I'm about to throw in the towel.

The scale is just NOT on my side (well I guess neither is control).  With my sister in town and no real consistent schedule, I've only gained weight.  I've been pretty consistently going to the gym 5 days/week and semi-monitoring my calorie intake.  I had just gotten to the point of feeling better about myself...feeling like I was toning up and not too worried about what the scale says.  I had a ton of school work to do last week so that ended up with me sitting around the house bored a lot of the time.  I know my terrible eating hasn't helped a bit.  It's still depressing.  It takes me so long to lose just 1 pound, but it is so quick and easy to gain it right back.  I can't seem to get out of the funk and really control my eating.  I'm just venting.  I know I should be trying harder and doing a better job.  There are weeks that I do try really hard and do everything I'm supposed to then don't see any result...that's when I want to completely give up.  I am starting to really enjoy salads more.  Working out is the one thing I have been really diligent about.  Gah....

Don't do it! Don't give up! You're exercising and trying to make more conscious choices which is making you more healthy, even if you're not seeing results in your waistline. There's definitely something to be said for that. Also, keep chugging water. I found that it took a little while to see positive results from that, but the constant flushing really does have a good effect.

You've been such a great encourager for me, so now it's my turn:). I know how frustrating it can be, but it's going to make each pound lost that much sweeter because of how hard you're working for it. You're doing great, and you're motivating me to work harder, so thank you!
