Wow - Revelation!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, January 23, 2013




I have been a SparkMember since 2007. I have used the "weigh in" feature sparringly but overall its been consistent on an annual and sometimes semi-monthly basis. Anyway, today was the first time ever that I ran a chart from 2008 - current to see my fluctations..truly astonishing. I noticed that quite simply, my peaks of weight gain come in the winter (what a surprise! :) and when I go on a run and drop pounds it comes in the summer. Seeing this is such a motivator for me because I am actually making progress right now (10 lbs lost since Jan 1) during a normally challenging time. If I can make it through to Spring losing weight gradually than - if 5 years of history repeats itself - I will really kick it up a notch and drop lbs when the weather heats up.


I'm excited!

    It sounds like the graphing really helped you to see where your problem areas were and how to fix them. Awesome you figured it out and are now seeing cool results! emoticon

  Wow - lots and lots of fluctuations. I think a chart like that would be very useful for lots of people. I am not good enough with computers to do one for myself that way, but I may just do one by hand.

    Wow! I wish I had found SP back in 2007 it would have saved me from regaining 30 lbs. I love this site for the insight it has given me into my nutritional needs as well as all the tracking that has helped me to understand how my body responds to different times of the month. I discovered that I always ate more on the first Friday in a 28 day cycle!??! Knowing that has meant that I can plan for that day emoticon

    Winter is tough for a lot of us so you have every right to be excited when you make progress at this tough time. Then looking ahead to what you can accomplish this summer? Go get 'em!

    Reports like these always help to put things in perspective. This is a great tool to help aid in your weightloss plan and knowing where you tend to lose steam will be a great motivator for your 2013 goals. Keep up the hard work, I too am down 10lbs this month and I know it's not an easy or by any means fun road.
