Looking at your ticker, I see that you've already lost like 79 pounds. That is soooo awesome! Everyone has their ups and downs, but you've clearly been able to conquer the "ups" on the scale before. Also, while exercising is a huge part of weight loss, eating right without exercising has major benefits, too. While you will not lose weight as quickly as if you were doing both, you can still lose by reducing your caloric intake (not ridiculously low, but lower than you had been taking in to maintain your higher weight). Also, you can read plenty of messages on these boards about why your weight may fluctuate from day-to-day, so don't get so down when you weight yourself on a day you're not supposed to and it doesn't give you the response you want or deserve. I have also had to break myself of the mentality that once I have eaten one bad thing for the day, I might as well eat anything I want for the rest of the day since I already went off plan. Like I have read many times, it's all about attitude. And remember, your body does thing you dmight not like sometimes. Even if you're on plan, you may gain that 1.5 pounds this week. However, if you stay on plan the next week, you may end up losing 3 pounds, which means even with the gain, you are down 1.5! Just keep the bigger picture in mind. This isn't a day-by-day or even week-by-week process. It is ongoing, and the more you stick to plan, the more your body will realize that it's a good thing!
