I am so disappointed in my lack of progress losing weight. I was going through some old notes and I have gained 15 pounds. the one good thing is I still exercise. and track food

one thing I have said several times to my supervisor is that I am tired of hearing what is wrong with me. I have heard that so many times in my life -- what is wrong. what is right with me?

I am not glad that I have sleep apnea -- like I told my supervisor, it is just one more thing that is wrong with me. How and why I feel this way is a long story. But if this c-pap machine will help me sleep and lose weight I am willing to pay for it

went to WW today -- up .80 of a pound. I keep gaining and losing the same 2 pounds. I don't eat that much -- about 1400-1500 calories on a bad day want to get that down to about 1200 calories a day.

well, I went to a neighbor who is a retired dietician and I went to the dietician at my medical clinic and they both gave me those numbers as ranges. Right now I am eating the calories spark people recommended (about 1300 calories a day and 150 carbs per day_ and am staying the same

Gosh, that's a low number. Did you figure it out yourself or did Spark suggest that range?

Hi! I'm glad to see your update. Well done with the exercise.

Can you see where those 100-200 extra calories are, and make any exchanges to bring it down enough to get things moving for you?

I can't be bothered to track calories - do you? If so, you should be able to see clearly where the excess is?

I went swimming today. I want to try Xabeat again. they dance to the lights off and I hate that. any way exercise is one thing I do right. I get 4-6 days of exercise every week. I eat about 100 - 200 calories per day more than I should and that is what is stopping me.

Some people say tell them; some say don't tell them!

You've already told them - so, now, prove them wrong! You go and lose those 90lbs - however long it takes - and enjoy your smaller body!

I have been told that it is good to tell people that you want to lose and how much--that is what keeps you on track. However, it may be that you have to talk to people who have the same goal you have -- the gola of losing weight.

I found I did better when I didn't tell anyone!

A few years' ago I had my friend telling me she was worried about me losing so much weight (I lost about 14lbs). I put some of those pounds back on. When I lost them, gradually, over the past two years, she didn't notice!

Being sneaky about it is quite fun!

thanks for the suggestion --- Rosh Hashanna is the Jewish New Year. Mike and Michal are my brother and sister in law -- my husband's brother and his wife. I told my husband after dinner that we should invite them to our house as we were going home

Hi! I'm not Jewish, so don't understand the significance of the events you are mentioning, but I am sad that you are feeling like second-class citizens. Maybe tonight you can invite them to your house next time. Make your wish come true!

Tonight is Rosh Hasshannah. of course we are going to Mike and Mahals house for dinner. as usual. for the past 15 years we have done this. they have only been to our house a couple of times for dinner. this bothers me--it is as if we are second class citizens or something. I wish they would come to us.

I decided that I am going to keep a journal once again under my new name with spark people. Today I weignt ot Weight watchers and am at 212.6. I don't think that is good. I don't know how much I weighed when I first started losing but it had to be at least 250 pounds, and I am 5 foot tall. I probably weighed more. but this weight is going to come off me. so today is my first day of my new me
