It's funny how I can gear myself up Monday and Tuesday, then I weigh in Wednesday and fall off the wagon. I haven't done too bad the last week but I have not exercised in the slightest. Gotta keep that metabolism UP!!!!

That is hilarious (And TRUE). Seriously Monday and Tuesday in particular are torture. I was thinking to myself I just need to carry this through and be extra good Wednesday night, Thurs, etc and I will really be on the right track.

Dammit, why am I not losing weight anymore? Is it cos my period is nearing or is it like some of you, low carb = stagnant weight? Gosh, I'm do demoralized. I try to squeeze in some exercise but I thought of the 3:7 rule. Exercise only helps 30% but diet is the key. Maybe I should do something to my diet.. >:(

^Exercise will not help you lose weight if diet is not controlled. Here is an old Time article that has stuck with me:
http://www.time.com/time/magazine/ar...914974,00.html

It's so true, and the reason why I wasn't losing weight even though I was exercising 7 days a week was due to my eating. I burn 200-500 calories, but consume 2000-4000 calories on a given day. That won't help me lose weight.

Now I exercise at least 30 minutes a day and eat 1500-2000 calories a day, max. I'm seeing results, finally. And a classmate said I looked thinner. I was over the moon.

That's encouraging ^^ Thanks for sharing. I read that article too awhile ago but can't say I have 100% put into practice. Need to make some changes and stick to it.

The last two days I have been super good eating, but I am already thinking "Ok tomorrow if I've lost weight I will have Mexican for dinner."

I saw a pin on Pinterest that said "Do not reward yourself with food. You are not a dog." I totally do that!!! I need to find something else instead. Maybe purchasing a new nail polish every week or something.

Being accountable is great though. Even if it's not through this forum, but with actual friends or coworkers would help make you accountable for your actions. :) Good luck!
I know, nothing gives you a swift kick in the behind like the reality that you only have X amount of time! Procrastination at its finest Good luck to you as well!

I'm still going! The weekend will be a challenge, but I'm planning ahead and avoiding foodie events except for one brunch. I need strength and accountability. Thanks for everyone's support!

I am at exactly the same as last week - not even a tenth of a pound of difference. I guess that is better than going up but I was hoping to be down another pound.

Cranky and crampy this week - but stuck with it. I'm down 3 pounds this week. I ran a little and walked this week, plus the pushups.
