Don't get discouraged Vanessa the same thing happened to me it will even back out if everything is on point just keep pushing!

If your feeling frustrated there are a few things you can check to make sure your on the right track

Are you tracking? Make sure your not going under or over your calories but also look at more than just calories. If your not getting enough protein or are getting too many carbs that can affect it as well. Watch sodium as it can cause water retention. I try to eat as clean (no processed foods) as possible which helps with the sodium intake.

Are you drinking enough water? Make sure you're getting in around 8 cups a day it matters more than you think.

Are you mixing up your workouts? Are you doing cardio and strength training? Have you been doing the same workout for a long time? Try something new and see if it can get things moving in the right direction

Other than that are you getting enough sleep? Are you stressed? Are you on any kind of medication/bc that could be affecting how you lose?

If you can look at this list and honestly say your eating is perfect, you're workouts are intense and varied, you drink so much water you live in the bathroom and you still don't see the scale moving I would say are you seeing inches lost, feeling better, having more energy ect? Weight loss can be more than just lbs lost on the scale don't forget to celebrate all the victories not just the numerical ones. And if after saying your on track with all of the above but not losing inches or pounds for a long period of time I would say maybe make an appointment with your doctor there might be an underlying issue.

But long story short just take a real good look at what your doing, sometimes I think I'm doing great but when I stop to track I see I'm missing out on veggies and getting too much fat or carbs or even no eating enough calories. Sometimes it just takes a little self reflection to get yourself back on track. Good luck!

Life happens, just get back on track today and don't let the weekends over indulgences get you down. Chances are it didn't affect your weight much

I am making it my goal until the end of july to track every single day no matter how bad my eating was and to get in a daily workout no matter how short those are two small achievable goals that I think will make a big impact

We didn't have a holiday, but I visited my aunt in another country and didn't eat very healthy most times when eating out at this great restaurant. But it was so good! And it isn't so horrible, because I visit her only 2-3 times a year. :)

Hi all! I'm getting back on the wagon. Today I've managed to review my SparkPeople account and get going on some teams. I've done my morning workout and bumped it up to 2 sets and didn't slow down in between activities. Did not release how out of shape I've let myself get until I was huffing and puffing just doing a simple workout. Anyway just wanted to say hi and get active on the team.

emoticon Hi everyone! I hope you are having a good day. My day always starts off sluggish for I have to be up at 3:45 am and at work by 4:45 am. I have been eating healthier, exercising at least 5 days a week along with me constantly moving for about 4 to 5 hours at work. I am tracking my steps to keep up on my fitness tracking. I have decided to get up and move around when I start to feel tired or bored. It keeps me motivated when my 6 year old tells me that I am slow. LOL

OTL I knew I was doing bad, but I only just realized how bad. A year and a half ago I was at 205, my lowest weight since before high school, the weight in which I was no longer obese. And now I am back at 235, only slightly lower than my starting weight 4 years ago.

I'm learning that measuring and tracking what you eat really does work! Why didn't I listen to that advice ages ago!? Better late than never! Did anyone else have an "ah-ha" moment and then immediately face palm because they were given that advice before but it fell on deaf ears?

Good morning! I am noticing more energy in my life since I have been making small changes. I am not perfect (nor do I ever plan to be) but I feel a lot better now that I wake up with a plan for my day! A little bit of a change really IS better than doing nothing! I hope you are all having a great day too!

Can you have lemon in your water? It's really the only way I can drink water.

Have you tried turkey burgers? We eat them without the bun. They're quick and yummy! My friend brings them for lunch.

What kind of things are you eating violetmeadows? Maybe we can give you some ideas so you can get a little variety my lunch today is pretty much carb and sugar free I'm having turkey, cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers on two large pieces of romaine lettuce and a hard boiled egg breakfast I had 2 eggs scrambled with onions and peppers dinner I'm having homemade veggie soup and a baked sweet potato my snacks in between unfortunately are fruit and nuts so that doesn't help you much do you like stir fry? You could do a bag of mixed veggies and some chopped up chicken sauteed together with some braggs amino acid that would be a yummy dinner we usually do that with quinoa. How long do you have to go low carb? 20 carbs a day is a pretty extreme amount to do for any length of time!

