I'm now a week into this plan and I have to say it's going really well. I tracked EVERYTHING I ate, used my heart rate monitor for all my workouts, and last week I had a calorie deficit of 2629. I'm very happy with that, considering one night I ... Read more

I'm really toeing the line of being under 100 lbs lost. At my lowest weight I was 160, and this morning I'm 173. This is unacceptable, especially going into the holiday season. I've been stressed, and this has lead to emotional eating, especiall... Read more
