Slow and steady

Wins the race they say, and I have to make it my personal mantra.
I want to loose 60 lbs by August, and at this rate, I'll need well over a year.
I've worked my butt off all week, had two bad eating days and only lost 1 measly pound.
Yes, yes, I'm building muscle. But why am I so hung up on the scale? I had the husband hide it and he only brings it out on Sundays. So, I was *hoping* to see at least a 2lb loss, instead I see a 1 lbs loss (and that was AFTER getting on and off about 8 times to get the lowest reading, if I took the first reading, I am the same as last week).
I take measurements, and try to concentrate on that. I also like the way my undies, bras and other clothing is getting looser, yet I still go *but but but...the scale said.....*
I just want to know if, one week, when all this muscle is built, and I can run on the treadmill for a solid 30 minutes will the weight start coming off faster??? Or will I be stuck with a half a lb here and a pound there. If so, I'll scream.
