So, I have been bothered by the scale not moving and not always seeing results on the measuring tape. Guess what. There are other ways of telling things are happening.
Being able to do more in your workout. It amazes me how quickly I notice a difference as I'm doing these DVD work outs. Something I couldn't do last time is do-able this time, or I struggled last time and this time it's easier.
Noticing that when I get out of the shower, the towel wraps further around me body. Yeah, that feels nice. :)
While I was doing crunches today, I noticed my thighs look slimmer. Now, I also had a change with the measuring tape, but that was pretty darn nice to see too. :)
Even though I didn't see a difference for a while when measuring my hips, at the same time, my jeans were fitting better. Not sure how that works, but I'll take it! That loss finally showed up last time I took measurements.
So, my point, is to not get hung up on the scale (which we hear all the time), or even the tape measure. Pay attention to how your clothes fit, how you feel while you work out, and even how you feel going about your day to day things. I bet there is a difference somewhere. :)

    I can now comfortably wear the ski pants my sister gave me about a year ago (I think). They were much too tight for comfort then!

    You are right about that. I celebrated a NSV this weekend. I was in my closet looking for work clothes and pulled out some blouses I haven't been able to wear in a year or more. I tried them on and they fit! WooHoo!

    I am really starting to feel the difference in the clothes I am wearing everyday - they are much looser on me than they were four months ago (when I first started back to work). I have lost 22 pounds in this span of time and my clothes tell the tale!

    Keep working hard and you will celebrate your own NSVs!
