I'm not actually doing a "weight loss plan". I set off on this journey to get fit and eat healthier. There's a few struggles here and there, such as my ongoing battle with my current way of eating and keeping my sodium in a reasonable range - or eating a bag of steamed corn only to discover it was 4 servings worth. (Four very delicious servings, though!)

I'm definitely satisfied with my progress so far. When I started this, I would walk up the stairs at work and huff and puff trying to catch my breath before I got to the office door at the end of a long hallway. I was starting to feel aches in my knees trying to sit down without something to keep some of the weight off them. When I started this I was eating foods in ridiculously large quantities - polishing off a Hamburger Helper (1 pound of burger and entire box prepared) by myself.

Now I still go up those same stairs every day, but barely breathe hard coming off the last step. Now I did squats at the beginning of this month and didn't feel a twinge of the ache - just some tendon movement. Now I eat smaller meals and many snacks, enjoy my food much more, and am adding in more raw veggies which I've always loved.

And in the process I've lost just over 50 pounds now - dropping just under 200 as I'm coming up on 7 months.

Not satisfied, but as of the first of the year, I have recommitted to getting back on track. I made decent progress the first year, wasted the second year, and now working on getting to goal by mid-summer.

Not really satisfied - in spite of good nutrition and tons of exercise, my weight doesn't budge and I don't know why. I'm only down -13.5 lbs in the past 20 weeks while eating 1200-1500 calories most days, exercising nearly every day - walked more than 150 miles during March for instance, I'm still happy with myself as a person but wish my health progress was more 'matched' to my efforts.

It is a difficult struggle to keep the weight off, I am on maintenance. Am I satisfied, yes pretty much, and when I don't think I am, it has nothing to do with food but emotions.

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Don't make todays choices be tomorrows regret

I struggle and I am not satisfied.

3 years ago I lost 47 lbs which I gained back plus 3 more. I am not able to follow a good plan consistently enough. I get tired of feeling hungry, and especially not feeling satiated. So then I eat fatty, sugary foods & can finally say, ahhh, I feel good.

I am always looking for HEALTHY food that leaves one satiated.

Are you satisfied with the progress on your weight loss plan?

Would you do things differently? Or no I struggle but I'm satisfied...
