Thanks for your motivating comment!! I'm glad to hear that tracking what you eat works for you too - now we just have to keep ourselves disciplined. Welcome back to SparkPeople - you can get to where you want to be as long as you stay disciplined and motivated!!
Hi, Just wanted to update you and see how you are doing? I'm starting over for the second time! I originally started at 200 pounds lost 70 pounds. I did not keep it off. How do you keep it off once you have lost the weight?!!! Now I have started again at 179. I made my husband join me because he is very heavy. He lost 3 pounds first week. I lost 2 pounds the first week. I'm confident that I can loose the weight. I'm worried and not sure how to keep the weight off once I'm at goal weight. Does anyone have any advice? Currently I'm on summer vacation. I go back to work in September 13, 2010 teaching my second year of special ed. mixed preschool. I worry about staying on track & helping keep my husband on track during the school year. As well as having 3 young children. My boy is 11, a girl that is 4 and a baby that is 3 with special ed issues of her own. She is developmentally delayed due to not having me help her during her first year. I had breast cancer and was very sick from the Kimo therapy. Now I'm doing the LAUSD assessments for an IEP for her to get services. I'm very determined this time & know I can do it with planning! Good Luck to everyone!!! Laura
How was vacation?? I'm doing great! It has been a week of ups and downs, but I'm settling in to make some goals for July. I haven't heard of Dr. Ian's 4 day diet... but I tend to steer clear of anything with that 4 letter word... :-)
