I know, I know...the scale should NOT give the whole picture...

BUT, I am a slave to the scale!!! emoticon

May 15, I started a weight loss program called, Simply for Life. Basically, it's eating clean with not a lot of carbs. It costs 113$ a month to go get weighed in weekly and talk with a consultant for 15 minutes, if need be. Plus, the cost of buying healthy foods like, greek yogurt, lean meats and fruits and veggies.

I was very successful because of the amount of money I spend, I am very careful. I had lost 18 lbs within the first 3 months (very very good for me).

Then, I went on vacation for two weeks. I was careful, but also had treats and light beer.

I got back and had gained 2 pounds which is fine......

.....but since then, I can't get back on track!!!! emoticon

I follow the plan, I exercise, I drink my water...I JUST. DON'T. GET. IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last week I stayed the same and almost flipped!!!

I put the scale away since last Friday and decided to have a sneak peek this morning because I felt I was doing a good job.....I was up 1.6 pounds!!!!!!!!!

Where is the nearest window to throw that thing out you ask??????

I've never been this small my adult life. I feel great and people are noticing my weight loss...I feel awesome in my new clothes, etc. etc.

So, why am I so frustrated?

Because I still have 2 months with the plan (it's six months and you pay no matter what)!

My goal was was easy to achieve with losing 1 lbs a week....but now it seems too far and it's not about the goal weight anymore.

I do want to lose what I can in the next two months, but I just want to get OFF THIS PLATEAU!!!!!!!!

STay tuned!

  It probably too late to write on this one, but just want you to keep pushing. I understand and know what you mean but seriously you have to learn to enjoy what you have (the smallest you have ever been). And may be you lost all of the weight you had to with this program in the beginning and the best will come once you are finished with this one (just at the end).
So just keep going.

    Don't give up...never give up.

I hear ya on frustration-definitely been there. Keep on going.

Is there anything you're doing right now that is gonna change once you reach your goal weight? If not, than just keep thinking of this as your lifestyle.

It will come. I'm cheering you on!
