Well, more like SAME line. Same line on the scale, that is. I stayed exactly the same this week. Iím exercising my super-power- positive-mind-strength and trying not to let it bother me. (Gee, I wonder what that super-hero outfit would look like!) Iím reasoning with myself that, well, unfortunately women have to deal with one week a month where the scale should just be thrown out the window and completely disregardedÖand that I likely DID have a small loss, since Iíve maintained this week. Thatís my story and Iím sticking to it, because I have done everything right this week.

Thing is, now Iím wishing this next week away because I want to see positive results next Saturday! Iím now more determined to make it a good week, do better with my water intake, and find a new way to exercise when itís -14, with the wind-chill factor, and I donít want to deal with that during a run.

SoÖhereís to a new week and looking forward to some forward progress on the scale next Sat.

Ready, setÖGO!

    I am a Massachusetts sparkler and a former teacher! Don't worry about the flat lining. Try pushing some extra water or a while. Anni

    I'm sure that all your hard work just has your body recalculating - changing fat to muscle and that's why you didn't see a change on the scale. emoticon

    Yay! Maintenance! Hey, it's always better than gaining! I do understand the feelings about the no loss weeks, it's like your favorite team earning a tie with their bitter rival. It's like all of the preparation for the big game has gone to waste. But, when you think about it, it's still better than losing to that rival!!

    Keep going! You might want to get a tape measure to see if other changes have occurred, or if your clothing fits differently. Many times on this journey, scale wouldn't move, but things were moving around positively. emoticon

    Do not be discouraged with a flat line on the scale - the scale is NOT the only place to look for a victory.

For instance I started out at 208.2 on the 2nd and now I am up to 210.4 BUT I am ice skating (I use to teach) at least 180 minutes a week so there is my explaination for the gain - hopefully it will disappear eventually muscle weights MORE than fat

BUT I took a good long look at my hips and legs and there is NOT an ounce of fat near my hip and upper thigh - THAT IS A NON SCALE VICTORY for sure better yet I can see my shape is different

I encourage you to keep up your healthy lifestyle - I loved what my nutritionist told me in the last 2 years I have put 2 family members on hospice and bury them, help my Dad who was in the hospital twice then my sweet husband had a minor heart attack after all that I DID NOT GAIN A POUND but managed to drop 4 pounds over the two years - it may not seem like a lot BUT I have maintained my weight under the toughest stress

SO YOU CAN DO THIS - Keep up the Good Work!!!

If I can be of any encouragement PLEASE do not hesitate to stop by my spark page or email me!

  Hang in there! I've been flat lined for a couple of weeks. Eating the right stuff, exercising moderately, being positive and seeing no results on the scale. On the flip side my food choices are healthier, I have more energy, and I'm generally more positive. It's like they say...don't let the numbers on the scale determine your level of success!!
