Down

Well I am happy to report I am down .6. At least it is something. However I cant be too satisfied as I am still up .2 from where I was last week, and last week I had TOM. Ironic that I never thought I would actually weigh less during TOM.

Thanks for all the kind suggestions to mix things up. Right now I am incorporating some foods that Cammy suggested help kick those last few pounds. Primarily I am focusing on adding more pears and almonds. Worth a try at least! I also have continued to try new meals every week. I have a gotten a lot of suggestions to mix things up which I should say I have done fairly reguarly for almost the entire time I have been on this journy. One goal was to always try new meals and keep myself interested in food. While I am sure it has helped to get me this far, I cant say that new meals really are making much of a difference right now.

I guess I am going to have to try and kick up the exercise more as well. Now that it is summer and doesnt get dark for a while and theres nothing on TV, I have no excuse. I know I will get to my goal, its just a frustrating slow moving process. For so long I was used to seeing that scale go down, almost like a reward for all my hard work. Now its hard to see that. The scale doesnt go down, I am not dropping sizes, Im not recieving any more compliments. Its hard to see that what I have accomplished so far is real and still important.

Yay, you're like me though--slow and steady.

I have to mix things up more in the food department too. I've been a bit better but could try some new things (still working at getting fish into my diet, blecch!)

You're right..you will get to your goal, it's just a slow process. It's so much more frustrating when you are so close, too. I wish you lots of luck. Sounds like you are trying to do what it takes to reach your goal. You rock!
