Trying to keep it off!

I'm a happily married mom of 2 boys trying to lose my 30 extra "baby" pounds (youngest turns 10 soon!) and make peace with my body and my weight once and for all.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

Thanks for noticing! These last 6 or so weeks haven't been easy, but it's made it better to not solely rely on the scale as my measurement of progress.

Hope everything has been going well with you. Is your reunion coming up soon?

Thanks for the Goodie!

As for the plateau, hang in there, hon. emoticon

Remember, you've lost 14.1 pounds in 9 weeks. That's an average of 1.5 pounds per week and an emoticon accomplishment!

If you really think you're stuck, look at what your doing and see if there's anything you need to shake up. Drinking enough water? Honestly tracking nutrition? Moving your body? Otherwise, give yourself credit for your progress so far & be kind to yourself. During February I had back-to-back weigh-ins of 172.6 & then back-to-back weigh-ins of 171.4. It's coming off slowly & sometimes that's better, 'cause hopefully it'll stay off.

Enjoy the rest of your week! emoticon
