I've been moving, but the scale won't budge!

Friday, February 22, 2013

For a while now, like about 2 months, i've been eating fewer calories, drinking more water and moving more, but the scale just won't move. Well, sometimes it does move just not in the direction that I hope it would. It's frustrating, annoying and discouraging, but I finally have come to the conclusion that it's okay. I'm doing what feels right and good for me and my body. I even realize that I will be doing this for the rest of my life! Exercising and eating better. And that is okay too, because I feel better, look better and am happier. Ultimately I know that I will win this battle too and the scale will move in my favor, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday, and someday soon, cause I'm not giving up this time. I've come too far and invested too much to go back to how I was. It's just not worth it.
So even though the scale won't play nice and tell me what I want it to, I'm going to push a little harder, sweat a little longer, drink a little more water, eat some more veggies and keep telling myself (and listening) I Can do this, I Will do this, I Am worth it and there is no need to hurry, just BE Patient, girl!
I'm almost positive that some new numbers are just around the corner, just gotta find the right corner to turn down, so off I go in search of, sounds like an adventure to me. Wish me luck!

    Atta girl! I am in the same boat. I threw my scale under my bed. Decided weighing myself every week is not working. Every month, maybe ever few weeks I will.
    You're doing everything right! Keep on keeping on! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great attitude! Steviebee569 has some great questions to ponder; sometimes we eat too little while we are exercising and our bodies think "survival mode"...it's worth a try!

    Are you eating enough calories? Also, are you tracking your activity? Maybe you're not eating enough, especially if you're moving more. Why not set a mini-challenge for yourself to track your activity and eating and see if you're eating enough compared to your activity?
