No matter what the scale says, it doesn't change how you feel or how you look. In fact, it means very little in the grand scheme of things. Expect nothing and any loss will be a pleasant surprise and cause for celebration.
The number on the scale is dependent upon many factors besides fat loss. It does not necessarily reflect the amount of effort you put in. If you feel good and your fitness is improving and your clothes are loose- don't let the scale change your attitude or get you down.

Sometimes the scale or the mirror don't cooperate with our preconceived expectations of where our hard work with exercise and food intake should have us - for any given time period. ( some call these plateaus) When this happens to me I focus on making sure I am giving my body what it needs..8 hours rest, 8 glasses water daily. regular exercise, and plenty of fruits and veggies. I keep in mind that weightloss is a symptom of healthy living and I am NOT on a diet!
All you need is the right frame of mind and persistence. Remember Always! You are trying to be healthy and any step no matter how small contributes to this. This is a lifestyle and need to be something you can LIVE WITH for the rest of your life.
