That's all I can say. Help. I'm gaining. I'm not staying the same, I'm not losing. I'm gaining. The more I do the more discouraged I become. I think I'm doing all right then jump on the scale and ta daaa UP! It's very depressing and I actually found myself in tears the last "weigh in." I need hope. I need prayer. I need something. I need to stop eating. I need to get honest with myself on why
nothing is working. I try to eat right, and try to eat less. For snacks I'll have an apple, or a cut up cucumber. But that's just it. I have those things and more.
More. More. I have a wedding to go to in October, and I do have a dress I'm hoping to wear. But I don't even know at this point if it fits. I don't dare try it on, but know I need to soon. I'm afraid. I'm very discouraged and don't know what to do next.

    Wow you are going through alot here - and sad to say, but I've been there. First are you really tracking what you are eating? every bite? it works - trust me - if you eat it log it - write it down - then are you really eating enough? I know it sounds stupid - but if you are working out and aren't eating enough to keep your "fire" going (aka your metabolizm) if you don't eat enough then your body will hold on tight to the weight, and sometimes make you seem like you are heavier than you are. and the last bit of info - how is your sodium intake??? I found when I was stuck that my sodium was off the charts - I didn't even think to pay any attention to that because I was paying attention to my calories. that sodium will make you retain water and that will weight you down - make sure you are flushing your system with atleast 8 glasses of water a day - it will make a difference for you. so don't you dare give up on me yet!!! you can do this - I believe in you and now the hard part - you have to believe in yourself!!! feel free to contact me if you have any questions or just want to chat. I'm here for you, and you will look fantastic in that dress.

    The only way I can stay on track is to be rigid. I have a very short list of ingredients that I can use to make meals and snacks. If it's not on the list, I don't eat it. Every couple weeks I'll add something else.

    It's boring but it works for me.

    Hang in there - you'll find what works.

    Take the measurements - the dress isn't solely fitted by your weight - you could be losing inches and not pounds!! Remember that muscle weighs less than fat. Try on the dress and see how it fits.
