thanks everyone, I'm back to logging my food, the only problem is trying to find out how much calories are in ethnic food. We don't really measure, everything is done by taste.

I am 5 ft. 1 in. and totally understand it being harder to lose as we get older (58 thank you very much!). And this is the perfect place to get the whining out of the way because we've all been there and we agree our families don't need to hear it. Whine to them too much and they sympathize & inadvertently sabotage our goals by providing our comfort foods for us. The IMPORTANT thing is, once the whining is over with, get back on track, cut out the foods you shouldn't eat - even if it's just one or two at a time - and instead of telling yourself you are deprived tell yourself you had a successful day when you tell yourself no! emoticon

I really like your quote below "You cannot out-exercise a poor diet" That is a good reminder that what goes in the body is VERY important!!

DINACHIKI,

Studies have shown that those individuals who track their nutrition lose twice as much weight as those who don't. While exercise is great for burning calories, you cannot out-exercise a poor diet.

So, I'm 5'2" and I'm realizing it's a lot more difficult to lose weight these days. What's worst is that I'm from the carribean, and I tend to gravitate towards heavy foods. High in carbs,fried,or saucy foods are my faves. I know everyone keeps telling me not to concentrate on the scale, but I'm getting a little frustrated. I gave up on wine during the week and I'm exercising one more day a week. So now I'm feeling deprived and frustrated. Yes, I know I'm wining but I needed to get it out of my system. emoticon
