Don't feel badly. I bought a new scale yesterday and realized that my other scale was pretty off, so I had to adjust my goals and starting point - made me feel like I had to start all over. I have walked 4 miles in 2 days and the scale now says I have gained a pound overnight. BLAH!

Are you retaining water from the heat? Maybe gaining muscle instead of fat?

Just don't let it get you down. Keep moving. Scales lie to us constantly. How did you feel BEFORE you got on the scale? Don't let it rule your emotions!!!

Enjoy your weekend,

Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've just celebrated my SP eight month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all.

To celebrate your arrival at SP in this soon-to-be summer season, I would like to wish you a everlasting renewal of energy and passion, for this is a time to celebrate the great potential you possess. May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle

Hello and Welcome to SparkPeople!

I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come!
