Well today i am starting my weight loss journey all over again. My goal for now is 30 pounds. To the people who commented on my topic yesterday thank you so much for the advice. I am going to use every bit of it along the way. ( for some reason my topic was posted anonymous yesterday.) Hope everyone has a great day..

Best of luck to you…I usually just deal with one day at a time and try to do my best with portion control, the right foods and exercise; then at the end of the week when I check and I have lost weight, I am spurned on for the next week.

You can edit that:) I always say shoot for a couple of pounds and when reached, aim for a couple of more and so on. Before you know it you'll be surprised at just how much you lost. That way you are not stressed out trying to frantically reach a high number and feeling like you aren't getting there fast enough. Small numbers are reasonable and easily doable.

Good luck anyway you do it.

That is a good way to look at it Red Flower! And you can celebrate your little successes rather than kick yourself for not reaching your goal yet.

Exactly, because I can lose 2-4lbs and feel good, but it will take longer to lose 10-15 and make me sad it didn't drop quick.

I am glad you have been motivated to get back on the horse and do it again!
I also had lost 65 lbs since Feb 2011, and I do have to watch myself or I will put it back on again!

Blessings to you, Bug!

you are most welcome!

EDIT: Are you aware of a sister site to DC called "Obesity Connect"?

mouseover the "visit another community" at the top of this page and then select "obesity" and sign in using your DC login info. (I belong there too) You may find some help and encouragement from those folks there as well!
