Hi krms, congratulations on your weight loss! That was great that you made it through the holiday season and all with only gaining 4 lbs. The first week is the hardest. There's a weekly motivation thread here where each Monday people post their goals for the week and report back in about how they're doing. Everyone has different goals. Most aren't specifically weight related - more about the steps we're taking to lose the weight. For example, my goals are no sugar & white flour, 1200-1500 calories daily, an hour of extra movement a day (walking, yard work, yoga, exercise bike, etc.). You ought to consider joining in there. That thread and entering everything I eat into the food tracker are keeping me accountable.
