Patience is what we need right now. I gained 6 lbs during 2012 and then another 4 over the holidays so I need to lose 10 lbs and I want to do it before my vacation to Hawaii in April. I've been tracking, exercising and eating within my calorie range for 2 weeks and I actually gained 1 lb. According to my calculations I should have lost 2 lbs by now. It is VERY frustrating. But we must keep at it, don't get too discouraged and NEVER, NEVER give up!! We can do it!!!
