    LeAnne, the plateau is kind of motivating for me to work my a$$ off! I did take measurements of just my waist (my biggest concern) in the beginning. I've only lost 8.8 lbs, I gained one week, lost that exact amount the next week, and neither gained nor lost this weeks so I've kind of been at 0 for 3 week. Although when we first started my waist was 34" and now it's 30.5". Did you take pics before? I did and I feel like I've actually made a big change.

          I go to a gym where they take measurments and pictures every ten weeks. At first I hated getting into a swimsuit and letting someone take a picture of all the flab, but it really has been a huge motivation to see the changes over time even when the scale isn't moving.

          I also would recommend adding more strength training to your routine when you hit a plateau. I know I prefer cardio but it is how I have gotten past two plateaus!

            I screwed up on the dates. I had a holiday Monday as well, but here they call it Family Day.

                  Marianna I hope everything works out. Don't let the stress of wedding planning tear you two apart!

                  Ann your baby is absolutely gorgeous! Those eyes are stunning!

                  Well this contest is becoming very hard for me! I have been so lazy but am hoping to get back into the swing of things this week. Only a little more than 2 months before my wedding!

                      Hey girls. I just checked back on this thread...I had no clue I won last week. Yay!

                      I've definitely been struggling too. I lose I gain, I lose I gain. I'm really trying to get back into doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. Day 1 was yesterday. Wish me luck.

                      One reason I think we're not motivated is because no one is really chatting about what they're doing to lose weight. We're all just checking in on Wednesday and that's it. We need to help each other out.
