Sometimes when we think we should be losing and aren't, there is something sabotaging our efforts that we can't see immediately. I went through that for a very long time and then when I came back to Spark in May, I started looking at my daily report that you pull from the Nutrition Tracker page and what I found was that I was not getting even close to Spark's recommended values of proteins, carbs, and fats for me. I was eating way too many starchy carbs. I made some adjustments and now I'm doing pretty well. Spark really works and the tools are great. The Nutrition Tracker is my lifeline because it keeps me honest and accountable for my choices. I use it faithfully, every single day. Exercise is easy once you find a few exercises/activities you actually enjoy doing - then it isn't a struggle to do them 3-4 X a week. So, I guess what I would suggest you do is to 1) use the Nutrition Tracker faithfully; 2) do some enjoyable exercise/activity 3-4X a week; 3) stay active with your Spark Teams because that will give you motivation and encouragement, as well as support when you need it, and; 4) have fun with this because that makes it work!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He wlll make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
