Hi, Sara and welcome emoticon I totally know what you mean about going back and forth with the weight and trying to maintain it after the loss. I have also traveled that road emoticon Here is my best advice - not complicated and it works: 1) Use your Nutrition Tracker faithfully, every single day, and check out the daily report on that page so you can make sure you are getting the proper balance of fats, carbs, and protein. This will keep you honest and accountable for your choices. Remember, it is possible to stay within your calorie range eating "junk" but that isn't going to promote weight loss and it certainly won't maintain it in the long run emoticon ; 2) Find a few exercises/activities you actually ENJOY doing and then do them 3-4X a week. If you like what you are doing the chances are much better that you will stick with it emoticon ; 3) Stay active with your Team(s) because this is the place you will get encouragement, motivation, and support - including hugs on those days when things are especially tough! emoticon and; 4) Try to have fun with this journey to slimness and better health! It's a given that if you enjoy something you will stick with it! emoticon

One last thought: it isn't important how fast or slowly you lose your weight. This is one area where 'slow and steady wins the race' is more then just some old cliche emoticon . Spark teaches you a new lifestyle and you need time to re-educate yourself and develop a new relationship with food emoticon .

Third week of 17 day diet and lost over a stone so really happy. Not too far to go now although I have two big issues to face: I know the weight loss will really slow down and that will be hard after this super fast start and also I know that when I reach my goal, or slightly less, then I must maintain and that is something I have never managed to do. Hope that with the help of Spark People I will find the strength of will to do so as I am SOOO bored with this cycle of weight loss followed by more weight gain.
