performance: gaining 0.4 lb a week

Hi, my name is Rachel. I'm 27 years old, 5'8", looking to get down to 135 pounds. I am from Illinois, near St Louis, and work as a medical transcriptionist. I have 2 dogs, Artemis and Layla.

I was doing the alli plan, then Weight Watchers for several months, and then I was just trying to gradually eat healthier and not overdo it (but not "diet"), and then tried using the Gabriel Method as a guide.

I'm not very athletic and I feel like exercise is one of the hardest parts for me to commit to but is also key because I have always been a yo-yo dieter, and that really messes with your muscle mass and, in turn, metabolism. I'm walking for exercise and trying not to get too crazy with it and end up burnt out and quitting.

One big goal is to fit into my size 12s, then BURN EVERY PIECE OF CLOTHING FROM SIZE 16-22!!! Ho-yeah. ^-^

ADDENDUM: Been gone for a couple of years, heh. Tried many, many more diets in those 2 years. I've been introduced to the Beck Diet Solution and have started that along with calorie counting, (1,500 calories/day), as my diet. Makes me feel a little pathetic that I'm EXACTLY where I was 2 years ago weight-wise, thinking back on the past 2 years of dieting and exercising. Ready for this struggle to be over once and for all, especially before I hit the big 3-0.

I chose to try slimladyinside's Italian Beef Stir Fry, and it was really good! I like how easy it was to make. I'm not much of a cook, y-know. I tend to get sidetracked and things burn. Embarassed No prob this time, though!

I chose to repeat week 3 and stretch this week. As a result, it has been easier to get myself to exercise every day as well--YAY!!!

Last night I used the new step my bf got for me! I've been wanting one of those things for weeks!!! It didn't come with a video or anything, but luckily there are LOTS of aerobics instructors on FitTV who use the step in their workouts. Smile This afternoon I will use the step to workout again. I likes it. Very Happy

My goal this challenge is to get some form of exercise every day this week.
Last night I did a kick-boxing cardio workout for about 30 minutes. The show was an hour long, but I just couldn't finish it. I was pooped!
