I lost a whopping 0.2 pounds this week!
I have spent most of the day pep-talking myself. I followed my plan. I didn't even use all my "weekly" points. I exercised. I made sure I followed the "healthy checks" on eating a balanced diet. The scale doesn't always show what's going on. Sometimes you're losing inches and not pounds (so I took some measurements). Maybe it's water weight. It'll show up later. Don't give up. Keep working the plan. Don't be discouraged. Keep exercising. Your body's in shock. The weight came on slowly so it's going to come off slowly. It's better to lose it slowly. At least I lost something. Hang in there. Life isn't a straight line, and neither is weight loss.
How'd I do? Did I miss some pep talk phrases?
http://www.kimbensen.com/. It's pretty remarkable! She has progress pictures that she took every couple of months or so, and what got me about them was that it was quite a long time before you could start seeing a real difference in her looks. It helps me to see things like this because I need to know that this is going to be a long, long journey. I've started down this road so many times that I know what kinds of pot holes are coming up....like only losing two tenths of a pound in a week, or (heaven forbid!) gaining a pound when you've done everything right. But knowing she achieved her goal shows me that it is possible for me to achieve my goal! Two tenths of a pound at a time, if necessary.
