Might Throw it Out the Window...

Monday, March 08, 2010

I'm hating my scale right now. I was sorely tempted to throw it out the window more than once this weekend!
I like to tell myself I'm losing inches instead, but no difference in my clothes so far... so that's not really holding up lately. I keep getting out the tape measure and then chickening out.
I can just keep telling myself I'm losing inches, but if I measure, and I'm not, what will I tell myself to keep me going?
I've been working hard and staying in calories, adding more exercise slowly into my schedule, working more carbs out of my diet, working more veggies and water in.... I don't know what else to do!!!
I'm being patient... but I haven't lost enough to hit a plateau, and havent' lost AT ALL in a whole month!!! It would be one thing if I were ordering pizza and not working out, but I've been really good.

I just REALLY want to be able to wear smaller pants and zip my raincoat when I go to DC at the end of this month. That's my goal! The scale can say whatever it wants, but I really want to get out of these 16's more than ANYTHING!!!!

    Stay with it! Even if you're not seeing measurable improvements yet, it has to catch up with you eventually! emoticon

    Sorry you are so frustrated! I know how you are feeling. I always got so angry that the scale didn't move until I gained. Then I was like, ok staying the same isn't so bad. I know it does not seem possible but if you continue to do everything right, how could you not lose? Keep it up. If in two weeks you feel like things are still not progressing you may want to change things up. Add some weights, do different cardio, something! Best,
