performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

I'm a 27 yrs old Landscape Architect, wife and mom. I've already lost almost 20 kg( around 40 pounds), but there is long way to go.

A bit of weight and food history would sound like this: never had problems with weight before (was 53 to maximum 62 kg), but after getting pregnant simply gained soooo much weight (up to 82 kg or so). Gave birth, lost a bit then after some time got into dieting and proper sport almost every day. Currently I'm around 62 kg, and looking forward to get into a better shape than ever.

I have a 1 year Yoga commitment. The day when I write this bio 3 months had passed and I have 9 more months to go. I practice Hatha Yoga because that's the one that I find most suitable for me now. I'm looking also into Ashtanga Yoga, but first need to get more acquainted with Hatha.

A very important role into keeping me motivated was played by Fatsecret. There were times when I wanted to quit the weight loss journey (now a health journey).

Since I've lost weight, I.............
Good idea with this tread. These are mine. Since I've lost weight:
- I have more energy, can move faster and better.
- I feel better about my body.
- i can fit into that pair of jeans.
- Can bend easily to touch the floor without bending my knees.
- i don't crave sweets and I am not as hungry as before, but I eat quite allot.(low calorie food)

Thanks everyone for your reply, it's good to read your ideas and will simply try to apply and decide to stick with what will fit to my case. For the begining will start with walking and some intervals, as some of you suggested, will also try join the challenge, check the heart rate and everything. Will see what comes out of all this. I am determined to give jogging a try for a time, and see maybe I can start liking such.
