If you KNOW you are running a good deficit, don't worry, be happy! The loss will come.

Thanks Michael. I know in my heart you are right and in fact, this is what I tell DH regularly. It is just frustrating. On the otherhand it is great to have a place where one can vent and be understood by others. No worries, I am in this for the long haul. I look forward to the next 'drop' on the scales.

With your advice I went back and looked at my April 1st challenge. I had a goal of dropping 28lbs or 10% by April 1st. I am currently down 22 of those 28 lbs...with at least 5 weeks to in hindsight, not so bad.

I think the quick loss in the beginning, (normal with any significant change in life style) needs to even out and the body is adapting to the new norm.

Have a great day.
