Just like a Turtle!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Slow but steady. Well, very slow but steady. The scale finally inched down another pound. Who knew it could be so slow, but I'm guessing my age isn't helping. Needless to say, I'm happy the scale is inching down and not up. And it's the lowest it's been in years. This woman is NOT complaining!

did you know there is a spark team on here called Tortoise's Unite. I'm on it too. It used to be called the slowest loser. That is me too. I lose weight very slowly. glad your seeing results. Haven't spoken to you in a while. Hope you are well!

    lol Yes! Let's be glad that the scale is going DOWN!!! I found out long ago that the scale isn't always the best measurement of progress. Sometimes we have to look at other things. How does your body feel? How do clothes fit? Is your energy level up? These things will inspire us when the scale decides to be naughty! lol Congrats on your weight loss!

    moving slowly in a positive direction can lead to real changes instead of quick fixes where you end up losing a lot but then gaining all back

    Good for you for sticking with it! The scale is moving VERY slowly for me, too. Hormones and age are a hard thing to overcome, but as I read people's success stories, they make me realize it IS possible. I'm just happy that the scale is moving down (generally) instead of up - that's the way it was headed before I started tracking again. The scale seems to have no problem moving UP fast - ha.
