Never, never, never set a goal to lose a certain amount of weight by a certain date. You have done fantastic yet you moarn not meeting your goal. The scale is the lest reliable predictor of success. Set goals to make permanent lifestyle changes and measure your progress by them. That is what helps you keep the weight off when you are on maintenance.
Now celebrate your loss - maybe a pedicure. You are a success.

Hey, 1.5 lbs. is a good loss! Congratulations - I'm sure you'll meet your goal by next week - and there ain't no shame in getting there a little later than you planned, especially if you were dealing with a plateau.
I'm hoping for a 1 lb. loss by next Friday. That will put me half way to goal. I swear, if the scale registers a gain next week, I'm going to do to it what the guys in Office Space did to the fax machine.
