This SUCKS!!!... 1 pound WEIGHT LOSS!

I have done EVERYTHING right this week.. everything. I tracked every morsel I put in my mouth. I ate a variety of foods, ya know, mixed my regular same old, same old up in the food department. Exercised more than I have in years... and I am still a little sore from the new activity. It's the kind of sore that makes you feel good because you know that your body is changing.

All of that... and I weigh in this morning and I lost 1 pound!! ONE POUND, are you freaking kidding me. I worked my ass off and ONE POUND??? I know, it's better than gaining but come on scale gods.. gimme something more for my effort. This sucks!


  1. I know exactly what you mean. Also it kinda sucks cause I was a major piggy on my barcelona trip, I am way to scared to step on the scales now. But I dont know whats wrong with me cause I loose weight so slowly. If i loose 2 pound a month its like a big deal for me.

  2. Keep on keeping on and the scale will probably be kinder to you next week. Anyway, celebrate a loss!!!!!!

  3. I pound is awesome, it truly is! It's a safe and healthy weight loss.
    Have you ever read this?

    "Hello, do you know me? If you don't you should. I'm a pound of fat, and I'm the happiest pound of fat that you would ever want to meet. Want to know why? It's because no one ever wants to lose me; I'm Only One Pound, just a pound. Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds or fifteen pounds, but never only one, so I just stick around and happily keep you fat. Then I add to myself ever so slyly so that you never seem to notice it, that is until I've grown to ten, twenty or even more pounds in weight. Yes, it's fun being Only One Pound of fat, left to do as I please. So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying "Oh, I only lost one pound." ( as if that were such a terrible thing!) For you see, if you do this you'll encourage others to keep me around because they will think I'm not worth losing. And I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you. Happy Days!! After all, I'm Only One Pound of fat!!!"

  4. Thanks Gals!! That makes me feel a little better...
    Lori, I love that- if it's ok, I hope it's OK that I post it- it really hit home and it's true- I am doing well- I just am wanting what I want and I want it now- I didn't gain in 13 weeks- I guess I need to just keep going-

    Thanks! You all have made my day!
