There are so many factors to consider, are you eating enough, too much, working out too much not working out enough, drinking enough water, sleeping enough, taking in too much salt, ... the list can go on. I too have lost a bunch of weight and gained it all back but giving up is not an option. It is a matter of playing with things till it comes off again. You can do this don't give up. Just keep trying. And remember that you are not going to see results over night. Also a thing to think about how are your clothing fitting muscles takes up less space then fat so in fact you could be gaining muscle and weight but losing inches. Just a thought.

I want to thank u all . I will get over this, I know I will. I just have to find away around it. and today just isnt a day for me to deal with it. I havent talked to my husband about this . I havent told him that i have gained the weight back. I havent marked down todays weight and he hasnt asked me . Only thing my husband has told me is that I do have to eat something before we go back out there and work in the rain. I told him I was not hungry . and When I am I will eat something . My thoughts are if I cant lose the weight by eating right then Dont eat at all and maybe I will live off my fat and then I will lose the weight . at this point that is what i have come to start thinking. because I have done everything they have told me to do I work out , and I work on the farm. then there should be No reason why the weight shouldnt be coming off. I have had all the tests and everything comes back normal. So I have to ask myself a big question what the heck am I suppose to do now? If every test they have done comes back normal . If I eat right and work out and I am not a lazy person why cant I lose the weight. I have been on every diet known to man kind. I know I am over weight not that i like it but I am . Heck I would love to see my feet when I am standing. I would like to find clothes that I dont have to Cut and re do them so they can fit me right. Sucks that you walk into a store and find Plus size clothes to fit is almost a Joke. I am sure that most of you can feel my pain over that one . It is just a nightmere that i have come to this point again that I am not losing the weight and I gain it all back.
I think why I am fighting with myself so bad over this is I have a year to Not look like a round beached whale. My husband wants to take me to the beach and swim with the dolphins , but I will not put on a swimsuit cause of my size. So I am kicking myself down again.
I want the rocking bod, I want the 6 pack , not the case ... I dont like looking like an apple. "ROUND"
I know things can be discouraging sometimes, and it seems like you're suffering for nothing. But maybe you can do small changes to your diet and exercise instead of a total life style change. I am a lazy person; I will admit it. I don't like being that way, but facts are facts. I don't like to exercise; I dread getting on the treadmill. I love sweets (as I'm sure most of us on here do) and I would not be able to NEVER have anything sweet. I would fail miserably at any diet with that restriction. So, I decided that I am doing this my way. I try my best to stay in my calorie range each day, but sometimes I go over. When I want something sweet I have a chocolate push up, instead of a whole bowl of ice cream. When my mother brings over donuts, I ask her not to do that anymore, but it makes it harder. (And when I was looking at those donuts, I thought about how many calories they probably were and how long I would have to exercise to burn them off). I really don't like walking on the treadmill, but I watch TV while I'm doing it to distract me (my husband and I put the treadmill in the living room so I can't hang clothes on it & pretend it's not there). Also, I looked into other types of exercise, and I found Zumba. It burns many more calories than walking in less time. I bought the Zumba 2 game for the Wii, and I do it in the living room. And it is really fun. So, I'm finding ways to do this my way; not the way anybody else thinks I should. It may take longer, years even. But I am taking it one day at a time. I know you probably read that all over this site, but on bad days (and REALLY bad days) that's what I tell myself over and over. "This is just a bad day, tomorrow will be better." If you are not perfect, then you are normal. Just beause this day sucks, doesn't mean than tomorow will, too.

It is so frustrating to go through all that and not see results. You might want to look for underlying causes.
I think your detailed records would make a visit to a nutritionist very productive. He or she could help let you know if how you are eating is hindering weight loss.
If the nutritionist thinks you are doing great with your nutrition, having a doctor evaluate you for medical issues. I know I had a medication that caused me to GAIN over 60 lbs over 18 months. Got myself off of that one and know my metabolism isnt exactly right still after being off of it over 6 months.

