I will preface this with saying I am not a fitness expert and will claim to know very little about the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to living healthy.

With that being said..... let's get to it.

You aren't seeing the scale move. Everyday it becomes your obsession. You know in your heart of hearts that you are giving it your all. AND.... YET.... you don't see those numbers fall.

Let me tell you that it's basic physiology. Muscle weighs more than FAT. There is NOTHING you can do about it. So STOP looking at the scale. Put it away for the month, and enjoy how your body is changing and your clothes are starting to fit differently on you.

Then, AND I MEAN ONLY THEN, in a MONTH........... pull that scale back out and see where you are at. The "optimal" weight loss for a month is 2 lbs a week. If you are looking for something more than that... STOP what you are doing and refer back to line 6. It's no joke, folks.


Yesterday, I bought my first size 12 dress. It's been over 9 years since I have been able to fit into a size 12 ANYTHING.                              


I will post photos tomorrow. So until then......

Congrats on the size 12! It's a great feeling when you can start buying smaller clothes! You are so right about the scale, I need to work on that!
