I have been slowly working my way thru the pitfalls of dieting in a household of 5 other non-dieters! It is certainly a challenge to try to cut calories when there are plenty of snack foods, dessert opportunities and activities to attend. Overall I am happy with how well I have been doing; Yesterday marked 5 weeks, and I am down 12.8lbs. I hit my first mini-goal with this weigh in- so that was nice. I am just about on schedule, my goal had been 2lbs a week. I'm not sure I will be able to maintain that level of loss for ever, but now while there is so much to go I'd like to see 8lbs a month. It is sad to think I'm down this far and you can't really even see a difference... When I think about it, its sort of overwhelming... I really do have a long way to go! I'll be excited when my clothes start to get too big, that will be my first real reward for the hard work! I have had some slip ups here and there, a splurge or two but overall I remain committed to this- even though it is difficult!
