Truth be told, I've been avoiding the scale! emoticon
In the past I've been discouraged by weekly weigh ins, especially when I'm doing everything right and the numbers barely budge or even move in the wrong direction. I decided to face my fear this morning and jump on. I wasn't expecting much since I'm just getting restarted and have only made a few small changes over the last 2 weeks, but i wanted to have a better idea of where I'm really starting from. Well, imagine my surprise to be down 6.4 lbs!!! emoticon
I've been struggling to find motivation and I know the number on the scale isn't everything, but let's face it, we all like to see a big loss! So, for today at least, I'm a happy girl!

    Great job!!
    What other things are you measuring? waist, hips, arms, thighs, muscle to fat %? The way you feel is more important than the # on a box.

    Keep on doin' what you're doin'!!

    Congrats on your weight loss! Doing the happy dance- 6.4 lbs. is a lot! I agree about the scale, I'm beginning to think that it is better to keep making your best healthy choices on a daily basis and only check back to the scale every couple of weeks. If you are doing the right things, you don't need a number on the scale to affirm your success. The bonus is the "discovery" when you do weigh in that doing the right things, no matter how slowly will lead to success.
    Keep on keeping on! You are right on track! emoticon emoticon
