One of my clients started doing a soy based protein drink and of course she lost like 5 pounds the first week, and she is not overweight at all, I would say about 130 pounds. So I thought I would try it. Monday will be a week and I have not lost anything. I have been so low on my calories I had high hopes, but I have a feeling it might backfire on me. I will post again on Monday I hope I am down because it cost me 60 dollars for a months worth of powder so I am in it for a least a month.

Okay I know - it's always easier to see when its somebody else and you've been very encouraging to me in the past when I've been bemoaning the number on the scales.
I figure (on my good days) that today is the only day we're sure we have and we need to ensure we're getting the most out of it. I suspect that struggle stops us achieving our goals. I know that its' stopped me from sleeping and enjoying my life of late.
Today it's cold here as we come into winter and I've had to slip into some winter clothes that I haven't seen since last year. Man they're baggy on me and bulky but I look like a person who's a lot thinner wearing clothes that are too big for her. That was encouraging and put things in perspective a bit.
I know that you want this for your daughter's graduation but I'm sure that she would be a lot happier to have you there happy with yourself and loving how you look now, not unhappy and wearing a little dark cloud. I'm wondering if it wouldn't be a good idea to take the $60 and go do something that you haven't be physically able to do for some years thereby enjoying your success and maybe even losing some more weight in the process?

Um, wait a minute. You lost 1.1 lbs...so why aren't you celebrating that my dear? OK, it's not 166. Mine wasn't 167 like I aimed for either. But hey, I still lost a pound. That's an accomplishment. We have to remember that, and we have to continue to work at this.
Careful on your calorie range there. If you don't mind me asking...
1) what is your calorie range?
2) what is your "average" burned calories a day?
3) remind me of your height...
Sometimes if we keep our calories too low, it does backfire on us. Calories are essential, just as protein, carbs, fats, etc. are. It took me a while, but I finally figured out what my perfect range in everything is in order to consistently lose weight. Now I just need to work on staying perfectly in range :)
Hang in there. You're doing great, and don't "diss" yourself!!

Looks like you're down a pound. That's not nothing.
Keep up the good work.
