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:>)

Weighed in at 278 this morning down from 336 in about 4 months.
It only hurts til the pain goes away........
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.
Keep it going, everyone. You are my role models.
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
