Congrats on the wonderful weight loss! I'm a new member as well... let's keep each other motivated! :) We're both about the same weight as well.. I'm down 5lbs in about 2 weeks and trying to stay focused without getting discouraged.

I have good news all. On January 8, 2013 when I arrived back to work I weighed myself and the scale read 264lbs. I changed my diet (to include drinking water only), started doing insanity exercises and regular routine walking. I just checked myself on the scale today and I am 254lbs. 54 more lbs to go. Starting off the week right. WE CAN DO IT! ON OUR WAY TO BEING HEALTHY. :-)

Yeah that's definitely true. I know with Atkins I could lose a pound a day but I know I can't eat like that forever I love variety too much and carbs. But just eating low cal and healthy I don't even feel like I'm on a diet so I know I could stick to it forever. And you're right slow and steady does win the race! I just got to keep reminding myself that and reminding myself that I should be doing it to have a healthy life and make those permanent changes.

I really think you should do whatever you think is most comfortable and whichever you think you can stick to. I am doing good. Last time i checked the scale I was at the same 5lb weight loss but I am not letting that get to me. I know I won't be able to lose weight as fast as I want to but slow and steady always wins the race. Continue reaching for the stars.

Good for you! Don't give up. And if you give in then thats ok, just get back on track. I personally love doing Zumba. I am addicted. I do that workout on the WII also. I was never the type to exercise. I now walk more, I wear a pedometer everday, and make sure that I get my 10,000. Good Luck and remember have Fun..
