Ever sit at the same weight for a couple weeks and it just feels like forever? I've been sitting at 190-191 since around the 6th, and although that really wasn't -that- long ago, it feels like I've been sitting at this weight for so long! I'm ready to be out of the 190s like I don't know what. I know I haven't been 100% perfect this month, but I know I've still been eating at a deficit so weight loss should be happening. But nope, it's just stuck here and now I'm heading for the week-before-my-period bloat and I feel like I won't be anywhere NEAR what I wanted to be by the end of the month. Or maybe I will, I tend to have a "woosh" right after my period.

And I've noticed that -- my weight comes off in chunks. But sometimes I really wish it wouldn't do that! I'd rather have a steady 1-2lbs loss a week then to randomly lose it all at the end of the month cause then I feel like I'm actually accomplishing something, lol.

Goal needs to hurry up and get here; I'm tired of weight-loss mode. The end.

You're singing my song, Lauren, only I am to old to have periods. You sort of loose interest when nothing happens for weeks. We just have to hang in there.

I lose in whooshes too. I have to constantly remind myself to be good ALWAYS as it's not like I'm only losing during a "whoosh", but it's SOOOO much easier to stay good when you see the scale cooperating.

I've gotten used to it, but that doesn't mean I like my (as I call it), my monthly stall-out, which for me, is almost 3 weeks long every month!!!
