Hey now, don't get frustrated. What did you say to me when I was upset the scale wasn't moving? You said to keep at it and it will move. Remember??

You may be gaining muscle - which will help you in the long run. So hang in there. Keep doing what you're doing and you WILL see results. Sometimes it just takes a little longer. Besides, you have 21 more days this month to take off the other 4.5 pounds you want to lose. That's a good pace. Now keep going!!!

Believe it or not a 1/2 pound is perfect! And here's why,

"The National Institute of Health (NIH) guidelines advice setting weight loss targets of no more than 10% of body weight every 6 months. For most people, that means losing less than a pound per week.

NIH experts also believe that a slow and gradual weight loss approach is not only safer, but also more likely to lead to long-term weight loss.

When it comes to weight loss, slow and steady definitely seems to be the best way to win the weight loss race."

AND there's this girl in my WW meeting who has lost over 100 pounds (I think she's at like 107 or something). Anyway they calculated what that meant only weekly weight loss and it came out to 0.75 lbs. a week. And now she's almost at her goal weight!

I feel like I should be losing faster as well. I am NOT a patient person. lol. But while the scale isn't moving that much, the pants I put on this morning aren't tight like the last time I put them on. thewave.gif
Hopefully, that thought will keep me from stress eating for the next couple days. I am off to Chicago today for about 5 weeks and I am stressing about the work and being away from FI for all that time. All I want is comfort food!

Thanks for the support ladies :) I've just been down about this today. I still stuck to my diet and went to the gym, but am feeling a little defeated. I worked my butt off this past week, and it wasn't what I expected to see. New week, will try to get a new attitude, and next week's weight will be better :)

Ok ladies, I missed crunches yesterday, so I did them tonight. I got in 100oz of water and did 45 minutes on the treadmill which burned 495 calories. I love these challenges!

 

Keep up the great work ladies!

WOW Jill, good work!!!

 

I'm babysitting an infant tonight, so I plan to do my leg lifts while little Stewart is getting in his tummy time.

 

I didn't get a chance to do TammyB's lunges last night so I'll do those tonight as well as any other exercise she posts today.

 

Come on ladies, keep up the good work. We're all doing sooo well!!!!

I will try to get my leg lifts in after cardio today - I may use the machine at the gym though - the inner and outer thigh ones. I'm going to be out on any lunge/squat exercise... I hurt my knee earlier in the summer and that is the exact motion that makes it hurt. 24oz water so far for the day... :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
