Good morning Mike! Thanks for starting us off (thanks Mern too). Copied my post from the other thread.

Went to vegetarian dinner at church last night. It was good but too many carbs. I should have stayed away from the dessert table as they only had cake.

Anybody here watch Rachael Ray? She had a whole audience full of people who have lost a lot of weight--some well over a hundred pounds. What an inspiration.

1. Drink 6 glasses of water
2. Eat sensibly
3. Exercise 4X for 30 min
4. Lose 1lb (at least)

Personal goals
1. write more
2. finish cleaning house
3. work on scrapbook

Hello everyone, I am new here so I am not sure if I am even in the right place.

I am 31 years old 5'3 and started getting back on track in May of this year. Since May 2013 I have lost 38lbs (starting weight 233, current 195). I currently alternate running and walking 30 mins per day (working on stamina to run the whole time) 4 days per week, do a 1 hour hip hop cardio class 1 day per week and eat as clean as possible.

I have been feeling discouraged becasue I haven't seen any weight loss in almost 2 weeks now. My goal is to lose 60 more pounds - but not seeing a steady decrease as I have been has been playing with my mind.

I decided to try and log what I eat to see if that might be the problem, and of course looking for people to tell me this is normal and give me virtual pats on the back! LOL

I also would like to start HIT or weight lifting - however my schedule with two small kiddos limits what I am able to squeeze in. Any advise or suggestions?

Thanks for listening.

I'm going to lock this so we don't have 2 threads going at one time. Everyone can copy and paste everything over to the other thread.
