    We all lose at different rates. I have been on here since January 3rd and haven't lost but a pound or so, and still fluctuate.

    Don't put too much stress on yourself. This is about changing your lifestyle and still enjoying life and food and exercise. If you overkill it you may get frustrated (I know, cause I did that the first time I tried SP)

    And, the scale really can be a bad thing. Once a week is the only time I will do it, because I used to jump on it every day and I noticed that would affect how my day went. If I was down a pound I would be very into my plan and exercising, but if I went up I was frustrated and gave up that day. I would eat bad because I felt like it didn't matter anyway.

    And, also keep in mind that muscle weighs more than fat, so if you are working out and not seeing results on the scale, try measuring yourself. That will be more accurate on fat you've lost.

    Don't weigh yourself daily unless you can learn to roll with the number. You can do this!

    I've been on many diets over the course of 34 years. This is the first time I've joined a program and have concentrated on my health instead of the scales. Yes, I do weigh and wgt loss is a great side effect but what's better is that I'm making a change to live better, happier, more fulfilled, and hopefully a lot longer.

    Try not to be so hard on yourself. This is life, we all trip up a little now and then. Would you be this hard on your best friend or sister? If not, then why so hard on yourself?

    Wishing you the best of health,

    Weighing daily can sabatoge your efforts. We are women and our weight can fluctuate 3-5 pounds in a single day (let alone monthly issues).

    You can not compare yourself to anyone else. People lose at different rates depending upon exercise, fitness levels, how far from goal, what the goal is, etc....

    Each day is a new day and a new opportunity to do something special for yourself. Try to do one thing for yourself today. Tomorrow do 2 things. emoticon

    Don't forget yesterday's blog! Sure, you had a set back, but you've also started fresh. Don't look back, just think about how much you want to accomplish apart from the weight loss and get excited about it! It will definitely spill over.

    Big hugs!!
