i'm stuck!

ugh! i'm trying not to be a slave to the scale, but i was so disappointed when i weighed in this morning. it hasn't budged since last week!!

i've been so enthusiastic about my workouts, congratulating myself for literally walking through the wind and rain and cold (well, as cold as it gets here). i was totally psyched to see my measurements are all smaller than this time last year. so, why am i still so focused on the darn scale?!?

last monday, i could just feel that i had lost weight. you know that feeling? all day yesterday, and even this morning, i've been stressed because i didn't have that feeling. and for good reason. the scale didn't budge!

(i should be focusing on the fact that it didn't budge upwards, huh?)

it's too early in the game for a plateau, i'm sure. i need to pat myself on the back for getting rid of 8 pounds since we came home from vacation (or, as we lovingly refer to it, "eating our way through Disney!")

looks like it's going to be a cold, wet walk tonight! and i'm actually looking forward to it...

This is sooooo normal!! Keep track of you wieghtloss cyle...It is different for everyone. Most people so not loose the same each week. I noticed that I would have a good lose one week and then the next week would be slow, but then the next week would be good. So over time I started to know what to expect. It really can be hard not to let the sale determine our moods!!! But if you are losing inches that's spectacular, that is what we want, to LOOK better!!! Keep up the good work!!

The important thing is that you're actually exercising. That's good for you no matter what the scale says.
