Hi Jen and welcome to the team. I sympathize with your slow weight loss: my weight drops about 1 single pound every 3-4 weeks. Slow? Oh my yes. But steadily going down? Yes to that too! I'm now 67 years old (had a birthday last month) but with the steady exercise and healthy diet I feel better than I have in several years. It almost seems as though when the weight goes down so does the feeling of age. This is a great team that will give you lots of support. Best wishes on your journey.

emoticon Jen and emoticon to the team. Patience is my demeanor and as long as I make a little downward progress, I am thrilled. I don't like to see the scale in the upwards mode. Yes, I am losing and very slow but it feels so good!!

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

emoticon I gave up Wheat, Sugar, and Dairy on Mother's Day ( now wouldn't ya think that I would be losing at least 5 #s a day or something outrages emoticon .....NO...
I am very satisfied with vegi's and nuts and beans, because I like them. My "Slowest Loser" weight lose is about 2 #s a week, sometimes not even that.....Yes iam 65 and my hip and knee are not functioning right now.......but I will never give up.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

My Name is Jen... I have been on this yoyo of a weight loss adventure for at least 4 years. I lose and then gain and give up. This time around I decided I am not dieting but changing my life style to be a Healthy One... I lose weight so slowly and I thought I was doing something wrong... but I got a post on one of my blogs this weekend and this lady told me about this team and reminded me I am not the only one who loses wright slowly, so here I am!!!
