All I can say is my scale has not budged below 183 for 2 weeks. Right now it is sitting at 185. It has been 185 everyday this week, and I KNOW I am doing everything right, food wise.
BUT--also in this 2 weeks, I had to buy a smaller belt, I fit into a pair of jeans I hadn't fit into in years, and I THREW AWAY
a bra I paid $25.00 for 3 months ago because it kept, um - - um-- well, it just wouldn't, uh, ..Well, the boobage just wasn't there to fill it up any more and it looked realllllly stupid.
(I don't know about you guys, but $25 is a LOT for me to pay for a bra, but it felt really good to put it in the trash).
I am the biggest slave to the scale there is, but I don't let it break my heart anymore. You can't! The scale is only one little part of the big picture.
