I am still trudging on....ignoring my scale...while enjoying smaller clothes

Well, after 2 weeks of no movement on the scale...a couple of days ago it went down a pound...and for the last couple of days...again no movement. But, I am still trudging on. I am still eating right, working out 4-5x a week...and moving on. In inches I am going down...I tried on a pair of jeans last night that I haven't worn in a couple of years, and they slid right on...I couldn't believe it!! I have gone down almost 3 sizes in my jeans...and that to me is amazing! But I really want the scale to move....why is it that we let that # on the scale define us?? When it goes down, it makes me so happy...I feel lighter, happier...and when it stays the same, or even goes up a little...I get ticked. I feel heavy, sad, and ticked off. Even though from one day to another I can tell the difference in my clothes...that stupid # on the scale makes all the difference in the world.
Well, next Tuesday is my 1st fill...and today is 4 weeks since my surgery...I am ready to get this fill stuff started and ready to get my weight dropping!


  1. hope your fill goes well. mine was a breeze - just wish i could feel it more.

    here's to hoping #2 will make some difference.

  2. Hey Susieq, don't sweat the lack of pounds lost. I hear that the first 2-4 wks, you really don't lose much weight due to the swelling from the Surgery. But the fact that your clothes is beginning to fall off, now that's an NSV if you ask me! I can't wait to hear what the Dr's scale reads. I bet it is lower than yours! I can't wait (and yet, terrified) to begin my journey next week.
