Hello everyone my name is Alicia. I have been back and forth with weight loss and have recently really gained the motivation to stick to a healthier lifestyle. My soon to be husband works a lot and is tired so I began finding ways for him to feel healthier and I have also done them. With my illnesses I have been battling for years my meds tend to make me very out of it and I can't always stay motivated. Recently I started going to the gym (which has been sporatic) now I am going daily with the help of my other half (he watches the kids for me). I write what I do for exercise at the gym and what I eat. I also write a motivational quote for myself every day which I write on the wipe board in my dinning room as well. I am still having a hard time since I do not see the weight coming off. The scale doesn't move. I eat well but I don't eat a lot. I eat when I am hungry which is what I have read is best as when I eat and am not hungry I get sick. Just wondering if anyone has some tips for me? Need someone to help me really keep going. I get married in October of this year and want to lose a lot of weight before then. Thank you everyone.

Great job Patti. Welcome to SP.

To the person who is working out and the scale isn't moving, you may be shutting your losses down by eating too little.

I was asked to be in a wedding in a year from now and am hoping I loose 35 pounds by then. I am getting stuck, the scale didn't go down this week and I exercised more then I ever have. It is very frustrating and disappointing.

My name is Patti and I am new to Sparkpeople. I am tired of being unhealthy,so I am eating better and moving my body more each day. I guess my BIGGEST motivation to lose weight is to permanently getting off my oral diabetic medication !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon
