Week 17.1 & 17.2: In which I am STILL not losing weight.

Hello, hello!  I should have posted this yesterday, but yesterday looked like this:
I know, I know, excuses… Today is the big exciting Doug recital day (eeks!) & I’m taking a few minutes out of my busy cake-making schedule to update the blog.  Don’t you feel loved? 🙂
Current Weight: 140 lbs
At Last Weigh-in: 139.6 lbs
Starting Weight: 144 lbs
Weight Loss to Date:  4 lbs

This weight loss thing is NOT going so hot.  Ideally, even at a moderate pace I should be able to knock off 4lbs a month and be down to my goal weight by Christmas at the latest… even with all of the evil holiday food around.  Unfortunately, I seem to be pretty solidly stuck at the 140 mark, or at least I have been for the last month or so.  I’ve been having a hard time tracking my calorie consumption recently, and even though I’m aware that I need to be eating half of what Doug eats, it is still difficult to limit myself, especially when I feel hungry!  I’ve also had a hard time getting myself to exercise regularly.  I have to do my workouts in my apartment, which I can manage… but I really need to get myself doing cardio again regularly and I live on the second floor, which limits my indoor cardio hours.  Oh, and the convenient nearby bike path?  Closed for construction again.  
Can anyone give me a push here?  How do you stay motivated?  Are any of you on MyFitnessPal to poke me into tracking my calories?  Let me know in the comments… :/

OK.  Must be getting back to my cake-ly duties!  Not to mention nail painting and makeup-doing and hair-arranging… eep!
