Goal Weight:180.0 lb
following: sortiz1's own diet
performance: gaining 0.6 lb a week

I am a woman that has always struggled with her weight. When I was younger I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. When I was first diagnosed I lost 25 lbs! At the age of 19 I had my first and only child and during the pregnancy I gained about 15-20 lbs. After I had my baby I then went on to gain an additional 40-45 lbs. I have never been a skinny person nor do I wish to be very skinny (no offence to anyone who is or wants to be), all I want is to get to a comfortable weight for me which is about 170 lbs. Yes, I do realize that 170 lbs on a 5'5" person is still overweight, but for me that was when I felt my best.

Goal #1: Walk at least 2 miles 5 days a week for a month....

Goal #2: Lose 5 lbs...

Goal #3: Be able to jog 1/4 of those 2 miles...

I joined fatsecret 2-3 weeks ago and have lost 5-6 pounds since then. I feel as though it should be more and that I should have accomplished more by now. I have anxiety over this because I feel that I am doing things right, I have reduced my caloric intake to around 1500 calories and exercise 30-45 minutes a day and still don't see the results that I want to see. Any words of advice, encouragement, condemnation, anything would be nice.
