Hi Bonnie!

That's probably a good idea. Do the best you can for now and see where things land when it's all calmer.

Thanks to all...it's been over the past couple weeks, but this morning I'm back down to 170. I think it's probably a combination of stress, TTOM (which is late, probably due to stress), and kicking up my running a notch. The unhealthy foods I indulged in probably didn't help either, even if I was staying within my calories for the day...

As long as my size isn't drastically changing and I stay below 175, I think I'll cut myself some slack until things are a little quieter around here.

When you say your weight is creeping up, over what kind of time frame are you talking about? If it's within a week, it's probably just water retention due to stress and other factors. It can also go up at first when you change your eating habits.

I agree with Robin, on all bits. Don't beat yourself up over the pounds right now. Do your best to keep YOU healthy while you cope with everything on your plate - I know you've learned healthier habits!

When my mom was making near-daily 2 hour trips to visit my grandfather, I talked to her and convinced her to swap out her high calorie snacks for better options, which helped her. I also convinced her to keep a case of water in her car so it was always available... perhaps you can do that, too. The water bottle will certainly keep your hands full, either to drink or to play with!

My thoughts are with you and your family.

I am sorry to hear about your Mom and all that you are dealing with right now. I agree stress can have a lot to do with your weight gain. I too will say don't fret about it now and just stay on track as much as possible by eating as healthy as you can so you will have the energy to make decisions. You are in my prayers..u and your family and of course your Mom.

Dont fret about a couple of pounds...you can't maintain at one number and will often see ups and downs especially when you are off kilter due to life stress...could even be your snacking has added additional sodium and even the large amounts of water haven't flushed it. Just concentrate on healthy choices and being mindful and you'll see it fall back down in no time....Thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family....

Take a deep breath. It sounds like you're going through a lot right now, I'm SURE that has something to do with the weight gain. You have a lot on your plate and it sounds like eating right/exercising has taken a back seat, which is only normal. You focus should be your family right now, you can't beat yourself up for that. We all fall off the wagon from time to time, but Spark has taught us that we can get back on. Our weight does strange things sometimes, if you keep doing what you need to do I'm sure it will even out again. And just look at your spark weight meter and see how far you've come! None of us are going to be able to stick to our goal weight every day for the rest of our lives though everything life throws at us. The key is knowing that you have the tools to get back where you want to be, and a little gain doesn't mean your doomed. I hope you feel better, and my best wishes for your mother.

My lowest weight was a couple weeks ago, at 168. My goals on SP are currently set for weight loss to 165 by mid-November...however, now I'm back up to 172 :(.

I know this is the million-dollar question that gets asked 10+ times per day on SP, but why? My goals assume 1500 calories burned weekly, and I'm at that number or usually a little over depending on how far I run. I've been within my ranges for the majority of the time, usually under a couple days per week. I've been having a hard time getting my calories in on the new range, unless I eat complete junk (which has happened a couple times too.) I drink at least 14-16 glasses of water per day, more on the days I run.

Could stress play a part? My mom's been in the hospital and the prognosis is poor, and there's some other family/life issues I'm dealing with right now. My eating habits have been really strange...last night I woke up at midnight and ate a cupcake. I can't remember the last time I actually snacked at night, even before SP...and I've been craving more junk food. I've been moderately successful in dealing with the cravings, trying to find lower-cal, healthier options to indulge and staying within my SP guidelines...but the weight is creeping up, and it's starting to make me nervous. However, my measurements haven't changed at all....yet.

Any ideas?
