It'S Ok To Go Backwards


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Any weight loss journey is a tough prospect - even more so if it is a lifestyle change. It's easy to get blinkered, and expect the weight to continuously fall off. Thing is, that doesn't happen. You'll gain back a couple of lbs every now and then, and thats ok! you've learned a ton, apply those lessons

Even after dropping 60lbs, I still occasionally put on 5 or 6 lbs here and there. Rather than losing heart, I use my new found fitness and motivation and work those lbs off again. This is now my life, and there is room for small gains and small losses in the grand scheme of things!

    My husband swears on the idea that you go through every pound and never skip any. My problem seems to be that I go through them more than once!

    With this, a person must really be confident in what they are doing and have the change ingrained in the psyche because when you gain pounds you can get discouraged.
