This is a milestone day... 10,000 steps in BY NOON! Yahoo~ why is it that with ALL of this exercise and eating soooo well.... the scale is not moving.... sigh... I NEED to see movement in the downward direction on this scale to keep me motivated. Plain and simple!! What am I doing WRONG?!

    Well for one maybe weigh yourself once a week at the same time of day each time rather than daily...I found that works better for me maybe that will work for you too and don't peak till then even though its tempting. Also taking your measurements really helps because you may not have lost weight but you may have lost inches. You may find that you think you lost weight because it feels like it and it looks like it but then you jump on the scale and nothing...then its probably inches if you notice your clothing is looser. Or maybe you reached a plateau and you have to workout harder that could be another reason...if your not sweating your not burning as much calories. Good luck!

    I was thrilled when I stopped gaining weight. That was a major milestone. Next I saw my weight trending downward, not quickly just going in the right direction. When you find the answer to your question, please let me know. Have a great week.Let's kick that scale next weigh in.

    Thanks, Barb! If my scale isn't broken now... I may break it soon!! Some days I feel like throwing it against the wall, haha! I think we all go through that. I am going back to my boring routine of eating the same things every day to see if that helps to boost something. I have found that I LOVE Ezekiel bread in the morning with Simply Jiff peanut butter... boring... but it really keeps me full. The texture of the Ezekiel bread makes me feel like I am eating 4 pieces of toast instead of 2... bread is my kryptonite!! Lunch is tough because I am often "on the fly" and I skip it a lot and then I am STARVING later on and eat like crazy for dinner and before bed... not a good plan! I will also be faithful with my water this week... especially with that Easter ham coming up... salt, salt, salt! You know... if we have to go through all of this "gunk"... I am glad that we have each other! The support of a team is so healing. You are doing GREAT!! Keep up the good work! Any tips that have really helped you??
Hugs to you!!

    You may not being doing anything wrong, sometimes it just takes a couple days to show a difference on the scale. Hang in there! It will be moving in no time! I get obsessed with the scale so I only get on it twice a week. Keep up the good work, wait a couple days and then get back on the scale. Or...maybe yours is broken and you need a new one!
