I love SparkPeople! A few years ago, we eliminated our weekly (sometimes twice weekly) take out meals. Often we would be so exhausted when we came home from work, that we and would grab take out because it seemed easier. Now we rarely get takeout, instead, I plan our weekly dinners. Our dinners are not necessarily complicated, but they are healthy and a much better choice than takeout.

-Exercise plan: work out 5-6 days per week, including swimming, walking, wii just dance, yoga, running & DVD's

    I just wanted to stop by and wish you well. It seems we are both stuck at the weight for now on a long plateau, so all we can do is keep on trying, track our food, drink our water, do all of the LTGL things we know to do and I am going to try to shake up something to get this darn scale to go down!!! I know we can do it, so let's do it together!!! Have a nice evening! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi, I just wanted to stop by and wish you a happy day today!! This challenge has been going by so quickly and I have not even come close to reaching my goals to lose 5%. I had been on a plateau, but this week I gained, ugh! It seems like no matter what I do the weight just doesn't come off. Anyway, I hope you are having success and reaching the goals you set for yourself. Have a good day and keep sparking! emoticon emoticon emoticon
