Trying not to be frustrated

I know I shouldn't weigh in every day, but I can't help myself.  I do it, every day.  Here's the thing....the damn thing has been stuck.  I have been extra good this week so I'm hoping it will show up somehow magically on the scale at WW tomorrow.  We will see.  I created a fake facebook account awhile back.  Well, it's not really fake but it's kind of anonymous.  I made it when I was really into Farm town.  So now I am using it to follow weight loss groups, etc.  This way I can post freely about weight loss items and fitness without my friends and family seeing.  Strange that I feel I need to hide it but I do.  I don't want to shove any of this whole "lifestyle change" *cough* down anyone's throat so to speak.  I had no idea that losing weight and getting fit would affect other people around me as much as it has.  I am going to post a picture that I got from one of the facebook groups I follow.  It really hits home how unhealthy it is to be overweight.

It certainly can be frustrating as the process slows down. But when you look at your wt loss tally, you are sure on track of .5-1 lb per week. That is considered average wt loss by weight watchers and ends up being 2-4 pounds per month. Slow and steady is the key believe me. Don't worry about "the end". Hate to tell you....there is no "end". It is continuing to make good, healthy choices 1 meal at a time. So don't worry about being "done". Just take it day by day and you'll get there. If you don't have a loss this week in spite of hard work, then next week you will and it will be a bit bigger.

I found that for me I would have a couple of small little .2's then a 1.2. But I really lost steadily about 2-3 pounds per month. It was slow all the way along. But in 4 months, that's 10 pounds. Better than nothing or than gaining!

Hang in there. You are doing so well!! You look great and feel great I know.
