DIRT_ROAD_GIRL; I sent you a friend request for SP and Fitbit. Sounds like you have a very active job in the hospital kitchen. Keep up the great stepping.

@TwilaQ1, thank you for all the tips! :) I started back on my WLJ on April 1 at 256.7 pounds, and as of this morning, I am 247.2 pounds! I'm pretty excited about my weight loss so far, although I know at this early in the game it's probably water weight. But hey! I'll take it!! I'm trying to go with an eating plan that I can continue with the rest of my life. I LOVE carbs, but I've cut back on them a lot. I know I can't give them up completely, but I can give myself boundaries with them. I will definitely try the vinegar suggestion! Call me weird, but I've always kinda liked the smell and taste of vinegar. :))
You asked how I get so many steps in one day. I work out every morning (elliptical for 20 minutes and treadmill for 40 minutes), then if weather permits, I walk to and from work. It takes me 20 minutes one way. Also, I work in a hospital kitchen, and I'm on my feet ALL day long. It's a daily struggle working around that food all day, but I'm handling it the best I can. Working there was not because I wanted to, it was a have to situation. (Sorry, I tend to get off the subject).
Are we friends on the FB site? I apologize for not knowing. :( If we aren't, I'd love to be!! :)

@Dirt_Road_Girl - I've been stalled for some months now, but what got my weight loss started was cutting way back on carbs. I have stopped eating bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, chips, etc. Almost 100% of the time. I also cut way back on alcohol. I used to have a glass or two of red wine every night. Now I only have it on Friday and Saturday nights. Those two actions have made a tremendous difference for me.

Also, try taking some apple cider vinegar (Bragg's Organic with 'The Mother' is best) in water about 30 minutes before each meal. Start with just a little, maybe add a bit lf honey if you need to, but once you get used to the taste slowly increase to a couple of tablespoons per cup of water.

Give these a try to kick start your weight loss! Best of luck to you!

I have lost a few pounds, but the biggest change for me since I received my fitbit last June, is that I have dropped 2 pant sizes. I slowly built up to 30k+ steps a day, until last week, when my DR told me to rest my foot for a couple weeks. I am now doing 10-15k steps per day, until she releases me.

SP recommends a 2 lbs weight loss only if your BMI is over 30. so be careful you do not loose to quickly and then your body stalls out because it is going into starvation mode

Right now my weight loss is stalled as my thryoid meds are not working causing my body to hold on to the weight

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Hello all! I'm curious to hear how you are doing, as far as weight loss goes. I received mine on April 2nd, and I absolutely LOVE it! I've got mine set to lose 2 pounds per week, with a 1000 calorie deficit (high intensity). I'd like to hear how you're doing. :) Weight loss and getting healthy is a huge priority to me, and I feel like my FitBit is going to help me finally reach my weight loss goals!
