Your weight loss seems to be going the same way as mine. I lost 10 pounds in the first month, and I have been fluctuating about 3 lbs for the past 6 weeks. I think I have hit a plateau, which means I have to change something. This in my case means either I decrease my caloric intake, or increase my caloric expense. I can't decrease the intake any more without it becoming an unhealthy diet - that leaves me with adding some ... er...exercise. I hate exercising.Query: Can exercising be offered up for the souls in purgatory.
Yes, but only if you really hate it! :-)I need to start walking again.
Next time, before you weigh yourself, go to the bathroom. Yes, you need to walk; wear a pedometer. Drink water.
Faith, I know ALLLLLL the tricks! :-) Shave first, clip your nails, trim nose hair, etc. Walking is about the only kind of exercise I actually like. When I was in grad school, I walked with one of my prof 5 mi. a day.
