Welcome! Four years ago I lost 15 lbs and then gained about 35 lbs. I'm working my way back down again. I think, in my case, the weight gain was a combination of menopause weight plus being overly tired and fatigued for several of those years. Now I'm determined to get to a good weight for me and stay there. Now I'm weighing myself only weekly (because it's too discouraging to see no weight loss on a day-to-day basis). But once I reach my desired weight, I'm planning to weigh myself daily so I can deal with 1-2 lb gains as they happen.

There's a weekly motivation thread where people post their daily goals for the week and then report back about how they're doing. It's a friendly group and people provide a lot of encouragement, and I've learned a lot from others there.

Hi there, AJ! First off, congratulations on losing 40! What an accomplishment! I'll second what Carolyn said -- join us over on the 7 Day Motivational thread. Hope to see you there!
