A small note book would probably do wonders for helping you track. Something that might help with workouts is a heart rate monitor. It has made things so much better with tracking for me. just another idea. HRM helps you personalize your information and is more precise then the calories burned on a treadmill or any other machine.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

I have a friend who pre plans a day ahead and logs everything in the evening for the next day. If it's not logged she won't eat it. I would suggest doing an Internet search for more information of the foods that are good/bad for your condition. Best of luck to you!!

A goal without a plan is just...a wish.

Thank you for your tips. I'm not sure how to change my spark page so people can see it, I haven't really done anything much except for tracking my food and exercises. Sometimes I do forget to track, and I have found it's hard to try to track it all at the end of the day. Maybe I don't exercise hard enough? Not sure. I do know that I sweat a lot though when I work out. Maybe I should try harder though? Maybe I am in excuse mode? I think I am going to get a small note pad to carry with me at all times to write down what I eat and drink that way I don't forget something. I have hypothyroidism. I have recently read that some foods are bad for that.

There are so many things that come to mind here for me. I will bring up some things to think about. How is your water intake? How is your sodium intake? How are you sleeping? Those are the main ones That I can think up right now, but I am sure there are more.

All these things affect weather you gain weight or lose weight along with how much you eat, workout, and when you weigh in. Just some things to think about and look into.

Good for you for hanging on, I tried to get to your sparkpage to see if your tracking foods but it won't let me. First I should ask if you have found what works for you? I've discovered it's usually something different for everyone. My good friend and I are so different in how we find success. I track on my phone into the spark people food tracker every time i eat and drink and exercise. This helps me huge. My gf uses sp and online weight watchers because she finds tracking portion sizes works better for her vs. calorie tracking that works for me.

Are you somehow sabotaging your success? I do this, when I see I've lost something inside me tells me its ok to skip a work out or have a small unhealthy snack. This is something that I have to always be aware of and think about food like fuel. You wouldn't pump gas in your car after just filling up right.

Have you seen your Dr. and had your blood work done? It's always good to rule out something that is making your body gain weight outside of what we put in it.

Lastly, are you pushing yourself to sweat when you work out? Just moving until your tired is not enough because your body can trick you. Pushing hard for 5 minutes on a 10 minute walk a few times a day can result in some impressive changes.

Don't give up, this is part of the battle and you can win once you know what works best for you and your body.

((((Hugs)))) stay in charge and strong

I gain one week, lose the next week, just to gain again. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I just keep going back and forth. It's very frustrating, and i'm trying not to give up, but it seems like I am failing. Can anyone please give me ideas on where I am messing up? Thanks so much.
