Well May is finished, stuck to plans most of the time but stayed the same. I am finding too much bread on my food plans each day, I think I have to cut down on the bread. I also need to be more mindful of portion size. Hoping June will be my month to lose!

Hi Katie511 and the rest, congrats to those who are having a super time and cheers to those who are struggling!

K511, it's awesome that you are keeping within your calorie range. One of the most important things to master is the ability to keep the rest of your goals on track even when you fall off the wagon with one. It's so easy to say, "Oh, I haven't been working out so what's the point, I'll eat whatever I want and start over next week." I will be the first to come forward and say I have not met my exercise goal that I set for my Fast Track. However, I have met my other two goals every day and I'm very pleased with that. I hope to get the exercise part going, but I know that my body and mind appreciate the other things I'm doing.

So keep doing the food thing, and keep posting and reading on Sparks, and the exercise will fall into place. Maybe you can open your mind to what "exercise" means. To you, does it mean a formal workout such as aerobics, strength training, etc? If you're not getting over the hump to get there, give yourself credit for the "little" exercises and build from there. Start dancing around your place to some crazy song you really like. Make yourself keep dancing for the whole song and then if you want to stop you can, because your goal was to dance through one song. Walk to the end of the block and back. If you feel like going farther once you get there, go for it...but just set a goal of going to the end of the block. If you don't do a lot, at least you know that you made a goal and you reached it. On better days you'll be stringing more of these activities together and you'll be feeling good about your achievements and will feel motivated to keep feeling good!

Well...that's my theory anyway ;-)

Great going, C.C.

I weighed in only 1.25 lbs lighter for a total of 5.25 in two weeks. The biggest thing: I've already lost 1.75" in my waist and 0.75" in my hips!

I'm doing okay. I find that I have more energy now that I'm working out and I'm not as tired during the day. I feel like I've accomplished something good when I've exercised and recorded my calories, staying in my range. But I'm just not losing weight like I think I should be. I know I'm probably gaining muscle, but I like to see the scale move. I think that I have to face the fact that I'm almost 30 and the weight isn't going to come off as easily as it did for me when I was in my early 20's.

I'm starting to lose the motivation I had when I started. I'm staying within my cal range, but only exercised 2 times since Sat. Anyone have any ideas to help me get motivated?

I am going through one of my "tired" weeks, where I have no energy at all. Trying very hard to stick to the plan but exercise is out of the question the past two days.

May is going great for me! I have been steadily exercising for almost two months and have been on Spark for two weeks now. I really love this place!

I am going out of town at the end of the month, and when looking for hotels, I made sure they had a fitness center. How funny is that?

Kutey, this is not uncommon during the first few weeks from what I have heard from my dietician. You are going to gain muscle as you start moving. Muscle weighs more than fat so you may see a gain. Don't give up!! emoticon

Not too great! I have on this for two weeks and am tracking nutrition,exercise and everything! I have not lost anything but gained 6 lbs. And I did measurements and they are the same. I am getting so frustrated cause my caloric intake is so much less and I have finally started moving but my metabolism is not kicking in. Don't know if it is the med. I am on or not but gonna ask the dr next week when I see him!
