I weighed myself this morning, even though I know I shouldn't have. I know I should only weigh myself once a week because otherwise I'm very likely to get obsessed with the number on the scale. Despite that I weighed myself anyway, and of course I was disappointed by what I saw. I was 227.6, which is up half a pound since the last time I weighed myself. I know I shouldn't worry about the little things like that, but I have a very obsessive mind and it's hard for me to just live everyday without focusing on the tiny details. I was just sitting here thinking how slow this is going, and thinking of ways I could speed up the weight loss process. But then I remembered, it's not just about losing the weight, it's about living better, treating myself better, feeling better, being more active, and just being happier. Trying to lose weight faster is just going to make it harder for me to stick with the things that make me feel better. So I'm going to try and focus this afternoon on treating myself while, eating well, and feeling well. The weight doesn't matter. Of course I want to lose weight, because I know I would feel better physically, but I'm already feeling 100% better after just a week of eating better. Imagine how much better I'm going to feel after another week or a month or a year. I'm looking forward to finding out.

    I like your attitude! The fact this is, and should be, a long term commitment, is a great reminder.

    Make sure you measured too if you need numbers too. I didn't in the beginning and wished I did. However, I continue to see changes. You will too. The scale isn't everything.

    My trainer told me to throw my scale away. LOL I understand how you feel. I weigh every morning. I've been in a plateau since December. I am know I have a 4 lb range. Just have to see....and waiting for a change downward. ....
