    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Help. Need to lose not abuse myself mentally. I get so sad when I dont lose fast. I have now lost 6 pounds in 3 weeks and I am proud of that. I am not patient and I need to learn to be more patient with myself. I am now going to go walk for 30 min. and then do laundry. Its Saturday so my Saturday chores are waiting to keep me busy. My goal is to get to 135, then 130 then possible 125 and the 125 number is only if I think I need too. I am 4'11 and I feel good at 130 in my clothes and the way I look at that number. I know its a bit heavier that the charts show but my mind is not made up about that number yet. I feel it I make small goals then the ultimate goal will be reached in time. I just got to be patient have a super day everyone.

    It sounds like you are doing great so far! 1-2 pounds a week is normal. Definitely keep busy. Also, working out everyday can make you feel better about yourself and motivate you to keep going.
