Keep going.

I went for about three months and the scale only shivered slightly.
Everyone is different.

You'll see results eventually.
The scale is not the only method of measurement - your health is way more important than a number only you (and your doctor) ever see

the scale should never be a big player..more like a jv player on the bench. If you are feeling great and are proud of the healthy life you have started and stuck to those are your quarterbacks and point guards of the healthy living game.


life happens. plateaus happen. keep going and use it to reflect on what you can change for the next week or next goal you set

Week 3 - not a plateau. You haven't started yet!

It took me six weeks of doing everything right to lose the first pound. Hang in there!

Hi! I'm trying to stay positive, but I'm working really hard to make great, healthy choices (staying my SparkPeople calorie/carb/protein/fat ranges everyday for a week!) and I'm just not seeing results. The scale hasn't budged. I know the scale shouldn't be a factor, but I'm just disappointed.

I'm trying to stay positive and focus on how proud I am for sticking with the program so well this week (this is week 3), but I'm starting to feel like it isn't working for me. Any advice to reignite some motivation and power through a plateau?
