    Seriously, I agree with the others, your scale has got to be wrong. Unless you (deep down inside) KNOW why you gained the weight. Otherwise it's wrong. You will get conficting opinions of what you should do. The main thing is that you are doing SOMETHING. The best way to approach things is to probably strength train a couple days per week and do cardio the other 3.. to make 5 days of exercise. Do a type of exercise that you can see progress and improvement in. For instance, Couch to 5k is a good program because it is progressive week after week and you can see yourself getting stronger and stronger and having more endurance.

    It has to be impossible for you to gain that amount in 1 week! Either buy a new scale, change the batteries if its digital, make sure it's in the same spot on every weigh in, make sure you are wearing the same clothes.

If you think, 1lb is the equivalent to 3500 calories, that means that you would have to of overeaten by 52000!! NO WAY!!

    First off, your daughter is the absolute cutest!

Secondly, there is no way you gained 15 lbs in one week. Your scale must be either way off or you moved it which changed the equilibrium.

In my opinion, to lose weight, you have to do 3 things: 1) cut calories to a healthy level, 2) burn calories through cardio, 3) strength train to build muscle mass and shape. Nothing magic about it. Spark does a pretty good job of telling you what you need to do, but if you need help figuring out what you need to do exactly, let me know. I've made personalized exercise/diet recommendations for a few people before.

Keep at it! Don't get discouraged. 1 week is nothing.
