    I have lost the first 15 of my 70 (ish) since joining 12/28/20. Here's the thing that most people with this amount of weight to lose already know: it's going to take a long time, it's going to take dedication and rededication, it's going to take support however you can find it. I'm walking more than I ever have on a regular basis, I'm logging in my food and exercise and eventually it's going to pay off. In the meantime, I'm building new habits, enforcing healthier choices 95% of the time, and feeling pretty darn good.

    Let's do this!

    Good morning all! I've been logging foods for 100 days and losing steadily until last week. My weight has stayed stuck and even bounced up a pound for at least ten days, so I guess that is called a stall or plateau which I understand are normal but I still don't like it. Finally, the scale moved downward again this morning, thank goodness. It's frustrating when you know you're not overeating but the scale goes up or doesn't budge. I think my body was holding onto a lot of water from the extra long walks and other exercises I was doing. I took two days of rest, stayed strictly within my calorie budget, drank a lot of water and then the scale moved. I thought it might because I was in the bathroom a lot yesterday, the water seemed to go right through me.

    Today's Tip: You will stall in your weight loss efforts at some point. That is normal. Wait it out, be patient, and maybe try resting your body for a day.

    Gratitude: I am thankful for my sturdy legs and hips and feet. I have been pushing them really hard and they have not failed me, even if the left hip is still a pain. I will try to remember to warm them up and stretch them out before I ask them for mileage.
