Frustrating Scale

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

I decided at the beginning of the year to really increase my level of exercise and i've done a great job so far. I've even noticed a change in my body. My stomach is getting stronger, my arms have lost a little of the fat and my butt's even smaller. But my scale is basically hovering over the same amount. I know I am probably gaining some much needed muscle but its driving me nuts that I can't seem to break that barrier and see my weight go down any more. I started off great and lost about 15lbs. But now, nothing. Its really hard not to get discourage and say to heck with the exercise. Hopefully I'll see a change soon. I can't grow muscle forever, right? emoticon

    Have you tried joining the free trial by sparks coach. It is wonderful, encouraging, and motivating.

    Don't worry about the scales; you are making muscles. Sooner or later they will help you with the scales.

    Good luck. Please don't be discouraged. It will come if you stay determined and committed.
