It's not that hard anymore for me. I just bring out old pics of me weighing in at 545 lbs and look where I'm at now, 297 and remember how it FELT to be such a huge person. That's how it's easy for me to get back on track again !
Do yourselves a favor keep a photo diary along with your written journals this will really help you maybe even remind you to jump back on your own bandwagon so that each time you fall off track you can get right back on again !
I get frustrated when I watch the scales stand still...so I look at the whole picture. In cold weather, it's not as hard to bundle up. My clothes are loose enough now to put on layers.....THAT's a positive feeling!!!! What the scales don't show is size loss.
Paying too much attention to only one aspect of your SP program can provide skewed information. Looking at the whole picture...I would rather weigh a ton and look like I weighed an ounce than the other way around.
