I haven't had much of a change on the scale in about a month. And even when changed are occurring- I have such hormonal weight shifts that it's almost impossibly hard for me to figure out if I'm losing weight or not. I've been battling with the feelings that you've been having for quite sometime.
Without the scale- how do I measure success? That's what it boils down for me. Besides- I would like to find another measure of success.
For me- success is measured by wellness.
You did not overeat this week? SUCCESS.
You didn't give up? SUCCESS.
For me- success looks a bit like this:
You didn't eat processed foods this week? SUCCESS!
You only ate when you were hungry?! SUCCESS!
You made time to move your body this week? SUCCESS!
For me, the scale is a terrible measure of success.
(I think this picture will work....)
That is February, March and May. From March to May...I only lost about 10 pounds. But if that is what 10 pounds looks like? I'll take it!
The scale is flawed. Your weight fluctuates with hormones, water, salt, food, digestion. (And water is heavy!! 1 cup of 8 ounces of water....8 OUNCES...weighs half a pound! Totally ridiculous.)
(I like this idea....I don't necessarily think you need to give up anything to lose weight (Okay...fine...I think most people need to give up processed foods and their desire to sit out the sofa all day....but you get the jist.)
