Hi there! I just saw your comment on my journal asking what I did in May to get things going. I decided to go low carb because that works for me. I started with the Atkins Fat Fast...you can Google it if you are interested. I have a really hard time losing weight, and this way of eating really got me going- but you can see, if you average out my weight loss over the past few months, it is about 5 pounds per month. I also started working out harder- climbing a nearby sledding hill, adding some running to my walks, 100's of squats. Anyway, I hope that some of that may help you, too! Thanks for stopping over- sorry it took me so long to answer you!
