ok.... so i have been trying to stay off the scale lately becuase i'm not losing weight. i've been busting my butt and i usually only see like 1/2 a pound gone. that's what usually derails me..... lack of progress. but today... when i was putting on makeup... i was like "hmm... my face doesn't look as puffy today." weird. so i stepped on the scale... and 4 pounds down!!! in 5 days!!!! i'm sooooo excited! its like my body was hanging on to those pounds and just finally let them go! now i feel like i can really keep going. i know its not a huge loss... but i think its just what i needed to keep going in the right direction!
thanks for listening.... i just had to tell someone!
Looks like you have found the range on that new fat extermination weapon!
Sometimes it goes like that, though: you are on program but not much is changing and then WHAMMO! you lose a whole bunch of weight. And it sounds like you are even noticing changes in your form --- that is great! So whatever you have been doing,
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008
Starting weight 377, Weight in spring of 2010 198, Weight in August 2011? In the 240's.
Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!
Isn't that great??? I had a trainer for awhile and she said that it sometimes happens that way. Your body sometimes tries to hold on to that weight and you may hit a mini-plateau. But you can work through it and then finally your body gets to a new comfort zone and lets the weight go. (I don't know how medically sound that is, but I liked the thought)
