I am kinda put off on coming to this site since everyone seems to be just perfect-everything i want to be but they're not happy. i just want to lose my weight buti have hit a platue and its so hard to break that especially during the holidays and i thought maybe i could do this but its really hard and i wish i could be like the people that post that they have lost like 40 pounds but i have only lost 15 in about 4 or 5 months.

Just think - the slower its lost the longer it'll stay off! I'm gonna have to work for at least 10 months before I get to my ideal weight so dont worry about it! AlsoIts not healthy to lose weight really fast. 15lbs is really good!

that;'s a great weight loss! it's taken me 5 months to lose 22 pounds so far. i was just frustrated about it yesterday- but don't give up! it comes off slowly but just think of how great it will feel to be at your goal in however long from here. it doesn't matter in the length of time during the weight loss journey- all that matters is that you learn something great out of it and that you come out successful. slow and steady wins the race and keeps the weight off too!!!

15 lbs is incredible!!! Plateau's are inevitable...your body is getting used to losing weight...just keep giving it your all, you should lose more, and if you don't...keep eating healthy and exercising because the weight that you are at might be good for your body. Good luck:-)
