    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.
        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... :)

                  I will do my leg lifts tonight. there is a Crunch gym next to my hotel that i can use for free. I am excited. There is no excuse for not going!! Maybe I will do the 30 min of cardio i missed yesterday as well.
                  and now I am off to get a bottle of water...I haven't had any yet today (unless you count the water i used to make coffee. lol)

                  this thread is so motivating. I love it.

                      OK - last night I was supposed to go to this class with a friend and she canceled because she was sick. BUT I actually went home and got on the stationary bike for 30 minutes JUST BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS!!!

                      Yay!
