Today I'm down a total of 2.5lbs. Yay for me. I know lots of people say we shouldn't weigh ourselves everyday, but if I don't I get off track too easily. The downside to weighing yourself everyday is that it's easy to get discouraged when... Read more

I have not lost weight for several days now. In fact, I've only really lost 1.7 pounds in over a week even though I'm following the diet and exercising. However, I'm not discouraged yet. I know that it will come off if I don't give up but jus... Read more
