Okay, I've known this would be inevitable, so I'm trying to be rational and just ride it out. I have hit my first plateau. I've taken off 18 pounds and have been stuck there for almost 2 weeks. This is just not funny!

More Ups & Downs
I think my body is a bit schizophrenic with regard to weight loss. I spent several days (probably a week or more) stuck at one weight. I was doing all the right things, yet the scale would.not.move even .5 pound! Very frustrating.

Each morning when I open my eyes,
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be... Read more
