First, you have to stop measuring yourself by how much you weigh. You see yourself the same as you have always seen yourself. It is called "residual self image" and it can sabotage you if you let it. For example, while I was losing weight, I kept checking the scale and it never changed more than a pound or two a week. I didn't realize I was losing the weight until I noticed my pants fit looser than they used to. When I started, I weighed 165 lbs. and wore a size 14. Now I weigh 155 lbs. but I wear a size 6-8. You must remember that as you exercise the fat away, you are making you body stronger and muscle weighs more than fat. So measure yourself in inches, not by pounds. # of Sit-ups = as many as you want inside 20 minutes, three days a week. Or every morning as soon as you wake up, before you go to the bathroom, before you take a shower, do 3 reps of 20, one rep for each set of ab muscles. remember you have your middle abs, plus one set on each side. Doing this will also help you start your day with more energy.
