Hey LadyB: You are doing really well. Just think...that is a big bag of dog food you are not carrying around your middle and won't be seeing it again. Everyone loses at a different rate. Try to think about how well you are feeling and moving and the weight loss is just gravy! I lost mine like gangbusters, and think that if I hadn't lost so rapidly that I might have had time to adjust better and picked up better habits. You can't NOT lose if you are following the plan!

I think losing slower as long as you KEEP losing is a good thing. it's the stalls that kill me.

though I lost a lot in the first three months...60lbs...it slowed down to a crawl after that! Stall after stall! It can be frustrating. In fact, the last 70+ lbs took me another year+, so I know what you mean. BUT slow is good, honey. It lets your body and mind catch up! Have your written down you measurements? Do it now if you haven't...it's another great indicator besides just the scale.

Do as the dr. tells you...eat well and exercise because you deserve it...not only to see a change in numbers...we must love ourselves first and formost...for if we don't, who will?
