I am frustrated, angry and befuddled. I know one needs to focus on the overall direction. I am just not feeling so positive this morning. In fact, I was feeling quite good until I stepped on the dam scales.
Advice to shake thinks up and restart the downward trend is welcome.
Happy weekend to all.
Keep at it, the scale WILL start going down again. Really, it is average weekly loss that's important. I've had the scale not move for a week, sometimes two. Then, back-to-back 7lb loss weeks. I tend to have a good week, and couple of slower ones, then another good one. The average, though, remains fairly consistant.
If you KNOW you are running a good deficit, don't worry, be happy! The loss will come.
