So today I am opting to try spark coach. I am frustrated because I can't seem to get the scale to move. I had lost about 80 lbs on spark people after my youngest daughter was born. I felt the best I ever had in my whole life. Then I went through a very traumatic divorce, a job change, and a move all at the same time period. Unfortunately I gained almost 30 lbs back. I also think that some natural occurring hormonal changes are going on in my body too. I am 46.
None of my clothes fit so I wear sweats all the time. My confidence and self esteem are shot. I am in a situation that forces me to live outside of my authenticity.I am trying to loose the extra weight, but it isn't coming off. I am very frustrated. Exercising is harder for me now and I am not getting energized like I used to by exercising. It is very difficult to do even 20 minutes and I am so fatigued afterwards. In spite of this I am still doing it, but not seeing any weight loss. I am eating better than I was. I am staying in my calorie range. I am not perfect so sometimes I don't have exact measurements. I have been staying consistent on checking in and trying to stay motivated too.
I have been consistently working on my weight loss now for approximately 2 months. I bought the spark activity tracker to help with motivation and I have felt a bit more motivated with using it. I am going to use the spark coach for a minimum of four weeks to try and break through this plateau.
