its hard to be positive all the time with this journey because we see up and downs. resently I saw a weight gain of 4 pounds. I freaked out. I know I was doing the right things but why did I not lose. then I said to myself, are you feeling better, do you have more energy, do I feel like I have lost around my stomach, etc.. the answers to this question was yes. so this is what I told myself. you are doing the right thing and one day the results are going to floor you. take it slow and don't let it get you down as long as you know you are doing the right things. things will turn out GREAT. SUCCESS will come. best of luck and keep going you can do this.
