Shanna,
Thanks for the words of encouragement! You're so right, going forward, no matter the pace is better than going backwards :-)

Hi GOIRISHND,

I understand exactly what you are going through.... I have been stuck on the same 3 lbs for two weeks now... each day it changes, up down up down up down... I just keep reminding myself that overall the number is moving in the right direction - even if it is only 1 pound a week. That's 52 pounds in a year!

It's not melting off fast, but it is melting off, and I know I won't get to my goal if I get frustrated and start cheating. It is worth it! Stick with it, and don't let that mean scale win. Think about that great feeling you have at the end of the day for making good choices, and the rest will fall into place! You got this!!!!!! :)

Shanna~

Hello there. It's not untypical to go through this in the beginning. The first initial pounds are usually fairly easy to take off but one needs to shake things up a bit after a while. Please read through the following links to help you along:

Hi Friends,
I think I need a pick me up. I have been trying to loose wt off and on the past few years. t seems whenever I lose 7 - 8 lbs I get tuck and have trouble losing more OR start feeling like I can eat more. Then I stop losing the weight. I've been at that point the past couple days. I thought I was doing well - past my exercise goals weekly, track my food daily since I joined SP with the exception of two days. The past few days I've been over my daily calorie count. I try to be honest with myself on the tracker so if I eat it, I track it.
Please help me keep up my motivation and not repeat my past.
Thanks!
