May update-

Still gaining pretty steadily. When I got on the scale the other day--I had reached 30 pounds over my goal weight :( I'm not excited about this, because I don't like the trend that seems to be developing. I know I'm not eating as strictly as I once did, and I'm not exercising as vigorously as I have sometimes in the past, but I am still making good food choices, and I don't feel like I'm eating way out of range all the time. I also stay at least mildly active--getting in at least 40,000 steps in every week, and that has been going up lately as I've become more active with the warm weather. School is out for the students on Friday this week, and for staff on Monday next week, and I'm looking forward to that! Can't wait to get outdoors and get my hands in the dirt! Right now....I'd just like to focus on ceasing the upward movement of the scale. It's still really hard not to be discouraged when a year ago I was 30 pounds lighter! Some days the frustration of not knowing exactly why it's become so difficult and not knowing what exactly to tweak to get it corrected gets pretty high, and then I know I'm prone to emotional eating. Glad I've got my super supportive family, friends, and Spark community! I've had to replace most of my summer clothes (up about 2 sizes). It's not that I'm unhappy with the size that I am, but I don't want to keep gaining. I am a little less physically comfortable at this weight, so I feel like this weight is too heavy for me.
Have a great day!

    Keep pushing. I am reading a book called "Eat Q" it is helping with the emotional eating.

    Don't look at the big picture! Set yourself small goals....5 pounds at a time! It's really important to track your food and plan your meals ahead! Remember this is not a sprint it's a marathon! Sending you lots of hugs!

    Ditto! Good luck with the tweaking. I know when I track again where the extra comes from. If I don't track I just don't see it. I WISH I could judge better but my brain just doesn't have this software loaded. I'm scared I will reverse all my hard work as well. Saying that I bought a treadmill to help with the exercise so I should go spend 30minutes on it right now!
