I wonder what is up with that.......

Has anyone else lost 10 to 15 pounds and still feel they look the same?

Another check in

One more pound lost.

I'm now down a total of 11 pounds. It's only coming off 1/2pound per week but I'll take it.

Amy - I'm sure no one could tell I've lost 11 pounds. It usually takes at least 20 lbs for even me to notice a difference.

Thanks again for all the kind words.

Joan

You have to celebrate small victory's or you would probably give up. I'm either 1/3, 1/4 or 1/5 the way to goal. I see the goal as a moving target. Let's get to 30lb loss before I move goal to 40 or 50lb loss.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement.

Joan
Just wanted to pop in and say congrats!!!! WTG

Back again with an update.

I have been doing STS and have only this week and next before I have completed meso 3. I have not lost any weight since Feb. and was feeling quite discouraged. I was eating about the same as when I was losing 1/2lb per week but not logging it in until last week. While I was following Cathe's sts rotation with cardio, it was not as much cardio as when I was losing. I have not done the ab disc.

GOOD NEWS

My waist is down 2", my hips are down 2", and each thigh is down 1 1/4 ".
I love STS and now I will work on my diet again.

Joan

Thanks Kitterfly.

One more pound lost for a total of 13lbs. I decided the most important thing was to have a realistic plan to get to 140lb. Of course I should be less than 140 but I did say realistic. I want to lose a pound a week except for the week of my Christmas party (Dec 18), the week of Christmas and New Years and the first two weeks of April (I'm a CPA).

I hope to stay the same on those weeks. So far I am following plan.

Joan
