Ok so I will recant my statement from a few days ago...the scale is only a motivational tool as long as it says what you expect. If it consistently does not show positive change over the course of a few days, then it becomes a problem. I don't quite know what is going on at the moment, but that darn scale just won't go down this week and nothing on my part has changed, so I know it is ok. My trainer says that at some points your weight-loss can slow down for a week or so while you build muscle and although you don't see it in the scale this time...the weight will still come off. I can work with I just have to keep motivated and have positive thoughts about this and I will make it through. This has always been a hinging point for me on any weight-loss attempt. When the scale stops moving I give up! Simple as that. But I will NOT let my body conquer me this time!

I have been struggling with this all week. It's easy to stay motivated and in control when you see the awesome results I did in the first few weeks. But when things slow down, that's when the real test begins. And that's when you listen to your skinny self that's hidden under all of that fat saying, "Come on juicy booty! We've GOT this!" ...alright skinny girl...

Every time I get a vacation, the week before it I get very edgy and a little moody. I haven't had a good vacation since after Christmas last year and I usually have a good couple of weeks in the summer. But not this year, we spent it in the hospital with my dad. My job can be very stressful, much more than most people think. So vacation time is critical!

Thanks for reading friends!

  1. Oh my goodness girl. I feel like every time I read your post that you are talking straight to me. I'm only on week two and the scale is being very mean these past few days. I just weighed myself again before reading this. I'm not doing anything different calorie or exercise wise (other than not getting sick) so it is kinda putting me on edge. Thanks for sharing. It definitely helps! It seems like even though we are weeks apart in our journeys that we struggle with the same things... I guess my biggest thing is just wanting results NOW. I always want the quick fix... I know that isn't the way it works so I'll just keep with this. Thanks for sharing! Our "juicy booties" will need a grand photo shoot when we reach goal weight!
