Secrets of Success

Weight Gain



I wasn't weighing myself for a couple of weeks and when I did I was amazed. I knew my jeans where a little tighter but didn't pay much attention. I have gained 7 pound and that is not good. Had banquets to go to but watched what I ate. I keep to my nutrition page and put down what I eat .

More Information:

I think I have to change what they have me down for because I have to eat more than I am use to, to cover the calories, protein, fat and carbs. Can't gain so have to change, not good.

  • Yeah, I am going to be a person that always has to keep track of my food and weigh myself, at until I really really get it down. - by BUDIES31771
  • I have 5 lbs to go to my goal weight and I use the food tracker religiously. I have also started weighing myself several times a week instead of just one. I read an article on SP about a study that was done with women - those who weighed themselves more frequently (no more than once a day of course) maintained their weight loss vs. those who weighed just once a week. - by MATMAN823
  • My Food track save's me every time TGFFJ (thank God for Food journal's. - by THEEXERCISER
  • I agree with TGFFJ! I have been journaling religiously for over 2 years now. Without it, I'd be lost! I also have the habit of weighing myself 2-3 times per week to make sure I am staying within range. I know monthly cycles affect weight gain at least a few lbs., but outside of that, I am maintaining. I would like to lose another 5lbs., but its challenging with having a full-time job and being a part-time student...then finding time for the normal, day-to-day routines! - by CYNBADGIRL
