eDiets Week 5 Day 1 - Can I get over the hump?

Submitted by Richat35 Healthyat85 on Mon, 04/24/2006 - 11:53am.

My progressive pattern of weight loss has slowed down a bit, but I am feeling and looking better.  Overall, I am stronger from working out consistently and I feel like I am more in balance when I am playing softball (for example, I play better defense).  My routine is doable, but I have noticed that I get a little tired and hungry sometimes throughout the day.  Soda, coffee, and tea are still off my personal plan and I have stuck to it 100% in that realm. 
My consistency with using the eDiets website to help me track things has been poor.  According to the plan, I should weigh in and check in every week, but I haven't officially "checked in" since the first week.  In general, I understand what the diet is suggesting and up to this point have not seen any reason to check in more often for more tips since I have a fairly general plan as it is.  However, I have been following many of the recipe's and I have my own Excel tracking sheet of my weight and workout progress.  This works great because I work in Excel alot as part of my job and keeps my diet in front of me.  I will go into more detail about this another day. 
To date I have been working out an average of 3.5 days per week despite travel and other considerations.  My weight goal this week is 172lbs, but I feel short last week.  This will be a challenge since I will be traveling for work half of the week.  That translates into plenty of food and drinks and not enough time to workout.  The key: Not to fall of the wagon totally!
