I think you're going to get the biggest bang for the buck if you track your food.
Once you start getting closer to goal weight you need to be a bit more diligent.

Just track for a few weeks and see if you're staying in range for your particular goals.
This will at least tell you where you're at and if you need to tweak anywhere.

Good Luck!!

I have been tracking my foods in my head, but not entering them here like before...Been stuck for at least two weeks, maybe 3? I have 5 kids and work full time and also sell Avon part time LOL...I dont have time for a gym membership so my workouts consist of walks, taking the stairs all day long at work, and doing crunch exercises and pushups at home with the kids. I know its not much, but with my crazy hectic lifestyle its what I can do for now. I was thinking I def need to pump up the water intake, as Im guilty of not always doing that. And had also thought of trying some different exercises from that i could do at home, change it up like you said. Maybe that will help! Thanks!!!!!

How long have you been "stuck"? It might be that you have hit a natural plateau and just need to give your program a little more time. Are you tracking what you eat? What kind of exercise do you do? You might want to shake up your exercise program and try something different.

Hi Luann!
I am 5'6 and a half inches. I think my ideal weight is somewhere around 140 ish...
I was hoping to try and lose another 5 or 6 pounds and then keep it there. The last few weeks, Ive just been hovering between 146 and 148...going back and forth even if I weigh at the same time every morning. For a while there I was steady losing a pound or two at the most per week. Which I thought was good. Not too much too fast...Anyway, I just seemed to have stopped at this weight and the things that were working before arent really working now :( Any suggestions?

How tall are you?
You might already be at a healthy weight for your height.
