I have really been struggling with getting back on track after the accident. I started back with my workouts on Friday and really tried to be very conscious of what I ate and how I worked out including strength training but when I weighed in this morning I was back at my starting weight. Talk about discouraging. I'm not sure how to move forward from here. I really want to do this but having a husband who has IBS and suffers from extreme food sensitivity makes it hard to eat as healthfully as possible b/c he can't have all the veggies and such. I don't want to cook two separate meals but that's what it comes down to. I'm thinking that this is only way to get back on track. I had lost the weight and I want to get back there and more. I want to be back at a size that I am happy and comfortable in. I'm tired of being so much bigger than I want to be. I know that there are those who struggle more than I do but I want to be successful. No I need to be successful, my health depends on it. So it's time. I will eat better, work out, track and keep an eye on my CICO. I want those Miss Me Jeans and I will not allow myself to have them until I get to my goal. That is my reward they cost $100 and I'm going to make it worth the wait.

    You have the right attitude. Maybe you don't need to cook two completely separate meals. No matter what your husband's health issues are what ever he is able to eat has to be healthy. If he is sensitive to certain veggies and fruits maybe all you need is to an additional side dish or two. No doctor advocates junk food for any health issue. Maybe your snacks can be more veggie based. You just need to play around with meal planning until you can tweak it so you, your husband and your son are eating healthy foods that don't bother anyone's system. It will be well worth the effort for your entire family!

    Amanda- What is CICO?

    I'm lucky; I don't have a husband to worry about cooking for. I do have my 13yo granddaughter that lives with me, but she pretty much fixes her own foods except when I am having something she likes. emoticon

    I have an "easy to get along with" husband who makes his own meals and leaves healthy eating to me. It kills me to watch what he feeds himself. When we can afford it, I cook us SparkRecipes. I've managed to phase him out of white bread into whole wheat bread and he can't tell the difference between his 3.25% milk and 2% milk, so I keep buying the 2% for him, skim for me.

    I know how frustrating weight gain can be. I'd gotten down to 136 when I recently went into the hospital for 10 days where I gained 12 lbs due to a medication change. My first med change was during BLC21 where I gained 10 lbs. I managed to take that off, only to gain this round due to the same problem with meds. I ended up weighing more than I did in my initial weigh-in. Being home, I've taken off 5 lbs in 2 weeks. So, there's hope for us!

    Hang in there and NEVER, EVER give up! You're worth too much!

    I have the same problem with my husband except he just loves fatty foods so I do cook two different meals, one lighter for me and his usual! Good luck!
