I'm eating way under my allotted 1,700 calories per day and it's slow going. BUT, I feel slimmer and my pants fit a little looser. Probably because of the exerise and reduced bloating?

I think because you exercise and gain muscle your weight doesn't go down but your shape changes. (At least I hope so because I am in the same place as you!)

Yes, I'd have to agree. Keep up the good work & it'd play off -- both in how your clothes fit & on the scale.

Having my clothes fit better is definitely a plus, but I want that number down!

Lol I totally understand but you get so many other benefits from healthy eating and exercise, more energy,stronger bones, better immune system...and less guilt about that glass of wine with dinner Smile you need to appreciate all of it so you stay motivated!

Oh, don't misunderstand there is NO guilt about my wine! I rarely drink during the work week, but I do enjoy my vino on the weekends! I don't have a sweet tooth, so that's my "sweet" indulgence. LOL

Keep up the good work & enjoy your weekend wine! If we give up too much, we can set ourselves up for failure, so I think you are doing it the right way.

Hope you guys have been doing well. I have had a rough week and exercise and diet have struggled. My daughters wedding is in May. Need to turn it around today!

Today is another day! For me, it really helps to take it just this one day or one meal or bite or moment at a time. And, don't be too hard on yourself! We're each on our own journey & it will have its ups & downs... & maybe some potholes & u-turns. Hang in there, and keep posting & logging here. By supporting each other, we can all succeed in our healthy eating & living goals! Good Luck!

Thanks for the support. I'm back on track. I do have a big goal this month but this is really about the long haul. I want to be healthy and feel physically strong as I age.
