My weight loss journey started over 3 years ago, and it has been slow going. I have had my ups and downs, which has been frustrating, but at the same time, I am growing more aware of what works and what doesn't work for me. Every day I feel like I am getting closer to my ultimate goal, and I know that with persistence and consistency I will eventually get there.

My current motivation is a Disney Cruise coming up in September of 2014. I want to be able to feel comfortable wearing a bathing suit while I'm there.

Hi, I really related to your comment on the message board about tracking, how if you skip tracking something because you don't know the calories, then you'll feel like you've given yourself a free pass for the rest of the day. I'm exactly the same way! Well, I guess part of our weight loss journey here is finding strategies to outwit ourselves... I just read some of your blogs and you sound like you're doing great!
