I'm 8 1/2 months into my new way of life and I've lost almost 40 lbs. Lately I've hit a brick wall though. I want to cheat on my food more often and don't want to work out as hard. I hope I get over this hump soon. I have 10-15 more pounds to go!

I use a program (on the computer or a smart phone app) called myfitnesspal.com and it has helped so much! And it's FREE! It does make it easier for me with Bruce on board with me..........finally! He has lost almost 30 lbs and actually he is at his ideal weight. Now he is just adjusting his plan to build more muscle.

My trainer is upping my weights too since I am getting stronger now.

I hope everyone is still on their plans and doing good. I'm sure it will get harder as it gets more into summer.

Good luck everyone!!!
