Oh mine moved, just not the right direction....because I didn't stick to my plan last week.

Better luck for both of us this week!

Lots of great replies.

And, it's perfectly normal to have no scale change, even if other things are changing.
don't make it drive you crazy or quit. Think of it as training for maintenance, and working toward health.

As said - the scale isn't the only way to see your successes.

Thankfully, we don't carry around a scale, or a big number on our forehead that flashes and lets everyone know how much we weigh; our measurements; our clothing size (or whatever other number obsession we have). Those are private - and that's a good thing.

There are other ways to measure your process other than just weight loss.

How is your energy level?
Did you loss any inches in any area?
Does your clothes feel looser in any area?
Are you able to do more of a particular exercise than last time?
How do you feel about your self?

This is a difficult journey, and not all process is measured in pounds. This is actually my second time, and sometimes I would go 2 or more weeks without seeing any weight loss and I know it can be frustrating but then I started looking at it another way, I was seeing, process in other areas. It made the journey worth it and even though I wasn't seeing the results on the scale like I wanted, I was seeing the results in myself.

Be positive and remember results show in more than one way.

It's normal to have weeks where you don't lose or even gain. It likely has nothing to do with you not doing all the right things.

Weight can fluctuate as well, that's why the scale isn't the most accurate way of measuring. Sometimes my weight hasn't moved for the week but than I'll have other weeks where I wake up one morning and I've dropped 3 lbs and maintain that new weight.

No loss, no gain.

Not sure how I feel about this.
I worked hard this week and am surprised to not have lost any weight.
I do feel much more toned though and even hubby commented on my body changing shape.

Are there any tools/ articles on SP about not losing/ not gaining?
