Does the number on the scale matter?

I'm really starting to get discouraged with my weight loss or as it happens, the lack of weight loss. I have been losing and gaining the same pound for the last 3 weeks. I'm not sure what is going on. I think what I need to do is focus a little more on my eating plan. I thought that I have been eating well and have been watching my portions. I do have at least one meal a week that is not too good but I would think that wouldn't affect my weight like this. Maybe it is. When I make something at home I always swap out the full fat/high calorie items for lower fat/calorie items and I have been doing some sort of exercise every day. I'm not sure what it is but I will fix it! I will check out some websites for some foods that boost weight loss or some new menu ideas.  I have read numerous articles about not fixating on the number but how I feel and how my clothes feel. I do feel great and my clothes are fitting better. It is just really hard when that number is not moving. It is something I can see that the work I am doing is making progress. I also think I need a little more patience. I keep saying this but it's true- it didn't get put on in a hurry and it won't come off in a hurry. Does anyone have any ideas for me???

  1. Your asking the right question. It's easy to get fixated whether it's the number on the scale or the check marks on the to-do list. Progress is rarely represented by the bigger number. I love that you're making changes and improvements. It's for a lifetime, and it doesn't matter if you get there tomorrow or the day after, it only matters that you keep working to get there. I say booyah.
