Hang in there and don't give up. I know from my past dieting experience, 40 lbs is where if usually throw in the towel. There must be something about the 40 lb mark because I've heard others saying that is where they plateaued. Knowing this helps me to be determined that I will conquer the 40 lb. plateau. Keep working at it. Maybe you could set your goal a little further out since they say that .5 to 2 lbs a week is optimal. At 1 lb. a week, your goal date would be in November, I think. Just think -- If you reach goal in November, you will be more inspired to be good over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.No lost again...I gained 1.4 for a total of 2 lbs gain in 2 weeks. I'm just so upset with myself. I go to the gym do a fast walk for 40 mins and then run for 20 mins for a 7pt activity. I do eat all my pts daily, weekly and activity (I was losing now gaining). I'm to the point that I will not eat my activity pts any more. After looking at my food journal I need to change up my breakfast and lunch during the week. I have eaten the samething for 2 months so I know I need to do something different. I was so upset I stop and bought a box of cookies and ate them on the way home. Bottom line, I was up to 42 lbs and now back to 40 lbs lost. I have another 20 lbs to lose, I was hoping to meet my goal by Sept 15th.
