The scale is still stuck. To give myself credit, it did budge 0.2 pounds down, but OH MY GOD WHY IS THIS TAKING SO LONG? I am doing the right things. I am eating right. I am exercising. I am drinking sh*t tons of water. I'm still not back where I was before my work trip 10 days ago. I do think there's a hormonal factor at work right now, but good lord this is frustrating.

I know I have to just keep plugging along. That it will happen. I've all but given up hope of reaching my 10-pound goal by my vacation at the end of June, but I can at least get to my mini goal by then, which is to be the smallest I've ever been as a fully grown human.

Now that my 10-mile race is done, I have decided to move on to hiking. The weather is warming up and I really don't want to run much these days. I got an annual pass to Great Falls and did my first hike yesterday. It was a beautiful day for it and I loved it. I found a new trail that's flatter and more open, and less crowded because it's away from the river, and it'll be great to take the dog out there. Then when it's just me I'll tackle the river trail which is much harder.

I still want to do the Grouse Grind on my vacation in Vancouver this summer so I need to do more hiking/hills/etc. to prepare.

I'm super frustrated with the scale right now but I'm still feeling motivated. I'm trying to remind myself (over and over and over and over and over and over again) that I'm in this for the long haul.

    Keep making healthy choices and make sure you are eating enough. As counter intuitive as it sounds... weight loss can stall with under eating.

    I understand what you feel. Scales are wacky sometimes! I leave you with this quote and hope it brightens your day. Reading this quote helps me whenever the scale isn't cooperating:

    "You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

    Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

    It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”

    Just remember everyone hits that certain weight where it seems like the only way to get rid of it is with a stick of dynamite, lol. My goodness it sounds like you are doing an amazing job, keep it up and good luck.
