Current Weight:(18 Feb 07) 167.0 lb
Goal Weight:150.0 lb
following: The South Beach Diet
performance: losing 1.0 lb a week

I'm a 35 year old, homeschooling mom with 2 great kids (ages 8 & 10) and an equally great husband of 14 years. I had gastric bypass surgery 3 years ago and after losing 150 lbs. I find I'm at a stand still with my weight. I took up running last year, so I'm trying to lose the extra lbs. to help with that...I've got one 5k under my belt and I'm hoping to add more and who knows, perhaps a 1/2 marathon!

Leslie Sansone exercise dvd
I did the Leslie Sansone Walk and Kick dvd for the first time this morning...it was a lot of fun! It's a combination of her walking routine and some kickboxing.
I got it for a great deal off ebay...$5 and free shipping. They also sent me a free bonus dvd of her Pilates but I already have it, so I guess a friend of mine will be blessed with it.

Why is it I feel like I am doing this correct and havent seen the scales go down?
I do believe exercise really does help speed things along. My husband is also doing the South Beach and in Phase 1 I actually lost more then he did which has never happened before and the only difference we had was that I exercised and he didn't. I know it sometimes so hard to get started, but if you make time in your schedule and do it pretty consistently you will get to the point to where you really miss it when you do get to do it. I know, hard to believe, but true! Also, I think keeping it different is another key...I usually switch between the several dvd's I have at home so I'm not doing the same thing every day. So give it a try and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

STARTING DIET THIS MONDAY
I think you'll be really happy with the decision you made!!
And from someone else who loves to cook...just think of it as a challenge to try out new recipes. I've gotten 2 of the South Beach cookbooks (think library if you don't want to buy them) and have really enjoyed going through them and trying new things.

ideas for breakfast???
Yeah, having an egg everyday is a challenge for me too, so how about some celery with peanut butter or cream cheese and some canadian bacon. Or some lean lunchmeat wrapped in a lettuce leaf...sometimes I prefer to eat lunch type meals for breakfast.
Hope that helps some...at least once you get through phase 1 you can add in some fruit or whole grain bagel, oatmeal, etc...so hang in there.

High School Kid in NEED of some Breakfast
How about the sausage & cheese "muffins" or some quiche-to-go. They are made ahead in muffin pans, then all you have to do is heat them in the microwave...quick & simple. With the quiche-to-go you simply put whatever ingredients you like (spinach, broccoli, onion, peppers, etc...) into scrambled eggs, top with cheese and bake in muffin cups until set. The sausage & cheese muffins are basically the same with sausage added in.
Hope that helps some!
