Have been stuck at 28 pounds for over 3 weeks. O.M.G. I was so frustrated and disheartened, but kept walking and doing strength training as normal. Finally started tracking religiously again and guess what, was barely making 1000 calories a day. Some (okay most) were 800-900. Woops! So goes guessing. I increased calories and within 3 days had finally hit my 30, yay! I've been so busy the past couple of days, had trouble hitting them again. I MUST plan out menus and stick to them. This is such a foreign concept to me, actually trying to increase my intake. I get so used to cutting everywhere that unless I track, I cut too much. Go figure. I'm way behind "schedule" now, but trying not to be discouraged and trying to focus on how far I've come. Did you know that I can walk up the hill beside my house now at a pretty good clip and not be sucking the leaves off the trees??!! ha That is a major accomplishment and I'm actually quite proud of it. Thanks to all of you ('specially Sheila!) who keep me motivated and encouraged here on SP. May God bless you richly.
