Believe it or not, I first started noticing my weight gain right around the time I had to start putting my Senior Art Show together last year. I had to get everything together in less than a month and I would be graduating only a week after I got the art show finished. I started stressing out like crazy. The day of the art show I tried on the dress I had planned on wearing and realized a few bulges in the tummy and it was tight around the arms. It's been a year now since I graduated and about 2 weeks ago, I weighed myself for the first time. Needless to say, I was surprised to learn that I had gained over 60 pounds since last May...very depressing. But then I found SparkPeople not too long after weighing myself, and with some advice from tons of people up here, I'm on my way back to a healthier life. I've lost 14 pounds in about a week and a half. Hoping to continue the success. emoticon

Good luck, Kennesis!! I'm at a plateau, too. I'm only a couple pounds less than I was in January, but at least I'm not gaining any. Last year I gained back almost 25 pounds of the 40 I'd lost the year before. I wanted to lose those 25 pounds again, but 15 is probably more of a realistic goal in time for Halloween now.

Congratulations on feeling the best you have in years, Paintalot.

For what it is worth, I have noticed that I can gain and lose as much as 7 or 8 pounds (according to my scale) just from morning to night time. I have even noticed that when I work out I can drop a couple pounds in an hour. Probably water. The place where I started really noticing some weight loss was when I started going to a new belt loop hole. I think Winston had it right, thanks for the quote. I also have hit this spot where I am not losing as much as I was before even though I have been working out harder. I am just excited that I can workout harder. I haven't felt this good for quite a few years now.

The 3 extra pounds? I guess they were a fluke 'cause they're gone. But now the scale won't move an inch. I guess I'm at a plateau which completely sucks. But I tried the incline treadmill today which is very different than my regular cardio and I'm hoping it will kick start my summer of major weight loss. My goal by Sept./Oct. is 180/175 which I think is very reasonable. Wish me luck!!!
I must say it's been very hard not giving in completely and pigging out. I just have to remember that success means never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever give up. That's a quote from W. Churchill I think.

This is possible.

You're welcome, Paintalot!

What happened with those three extra pounds, Kennesis, were they just a fluke? I'm debating on whether to weigh in tomorrow or not ... I'm afraid I may have gained since last Tuesday. I've had a cold and haven't been able to exercise at all. Le sigh.

You guys are amazing! Thanks for your stories. And wow, the talent out there is so inspiring.
I need all the help I can get today as I stepped on the scale this morning I had 3 extra pounds - since the morning before!!! How is that even possible. I didn't pig out or anything. And to the gym I go!

This is possible.

Thanks Aquariann
Sounds and looks like your doing all the right stuff to get to the next level. Just keep working and it will grow ever year. Before you know it you'll have a hard time keeping up.

Wow, your name is no joke, Paintalot - 27 paintings is a huge amount in 4 months!! 25 pounds lost ain't so shappy, either ... way to go!! :D

I finally got the courage to get a business license this year. I'm hoping I'll make enough money this year to warrant one. I'm trying to move away from the "hobby" category. ;D

I would love to hear some success stories out there. Even the small ones do so much to inspire me. It makes me believe in this healthy living thing on a daily basis.

Here's your chance to brag, pat yourself on the back and inspire others.

Thank you! emoticon
