Thanks for the tip.
I toughed it out this time but sure would like to be more comfortable from here on out!
4 pounds in one week IS awesome...great start. That's what comes from being honest with yourself.
I gotta say, this thread came at the right time. I am sort of in a plateau right now..at my goal but wanting to get in better physical shape...and stopping and making excuses would be easy. Instead I'm looking at how to change things up. It's frustrating to be stuck but where I am is completely my responsibility.
