Ok here goes. I have been on another plan since Jan. 2018. It took awhile but I lost 16 pounds and was very proud of myself. I had just a couple pounds to go and I started getting comments like you look so skinny. Why would you want to look like ? I was nowhere near too thin as I was right in the middle of my weight range. This happened everytime I went in to teach a class. I let this get in my head and I subconsciously slipped. I gained back 6 pounds that I cant seem to shake. My life is very high stress. I found myself reaching for food for comfort.. My mom passed away just a month ago. I am trying to exercise more as this makes me feel better. Any advice Spark People?

    Take time to grieve and keep your best interests at heart. You have to deal with the loss of your mom before you can direct your attention to your weight loss. Don't let it bottle up in you talk with someone close about your feelings. Get a weight-loss buddy and don't go through this journey alone.
