Great post, with all these weight loss shows lately that show people losing completely unrealistic amounts of weight, it's important to remind everyone that that's not real. Most of us are lucky to lose .5 - 1 lb a week and there will be weeks with no loss and sometimes gain (especially around TOM and after strenuous exercise). This isn't a race people it's a marathon, and it's one we'll be running forever, even into maintenance.

It's so hard to watch people get so frustrated when the scale slows down, I've been there I know how hard it is, but just keep at it, don't give up, I promise you will reach your goals in time, but only if you persist.
