    Hi there! I have been inactive for a while but am back now and am hoping you have not given up! I'd love to see/hear your successes and hope all is well.

    I'm officially at the 60 day mark today! WOOHOO! I've not missed logging my food or exercising.

    You asked, "How's it going with your trainer?"

    Things are going well. I'm MUCH stronger now than I was--that's for sure. I'm hoping to reach that point of critical muscle mass SOON, so my body will burn the fat more easily.

    My trainer keeps the workouts varied, so I never get bored. She works different muscle groups, and challenges me to points I didn't know I could reach. This week, at one point, she was loading up some weights for me and said, "Don't be scared!"

    I said, "I AM SCARED!!" LOL! BUT I did it.. Lifted more weight than I ever thought I would/could.

    You also said, "I think I am going to get a trainer for the summer. Any advice on what to look for?" I'd look for someone qualified and who advertises working on weight loss and/or obesity. If you make an appointment and pay close attention to how they react to your size, whether they encourage you, and what they're working style may be will provide you with good insights as to what they may be like to work with.

    During my intro meeting with my trainer, she was very encouraging and never once said anything that made me feel bad about where I was at the time. She also volunteered that she would NOT get in my face and yell at me like they do on Biggest Loser.. She said she'd be 100% encouraging and would work with me wherever I was at any given moment. That has proven to be true.

    Hiring a good trainer has been a HUGE key to me for staying on track with my program.. Otherwise, there are several times I probably would have given up by now!
