Hi and welcome to the team. Don't depend too much on what the scale tells you. There are other weight loss indicators that the scale can't recognize such as feeling better, having more energy, clothing fitting better, a smaller waistline measurement. All there things are indications of success in your weight loss goals that the scale can't measure. Even if you don't lose a pound, if you tre eating healthier and feeling better you are making progress. The scale will eventually catch up with you.

Hi and emoticon 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!
Good luck emoticon

welcome to the club
we all have problems with the weight loss.
Even when we behave.
We just have to keep at it and believe it WILL move eventually.
Planning is the essence and making sure you have planned in time for you

New to SP, I am a 51 year old who has committed to change my life in 2012. This is step 3 in changes I am taking on...healthier eating, weight loss and exercise. Figuring out how to work all of this. Am hoping for motivation and suggestions to get "over the hump" when things aren't always working. I am not seeing success on the scale but feel like I should.
