Looking at the big picture

Perspective is an important thing to maintain in life, and when attempting a weight loss program it can help you over those rough spots that will happen on the journey.There will be weeks of ups for different reasons, plateaus and weeks when you think you should have lost huge, but only an ounce or two is lost. I keep our weigh ins on index cards in a small box and keep another record of my own numbers along with copies of our menus and other daily information. This morning, just out of curiosity, I decided to peek at what my weight as on this day a year ago. The progress personally has been so slow and so difficult that I thought this might give me a lift.

Guess what ? After a full year of trying to lose weight, I am 10 pounds heavier. 10pounds and 2 ounces to be exact. Stimulating, isn't it ?

I know that's frustrating. Try not to be discouraged, Diane. You do your best to make healthful meals and good choices, so you should feel proud of yourself for that. I'm sorry your body isn't cooperating :(
