:(

I am starting to feel that I will never see 239 on the scale looking back at me.

I get stuck too! I thought of switching up my exercise a little. I will see if it helps.

You will get there.... ;-)

For me, 240 was a big milestone because it was a weight I had hovered around for abou 15 years before gaining another 30lbs following an illness. It took *forever* to get past it. What helped me is to set a goal just to get there and to allow myself a reasonable time to reach is, say, 1/2 lb a week? And then to set a strict plan that I would follow for just that goal. You can do it! And more!

I go down to 242 then back up to 247. I am so frustrated with everything and nothing these days. This whole separation/pending divorce has really derailed me. :(

THIS! This is what drives me nuts!

I feel your pain. I think our bodies hold on to a weight even when we're doing everything possible to break up with it. And then whoosh! There it goes.

Make sure you're getting enough sleep. My best friend will be eating everything perfectly but if she doesn't get 8 hours, she shows a gain at the scale.

You will get there. Don't give up! I remember 199 and how I almost gave up on ever seeing it, so glad I stuck with it.

Aww, SmallSteps! I so know how you feel! I hate this bouncy weight. Up and down, up and down. And it seems like the minute you think it's going to keep going it just bounces up again.

Yuck. I am doing the divorce thing too. It's no fun.

I think 239 is right to be wary. You say you dream of him. You will work to be with him. But you're really just looking for a short-term relationship. Maybe even a one-night stand. He can't face the pain. Give up on 239. I saw 238 winking at you. He's a better catch anyway.

I can completely relate to you on the separation/divorce really messing with you mentally (which can sometimes affect you physically). My divorce was final in February and up until that point it was hard to lose any weight because I was so strained mentally (however, I wasn't eating right either and that was a HUGE factor). I finally got it together when I got my mental faculties back in order. I had to heal my mind first, get my focus back on track, and set my eyes on MY health and happiness. I'm sending you positive thoughts and energy! You will get through this and come out on the other end happy and THIN! :)

I can relate I think your problem really is stress and it is probably making you eat bad things or eat more than you should then you probably feel bad about yourself and eat less than you should at some point which leads to overeating and regaining later. I think you should maybe focus on your stress from the divorce rather than the actual number on the scale try to relax and just eat good and do your exercise and really focus on releasing some stress maybe do some yoga or something to relax or try to have some fun somehow to take your mind off the divorce. I'm really sorry to hear you are going through that hang in there you will get there! :hug:

If I'm wrong I'm sorry but that's just what I think might be happening.
