It was a loss no matter how small you think it is. Look at the positive side, it was a loss and not a gain. Be appreciate of all losses in weight no matter how small they are. All of the small losses add up to a bigger loss!
Have a great week!

There are too many reasons for the scale to stall - don't let it sabotage you. You lost an incredible 3 inches, and that is only measuring your hips and waist - there's no telling what you lost on the rest of your body.
Try eating more freggies - it seems to help me to lose the lbs.
You are doing great!

Losing a pound a week is great. Please don't get discouraged. Also please count those inches. Just think how losing inches affects the way your clothes fit. The way the shape of your body changes. It takes time to put on weight and it takes time to get it off. If you need a buddy I am here.

Your weight loss is healthy (particularly considering your current weight and age). Losing inches COUNTS - sometimes the tape measure moves more than scale. Remind yourself - this weight didn't come on overnight and will take some time to lose.

Healthy weight loss happens at 1-2 pounds per week, so you are doing just fine. Whenever I am discouraged about how much weight I've lost, I find something that weighs that amount and hold it for a bit - 5 lbs doesn't seem like much, but I'd get pretty tired carrying around a 5 lb sack of flour all the time.
