Keep at it. When there seems to be nothing coming off it is disheartening. I am just counting calories as I only just started but being over 40 it seems slow to shift even though I have a new, very active job up and down stairs all day. I also work in a bakery so have pity on me! I need to wear a wetsuit for an activity holiday with my teenagers in August so have a vanity reason to lose the extra. My health seems psychologically less important - if you know what I mean!
