    I lost a good bit of weight by cutting out my ice cream and beer. I also only ate greek yogurt and granola for a few weeks.
    Congrats!

    Well, i have reached a plateau at about 10-12 pounds. Have been reasonable without going crazy on anything and I am optimistic that it will move downward again if I stay with it. Noticed that I slacked on the fruit and veggie intake, so that will be my main goal for the coming week. Since I started I only really had 2 slips that were not within the frame I had set for myself, both were sweets - gummi bears or mini snickers. I keep thinking I can eat one at a time but that just doesn't work for me, better to not have any around or I will eat the whole bag. Not much news on the exercise side, doing more there would definitely help also. Will see what I can do.

    Plateaus are fine...just stick with it. I would also try to drink a bunch of water...helps you to stay full--and hydrated:>)

    Good point, I was not drinking enough and when I did, it was too much diet soda for my own liking. I have just brewed some very strong green tea concentrate with a bit of honey that I plan to thin down with ice water and lemon juice to drink instead. We'll see how that goes.

    Good news, Stefan and BH! Keep it up.

    I'm down 3-4 pounds since early August. More importantly, all of my pants are more comfortable, and my belt is a notch or two tighter, which feels good. I know I have less fat now and more muscle, which also feels good.

    I still eat a few meals a week which may not be particularly healthy, but I try to eat well most of the time. Definitely get more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans now. Very occasional sweets are okay, and try to keep the numbers limited. I know I'll snack sometimes, so I try to plan ahead and have some healthier things around when I'm tempted.

    Plan to run 8 miles today--prepping for a 10-miler in about a month, so I'm on track.

    Fantastic! That's really hard to do!

    Down a few pounds. Haven't really done what I need to do, but trying to control portions a bit.

    I got really lazy for a while and stopped exercising but I've got back into it. My equipment consists of resistance bands, an ab wheel and an exercise bike. Those combined with some bodyweight exercises and 15 mins every night has made a huge difference
