    Hello, ladies! I was perusing your thread and wanted to add that I lost 15 lbs from last Christmas. I would suggest 6 small meals a day, NEVER skip breakfast, cut out soda (iced tea is a diuretic also). Also, weight training is terrific for permanent loss-I dropped 2 dress sizes. Yoga is good for stress too.

    Presently 210;5' 5" was 215 about 2 months ago. Will work on getting the extras off slowly.
    About 6 yrs ago I lost 28-32 lbs. by jogging, walking, dancercing, minimized my meals, and drank black coffee in the a.m.
    I really felt like a spring chicken then, but when my friends saw me at first, they sure did n't like my lmy new look, but I was doing it for me. Felt like I could have done anything. Loosing wt. gives you such a good stir......There is a thread mill at home so I will utilize it. So it is not u guys alone.

    hey I started weight watchers a few weeks ago. School has put the pounds on! I lost 7 lbs in 3 weeks. It seemed effortless. You follow a point system. I really really like it. I was amazed at how losing just a few lbs made me feel sooo much better! I weigh about 171 now and am 5'5''. I want to be 135 lb or just see the size 10 again!! My hubby started the diet with me. he lost 15 lbs. It was easy. I bought the cook books and bought some serving spoons to help with portion control and bought a scale just to make sure I knew how much 4 oz of chicken or meat looked like. The food is great. My hubby and I have tried to walk 30 mins a few days a week. His lab work improved so much in 3 weeks it was unbelievable. cholesteral down to normal levels and lipid count was normal. we were amazed.

    It is easy. has anyone else tried weight watchers?

    anyhow, i am very thankful to have read your post!

    I am 5'4" and 153#...not to bad but I feel my best at 135 (and fit a size 10 comfortably). 16 months ago I was 180#...I quit working nights and stopped eating candy and chips to stay awake and the weight came off on its own. My daily calories are 1500 to 1700, I am not a snacker and I drink maybe 1 pop per week (water and coffee junkie), in general I don't have a big appetite...I feel the hungries quite a bit but have a rule that I only eat what I want...when I want it so I don't do much eating for the sake of eating.

    I have major mobility problems...5 back surgeries and severe stenosis T10 to S1, I spend about 25% of my time in a wheel chair...walking, running, bike riding (>5 min), weight training etc are not options...basicly if it involves being on my feet >5 minutes, lifting >10# more than once or bending it is out of the question. All of my weight is around my middle.

    Does anybody have any ideas for some very low to no impact stuff to increase my metobolic rate so I can get off this plateau?

    Thanks!

    To Kids R Fun --- Do you have a gym or other place that has water aerobics? Great for the body by using natural resistance yet supporting you at the same time.

    Now if I could only listen to my own wisdom I wouldn't be in the slump I am.
    I think it's the hormones talking today. The menstral monster attacked again. 2 wks of the bloated feeling.

    Question: Can you not eat enough so that your body won't allow itself to loose weight?

    Anyway still holding at 190 but would really like to loose at least 10 before hubby comes back from overseas assignment. He'll be back in Nov. or Feb. depends on the Husein thing. Thanks for letting me vent. It's just one of those days.

    How's everyone doing this week?

    I've been bad all week, was in Kentucky last weekend & enjoyed the southern food too much & haven't even bothered to lift even a finger in exercise this week. I think I've lost my motivation...so to find it I got the scale out of the closet :chuckle So I'll probably be very motivated again later today...

    Good Luck Everyone! :kiss

    I haven't even,got on the scale. I am not sure I can deal with losing weight and all the stress of this program.

    Loosing weight no longer seems a priority, maybe after the course settles down a bit more.

    But good luck to all of you who are managing to stick with it.
