    You could have gained a lb due to muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat. Just keep moving forward and continue making healthy choices. You can do this!

    Hi, I was recently in your exact same mental space -- wanted to, but couldn't/wouldn't make a meaningful move towards a goal, any goal. I know how hard it is. In 2010, I was on a good roll, then my dad got sick and passed away (cancer too). I was good right up til after the funeral and then I fell off the wagon . . . with a thud, actually. I stayed off till the end of last year. It took me that long to get it together. One of the main reasons I couldn't get it together was because there was no clarity about what was to be gained from putting in what seemed like a gargantuan effort to lose the weight. To me, the end goal just seemed overwhelming. It might as well have been Mount Rushmore. I wrote down all of the reasons why losing the weight was important on a piece of paper. There were some really good ones. In fact, most of them were really good ones. Then I shuffled my butt over to my laptop, opened it and joined Weight Watchers online and also came back to Sparkpeople. Your best motivation is already inside of you. I've read this quote a lot since I've come back to Sparkpeople and restarted my weightloss journey and it goes something like this: Losing weight is hard, staying fat is hard -- choose your hard. Read The Daily Spark blog, there have been many articles recently on staying motivated. Maybe that could be a goal. Or setup Sparkstreaks in your tracker for small goals. The longer you keep to anything, the more motivated you will be to keep those commitments. If you need a little accountability, join a team or just keep in touch. Good luck! emoticon emoticon

    Hi! I just stopped on your page to say "HI" and welcome you to Spark. I tend to do that to folks I find on the new or newly re-active page. You're in the right place to reach your goals, but promise that you'll stop in every day and log your water, log your veggies and fruit, log your food, log your exercise, and read, and post, and log your water, and write on someones page, and read some more, and blog, and log your water, and LEARN that you are not alone, anlog yd we're all right here with you! Did I mention that you should log your water?
    WHEW! Ok, I know you're overwhelmed getting to know this site, but use those buttons up there, especially the MY TOOLS drop down list, and then either the START or MY SPARKPOINTS. Both of these helped me gain momentum and meet new friends.

    Speaking of meeting new friends, this place is like a cocktail party. If you stand in the corner, you won't have as much fun. Make eye contact (or in this place, leave a message on someone's page, or add your opinion to the bazillion conversations going on) to say HI, and you'll meet new friends quick. Explore, learn, and never be afraid to reach out for help. We're all in this together!

    Success is inevitable!
