I am back on the scale but will try my best to only weigh once a week, on Sundays.

Waist: 44
Hips: 50
Thighs: 27
Weight: 257.2

October 1st Measurements:
Bust: 48

Not a huge change, but I'll take it.

I understand how weight gain is very frustrating. I recently got off the track and ended up gaining some weight - and I was so angry! I wanted to cry, but I couldn't let that happen. I signed up with a new gym, and I've worked out the past two days, and I have (mostly) been controlling the eating. I'm surrounding myself with really positive people who will support me. The main thing I'm learning is to love myself, and I didn't realize how difficult that could be. The important thing is is not to be so hard on ourselves; everyone makes mistakes, and we must learn form them. Just make sure to take care of yourself and to take it one step at a time. :)

I'm sorry about the weight gain - I know you must be very frustrated. I wonder if you've been to your doctor to see if there's a medical reason for it (thyroid, etc.)?

At any rate, it sounds like you have a plan. Counting calories, extra fiber, and 10,000 a day sounds good.

Good luck and God bless!

I've been a member of sp and this team off and on for 3 years or so. In that space of time I've put on 25 lbs!! I had been trying to do low carb and watching the sodium and it just wasn't working for me.
So now I'm going to basically be just doing calorie counting and getting in extra fiber. And I'm going to work towards getting in 10,000 steps every day; not just twice a month when we go grocery shopping and bill paying.

CHANGING-VICKI, I'm so sorry for your disappointment this morning. As NANCYPAT1 said, it would be great to develop a plan to help you change your lifestyle and eat healthy and exercise. That's what I'm trying to do and I know it's very hard. Maybe you could plan to make a few small changes at a time so they will become a healthy habit.

I'm doing 10 minutes of exercise daily now, which doesn't sound like a lot, but it is for me.
And sometimes, it turns out to be a few more than 10 minutes (every little bit helps!) I'm also tracking my food on the nutrition tracker and looking at the report daily to see what I'm getting too much of and too little of.

I'm spending a lot of time on SP and in groups like this one so that I can stay motivated. What's your hardest challenge? Mine is to give up (or really cut down) sweets/chocolate. I also struggle with nighttime overeating, but the nutrition tracker helps with that, plus I try to get on SP and interact with others or watch music videos to distract me from eating, or go to another room (besides where the TV is) and read a good book, or go ahead and brush my teeth so I won't be temped to eat anymore that night. I have ups and downs - days when i do better than others. But thanks to Spark, I'm having more good days than bad days, now.


Good luck, and let us know how we can help! emoticon

Is this your first weigh in? What did you weigh the last time you weighed yourself and when was that? If you gained a little from last week, don't give up. Our weight will fluctuate depending on what time of the day you weighed yourself. What you were wearing, water weight can also cause weight gain. This is not a week by week weight loss program but a long term healthy lifestyle program. Use the trackers to keep track of your nutrition and fitness. Try to take one day at a time and remember we are all in this together!

Okay, you now have some data and it doesn't PLEASE you. What is your PLAN now? Do you have one that will help you to eat and exercise and take care of yourself in a healthy lifestyle change?

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.
