Thanks! I think that I need to start reading it more often! LOL
Actually, I usually eat less calories than they suggest, rarely go over...

Eve - I love the saying after your signature and repeat that to myself when I feel like having a snack. It is SO true and it helps me.

Thanks-

Try not to get discouraged Meezer. And don't weigh yourself every day! That's just asking for trouble. I am so fortunate to be working on weight loss along with my husband. He is on a separate workout and nutrition plan, but I have taken hints from what he's doing.

First of all, we both take a day off from "dieting". Somehow looking forward to a fun day with no calorie counting helps us stick with things the rest of the week. Try for 6 small meals/day with a protein and a carb. Keep your fruit and veg goals in mind at the same time. Eventually, if you are exercising and eating the calories Spark people recommends, you WILL lose weight.

Hang in there!

I have had to stop thinking "diet" and start thinking nutrition. I have a list of things I "must eat" every day (4 vegetables, 2 fruits, 2 dairy, 1 protein), then I allow myself to eat other things if I still have calories left. I only weigh once a week and allow myself to eat anything I want for lunch on Monday (our traditional family meal out). Because I know I CAN eat outside my "diet" without feeling guilty, I tend not to. These things seem to have helped my mood. I don't lose a lot of weight every week, but I have stopped gaining and am creeping down.

That sounds like my story. My mood is always affected by the scale which makes it harder to lose weight

I saw this post on another forum & it really hit home...I think I will be a member of this one "forever"...but I think that I have to make some changes, as this does not seem "healthy". It has gotten to the point that my "mood" of the day depends on what the scale says..I would really like to reach my goal, but it seems like the harder I try, the farther away I get. Even though I eat mostly healthy & stay within my caloire range & work out, I keep gaining & losing the same 1 or 2 pounds & I am still 10 pounds away from goal.
I don't know the answer, but something has got to change!
