    I told myself in 2012 holidays & winter was a pause from my weight focus, when I started back up & focused again I had 25lbs to loose to be back where I was. don't take time off, your time is so precious, take a breath (not a break)- everyday is a new day. -shana

    Hey Jen! I'm new to SP - but definitely not new to trying to lose weight!

    Giving yourself a breather and telling yourself you'll come back more focused never works. Trust me! That's why I'm here! I got discouraged, frustrated, and tired of trying ... I slipped, and slipped a bit more... and gave myself permission to take some time off. Then I felt crappier and crappier - which let to emotional eating, making deals with myself that I never followed through on (I'll just have one bite of cake, I'll eat whatever I want tonight and be good tomorrow.......) and managed to gain almost 20 lbs back.

    No matter how badly you've screwed up, you can ALWAYS pick yourself up again. Like the others said - each meal and each day is brand new. If it helps to reset your trackers and weight, than do that. Just whatever you do, push through this hard time. It will pay off!

    And please - remind me of this later when I'm struggling! LOL emoticon

    Don't give up on tracking! Even if things aren't going so well now, they won't get better if you stop tracking. Don't wait until Sept to have a fresh start. There's no reason not to start now! If you know things aren't going well, take a step back and look at your tracker. What can you change today? A healthier dinner? A walk in the evening? You have to be the one that makes this happen! It won't happen if you give up. Stay at it, though, and you can do it!

    seems like if you're off track, waiting to get back on track will make it harder when the time comes. I'm speaking from personal experience. Start again tomorrow! I bet you'll regret waiting if you start again and see some success- I know I have! Good luck!

    Are you sure not tracking is the best game plan for you? That seems counterproductive.

    Woah! What's wrong?? What do you mean when you say that you have gotten off of your game? Not exercising? Not eating the way you want?? Can we take a step back and see what areas we want to work on and take a minute to regroup? Letting these bad habits stick around until Sept probably isn't the best idea. Tomorrow is a brand new fresh day and your trackers are completely empty until you decide what goes there. Maybe pick one area to focus on tomorrow... maybe track food and try to have one healthy meal? or maybe decide to go for a half hour walk tomorrow and add that to your fitness tracker? small steps add up, but don't give those bad things the power to keep upsetting u for another month. you are in control. you can do this:)

    Don`t throw in the towel yet. Get back into it tomorrow - there is still 3 weeks left to go in August so plenty of time to get on track again.

    We all have slumps - it`s part of the process the key is to realizing this and not becoming totally derailed by it.

    You can do this - you know you can - you just have to believe you can!
