I'm still battling this myself, but I refuse to give up. Keep challenging yourself to achieve your goal. Try not to over stress and forward. Best of luck to you on your journey. You will achieve your goals.
Progress may be slow, but it happens! No such thing as last place only finishers.

I find it really useful to login everyday an track my food an exercise because I think it keeps me accountable. I have also found that forgiving myself when I don't pick a healthy item has also helped me. We can do this!!!!!!!
Hi Tanika. You are not alone. I can only speak for myself, but I have lost and gained weight numerous times using different methods. But I was drawn back to SparkPeople.com.
I love this site. Reason # 1, it's free! And reasons 2-101, it offers so many ways of determining and staying focused on your weight loss goals, and this way, using Team Forums is a big reason. It's so reassuring and comforting to know there's other people like me out there. I truly feel the love. I joined in early August and only lost 13 pounds, SO FAR. But I try to eat the best I can everyday and work out everyday, except Sunday. Even God rested. The forums and the other countless ways to get support and education and suggestions are priceless. I log in everyday and track what I eat, how much I exercise and gain SparkPoints.
I wish you the best in this latest and your LAST weight loss journey!

M y name is Tanika and I have been on this site for awhile, but never really used it. I have decided to become serious about losing weight. I am focused more than ever. I lost 20 pounds four months ago and gained it all back.
