You can make yourself crazy. You know that you will lose weight, then settle, and maybe even gain a pound or two... and then see a big drop.

Trust the process. Eat healthy, be active, repeat consistently. You CAN do this!

Excellent!

Do yourself a favor. Take a few days away from the scale. Keep doing the right things, trust the process, and give your body time to adjust.

I'm doing great! I'm finishing week 2 of couch to 5k tomorrow. I'm also 14 pounds down, but I can't seem to get over that 300's digit hump. :-/

Hi Hal. I know what you mean about the lack of testosterone. Even the exercise demos all seemed geared to women. What, us men don't need to get fit and healthy too?

Hi, I'm Hal! I'm working on couch to 5k, but hopefully without the stress fractures and shin splints attached with it.

I joined the biggest loser challenge in the 20 somethings thread, but it looks like my team is all women. So I'm here to balance out the estrogen/testosterone in my online life...
