performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

I'm married, have two children, work full time, and taking classes half time for my graduate degree. After a knee injury about a year ago, I fell off the healthy lifestyle bandwangon and gained 18 pounds. I'm looking to change my lifestyle to include making smarter food choices, eating less, and exercising regularly.

Starting out
Hey, don't loose hope. I had the same issue when I did my first BFL challenge. I lost most of my weight the first 6 weeks, then it didn't seem like I was making any progress. This time around I'm eating more calories and making sure I hit my "10s" during my workouts and I'm making better progress physically, but not on the scale. It sounds like you are making progress too, but maybe not on the scale. It's all about how you feel and look. Try not to focus too much on the scale.

kettle bell
I saw something on Kettle bell's this morning on the news. It looks interesting. I have a touchy back though. It almost looks like it might not be good for people with back problems. What do you think?
