HAha, no problem, I hear ya with the charts. It says I am supposed to weigh 155. Thats what I was in high school, and I looked like I didnt eat back then. I have to admit that I struggled this past week, still exercising, but going over by about 50-100 calories every few days. Annoying, but gotta keep goin. Ahh well! Later!

oh man, I'm sorry!! LOL! I didn't even read your sparkpage first, sorry. Thanks for the compliment. I didn't post any pictures of my whole body. I guess I should, huh, so that I can keep track of then and now. I only have 15 more pounds to lose. I have natually wide hips so I guess I'm an hourglass figure, IDK. I just know that I would look scary if I got down to 115lbs like the chart says. I look my best at 135 pounds. I guess because the wide hips. There's nothing I can do about that, though, unless I have hip surgery.LOL.
Hey Amy, thanks for the advice, very helpful. I had to laugh though when you said you go girl. I am the dude in the picture, sorry, just had to laugh,, good stuff. Your pictures look great , are you trying to loose alot? Anyway, your advice is awesome, I have always been in goood shape from hockey and baseball, but older now, and with 2 little kiddies runnin around, they zapped my energy. Been doing well for three weeks, but struggled a little this week. Thanks again, your info is great,

you go girl. That's what these message boards are all about,supporting one another. I have found that my biggest obstacle of all has been PATIENCE. I am mastering the art of patience as one poster had told me to do. See, that helped me already, and I am steadily losing 2 pounds a week at 1200 calories. I still eat what I want, and yes, that includes junk food, I just don't go over 1200 calories. And also, after reading 10,000 articles I have learned to listen to myself and what works for me. 1200 calories a day of whatever I want, that way, when I come off the diet, I won't binge on the foods I've missed because I've been eating them. Does that make sense? Anyway, sorry for the long post. Congratulations and keep up the good work.
Thanks to all who responded to me. This message board is very helpful!! This was actually a tough week for me. I did not go crazy with eating. I did have a cheesesteak, but everything I do in regards to ordering out, everything is a small now, as opposed to large as before. So I am glad if I am ordering out sometimes, I am at least ordering small. In my little tiny brain it makes sense...go figure!
