This back on track article really inspired me after I gained a couple of pounds over the holiday:

vation_articles.asp?id=1062

I have now pushed back those two and lost another pound. Today I am doing 15 squats at the top of every hour that I am able. I hope to get in at least 6 sets. This is fun for me and helps me with hiking and running. I want to look for some good visual motivators to keep me going through the winter months.

You rest you rust.

That is a great idea, Cindy!

If it helps you may want to start a thread on going Back to the Basics. I bet you would find a number of others on the team who would join you in a back to the basics approach to restarting their weightloss.
Then you could motivate each other.

Do not give up! Go back to the basics.

Log your food (fat, carb, protein, calories), water, moods, and exercise. Yes every small bite needs to be on the log. Do this for one week and then review everything and make some adjustments for the next week. I went up 2 pounds and it just does not want to come off. I know it is frustrating but it is only through writing down everything that we can see where the problem lies. Oh, and be sure to measure your portions!

I'm no expert, but just want to offer some encouragement. You have already proven you can do it, so don't give up no matter what. If you were less active and are now increasing exercise, you may be putting on some muscle. Muscle will help you burn calories even when you are at rest. Losing large amounts of weight slows down our metabolism for at least one to two years. Only exercise and sunshine help keep up that metabolism. Consider logging your measurements if you aren't already. Keep up the good work and results will follow. Best of luck to you -- you can do it!

You rest you rust.

Could you be retaining water and are you drinking your water? Drinking water flushes me out so that I don't retain.

It has been 1.5 yrs since surgory...overall (including preop) I have lost 120 lbs. A month ago it was 130 lbs. I put on seven lbs at Christmas...OMG! and the extra three after; even though I have stopped consuming the goodies and the wine. Needless to say, this morning I am a wee bit distressed.

Even though I consume at least eight hundred calories less then before; I have an active life...i.e. nothing has changed there; I have picked up an extra 20 min a day in cardio....what the heck?

A week later I thought I would have dropped some. What is going on????

Because He Lives, so do I!
