Nia, welcome!

Yes, forget the scale. Measure yourself, which is a better way of tracking progress, especially if you are prone to plateaus. Measure yourself everywhere! Look for sites that may help you with this, but do write down all your numbers... I like centimeters, because they show lots of number changes, which I find very encouraging.

I myself returned two months ago, and though I've only lost 4 lbs in the first month and have not lost any weight since then, with the help of the strength challenges I've lost centimeters in the last 4 weeks, all over my body. This keeps me going, because I can see the change in my shape, though the scale marks no changes.

I encourage you to start as soon as the doctor gives you the go ahead!

Welcome!

I was away this year due to a miraculous pregnancy and am currently recovering from an emergency C Section. I will get doctor sign off Oct 19, but as of January when I go back to work I won't be able to fit in my gym time.

Can Project Mayhem workouts get me down in body fat, and back in shape?

Can SparkPeople actually take weight off? I was in a plateau for 2 years - and rarely are over my spark numbers (often below) and exercised alot. I got pregnant on my own without trying with PCOS after 13 years of marriage, but I never lost weight.

So forget the scale - can it help me fix my pregnancy-ruined body?

See you in January! Until then, I'll be around, check my Spark page for updates
