scale woe!

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I'm having a frustrating time. I am doing everything right and the scale isn't budging at all. I've lost 6 lbs, but that's it. I'm exercising and weight training and tracking all my food. I'm eating whole wheat and veggies and fruit and protein and drinking water, but that scale isn't giving me any joy at all. Its upsetting and depressing. It is hard to stay motivated when nothing seems to be happening. I am just going to have to find some way to step up the exercise I guess. :(

On the good news I think I found a dress for a wedding I am going to at the end of May for not too much money at Kohls. Here is the dress.

They didn't have this print so I am ordering it online but this is what it will look like on me.

Not too bad, right???

    Cute Dress! Take your measurements and compare those as well as the scale, I find losing inches just as motivating as the numbers on the scale!

    Cute dress! I like the pattern you ordered a lot better than the one in the store, too. I share your frustration with the scale, especially when you're working so hard. Keep at it!

    Peachy78 ~ don't let the numbers get you down (if the weight isn't moving like you want it to...) the fact that you're exercising will ultimately be helping your body change (build muscle, tone etc). I found that last summer I learned the hard way that I needed to eat properly (healthy foods etc) but also enough to keep the balance of losing weight and the amount of exercise I was doing...(not enough and I stopped losing body wanted to hang onto every calorie I was giving it!) It actually took a couple of good friends who are extremely fit explain this "fine balance" to me...and you know something? I only increased my calories by a little bit and suddenly I started losing weight again.
What ever you do...keep moving towards a healthy lifestyle!! emoticon
