I'm feeling discouraged because I've gone up the last 2 days. I've been 100-200 above my calorie limit for a few days, but I don't think it should have made me GAIN since it's still below my maintenance intake...

Anyway, I was juuuust about to go grab a pint of Ben and Jerry's frozen yogurt but I decided to take a look around here first. I looked at some success pictures and decided to stay away from the kitchen. Phew.

That's why I love this forum!!! Even if you're not talking to someone at the moment, it's a feeling of not being alone in this.

I just joined and I am thrilled to hear you are finding it helpful. Congrats on avoiding the kitchen...hopefully I can learn from your success.:D

I TOTALLY AGREE!!! 3FC is such a great place!! TONS of support and AWESOME success stories!!!

as for your gain...maybe it had something to do with WHAT you ate in those extra calories...maybe too much sodium and you're retaining water...OR MAYBE its just you're normal weight fluctuation...don't fret too much over the day to day weigh ins...wait til the end of the month and look at it as a whole...you will feel much better :D

we all fall off the wagon, just climb right back on...don't worry too much about being over 1-200, it's OK once in a while :)

I am most tempted to overeat at night, so I log into 3FC and get inspired by people's advice and stories. In fact, it is late now & I had cravings so I logged in. So thanks for the thread. It helped me tonight. :)

Yes, yes, yes, ParadiseFalls, I agree! I think 3FC is fantastic! Don't get discouraged, just focus on the small steps and face a clean new day every morning (and maybe throw out the B&J? lol). Hang in there!

I have to agree, Ive got people around me that give the typical 'hey you look good' or something to the like, or a diet buddy, exercise buddy who seems to fade away after a month or two . . . but 3FC is a constant, nurturing place and so supportive.
Even after falling off the wagon there were open arms and words of encouragement to get back on track . . . it's a fantastic place and Im so happy I found it :)

Paradise, I am glad you joined too!

Ditto. 3fc has the best chicks ever. I never would have stuck with it without the support here.

I agree with LizR - I don't think I would still be on track if it weren't for this group of ladies and gents on this site.
