welcome fellow illinis-ian!! It must be an Illinois thing with not being able to lose weight. I blame the cold weather!!
All joking aside katie is right we are a great bunch of people. And we will help motivate you whenever needed. Just ask and you shall recieve!! Keep up with the diet. Have you thought about doing TO *take off* again? Maybe that will kickstart things. As for cheats,
maybe thats part of the reason you keep staying within those 2 lbs. Try TO and try not to cheat. Its so hard. And we all do it but you gotta get your body in motion. Dont give in to the temptations. As one of the chickies once told me. Every cheat is a derailment to your goal and its just makes it that much longer until you reach goal.
