Teresa, if you're a results-oriented person, find OTHER ways to measure your progress. How many crunches can you do? Push-ups? Pull-ups? Start strength training and see how many you can do in a month, even six months! Get a seamstresses' tape measure and measure your bust, waist, hips, and thighs. Re-check them periodically (preferably NOT at that time of the month!). See how far you can walk, jog, run, swim or bike, and compare it to a few months down the road. Keep a log of your daily energy, mood (and if applicable, pain) levels, on a scale of 1-10, watch it improve!
Sometimes the scale won't budge. I've been following my nutrition plan and running like crazy and the scale hasn't moved. Heck, my pants barely fit any differently, I think I'm building up so much muscle that it's replacing an equal volume of the fat I'm losing...but lemme tell ya, my booty sure looks less lumpy in the mirror, and for me, that's MAJOR plus!
