I'm somewhat discouraged about my weight loss--or the lack thereof. I realized that it's the end of February and that was suppose to be when I met my goal of reaching 210. I had made my goal around Christmas. Since I seem to be losing weight slower, I thought that instead of 2 lbs. a week, that I'd shoot for a little over 1 lb per week. I figured that a good goal would be to lose 10 pounds in 2 months. That's doable, right??? Well, it didn't happen. I'm stuck at losing about 2 lbs. I know. I know. I tell myself all the things that I've told other people....look for non scale victories....don't get discouraged....at least it's 2 lbs (although it keeps fluctuating)....be thankful with what I have lost (forever!) My problem last night was that I was exhausted!. Infusion on Monday. No naps and a very active 2 years old ALL day on Tuesday and Wednesday. Right before I gave myself a pity party, it clicked.....that in itself is a victory (and a miracle). For those of you who know about MS....trust me, that's a miracle! I was still able to function. So, I went to bed very early. I got up early, but that's OK. I can make it even if Hannah doesn't take a nap again today. So, I guess, I'm just saying that if the scale is stuck for you, don't go eat every thing in sight. Just stick with it. Slowly but surely, we'll win! Turtles Rule!!!
