Well had a weight gain but I believe it's muscle since I've eaten well and my metabolism is up and I feel stronger. This week I will get all my cardio in and up my levels. Also, I have to watch portion sizes and be sure to watch carb levels. To answer my own question, Do I feel better than last week? The answer is YES!! I WILL NOT QUIT!!

214.8 lb Lost so far: 33.8 lb.    Still to go: 69.8 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

When I train with a trainer, it always takes me longer to see the scale. I'm sure it has to do with the muscle, but when I walk two minutes or three and run one minute for a workout... the scale moves faster. I have a trainer who works my butt off, but my scale is moving slow.. and I'm sure its muscle inflation.. I read that when you put your body through hard training it retains a lot of water until it actually adjusts,...and then it drops. keep up the good work

Thanks DeeJones1584 for this reminder, i was discussing this with my husband and he said the same thing, this is our 2nd journey to weight loss and we had worked with a trainer before and he reminded me of these adjustments. I will be sure to using interval training, I have a pin on pintrest that gives me week by week interval training for the treadmill, I started it last week and I can tell the difference in the workout, so I will continue to to that. Thanks again!!!

Hey Wallysnots, glad to hear your not letting your accident get in the way, many people wouldn't even continue on after something like that! Even though I came up with this challenge, it's STILL a challenge for me! Pushing hard daily!! Good luck to you ladies this week!!!

Tomorrow is one week of eating on program. For me "on program" menas no flour or sugar, Isagenix shakes for breakfast and lunch, a snack in between each meal (an apple, 3 oz of protein, an egg, etc), and a healthy dinner of protein/ veggies /fruit. Calories between 1200-1500 and plenty of water. I hope I see a good loss tomorrow.
