Is anyone else finding it hard to get the lbs off? I am doing Weight Watchers and working out a ton.  Currently I am burning about 3500 calories a week with exercise on top of the dieting with Weight Watchers.  I started on October 19 and since then have only lost 30 lbs.  Today I weighed in and only lost 1 lb this week.  I feel like why in the world am I busting my butt so hard and being so good when I am only losing a pound a week?  I know they say 1-2 lbs a week is good but I feel like I should be closer to the 2 than the 1 considering how much I am doing.  Any advice for me?  I started at 184 lbs and I am currently 154 lbs.  I have 24 more pounds to lose until I hit my goal.

Aw, sorry you're frustrated but that is actually really good progress! It will get a bit harder the closer you get to your goal. What exercise are you doing? Are you getting any work with weights in?

I burn 400-500 calories a day on the treadmill, I do intervals so my body doesn't get used to it.  I swim 2-3 times a week.  I also walk at the track with a friend 3 hours a week.  I do free weights about 20 minutes a day at home.  I used to do Curves but find it too hard to get there so I bought the treadmill.  I am going to be starting horseback riding again when I lose 40 lbs (10 more lbs to go).  I think I am getting pretty well-rounded exercise but I feel like it's not enough.

It might not seem like it to you, but 30 lbs since October is great! Keep doing what you're doing and those last few pounds will come off.
