After being in a weight loss slump and being bogged down with work...I am finally losing weight. I am tracking what I eat and going to the gym very frequently! I can see my goal insight and I will get there this time!

I was always active and went to the gym. The weight loss finally clicked when I realized that I had to get real about the diet. I eat healthy, but I had to admit that I ate more than I should. I just started tracking what I eat and cut back on portion size. I eat a lot of fruits and veggies--you can never have too many them, and I cut back on my beloved sweets. I will treat myself with a sweet if I have had a good day. Of course, sometimes you need to treat yourself, so I do. I accept it and work extra hard at the gym. When I exercise, I do all sorts of things. My current routines are yoga classes, zumba classes, eliptical and weight lifting. I walk at work with some friends too!

I hope to keep losing at this rate until I reach my goal!

You sound like you're doing so well!! I find that once I cut back on sweets, I don't crave them as much anymore. And I am with you on them being "beloved sweets" - I used to require a bowl of ice cream after dinner almost every night. I sort of unintentionally stopped eating it every night, and then it just became less and less frequent that I was eating it. Now I hardly ever think about it anymore!

Your workouts sound great - lots of variety! Good for you - keep up the great work!
