Okay -- maybe its not THAT bad - but I am getting frustrated.

From June to December 2002 I lost 32 pounds eating low carb (247 to 215). Then I slacked off over the holidays. Jan 31st (first day of WISH challenge) I was 222. Well, after slowly getting back in to the swing of things the first three weeks I finally committed and did VERY WELL the next two weeks --- lost down to 219 and then back up to 222. Saturday I thought "The Hell with it" and ate some sweets (pretty many). As of monday I've gained and am up to 224!!!!!!!!!!!!

So here goes ----- A 2 week committment
(and then I'll re-evaluate).

I walked on my treadmill (first time in YEARS) for 15 min this morning. And will walk at least 15 min day.

Multi Vitamin and Flaxseed oil capsule daily

Metamucil dose daily

Minimum of 4 16oz bottles of water daily.

Journal what I eat/drink

I REALLY want to get this show on the road again! I am SO HAPPY for everyone that is succeeding but I WANT MY CLIPPIE TOO (stomping up and down right now :bounce: )

PLEASE, PLEASE lets this commitment get me my 5 pound clippie by 3/22! I will need to lose the 2 I've gained (since the challenge started) plus 5 more! :cool:

It seems that your recommitment has great focus. Do not give up.

I discovered that the journal and movement worked for me. I could not do any loss without writing down every crumb or liquid I consumed and making myself accountable for it. I also found I could not lose without movement. Exercise is my key and I find it so boring. Perhaps this might help you: I have found that if I would turn on the TV and watch a 1/2 hour program while doing treadmill or bicycle or any type of exercise that it was somewhat helpful.

So, you go and don't give up. If you falter get back in. You will make it!

Jody, I know it is frustrating, I think we all have been there. But it sounds like you have a concrete plan, you sound motivated and raring to go. We are here for you to cheer you on in your efforts. :bounce:YOU CAN DO IT!!!!:bounce:

Jody, I did the same thing, sort of. I lost 18 pounds prior to WISH and once I took the challenge the weight loss seemed to stop.

I went a whole month with only fluid gains :( But I lost two pounds last week, so there is hope.

Are you checking to see if you are in ketosis? That's a good clue too.

You can do this. Start induction again...you sound very committed. I still don't have my first 5 pound loss clippie, either. I know how frustrating it is.

Hang in there. You can do this. We can do this <b>together</b>!
