I've been at this for 2 weeks now and although I was down 5 lbs my first week, I didn't lose at all this week. It was very disappointing to say the least! I had a good week too! I ate the right foods, tracked everything and even started weighing and measuring when I could. So what gives??!

It's hard not to focus on the number on that scale. Why do we make that number so important?

I had to sit back and have a good talk with myself. In the 2 weeks I've been following the program I've seen a lot of improvements in my life. I've had energy that I haven't felt in over a year, my heartburn and acid issues went away almost instantly and I've lost most of my sweet cravings because I realized that my body was actually craving nutrients and now that I'm giving it lots of those I'm not craving the sweets.

It's still hard to not have lost any weight this week but I know in my heart that I've gained in so many other ways (and in a short time too!)

I'm still disappointed but I won't let it get me down because then I know I just devour comfort food like I did in the past. I've still got a lot to celebrate and that's what I'll focus on today! emoticon

    Just remember that when you exercise & do strength training - you will gain weight. This is becasue muscle weighs more than fat. But also remember that fat takes up more space than muscle.Muscle also helps you burn more calories. So concentrate on how your clothes are fitting you now. You are doing a great job - you can tell because of the way you feel.
