Hi Randy, welcome!
Good job on the 20 lbs!!

**LINDA**

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

Just work on staying consistent with your calorie intake, water, and exercise and the results will come back. Small steady steps and don't forget to try something new when it comes to exercise every 6 weeks or so to keep your body guessing- same goes with meals. It will combat boredom and keep it fresh. You will find all kinds of great support and advice on this team and we look forward to seeing your posts.
Good luck.
Greetings from NC- Suzy

It tends to slow down after the first bit - but you're doing great! Just stick with it and you'll keep dropping the pounds.

Welcome to the team.

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're COMMITTED to something, you accept NO EXCUSES; only results."

I tired of being sick and tired all the time!! Time to do something about it!!

And This Too Shall Pass.

LIFE is like an echo..........

i know the feeling. it can be frustrating to hit a plateau, but eventually you'll get over it, and you'll start losing again.

Hi Randy! Welcome to the team. Unfortunately the first pounds go quicker than the last ones. When I started trying to lose weight this time, the first 65 pounds went easily and quickly. Then I yoyoed in a 20 pound range. When I tired of that I found SP. They have been a lifesaver. It is slow but I now have "only"50 more pounds to go. See you on the threads. Good luck on your journey. Marcia

Give me a sense of humor, Lord,

And pass it on to other folk!

Hi Randy, I hear you and I think that is a common thing. I also was a lot more into it at first but am not surprised that I have stalled as well. I can only keep on trucking and I do. I always drink my 8 glasses of water, and I am a great exerciser. But I do love to eat. I am eating healthier now but too much as usual. I have stalled but not put any on so I will kick myself into gear again and soon be on the downward track. Good luck and keep in touch. Gina

Welcome Randy! I am in the same boat with a 100 lb weight loss, and I am from Minnesota too! I am giving myself til Spring 2012 to get there though. No sense rushing these things LOL! As you can see by my ticker I am on a very slow path to success. At least I am heading in the right direction.

Keep up the good work! We are all here to help if you need it. Just post and you will get lots of responses!

Be Patient, yet persistent. Don't expect results overnight. Take it one step at a time. Let nothing stop you! You will get where you want to go.

Attitudes are contagious. Is yours worth catching?

With every decision you make and with every action you take, you can make your life healthier and brighter!
