Okay, so I've been back on the workout wagon for a good two or three weeks and I've made it a point to work out 3 or 4 days a week and I've been really good with my nutrition tracker as far as staying within all my ranges. The scale is not moving! The good thing is I know I'm a little bit smaller. I feel a difference in my body size and the way I feel as far as energy and all. {{{sigh}}} I know, I know, the scale is not the only measure of progress and I shouldn't let it determine my mood, but it still frustrates me to no end. Well, I'm gonna keep on doing what I'm doing and trust that I'll get where I'm going by doing what I know needs to be done.

    I live by the scale. I weigh myself at least 5 times a day. I know I shouldn't.. but I can keep myself in check that way. I've also learned that I should bust out the measuring tape... The weeks I don't lose weight.. I lose inches. Keep up your good work though! Just exersicing shows you have dedication!

    I'm researching a book on weight loss and the optimal rate of loss is 1/2 per week. lose more than that and you lose muscle and losing muscle makes it much less likely to keep the weight off.

    So maybe you want to scale back your weight goals. 1/2 per week is definitely doable. And if the scale still isn't budging, there are a couple things you might want to try:

    weigh and measure everything you eat and count calories for a few days. you may be eating far more than you think.

    or the opposite could be true. You may not be eating enough. in that case, add 200 caloires per day to your intake and it might make the scale start going your way.
