Default Finally!!!

after a stuck scale for 2 weeks and a grand total of 1.5 lb loss for the month to date, I was FINALLY down 2 more lbs this morning!

The one thing that kept me focused was the points challenge here - I told myself that whatever the scale said, as long as I was meeting my calorie, water and activity goals, I was making progress. And at last, the scale agreed with me!

I think trying to eat closer to the upper end of my calorie range helped. I don't eat back my activity calories but I have been burning enough to put me below 1200 net calories if I did count them, and I think my body wasn't happy about that, so going to the high part of my range at least some of the time seemed to help with that.

I'm glad that the scale finally decided to cooperate with all of your hard work!

Congratulations! I know it's hard to hang in there when the scale isn't moving, but it always pays off.

thanks everyone! The support around here, and knowing I wasn't the only one going through it really helped. (and I know my plateau wasn't even all that long but it was still tough, maybe in part because I'm somewhat at the beginning of getting started)

I think it's tough at any stage of the game. What a great attitude though and something for everyone to learn from. You stuck with it and had something besides the scale to judge your progress on. And it worked. Good job!