For Easter my mother gave me an average sized chocolate bunny. Not immature just tradition. :P I actually took one bite off of it for a day until it was gone. That way I could be sure to work off all the calories I got from it which done that way, weren't that many at all.

I made whole wheat m&m pancakes yesterday for my kids... I get it. Easter is making it exceedingly rough for me. On a "brighter note" I just ate the rest of the Easter bread, so at least it's not there for me to eat anymore. emoticon

Hi, my name is Emily.....and I live in the south east side of the U.S. I find it very hard to lose weight when I live in a big city...and also, not all the roads I travel down have sidewalk. I am a cashier for a thrift store and that keeps me on my toes. On other days, I am playing catch-up on house work. Today, I just started adding in a fitness routine before work.
The hardest part about a rotating shift during the week is that I can't exercise at the same time everyday. It's a real stumbling block but I am working on it.
My fiance suggested to me that maybe I should change some of my breakfast options to meats and soups...instead of sugary oatmeal.
I do not believe being active every day is a bad thing. I believe the only way to lose weight is to learn to make healthier meals and keep pushing your body in different ways through exercise.
By the way, I will be turning 29 in a week (yah!)....so, I am quite freaked out about how much I weigh. According to BMI, I need to lose 50 pounds. If anyone has some similar goals or just wants to team up so we can help each other, please email me because I'd love to have an accountability partner.

Here's to us losing weight!

@JAZZYISHERE I can only speak for myself on this, but I tend to have better results or weight loss momentum if I exercise every single day, on rest days I still do at least a 15 minute walk which some call an "active rest" day, even if it's just around my backyard or to a Leslie Sansone video. I think it gives the metabolism a little extra boost if I do something every day. The main reason I actually exercise every day is it helps me stay motivated, for some reason I lose motivation after a day that rest/don't exercise, because the next day when I exercise I feel fatigued.

Thanks guys, sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I got off track for a little bit all things considered. Long story short, it took me about 5-6 weeks to feel comfortable to really exercising again since the surgery, aside from 15 minute walks the first few weeks which I bumped up to 30 minutes since then. I am up to 219 pounds right now, was 10 pounds heavier from the surgery but I lost it as the gas and swelling worked itself out. I've been working out more the past couple weeks, having a little trouble finding that dedication I had last year to stay on a wholesome diet every single day but have found my will power the past few days and I stick to it best as long as I keep counting my calories, and being honest with myself. I have committed to a spin class, today was my first day, I was pouring sweat by the end of class, it was more fun than I expected, quite an endorphin rush afterwards as well, more so than when I do aerobics which is interesting.

And, well done everyone that has been staying on track and focused!

Try switching up your workouts and see if it gives you a little nudge. Might be all you need.

How tall are you? sounds like you may be eating too few calories for the exercise you're doing.

My name is Jael, and lately I've been trapped in a plateau for going on two months. I've been going back and forth between 188 and 192, and I can't seem to get any lower than that. However, I have been sticking to it and I'm just not sure what I have to do to break out of it. I work out pretty hard 4 times per week, and depending on exercise I eat 1200-1600 calories per day.

Finding my new job both great and stressful at the same time, we are a close knit group so whenever someone brings in candy or chocolate they tend to like sharing... I've been testing my will power and it's been pretty difficult, I haven't said no to everything and I hope this hasn't been causing too much a shall in my weight loss efforts. I do walk to and from work but not enough to drastically allow me to eat anything I want. I have found that eating 1,550-1,650 calories per day hasn't been decreasing my weight any considering it tells me that to maintain I'd have to consume 2,050. I put myself in a 400-500 deficit each day without much changes, being around 200 pounds has really been kicking my arse lately.

Hey new to the group, but just needing some accountability as I'm trying to lose 50 lbs by August 31st.

