Week 3

Ok. Discouragement has officially set in.

Yesterday was my third weigh in.

I got on the scale, looked at the number, and got right back off.

Down 1 lb. THAT'S ALL!

I shook my head and got back on, this time the number looking back at me seemed to taunt me, showing that I had lost 3.5 lbs., and breaking me past a little mental goal I had set.

Still, although I wanted to take that number and run, I knew that the first number and the doubt it brought with it would still be lingering in my head.

So, I did what any nuerotic person would do and I showered, dried my hair, and weighed again, completely naked.

This time...it said I was down 1.5 lbs.

Geesh.

Try as I may, this time the scale wouldn't change. I even picked it up and moved it to another spot on the floor.

No change.

I repositioned my feet and sucked in.

No change.

I guess that means that this week..week 3...I lost 1.5 lbs.

At this rate I should be at my goal weight by....oh....2012.

Are you still exercising? I found that the weeks I was I lost less amounts...because I was changing muscle into fat. Muscle ways more than fat. Maybe you need to measure your waist and hips each week, too. You may be losing inches and not pounds!!! :)
