Well, thanks for all of your encouragement. Although I still haven't made any real progress my muscles are starting to feel a lot more "toned" so I count that as a huge up-lifter!
I did end up getting my thyroid tested last week and the results were totally normal so the only real reason for not loosing weight is simply that my body is resisting it, I guess....bummer....
I'm still just working really hard every single day and hoping that one of these days soon it will start to pay off. I'm running and walking further than before and now I'm also doing more of the P90X workout videos too. (they are HARD!!)
Anyway, I wanted to post an update for those of you who were concerned for my thyroid. (It's sad to say that I was secretly hoping that was the problem...I guess I should be really glad that it's NOT a problem, but anyway.....)
I'll keep you posted as I progress through yet another week!!......Today starts week #18 on my long and drawn out saga of a weight-loss program....=)
