I was in a bit of a funk today. I thought this past week was fantastic. I totally stayed in my calorie range - even with having a few glasses of wine over the weekend. I did anywhere between 30 and 75 minutes cardio every day, plus got my strength training in.

Today, of course, was weigh-in, and when I stepped on that scale.....NOTHING! I couldn't believe my eyes. This is why in the past I wouldn't weigh myself. I didn't want to be discouraged if the scale didn't move. I could tell I was losing by how my clothes fit.

Well, I wallowed in self-pity for most the morning. When I decided it was enough, I did my cardio, the p90x chest and back dvd AND took the dog for a walk since it was another beautiful day. I just finished my grilled chicken salad, and now I think I will put on some relaxing music and read a book.

    Dont just look at the scale. I weighed myself and it seemed like I should have lost more than I did but all the counts is how you feel!!! emoticon

    I hate the scale too! I'm a bit worried about having to weigh in weekly as part of the 5% challenge, as I usually only weigh in once a month.

    It's such a mental game. If I'm up, I celebrate (usually with overindulging), if I'm done, I get frustrated and give up.

    Good for you for picking yourself up again. I've been inspired!

    I weigh every morning and when the scales are stuck it just makes me grumpy! But then I just start my day and get determined! I know the people who tell me that I must be losing inches so that is good mean well but I just REALLY want those silly scales to go DOWN!!!! Its just a mental thing! You can do it!!! As long as we don't give up when we have the frustrating days we will eventually celebrate the loss!!! emoticon
