I did a no-no and decided to weigh myself today (I try to wait a week between weigh-ins) and I 'gained' a pound.
I know that it doesn't really mean anything in the long run, and that I shouldn't be aggravated, but I am. Meanwhile, my husband eats total junk. He has switched to diet sodas and stopped eating fast food, but he still eats only junk. He has lost 18lbs in the time that I have lost 4!! (Well, 3 right now.)
However, the major difference is that I have lost 2 to 3 pants sizes and he still looks the same. I made a life change and he is just 'on a diet.' I have lost fat while he may be losing water/muscle. So, I look at this picture and know that I am winning this war. My pile of 'too big' clothes to get rid of keeps getting bigger. And I am feeling fantastic! I have so much more energy and I don't get the high/low blood sugar attacks that I used to get. I'm going to start checking my blood sugar again tomorrow (I am uninsured and don't have the supplies, but a generous family member is helping me out), and I think my numbers will be dramatically improved.

    Keep on keeping on...you ARE doing fantastic!! I hope - and I think - you're numbers are going to improve, too. I've known others with Type 2 for whom weight loss was a real step toward improvement. All the best to you; you are so young to have to have this condition.

    You're doing great. Just stick in there. The feeling of having those clothes fall off is lots better than a number on the scale. We let that scale have to much power over us. Also if you're measuring yourself you should be able to see quite a bit of difference there.