I'm following along to the Blogilates beginners calendar right now and trying to run 3 times a week or more if I can!
I did my pilates tonight but no run today. Although I ran yesterday!

welcome Ericka, congrats on the 3lbs

MALACHAISMAMA- your not undoing all your hard work, you might be putting a small dent in it but really it takes 3500 calories to gain a lb and thats on top of the normal calories your body needs daily to function its highly doubtful that you could ever get that much in one sitting lol if you see your weight go up its probably just from consuming high sodium foods and then retaining water maybe next time try to bring a veggie tray or other healthy snack so you have at least one healthy choice to snack on drink lots of water while your there it will help flush to the sodium and will keep you fuller so your less likely to go way overboard. Small indulgences don't really derail us and its not good to be too restrictive but there are ways to balance them out. Good luck!

Strive for progress not perfection!

Oh boy, as I'm sitting here relaxing with my two little ones I just realized that Saturday nights undo all of the work I've accomplished during the week emoticon . My husband and I host a game night every Saturday and there is only one other person on a weight loss journey, and he is out of town for a month. He also happens to be my accountability buddy and running partner.

Somebody always brings at least one dessert, somebody else always brings not so healthy munchies, we take turns making dinner, and there is always drinking involved. With all of that going on it makes real hard to stay on track and making the right food choices

I was trying some yoga for it, but it just seemed to make it worse. As did my physical therapy. I have to watch with the yoga, too. I notice most things are contraindicated for my migraine condition and for anyone taking blood pressure medications.

Live life to the fullest, baby steps lead to bigger steps which lead to walking then fast walking then to running, which ultimately leads to making leaps and bounds! :)

Hey Audrey, Aubrey here. Maybe you can do some light yoga to help work out the kinks in your back. Apple has a good yoga app that has short routines for beginners. Just suggesting because it's really helped me out.

Ugh... past 2 days I was so sick and taking care of sick kids. Today my back is killing me and I have some weird charlie horse thing going on. My grandfather and aunt are still sick, so fingers crossed it doesn't come back around.

I definitely know how you feel, and I wish you the speediest of recoveries! Injuries and illnesses are hard because we have no idea why they happen, and they are rarely at any sort of convenient time. I'm in the same boat with you, my friend.

As someone else said, do what you can, as you can. Don't push too hard too soon, take it easy and allow your body to heal. Let me know if you need anything!

The important thing STARSLOBBER is that you had it taken care of. Appendicitis is nothing to fool around with. Don't over do it. Do what you can, as you can. And just just keep a positive attitude!

On New Year's Eve I developed pain in my abdomen, was very sudden and honestly felt like really bad cramps. Early morning New Year's Day it was bad enough that I went to the ER. After hours of blood, urine, and CT scan tests the doctors discovered I had appendicitis. I was able to have an appendectomy within a few hours of diagnosis and thankfully my appendix was removed before rupture. I am on a lot of medication and doctor said it would take about 6 weeks to heal, and to not lift more than 15 pounds during this time. I CAN'T CATCH A BREAK!! I was so set on exercise and building up my endurance, to get back and stay on track to start the new year off strong, only to have this happen. It's going to take me months to get my energy back to where it was just a few days ago. Trying to look on the brightside but its hard at this time, only positive I can see during this situation is that it has physically forced me to eat lightly, the surgery was laparoscopic meaning the filled my abdomen with gas etc but that gas will take a couple weeks to be fully expelled so movement and eating more than small meals is painful. Also helps to count my calories and watch what I eat as to how I feel and recover each day.

So far today I'm being pretty lazy emoticon I'm watching my daughter play Sesame Street games on the Wii. Still trying to wake up. It's been a long couple weeks and I'm pretty wiped out. Also, I'm sore from the squat challenge. I must be getting old because the squats are getting harder than they used to be.

I've been in this group for..years.. and have finally got around to checking it out! I am a 22 year old teacher who has approximately 50 pounds to lose. I am entering a weight loss competition which has enabled me to jump back on the wagon, but also I've been feeling a bit depressed lately and I think getting healthy is the answer! Good luck everyone! emoticon

My accomplishments today - Started the 31 day squat challenge, Started the January Jump-start Challenge, and played Just Dance for 10 minutes. I would like to have done more, but I spent about 70% of my day with a baby emoticon latched on to me. Poor teething baby.
