Congrats! Sorry for the long delay - I moved last week, and I am mentally out of it! I cannot believe how much work this is, and how stressful it is!

Just wanted to say - I am proud of you!

Thank you so much. Those are some great tips. I love the idea of setting a goal regarding journaling 100% for a couple of days a week. I'll click on the link too. I'm getting there!

Kennesis,
Don't be too hard on yourself. I think there comes a point where you have to plateau to allow your body to adjust to a new set weight (I believe there's actually some research out there on the topic, though I can't specify where or from when). As long as you are still working out and not putting weight back on, I think you're still on the wagon. Also keep in mind, if you are working out regularily, you may be replacing fat weight with muscle weight. It won't show on the scale, but it will in how you feel and how your clothes fit.
So, keep up the good work with your exercise.
I know from experience it is easy to get a bit burned out on the food diary - it's a lot of work! Maybe set some small specific goals - 100% tracking for a day (or a week, or whatever), allowing only one 'treat' a week - you get the idea. That may help you get back into it.
Don't get discouraged. Keep working out, keep eating well, and the weight will start to come off again. Good luck!

Okay, so I feel like I'm slipping off the bandwagon. I've been going slow and have lost some solid weight. But I'm not as thorough as I used to be with the foods I'm eating. I'm doing great at working out but I use that as an excuse to have 'just one cookie'. As a result I'm stuck at my current weight. So I'm checking in for some motivation and help from friends in the same boat. Thank you!!! emoticon
