If there's one thing I have learned at SPARK is that having a bad day or week or month is not the end! You pick up and head the right direction again when you can. I do feel so much better though when I get back on the plan, so with repetition of this process, my month off turned into just a week off, which turned into just a day or 2!

emoticon Sometimes when the scale "stalls" I do a few days of increasing calories to "spark" up my metabolism. This seems to work. Good luck. emoticon

Walk and run to the best you you can be.

Take a week off but be mindful of what you are eating and doing or it could have some very negative results. Take me for a great example of that. I worked from Feb to May on tracking everything I ate and was pleased to have lost 13 pounds. Then I went on vacation and in 2 weeks of very little activity and just eating out and forgetting everything I learned I gained back 6 pounds in those 2 weeks. It was a very humbling experience and now I have to work at relosing the weight. ugh! I have to say I don't think my vacation from reality was worth it.

Please hang in there and keep on sparking. You are worth it and the results will be worthwhile.

This journey is all about you, you know what you need. An important note it might take the scale a while to go down. In my case it was over a month, I simply made myself a promise that I would eat for health and exercise for results for one year when I began my journey. Before the end of that year I had reached my goal. So don't get hung up on the scale, and do what you are comfortable with. Your actions are more important that the scale reading. I wish you well, on your journey.emoticon

has anyone gone through this? i just couldn't face another week of exercise, weighing everything and even weighing myself. when the scale doesn't move i get very down. so am i really bad for taking a week off from the diet. not eating junk, just giving myself a break. what does everyone think? i hope i am not the only one who goes through this.

need your help and support
