I weighed in this morning - almost picked up the scale and opened the back door to see how far I could toss the #!$% thing.
Couldn't believe it. Last week I was only down 1/2 a pound so made sure this week I was good - stayed well within calorie range and exercised - What happens - the damn needle went up a 1/2 pound - the same 1/2 pound I was so annoyed with only losing last week.
So I have only lost 3 lbs in total over 3 weeks. I thought I was doing so well and now this brick wall is in the way of my going any further. For a moment I thought this isn't worth the aggravation - face it - you can't lose weight. But then I got over it - decided I had to look at the good news in all of this. In those same 3 weeks I lost 1.5 inches off of my waist and almost an inch off of my hips.
Well, time to start another week, with more determination than ever. I will keep repeating my mantra to myself everytime I'm feeling like this - I can do this - I will do this!
