    I’ve been following your posts since you shot into the boards the other day and was crossing my fingers you’d post some more. Wonderful job! For every person who comes here and complains or makes excuses why they can’t do it, there’s one of you plugging away and working your *kitten* off (literally) behind the scenes.

    Just awesome, awesome, awesome!!!!

    I started a blog if your interested - I am going to from here on out keep a running diary of my thoughts, feelings, success, and challenges.

    Happy Valentines Day Everyone. Unfortunately ,I don't have good news this morning I didn't reach my goal I actyally gained .04 oz so now I am .06 away from goal. But I am not discouraged I have till my Birthday in April. And this is a journey not a race. I have been working hard for the past 2 years so no time to give up. Anything could account for the gain, I slept in this morning because it was so cold I couldn't get up so I didn't weight at the same time. I may be at a plateau and they happen and they don't last forever. It's cold and I generally lose slower in the winter than in the warmer months. I am so close my body and metabolism has probably slowed. I am going to just take it in stride and move on. My positive affirmation for today is :
    My mind is clear of self-doubt, and I am ready to embrace every challenge that comes my way.

    What an inspiration! It helps to see proof that it’s possible. I’m 4’8” and was at 173 this time last year. Down to 165 now. My weight loss has stalled since late summer, although I still consider it a victory to have stopped the weight gain and not backslide. I’ve just signed up for this program and I’m hoping it will be the tool I need to get to 100. Still a long journey yet in front of me, but your story helps provide encouragement. God speed.

    You can do it. Stalls happen. The important thing is not to let the stalls get you down. I have had many stalls or I call the plateaus in the last 2 years. I do 2 things I get the measuring tape out and see how many inches I have lost because the scale doesn't always tell the whole story. Like this morning I didn't lose any weight but I lost a total of 4 inches between my arms 1/2 in, waist 1 1/2, bust 1/2 , hips 1, thighs 1/2 . The other thing I do is I go back and look at my diary and see what I ate. Especially the night before I weighted. So just hang in there the journey is long but the rewards at the end are worth it. Take care and Happy Valentines Day and good luck on your journey. <3
