BETTY925, What happened to cause the change? Are you under stress? How's your sleep? Have you journaled about it?

Have a TERRIFIC day!

That's right, don't quit! Never quit! Just try to stay with it. I know it's REALLY hard at times, but just think of when you reach your goal weight, how great you'll feel about yourself. Isn't it worth it? I think so!

And if you ever need any help, just ask us, we're here to help you :)

Oh, honey, you lost 60, gained back 20--not 30 or 40! I know when my dear dad died last Sept. I just could not get my feelings under control and ate and ate and gained 20#--this is the most I have weighed and I am not pregnant! Just walk--away from that blasted kitchen that calls us and think good thoughts; I can, I will, I know I can!!!!!!! You will see those pesky pounds fall off!!!!!!YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

Look at how far you have come! Be proud!

i agree

celebrate and be proud of the 40 lbs gone!!

maybe you can slow down a little and just get comfortable "maintaining"- and then start up again and get back into the losing phase!

i may not always feel like keeping on going......but i do know i never want to go back to where i was!!

it's hard when the road is so long.........

lil baby steps is what's getting me to stay on track!

We know how you feel and we've all been there. I'm in a slump with you. Remember that having a bad day or even several bad days means just that-they were bad days. It doesn't mean that you've lost the fight. Everyone's heard that if you fall off your horse you just need to get back on and this is no different. Keep going!

It is better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you are not.

You can't escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

Don't give up! You are still 40 lbs lighter than you were....Try changing your menu. When I find myself looking for something to eat, I am usually bored with my routine! If I change what I eat, I am more satisfied. For instance, for months now I've had a slice of deli turkey and a thin, thin slice of provolone cheese on whole grain bread for lunch. It wasn't holding me anymore, not because I was hungry, but because I was bored! Now I change it every few days and maybe have a salad, or a apple, banana, peanut butter sandwich....it works to keep me going and to reduce that aimless eating I am so good at!

Start using your nutrition tracker if you haven't been, drink your water, and make small changes to start exercising. Even small changes can add up. You can do it...

It's hard staying motivated. Maybe if you change up your exercise routine or try a new food or a new recipe it will help.

I am having such a hard time staying motivated. Just thought I would voice that "outloud" so I don't stay in denial. I have gained back 20 of the 60 I lost. But I won't quit!
