I weighed in yesterday and FINALLY broke my plateau. I lost 3 lbs last week, 2 lbs were old weight from the holidays and 1 lb was fresh fat now gone!!!! I am now down 57 lbs since Aug 2012. It has been a long time coming and the weight is slowly coming off now, mostly due to my cheats BUT this is the longest that I have eaten this way for as long as I can remember. Could It finally be a LIFESTYLE change ????? I hope so.
I need to be more diligent about activity now. I get some but I am not always consistent.
I leave for a 9 day vacation this week so I am a little nervous about my willpower for those days but I have to take it 1 day at a time. I CAN DO THIS, THIS IS NORMAL LIFE STUFF, RIGHT???

I broke a 5 month plateau just this morning, too. You're right in that it really does take diligence...but it's so worth it, isn't it?!?!?!

Way to go, CCerza!!! I want to follow in your footsteps. I've been in a bit of a plateau for the past 6 months. I've lost 52 lbs. since Dec 2012, so our progress is similar. Slow and steady weight loss is ideal so you're doing great. We'll get there!

I have a problem with keeping the weight off, I have lost 2 pounds in a week only to gain it all back in the next four days. It has been really difficult to stick to my diet, but I am hoping to change that. Any advice on how to find will power? Thank you in advance Smile

Here's the ultimate deterrent....

If it is a plant, eat it, if it comes from a plant, don't!

"Time is going to pass whether you start today or not, why not start today so that you can say in a year 'WOW I've lost X amounts of weight' versus saying 'WOW I COULD have lost X amount of weight'" Think about it!

Nice work! It really comes down to patience and persistence. If you're doing all the right things, it WILL come off eventually (just not always as quickly as we'd like...)

Congratulations Ccerza! and don't forget to reset your RDI now that you've lost some.

I prefer to use this site, not the one here on FS

Keep up the great work !

Aw crap. The top fell off the salt shaker as I was 'gently' seasoning my lovely chicken stew. Had to go in the bin. Good thing there was enough left to rescue the operation lmao - wow, imagine ...

How do i add carb to diary
I want to just add carbs and calories to my diary for a recipe I made without adding the entire ingredients to calculate. Is there a way to do this?
