There was a time I weighed every morning. It helped me identify foods that caused me to retain water and effect my weight for up to 3days. The best thing ive learned here is the scale is the least reliable tool to use to measure healthy changes while loosing weight. Hang in there!

I'm taking it one day at a time. Been holding my own so I don't understand the gain I saw today. Hoping it's just a fluctuation.

Thanks ladies! I appreciate all the support here. Also, there is nothing like a health scare for motivation --- which is sad to admit. I'm hoping if I am diligent, my pre-diabetes will retreat back to normal status. I am going to aim for an 8lb loss for July.

Have a great week, everyone! Good luck with your goals and adventures.

I just keep moving even if I just get up and walk around for a few minutes, but I do it every hour or two. This in addition to whatever exercise I do.

8-9 pounds sounds good to me! I am at three right now. If I make to 4 by the fourth it will be because I caught some kind of bug yesterday. You cant exercise when your sick......but at least you dont eat either. Lol

Oh, I'm happy today. The beets in my garden needed to be thinned, so I've got a pretty good- sized bunch of FRESH beet greens that I'll sauté in coconut oil and eat for lunch.

I need to step it up because July 4 is right around the corner ... The one pound I've lost so far is a step in the right direction, but I think I need to either 'lengthen my stride' or 'quicken my pace' ...Maybe both 😎

I'm still here! I have maintained between 27 - 30 pounds lost for about 18 months, but it's time to get to work and lose another 25 pounds. I'm in for the 4 pounds by July 4; that's only 11 days from now! I may not hit it, but then again, I might!

Glad you chimed in Tracy! Calorie restriction is definitely not for nursing moms. But its great to have your support as we all rally towards our goals.

How is everyone doing? Having any challenges we can help with? I could really use someone to help keep me accountable for daily exercise. Anyone up for the challenge?

4 pounds by July 4 ... Let's keep that in mind when those summer barbecues and picnics sneak up on us.

I'm really happy to see us all coming in from recess ... And now it's time to settle down and get to work on taking care of us!!

I love reading your posts ... Keep them coming, friends 😓

I'm still here - don't really have a goal right now as I am still breastfeeding my one year old. I gained 50 pounds during my pregnancy and am basically back to my pre-pregnancy weight (fluctuating up and down a couple pounds). I would love to lose more weight, but don't want to impact feeding my son... so, I will be here for support :)

I'm still here as well - and happy to be so. I got discouraged for a while and regained some pounds but jumped back into the fray on the 5th of June - renewing my determination and goal planning. It is great to see others still plugging away. The July goal is good for me as I have been aiming for 10 pounds in June and am down 7. That means another 3 before July 4th but I am going to give it my best! After all, these are the "temporary" pounds I regained so they should go off faster, right? As if! emoticon

Good to hear from everyone and thanks again, Lilybelle, for jolting us back into action!

I'm here, too! I'm actually back on SparkPeople after a long break from it, but I'm trying to get back on track. I haven't been exercising at all for months, so I'm starting with the goal of exercising for at least 10 minutes per day.

I'm glad to see that others are here from our team, and I'm looking forward to catching up with you!

I'm here! Pulled away for way too long getting my special needs son into a great school, with great specialists, and a correct diagnosis. But now its time for me to take better care of myself. And back at SP is the perfect place to be!!

Who else is still here? Doesnt matter how long it takes to check in and see this. Let us know that your here so we can all help each other. 😀

Your 4th of July goal is a great kickstart, Lily. Im in! I am committing to a daily check in on progress towards that goal and will hope to see yours.

As your leader, I am a huge flop!! As your Spark Friend, I'm a great success, at least in my own way and mind.

How about a roll call for the team? Who's here? And how about sharing a brief report of your plan and progress.

I'll start: I'm still here, going into our 6th year. At times I've done better, but for sure 'before Spark People' I was doing a lot worse. For me, the best thing about Sparking is that I've got a lot of new friends, and I draw strength from you and your successes!

I've made a commitment to myself, and now make it to you that by the 4th of July I will lose 4 pounds. Now that is certainly not a monumental goal, but will be a major accomplishment for me. Now ... How about you??
