My Labor Day fun caught up with me on the scale this morning. I didn't expect to lose weight this week. I know I ate and drank too much over the holiday weekend. I did not; however, expect almost a 3 pound gain. Today isn't the first time I've cried after weighing myself. I would like it to be the last time though. I'm not going to beat myself up. I am going to try harder. I want this too much to continue to sabatoge myself. I'm tired of my pants being too tight and having nothing cute to wear. Today is a new day. I believe in myself. I can do this!

    Don't worry! Your attitude is great and that means all your goals are still on track. I gained 3 pounds back over a vacation just a few weeks after starting SparkPeople. Honestly, I feel like the weight fell off a lot faster than it would have if I hadn't kept up with this site. Over time, if you are really committed, you will see a downward trend in weight even with occassional slip-ups. Stay positive!!!

    I ve done this too! I decided not to weigh in until I feel my clothes looser and then weigh in.. I dont know if others would agree but I want to stay encouraged. I would love a mini goal with you to loose those 3 lbs.. I am stuck since I dont have any AF days and thats what is keeping my weight. I support you!! You can do it!! Diet Cranberry juice is a great new refreshing drink that helps with water weight too emoticon

    We've all been there. Look at it this way... now you found what "doesn't" work! You can and WILL do this! Recognizing the bad habits is the first step. Changing them, while a bit harder, follows next. You'll be wearing those cute clothes in no time!! emoticon

    I gained also. But I took it off once, I can take it off again!
    I'm sure you can too. emoticon

    I'm right there with you! I'm up almost 2lbs since last week. I have to keep reminding myself that overall I 'm still losing...Even if some of the time I'm playing catch-up! You have a great attitude and that's what's going to bring results...Don't let the scale get you down! emoticon

    emoticon It happens to everybody. Don't beat yourself up,over it. It can be a hard time on Holiday weekends, and many of us have the same problem. The important thing is to get back on track. I am sure this will be a great week for you , and you will have a loss at next weigh in. emoticon
