Default Scale Not Moving

My scale isn't moving it bounces dutifully between 207 and 205. After a week of cleaning eating, I let the weekend be the weekend and didn't weigh and measure every portion. Yesterday I wanted junk and though I didn't binge or any really destructive behavior I had about 300 extra calories (to make my goals I have to be -600 cal a day).

Weight loss is a journey for me and losing slowly and learning maintenance along the way is the best thing for me. The barrier for the next push though is emotional (I think I am mourning my divorce, my son I gave up's 20th birthday, relationship pressures, trying to find the happy where I am living when I haven't been in the ocean all summer ), but I am still accountable for my actions.

My goals for the rest of the week are:
Eat my food plan
Follow my bike training schedule exactly
Walk 9 mi

And on the positive side. My NSV has been with my bike. When I first started on the bike I remember that first 20+ min ride being rough and making me very sore, doing a 3 mi loop was hard (in 4th and 5th gear!). Last night I went on a 9+ mi ride in 45 min, most of it in 7th gear. I am seeing my improvements and I am enjoying myself.

Now I have said it out loud, may it doesn't own me any more. Onederland here I come!

That's a lot of emotional stress to deal with. Good for you for having a plan and moving forward anyway! I just came off a one month plateau, so I understand 'being stuck'. Just keep at it and you'll be in onederland before you know it.

That is a lot of stuff going on at once. One step at at time and sounds like you have those steps laid out for this week. Hang in and just try and remember that food won't fix any of it (although it always feels like it will).

You WILL feel better in the long run -- and learn strategies for maintenance -- if you can push through this emotional time.

A wise woman once told me that we will stumble along the way, but we will get to where we need to be.

It's really good to see you being kind and gentle with yourself.

Just hang in there and do the best you can. The scales WILL shift -- they HAVE to...

That would be a full plate for anyone, nevermind in the midst of weight loss. Your strength and perseverence is inspiring. It is a constant process, and as long as we persist we are winning in one form or another.

I have struggled this week. My food is on track and even eating out last night I don't consider it a disaster. The scale this morning was 205 exactly, so no great progress either :P I have been PMSing and my emotions are trying to overrule my good sense and goal planning. I am responsible for my actions and have let the emotions come as they will. I cried almost all the way into work, went into the bathroom and freshened and since I didn't eat it I feel like I won.

I went biking on Monday night. Since then the weather has been a nightmare for biking or walking. Has no one told this state that its July and suppose to be miserably hot and sunshiny? The weekend should clear and I have a 2 hour bike ride planned for Saturday. Tonight I hope to get on the bike or walk, either would make me happy.

My official weigh-in is Monday. Here is to some hopeful scale progress and at least I am not gaining

I just want to say Hugs. You have a lot of emotions plus TOM to deal with. The scale will move. Work hard at it. If one thing doesn't work, try another. Up your calories, then drop, do more exercise...you will get there.

Just keep going, you are doing it. I'm taking it slow and easy too, so I know it's going to stay off and I can make this work for me for the rest of my life. There are good days and bad but it's all a learning curve! You can do it!
