Oh No!! The Scale Isn’t Going Down, What Am I Doing Wrong?

This is a common complaint amongst those who have undertaken diet and lifestyle changes.  “I’m doing everything right and the number just isn’t dropping” or “No matter what I do, I’m just not losing weight”.   I have heard it many time from friends who are in the same position I was in 9 months ago.  Heck, I said it myself 100 times… “I’m eating right, I’m exercising, WTF; why am I not losing weight”.  Its disheartening and frustrating.  Michelle said it right and continues to tell me:  “it took you 30+ years to put on the weight.. its not going to come off over night!”.  She is so right.

You have to keep at it.  Its not a “30 day miracle diet” or something you do for a week to fit into your skinny jeans.  You are changing your life; it takes time for your body to adjust to not being a fat-guy(™).  There will be ups and downs along the way.   Just keep working at it, you will get there!

What strategies have you used to keep going?
