My weight loss occurs about as quick as glacial movement

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Well, it's been 10 days and finally another pound dropped off. I'm sure if I'd stick down near the 1200 cal/day range, it'd be quicker, but I'm almost always at the upper limit. If I had lost 25 lbs already, I could understand taking 10 days to lose a pound but it's frustrating when I'm just starting out. On the positive side, I'm logging the food and being accountable.

    Slow and steady wins the race! Plus it's easier to keep the weight off if you lose it slower. That being said, it is irritating to step on the scale and not see a loss every day! After all, we're working at it.

    I am of the opinion that it stays off better when it is lost slowly, and dietary changes one can live with. Plans which allow the weight to drop so quickly don't usually work over time.

    Keep up the good work :) Seriously- a pound lost is a big step! It is way better then a pound gained, for sure!

    When I find I reach a plateau I have a hard time keeping motivated so maybe check your other measurements, especially if you have been working out. The scale is only a tiny picture of your overall progress.

    In Feb I have lost ONE pound. So I feel your pain. I just emailed sparkcoach and asked for some advice. According to my calories in vs. out I should have lost atleast 5 pounds! Am am typically a slow loser too emoticon

    It is frustrating, but some people just lose slower. The main thing is that you have lost, not how long it took.