When I started this weight lost kick a year ago. I was 245 pound. I didnt know what i weighted for I have been a housewife from the time I was 19. I didnt have time to step on a scale. I didnt care. I knew I had gained weight but I thought I come from a long line of big people I am going to be big. When I was 18 yrs old I was 92 lbs with my clothes on. I am talking shoes everything. in a size 0 jeans. 1st baby gained weight. after birth I was 130. I dropped about 15 lbs. then it was baby 2. gained weight like normal . when she was born i was 139.5 lbs. I had two babys and a scar from hip to hip. When my baby was about 3 months old was the 1st time in 2 yrs that I could do a sit up. I started working on getting my body back in shape. I gained some weight but I was told it not fat its healthly. OK I was in a size 9 jean. and I was told I looked GREAT!!!!! I thought cool. I have had 2 babies in less the 2 yrs. your tellimg me I look great . woot woot!!! when my youngest daughter was 3 yrs old my husband looked at me and said its time to stop working away from the home we cant afford the child care anymore. I started staying home with my kids. in one month I gained 10 lbs. and my jeans where tight. I told my husband That this is not working I am getting Fat. He told me No you are healthly. 2 yrs later I was 160 plus. moved up in size of jeans. shirts where not a med any more they where a LG. youngest daughter started school. and I was walking daily to and from the bus stop. then I got sick. after 4 months in the ICU. and 10 month on the sofa after that. I gained more weight. I was up to 200 lbs. I started at 200 lbs for yrs and year. I was find with it . my husband decides we need a change from city life to full on middle of nowhere ville. We have been here 5 yrs. in 5 yrs I have gain weight. last year I decided till to change something . I need to get healthly. I went to the doctors had all the test I could get to find out yes you are healthly other then your weight. I have loged all my food and work out for a yr. the 1st 3 months of going ot the gym and working out with a personal trainer I didnt lose weight I gain it. No not working for me. I came here to lose weight not gain it . I talked ot my doctors and they tell me I need to cut my intake down more. Ok. down to what. Im living off water, and few veggies daily. I was down to about 500 cals per day. O that didnt work, I gained more wt. I stopped going to the gym and I stop seeing the doctors. I will do this on my own. I did a restart week where i drank more then I ate. and in one week 12 lbs feel off. woot woot this is great. was great till I was allowed ot eat something . then all the 12 lbs came back and added 2 on top of that. not doing that again. I was told to get on this page and track everything i do. ok I did that . I take in about 1200 cals. I drink about 8 to 12 glasses of water . and I work out. I was down to 244.4 or something like that 9/17. today im back to 253.4. i gained all my weight back plus 3 lbs.

Don't feel like that. Sometimes we go through things that change our bodies... Sure, you may not me a zero in pants again, however, you can do this. I found myself in the same situation. I had lost over 50lbs, only to gain all that plus over 40 back. You have to find someone who will support you, and help you meet your goals by motivation and support. Please don't give up on yourself. You can truely do this... just take it one day at a time... I'm here if you need a friend!

I have been on this Crazy Diet for a yr come the 29th of Oct. I have logged everything I have eaten I have tracked what I do for the weight lose.(might not have been on this site but I have 3 notebooks of everything i have done in a yr) I was on a cloud when 1st time in months I lost some weight. Well this morning I get up use the bathroom strip all my clothes off jump on the scale. And I see something I never in a million yrs wanted to see. I gain all that weight back. I am so over it. I am done. I have not felt sooo depressed with my self in yrs. Well at this point I come to find I am just a Larger person and who cares if I am big. there is nothing I can do about it . I will never again fit in my size 0 jeans. when I look at my butt I will always have 2 . Just over it . I am done . I am not going to scale out anymore . and I am going to eat what I want. At this point I find that I cant lose weight. My husband told me he would love me for who I am . No matter what My size. I better start loving myself at this weight too. Cause I will never be small every again.
