Red face newbie

Hello all. I'm glad I've found this site. I've been working out with a trainer for over a year and have lost about 20 pounds. I'm both disappointed that I haven't lost more and thrilled that I've lost at least that much.

I have lost over 34 inches overall and have been able to go down about two dress sizes.

Most of my friends are either very fit or over weight and not interested in losing weight. So I've been really struggling to do this.

Hello and welcome.

Congrats on your weight loss and all the inches.

You did not mention your eating plan. Exercise is an important part of losing weight and getting into shape and, in fact, when you work out you gain muscle, which weighs much more than fat. But eating properly also plays a very important role in weight loss. What type of plan are you on?

There is a lot of support and encouragement here; please feel free to look around the forum and join in anywhere you feel there is a "fit."

Thanks, Misti.
I've tried a couple of different eating plans. One is called Eat,Stop,Eat which I lost about 10 pounds on and then stopped after my trainer jumped all over me for using.
The second was the plan she recommended which is the personaltrainerfood(.com) They send you prepackaged frozen meals (a months worth at a time). It's basically a low carb eating plan and the food is convenient and pretty tasty.
But I have a really hard time doing such a low carb plan for very long. I CRAVE bread.
I can usually stick to the plan for a month then bam I'm eating toast and it's all downhill from there.
