It can definitely get frustrating (this is a long process), but try to NOT let things be dominated by the scale. We often fluctuate as much as 5-6 pounds in weight for a lot of reasons. When I eat out, if I weigh the next morning, I'm ALWAYS up 4-5 pounds because of the high salt content when you eat out. Then a few days later, it's gone.
I try to focus on two things: (1) other things that tell me I'm doing better. Because this is not a diet for me, but a lifestyle change; something I can do for the rest of the my life. So maybe my clothes are feeling less tight, or I have more energy, or I just know that I've been eating better than I used to ... take whatever you can find and turn it into a positive; and (2) that my unhealthy habits and weight didn't happen overnight, so this will not either (I know, you've heard this already).
Baby steps and lots of patience. Keep up the good work!!!
