Trying to look at the positive, any loss is better than a gain even if it only shows in my clothes and not the scales!o

you're lucky if it shows on the clothes! That's a great motivator.

Unfortunately, one of the reasons I sometimes get discouraged is because there is almost no change in size for me until I lose something like 20 lbs... keep up the good work.

Hey Zephr - I wanted to thank you for making me think about something and giving myself a good idea to stay motivated.

I bought a dress that would normally not wear because it wasn't quite right for my current size (it's a wrap dress, so the tugging is problematic). I bought it online, so returning it would be a pain. I'm using it as my "goal dress" - basically as something that can visually demonstrate what's happening over the challenge. I may not want to wear it at the end of THIS challenge, but who knows.

Thanks!
