Hi Myra, sounds like you are making some good choices, but it doesn't seem like a lot of food. Do you know about how many calories you are eating? Are you a not-so-big person to begin with, and how close are you to your goal weight? Also, I don't know if it's the case or not for you, but sometimes being post-menopausal will make the weight slow to come off. Those are just some reasons I can think of. Also, if you have been doing the same exercises for the same time period at the same intensity for a while, your body may have adapted and you might want to think about ways to change it up a little bit.

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.

Yeah, I'm going to go along with cj on this one, it doesn't seem like a lot of food and although not low protein, not high either. I don't eat the same things everyday, but here's a typical day:

Breakfast: sandwich
Banana (pre workout)
3 thin slices of turkey
1 ounce reduced fat cheese
1 cup of skim milk
1 scoop of protein powder
2 cups of coffee (the milk and protein powder go into the coffee)

Morning Snack:

Lunch: Taco Salad
4 oz chicken breast
3-4 cups of lettuce
1 medium tomato diced
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
1 oz reduced fat cheese (optional)

Afternoon Snack:
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
3/4 cup blueberries

6 oz tilapia fillet
1 cup green beans
1 cup diced cooked carrots
1/2 cup cook spinach

This is around 1,350-1,500 calories and close to 40/40/20 give or take.
Starting weight: 244.6 lbs. 10/01/09
Pounds lost: 80.6 lbs
Current weight: 164 lbs
Goal weight: 120 lbs
Weight to go: 44 lbs
Goal Date: 1/1/13
