    Brief Update

    Congrats NikiJ!
  15. Hey Lisa - I've got similar challenges in that my body is fighting me for every last ounce lost! I've found that if I vary my caloric intake every couple of days (like more soup based protein on one day and solid on another day), I can sometimes make my body shake off a little more weight. Also, if I don't exercise at least twice a week, I'm completely stalled. I've not put a calorie number to this game yet but I know exercise gets the scales moving every week that weight loss slows down. Good luck as you figure out how to balance to get your best results.
  16. I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. Praying that they'll discover what's wrong and that you'll be on the path to healing well real soon.
