On a positive note, I got my copy of the New McDougall Cookbook in the mail today! I found it on a book swap site and was SO excited about it! So now I will have a fresh batch of tasty recipes to inspire me. And I'm also looking into buying some turbo jam DVDs off of craigslist. Also very exciting. I know a book or DVD is not a magic bullet that will fix everything. I know I'm still down overall this year, but I feel like I'm sliding in the wrong direction. I hope my new book, my new exercise DVDs, and lots of posting here on the site will give me momentum in the right direction to get me over this slump I seem to have fallen into.
cowgirrlup, I have to say that you are an inspiration to me. You bravely post your gains and losses and keep sticking with the plan, knowing that you are on the right track. For someone like me who is struggling, that is so encouraging and motivating. Thank you! And thank you to all of the other encouraging people here!

Am I adding more calories to my daily intake by doing this? I like to track all my calories and I've been leaving the entry at a regular cooked potato but I'm curious if that is incorrect.

1. Get up half an hour earlier each day, or skip a TV program to do a specific exercise.
2. Make exercise a part of each day.
3. Choose an activity that you have always enjoyed and do it at least four times per week

I hope you have a wonderful time!
