I am not losing weight like I should be and I need to figure out why. I have my food journal from the last time I lost weight a few years ago, and I think I need to dust it off and see what I did. Seems I have forgotten how to do this. It is very frustrating to try so hard and then not see anything on the scale.

    Hang in their girl . Water may be the answer. Also maybe for a couple of weeks have spark people create the menu for ya so you don't have to think about what the menu will be for a couple of weeks . Something like taking the thinking out if the planing your own meals will free you up to just eat what Spark People customized eating plan tell you what to eat. Try it for 2 weeks and see if it makes a difference.

    It might be that your measurements are off a little bit to so try measuring for a while to get a handle of portion. There have at times where I have either overestimated or underestimation the amount a portion is.

    it might be as simple dining to much orange juice or not enough veggies.

    By the way I thing your are doing great with your weigh loss . I think we are often hard on ourselves when the scale does not show results we expect. emoticon

    Just a thought girls...are you drinking your water? Even weight watchers used to tell me that you will not lose as much without those 8 glasses a day. And it proved true!

    I am sure I read it here on spark as well.

    keep up the great work, and don't forget those non-scale victories!!

    I know exactly how you feel. I joined Sparks about 2 1/2 months ago. My first week I lost 2 lbs. and then 3lbs. Went partying and put it all back on. Spent the last month trying to get it off. Yesterday I Weighed in and I lost a pound. I'm hoping it keeps going because I'm really tired of losing the same original 5 lbs. I hung in there, so you can too! emoticon emoticon
