I would encourage you to ditch the scale for a while. I've been on SP for 3 1/2 years. I lost 90 lbs and like you had setbacks - shoulder surgery, husband had cancer, mother in law passed etc. etc. I gained about 15 lb. Those 15 have been harder to lose the second time around.
What I realized is that life happens everyday. It isn't an option for me anymore not to be committed. I surrounded myself with people who hold me accountable. I teach a boot camp once a week so that group of ladies depends on me. I started a Women Living healthy care group for my church that meets once a week and those ladies depend on me. I'm in a 10 min a day exercise challenge group that requires us to post on our group FaceBook page daily. So literally on a daily basis I have people checking in with me to see how I did. That level of accountability works for me.
I know that if I eat right, drink my water, and workout that in the end I will be in shape no matter what the scale says. That scale number can fluctuate as much as 7 lbs in a day depending on our water intake, sodium levels, inflammation etc - and that really doesn't reflect how your body is on the inside. Give yourself a break from living up to a number and just live - the healthy way. It will all work out.
