I've gone through this .. and then all of a sudden I get on the scale and 3 or 4 pounds is gone. I've decided that the ups-and-downs of a few pounds is 'normal' to the process, and I'm only weighing once a week and in the morning after my morning 'elimination'. But I am also measuring my body and checking out my sizes. That for me is really encouraging and keeps me motivated. As I work out, muscle mass (and weight) replaces the fat, so the scale may now show my progress. Just hand in there. And yes, increasing my fruits and veggies to 8 to 10 per day probably has also helped along with staying at the low end of the calorie range while eating 5 times a day. Life is good when I can see results. The pounds will come if I KEEP MOVING and eating healthy! We'll all make it if we just do what our bodies need and stick to our reaching our goals!
“Your whole body, from wingtip to wingtip," Jonathan would say, other times, "is nothing more than your thought itself, in a form you can see. Break the chains of your thought, and you break the chains of your body, too.”
― Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull
