Believe it or not, its actually an inspiration to ME to hear your responses. Farah, keep trying. It took me MONTHS to get to this point. Months of trying but having no success, and months of determined work-outs often accompanied by weight GAIN instead of weight LOSS. I think those months made me more determined than anything. So don't worry about not losing weight right now because in the end, it WILL come off. Another thing to try is if your off by only 5 pounds, look at yourself in the mirror, REALLY look at yourself and decide if your body looks the way you pictured it to look when you were done. If not, KEEP TRYING, if so, decide if you really want to kill yourself trying or if you're happy the way you are.
Don't give up if you don't really want to, Farah. As Dori says in Finding Nemo
"Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
