Depressed but still have hope

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

So I have not excelled at the Spark People program but have done OK - stayed within calorie counts and met planned exercise calories for the week - and I gained a pound. As I stepped on the scale this morning I was so hopeful - just a pound or even half a pound would be so awesome and rewarding. But no, one pound up. My heart sank... propped myself back up and recommitted, but still, why is this so hard? I guess I'll focus on staying at the lower end of my calorie limit and keep exercising but I have to admit I feel defeated.

    Welcome! Don't worry if it takes a little while before you lose weight. As NP said, it will happen! Well done on starting, although I'm a newbie to SP I've already found the community supportive and encouraging. There are some great resources here, I'm discovering something new every day, check out the articles there will be some that shed light on this for you. Good luck!

  You're not alone. Keep on pluggin. Sometimes our bodies just wanna hang on to those pounds. Don't give up! If you enter your calories daily accurately and exercise when you can, it will happen. emoticon
