Little Bit Cat's Journal, 23 April 2014

I was becoming discouraged about my slow weight loss and today decided "it is what it is" and just don't quit. That seems to help. Anybody have any other encouraging ideas?

I have been struggling with the same thoughts. I want to lose it all FAST even though it took 17 years to put it on. Just remember that healthy, permanent weight loss is 1-2 pounds a week, so they say.

It's taken me a year to lose 55 lbs., but the way I see it is that I'm 55 lbs. lighter than I was last year. Slow or fast, as long as you are losing, keep up the good work!

Are you seeing a dietician?

Have other fitness goals, that don't involve your scale. Take measurements so that you really notice the changes in your body. Pick a goal concerning endurance, flexability, weight lifting- anything so that you see progress. And remember that 1-2 pounds really does add up!!

Actually losing so much in a year is admirable! 55 pounds is a LOT of weight. i will be delirious if if I lose anywhere that much in a year. And your skin probably is shrinking with you and you are healthy. Our inner "drummer" needs to be our personal cheerleader! good for you be so proud!

I am wondering if we mostly here from the amazing weight loss examples and if most people do lose one or two pounds a week. I have adjusted my expectations and am happy to lose a pound a week. I have lost at least a dress size so i have to keep telling myself, "It is working".

Yay for you - measurements are a great way to gauge weight loss. Slow and steady wins the race!!
