It is me and only me that controls what I do. One day at a time is what I think of. I have made it through 7 days so far with exercise each day and no junk food!!! You can do it to. Don't think of the end goal, just think of baby steps.

YOU CAN DO IT!!! I think many of us here have lost some weight and then gained it back. You still have some time until November, so as long as you eat well and stay active there is no reason for you to not attend that reunion

Can you make taking your meds regularly one of your spark goals?
2 summers ago I was 5lbs from my goal weight, logging all my food and exercising. Now I am 20lbs heavier and so not motivated . I know what I have to do, I just can't seem to get myself to do it. Dr. started me on Zoloft months ago and I have not been able to take it regularly enough for it to actually start working, which makes me even more depressed!
25th High School reunion is November 24th, If I don't lose AT LEAST 10lbs by then I am NOT GOING!! I know it's too much to ask to lose 15, but boy that would be nice.
So I am back today, trying to log my food and fight my depression enough to force myself out of the house to at least walk. Any encouragement would be a great help. I have to make myself do this, I can't sit on the couch any more :(
