Our victories cannot just be measured by the numbers on the scale!

How do your clothes feel? What's your energy level like? These are also a measure of how we are progressing in our new lifestyles.

Don't be discouraged - and don't be impatient. We didn't gain the pounds overnight so we cannot expect to take them off that way!

I know its discouraging and I am in that position right now. However, even though the numbers on the scale aren't moving you could be losing inches. Just keep going the hard work will pay off in the end.

One thing that got me unstuck was switching up my workout routine and walking for a half hour every morning just to get my metabolism going.

Yes it sucks, but It's comforting to know that others go through the same problem, no?

Losing weight is difficult. Human biology is complicated. Don't beat yourself up.
Focus on something else. Do you feel stronger? Do you have more energy? Do your clothes fit better?

If you are doing what you probably should be doing then you should see some type of difference somewhere.

Try not to pay too much attention to the scale. I track my measurements, rather than weight. Although, I do weigh in once a month. Track your successes by how you're feeling overall. Such as, are you eating healthier, are you getting more exercise, do you have more energy, are you sleeping better. If you answer yes to any or all of those questions, you are making significant progress. The pounds will eventually drop, along with the inches, however, improving your overall health and lifestyle is what really counts. Hang in there and best of luck to you!

I feel full of energy and when I wear some clothes I'm easy to fit in. And I have feeling of attend the goal what I set on SP. Tha's what I stay strong when scale doesn't move. People says that if you take long time to lose weight (keep in plan) your weight won't come back easily. I try to keep in mind. So cheer up!!!!
