Weight Loss Support - why am i so in denial about my weight loss?

Hey guys. I lost like 9 pounds and a few days ago lost another 2. But why can't I believe my scales? All the scales I've tried say the same thing. Why is it so hard to believe that all this hard work paid off? I want to be proud of myself D:

I think it may be normal... I went through the same thing for about the first 20 lbs. At first I wondered if my scale was going crazy. Lol.

Congrats on your loss.

I can totally relate. I have a hard time celebrating losses sometimes unless it's consistent for a long time.

It feels like every pound loss I'm looking at the next pound I need to work on instead of reveling in the present and celebrating my progress.

Congratulations on your progress so far!

i have the same problem, i think that, oh the scale is going down, it doesn't mean i'm actually losing weight though. what?! of course it does! or else it wouldn't go down!

i think it happens to everybody. keep it up!
