Are you weighing daily? Some think that is a mistake and if it is stressing you out don't do it. Chose one day if you are weighing at home or at meetings and use that weight only. I know, I weigh daily but does not stress me. My weight will go up and down and all around even 2 pounds in either direction during the week but I only count the one weight on the day of w/i. There are reasons for it to fluctuate. If you are exercising you are building muscle which weighs more than the fat you lose. The scale is a tool, not God. Use a tape measure. It gives a more accurate account of what is going on. Mini goals are great, but when you put dates on them sometimes you may feel overwhelmed when not meeting them, think about mini goals without dates, and just accomplishing the goal when your body does get there. Just sugessitions I have learned along this journey.
Never give up or look back,

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
