When the weight loss is slow, remember, (as someone just said, that you didn't gain the weight overnight and you won't lose it overnight. Also... although we would LIKE to have instant gratification, the slower we lose, the more likely it will be to KEEP it off! And it will give you more time to reinforce the GOOD eating habits you are learning!!
Congratulations! You can do it with all of us at your side. Support is always here. I have never felt so confident in loosing weight as I am with the help of all the friendly people here on S.P. Stay positive, Betty from Rocklin, Ca.
Good to hear from you too. I'm still trying to figure things out. Good luck to you on your journey too! It's not a quick process, but none of us got this way overnight either,so i'm learning to be patient.
thank you For email i am new here to spark people and i like how they have a calorie counter so i can put the foods i like in and keep track of it hope you loose the weight you desire to loose keep up the good work
That's great! Finding what works. SP has really helped me to do that! With tracking my food and nurtrients, I've found that when I eat "balanced", I'm not as hungry and don't have the cravings that I used to have (I used to have times that I felt that if I didn't eat I'd just DIE!!! And I mean... eat a LOT!!!) Thanks to SP, I find it so much easier to "say NO".
I joined sparkpeople in mid Jan. and have always had a rough time losing weight since I take thyroid replacement. This time I stuck it out with help from good people on this site,and have actually lost some. I'm going the low carb route,since I'm carb sensitive it seems, but I've added veggies and some fruit and excersise 3x a wk. for 1 hr. each time, and with the support of sparkpeople, I get through the rough spots when I feel discouraged,and that can make you or break you. Thanks to all for advice and suggestions,they really do help. good luck everyone!
