Thank you!!! I have been off the banwagon for the last 7 months. Ended up gaining all my weight back and then some. My saving grace was that I've kept SP as my homepage, although I thought about changing it a few times. I have just decided enough is enough 1 week ago. Goal: to lost 8-10 lbs by Nov. 5th. I've also recruited a couple of other women I get along with that have simaler goals. We work out together. Thanks for all the advice will save as fav. because this article is awesome to keep in the back pocket just in case.
Have you been standing in my rearview. It seems like this was weaved just for me, or you have heard all the excuses and this is what it boils down to - LOL. Thanks Nicole for all your encouragement and for your commitment to help others. Winnie-pooh
WOW Nichole, Have you been reading my mail, hiding around the corner in my rearview, or you have heard all the excuses and they all add up to this. That's me picture perfect along with some health sidebars. Even with the health issues, I probably would be better off in my recovery if I was still on track. However, I have 7 pounds of which I was not losing while exercising 3-4 days a week and eating better foods. Thanks for all your pointers and encouragement.
WOW! This article was just what I needed right when I needed it! I got so far off track today and I felt so bad about myself. This article has helped to remind me that all is far from being lost, and that I can wake up tomorrow and do better. In fact, I'll do better now-I'm off to pour myself a glass of water.

GREAT article! I got off track for about a month; barely maintaining - maybe gained a pound or two. It was feeling impossible to resume my "program" and the advice here helped my mind-set tremendously.

I just joined Sparks on the 23rd of July. I have always been a person who is good one day and not so good for the next 3 or 4 . I just had 2 knee replacements done in November, retired from my job in March & I have a lot of weight to loose. Your 25 tips I believe has given me the motivation ti never give up. Thanks, as of today I am starting anew & I will always remember your advice.
Thank you for this article. I've been really stressed this days and yesterday I skiped lunch and ended up eating chips, popcorn and chocolate cake! But now I know not everything is lost, I'll take your advice and come back step by step.

Good stuff. I have been off point since I hurt my foot a couple of months ago (just as I was getting back on track). Now after PT and a special boot I am getting better. I am bookmarking this one. Good stuff!
