I'm new to the board and this group but wanted to reply. I know 1/2 a pound can be frustrating when you want to see REAL movement on that scale!! There were times in the past I stepped on expecting a loss and found a gain instead.
I'm glad you're not giving up- it's only the first week, and you may see even better progress your second week as your metabolism wakes up.
Thanks you guys for the kind words! I know it is a day by day process, but I just felt like I had done so well. I'm not going to give up though!
Don't despair and keep up the good work! I agree with everything Storm says. Good things come to those who wait. I have found that the less I rely on the scale the better I feel. Just like you noticed that you were buying bigger pants, you will notice when those pants start to feel a little looser. I too am trying to loose baby fat from a 10 year old so I really understand.

What kind of exercise are you doing?
Also remember that your weight will fluctuate +- 2 lbs throughout the day. Make sure you are weighing yourself at the same time. Usually the best time is first thing in the morning before eating. Also try to wear the same clothing when you weigh yourself to be consistent.
Finally remember that fast weight loss is sometimes not healthy. 2 lbs a week is a pretty good goal for many people.
Stick to it and keep the faith!

Not sure if I introduced myself or not. I moved to Fort Collins about a year and a half ago. I've got a 10 yr old son and have been trying to lose weight ever since I gave birth to him.
So last week I decided to start being good again. I got back on SparkPeople, ate really well, even exercised. And I lost a 1/2 a pound, what the heck!!??
