Woo Hoo! I don't know what I did other than cut most all carbs out but I've finally managed to get below 148 lbs. I've been there since Dec 17th. I know, I know we had holidays but I don't like to be on a plateau. I'm just 2 lbs from goal and my calories haven't been radically low either. I started taking a tablespoon or two of olive oil again. It's so good for you and helps your skin, hair and your good cholestrol, plus it helps you to feel satisfied. Not all fats are bad and you would do well to add some to your diet. It could be, with the low carbs, the reason I broke my plateau. Anyway, I'm excited again. I'd begun to think I'd never get below 148, or even back down to it. I don't mind losing slowly but it's the days my weight goes up for no reason and then down the next day for weeks that bothers me.

OK, I'm back to normal, (which really isn't normal), and I'm all calm and ready to start losing again. One of our team members, (Friends of Dr. Johnson), has lost a huge amount of weight this past year and we are so happy for her. She's gone from the 400's to the 200's and we are so proud of her. She has such determination and perserverance that it is inspiring. Actually, I think that there are two that have lost incredible amounts this year. I know, I'm still in the past, but it doesn't hurt to gloat a little over our accomplishments. We have grown in number so fast but we are still a tight little group with lots of enthusiam and I'm just glad to have taken a friend's advice to start a team. It's been a rewarding experience for me. I'm looking forward to 2008 with enthusiam and excitement. This year may be the best year of my life!
This is my Pomeranian, Zacky, who lost almost all his hair for 2 years and then it all came back in...my baby boy is so cute!

How hard is this? After 195 calories, only down .5 lb?? I was hoping to at least get down 2 lbs. Eating such a low amount wasn't the hard thing, the hard thing is only losing .5 lb. I'm telling you, my body is fighting to keep me at this weight. How can other people lose when they eat more than twice the amount I do? This is the perfect example of why I get radical. Now, I'm not advising or recommending that anyone else do what I do, but I do what I do because I don't lose otherwise. Yes, I can lose after holidays and vacations, but when it comes to progressing downward, I'm having a real tough time. My low was 146.5 but I only saw it fleetingly. Help! What am I going to do to shake this body into losing weight? You say, exercise, I tried that several years ago. For months I exercised everyday doing 4.5 mph for 45 minutes (on the treadmill) a day. Did I lose? No, I probably got stronger (that was my goal, to get healthy because my sister had just found out she had terminal cancer) but that was right before my 1st heart attack so I guess I didn't really even get stronger. Then a little over a year later, a second heart attack while on the treadmill. I guess my reasons for not exercising are pretty deep seated...I just don't know what to do next?? Maybe 3 down days in a row? One down, 2 to go? There's got to be a way to do this, but what is it???
