There are lots of reasons why we don't see the results we would like. A big one is that often we ESTIMATE rather than weigh and measure our foods - when I started using measuring cups, spoons and a kitchen scale - I discovered that a LOT of what I THOUGHT was a portion or a serving was really more like 2 or 3 - tracking it as ONE serving meant I LOOKED and LOOKED but couldn't understand WHY I was not losing. There are other reasons too and so I have come to accept that I will lose or gain when my BODY and not my MIND thinks it is time to change.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

SlimThick brought up a good point.
Also, there's the problem of not eating enough, as counter-intuitive as that might sound.

It's a balancing act

Stick with it, you will see results soon. I have been at my present weight for the last few months. I am simply eating too much. Track your food diligently and you will get the results that you seek. All the best.

I know it is frustrating! I have been making a lot more healthy changes since September and I have only lost 3.5 pounds-but I am ok with that. Just remember that not only are and will your habits affect your weight, you now are affecting how well your brain and body work. Congrats on making a lifestyle change! You can do it!!

I have been really focusing on Staying active and pushing myself, as well as watching my food and calorie intake. Spotty for about a month, more consistantly over the past 2 weeks. I am just finding it frustrating that the scale doesn't move. other than what seems to be the same pound. I had an analysis done, and I know there is plenty on me to lose- I would think that I would see at least a little decline on the scale.
