Hailey it doesn't hurt to also take few measurements. Sometimes you will see on a tape measure what you won't see on the scales. Good on you for getting pro-active now. Don't get dis-heartened if the scales are a bit slow in moving, just remember how much better you feel:)

Oh, I didn't think of taking measurements! Definitely something I'm going to start doing, thanks!

Careful with juice. While it sounds healthy, a lot of them contain sugars. Best thing is water with a sugar free mix in like Crystal Light.

I have been on Weight Watchers for 14 months and have lost 96 lbs. Its not really what you eat to be honest, its portion control and how often you eat the bad things. I eat cheesecake, fried chicken, etc... and still lose weight. Its all about moderation, good choices and exercise.

Losing 3 pounds in a week is something to celebrate. A lot of folks would say its great to lose 1 or2 ! So don't say only!!

I like to celebrate mini milestones with a new.... Something within a set price range.
35 lbs lost 10 years ago, And 45 after having my daughter last year... Still more to go...

Careful with myfitnesspal (or any calorie counter). When you exercise and add that it says you can eat more. My friend ended up maintaining her weight because she thought she had to always eat back the calories she burnt from exercise. Not to mention exercise tracking isn't quite accurate so it might say you burnt more calories than you actually did.

I've been doing Jenny Craig since the end of November and I've lost 35-40lbs so far. I like it because I'm still eating foods I love, but they teach you proper portion sizes in meals. I've grown used to eating the smaller portions now that I'm not so hungry all the time. I also still get to eat cheesecakes and other yummy desserts!

Have you had anyone take photos of you [from the front and side] yet? It's really helpful with weight loss. You get to physically see how your body is changing at certain points throughout your weight loss. Some days I felt like I was still as big as when I started, but whenever I look at the halfway photos I notice a huge difference and it really motivates me to push harder c: [Sorry if this has already been suggested. I just skimmed through the topic!]

Good luck! C:

^ great suggestion about pictures. Also when measuring yourself make sure you do extra parts like forearm, neck, waist, thigh, calve. Sometimes you lose weight in different areas other than the obvious or your main focus areas.
