When I first started trying to lose weight, nothing was happening. I went almost two months and the scale didnt budge hardly at all. I just kept at it though and all of a sudden within the last week and a half I dropped 15 pounds!!!! Wow! I have a long ways to go but this definitely encourages me. It also reassures me...for awhile there I thought something might be wrong with my body since i wasn't losing any unless I starved myself. I went ahead and increased my protein intake and that seemed to do the trick.
