Three more pounds are gone. It seems to be a trend for me. I have lost three pounds every week for the last three weeks since I've joined. 9lbs. in total.

    @BDYNAMIC I walk a minimal of one hour every-other day for a total of three times a week, and I do strength training the days I am not walking for 30 minutes two days a week. I walk to the store for those little thing I may need in the home instead of the norm of starting up the car to drive five blocks. That way I log more miles for cardio and CALORIES BURNED I also saved some gas, I have stuck to the menu Sparkpeople lay out for me. I deviate from it slightly but not much. I even allow myself a cheat day. I don't recommend this for everyone My first week I had ribs. My second week fried fish and jumbo shrimp, but I bust my butt the next day after these cheats. I make it a point to get eight hours of sleep. Your body loses weight while you sleep, but it only kicks in after six hours of continues sleep, so if your getting only five or six hours of sleep this process hasn't kicked in yet. Good luck to ALL emoticon

My first week with you guys and I wasn't really sure this program would work for me. Especially when i weighed in at 260lb. then weighed in three days later, only to find I had gained 2lbs. But after a full week following the food, fitness plan I weigh 257lb. Off to do my bench press workout.

    It is a process fitting in healthy eating habits with a work schedule. I have similiar issues with a family history of diabetes and losing my mother to the disease and a close diagnosis myself.
I would suggest and it is only a suggestion, as I am not am expert,that you do some research into meal plans or working with the Sparkpeople plan. There will be some ups and downs, just stay focused on your plan. Use some discipline and determination to achieve your goals.
I see you are off to strength training ,stick with it and you will get the results you want. Good luck to you.
I also like to use . It is great for motivation,meal plans and exercise. emoticon
