This is my time to shine

I am starting this over again, with a deeper understanding of what the spark is all about and with a better knowledge of who I am.

Hi there. I noticed your comment about a gain this week on someone else's Spark Page.

If you are doing everything right, counting your calories, doing your exercise, I can't tell you why your scales showed a gain, but I can assure you it wasn't fat.

There can be so many reasons why our weight fluctuates, including hormones, fluid retention -- you name it! For some weird reason, my weight often goes up right before I lose again.

Good for you for not using it as an excuse to give up, by the way.

If you keep working out and watching your calories (I always use the Nutrition Tracker) your weight will come down. In a few years time when you've been maintaining a healthy weight for a while, the extra few weeks it took to see that drop won't matter one bit.

Look at these times as an opportunity to learn more about your body and why it acts the way it does. Which brings me to another important point. Are you eating the right amount of calories for the exercise you're doing? If you don't eat enough, your body may shut down thinking it is protecting you from starving. Are you charting everything that reaches your lips? Measuring your food to be sure of your portion sizes? It's amazing to me how just a few small bites of the wrong food can equal several hundred calories and sabotage my efforts.

The weight will come off because you can't fail if you don't give up, and you have a great attitude!

Thanks so much for stopping by my Sparkpage! You can definitely do this. Try to break it down into smaller goals. It's easier to make it to those goals which will motivate you to keep going! Remember, time is going to pass whether your doing it or not!! You may as well be losing--even if it's less than a pound a week it will add up.

don't get discouraged, instead pay attention to when you had the weight gain, i.e.timing. Hormones can play tricks on you and at that time of the month I always have a two pound gain. Hold tight and keep up the good work. It will go away in a couple of days. Maybe stay off the scale for a couple of days.
