I am feeling better and losing slowly, I have a long, long way to go. The biggest problem I have is the new energy and need for less sleep. I hate it! I really enjoyed my long naps and full nights sleep. I need to come up with a new routine to use this extra time.

I really enjoy reading all of the progress reports and little tips. They help inspire me and keep things fresh!

Now about that exercise...............

Way to go Babe.

They say that losing 2 pounds per week is optimal.

Thirty five years ago I had gastro surgery. They severed all the nerves to my stomach. As a result, I can go days without eating. I never get hunger pains, and looking at food doesn't bother me. You would think I have the perfect situation to lose weigh. I have diabetes, so I have to eat. Unfortunately, if it has fat, I want it. This past week because I haven't been eating due to my cold, I have lost seven pounds. Now if only I can keep them off. I will pick at supper tonight. Probably eat only the carrots. At least it is something.

I was doing well for awhile with eating right & exercising. I had lost about 30#. Then, after Thanksgiving I just quit eating right & there is just no time to exercise. I do know what I need to do....

You haave reached a plateau. Quite normal when dieting. Your body is taking the time to adjust to your weight loss. You will start losing again soon.

2 pounds a week is really good.

I am kind of stuck at the moment but I am so close to my goal that I am not worried. I am still losing fat just not weight which is the real goal anyway. If I lose this last bit of belly fat then there would be no reason to lose any more. I will just have to see what happens. I did not put it on over night so it may take a while to take it all off.

Actually, I'm gaining muscle which weighs more than fat, still burning the fat. I'm not worried. If I wasn't losing inches I would be plateaued.
