Weigh In

The Scale Has Stopped Moving

I’ve weighed the exact same thing for the past 4 or 5 days.  Normally, I would be discouraged, and I’d give up, and go back to eating junk food, candy, fast food, etc.  But now I know that the weight loss will occur, because I am eating the correct number of calories, getting some exercise, and making healthy choices.  The “math” is on my side.  The problem with television shows like “The Biggest Loser” is that they give the false impression that weight loss must be quick, fast, and dramatic.  It took me 10 years to gain this weight, and it’s going to take more than 10 days to lose it.  If I were losing weight for “vanities-sake”, I’d be discouraged.  But, I’m not.  I can “feel” my body changing, slowly but surely.  Tomorrow, I’ll do the right things to be healthy.  And the next day, and the next, and the next, and the next.  The weight loss will come when the weight loss comes.  Until then, I’m going to do the right things.  I AM GOING TO DO THE RIGHT THINGS!!!

My weight as of 02-21-2007:  233.5 Pounds

  1. Hey, 1/2 pound a week is great! That shows you are doing it right, not just shedding a lot of water weight.

    And picture in your mind two sticks of butter – that’s 1/2 of pound of fat. You want those two sticks of butter back on your body? No!

    Are you really weighing yourself everyday? Maybe you should change it to once a week.
