I also weigh myself quite often (daily). I am not one to freak out over the numbers, so it's not causing anxiety or distress. I've been hovering in a same range for a few weeks, but I know I am not managing my eating enough. I am heavier than I want by 35-40 pounds but I know why.

It could be that the calories counts are not very accurate on those machines, there are so many factors that the machines can't adjust for. You could do a trial run of eating less in the evening for a few days and see how you feel and what the scale says.

My latest challenge is finding out how accurate the calorie count is on the health center fitness equipment is. I input my weight and age so I have been told the count should be close to what I actually burn. The problem is, those calories get added on to my daily allowance and I have been trying to get in at least the lower limit each day. Since I often work out in the evening, by the time I track for the day, it is fairly late so I am eating quite a lot at the very end of the day. I shouldn't be peeking, but I have been weighing myself every time I work out (it is part of what needs to be entered on the cardio equipment) I can't help but notice that there has been no weight loss at all so far this week. emoticon


Time to start again!

I'm right there with you! Lost 50 pounds working with a nutritionist and gained 60 back. Wasn't bothered by it too much until the aches and pains started back up and remembered how good I felt when I was thinner. I'm looking into anti-inflammation eating plans.

I am in a similar situation. I got down from 175 to 135 and thought I had the diet thing licked. Then a couple of issues with my feet kept me from getting my exercise and my job took over my life. I ate fast food on the run and sat around feeling sorry for myself when I wasn't at work. I just gave up. By the time I woke up to what I was doing I was up to 160!
Now I am retired and have no excuse. I have been getting cardio in as often as I can and am working on doing strength training a couple of times a week. I was tracking everything I ate but got derailed by a couple of parties. Today I am trying to recall what exactly I ate and to plug as much as I can into my tracker so I won't hose up all the reports.
I have struggled with my weight all my life and I can tell you that no diet works. The thing to do is change your eating habits. I find that sticking to the recommended ratio of carb-protein-fat really helps me to feel satisfied with the food I eat. I track every single thing I eat and then pour over the daily feed back and full report to see how close I came. Over time, I really do start eating that way out of habit. The thing is, I can eat a cookie or two IF I TRACK IT but after a few weeks of eating right, I find that I no longer crave the constant stream of carbs that I used to.
Are you eating the suggested meal plan or do you decide what to eat and then track it? If you need help figuring things out, you could send me a message or sparkmail your questions. I've been away for awhile and am still getting used to the way things have changed. The practice might do me good.

Time to start again!

Hi my name is Rocita Martinez,

I am looking for a program that does not require me to pay before they can give me any information up front. I am also looking for a workout program that will not aggravate my back, knees, and ankles. I want to loss 50 lbs and maintain from that point. I started September 2014 to April 2015 got down to 220 lbs. drank no sodas, ate no cookies, chips, or candy watched what I ate and how late I ate. Had shoulder surgery 4/14/15 and was on medical leave for 3 months, no walking or anything and my diet just went right out the window. I am back up to 238 and I am not happy about that. I want to get back to where I was without all the gimmicks and the cost that comes with it.

Thank you for listening to me.
Rocita
