Seriously….my weight loss gear is stuck in neutral, and I would really, REALLY like for it to head back to drive.

I don’t really know what else to say….just feel like I’m stuck in mud or literally in a car that has died and refuses to budge an inch. BUT…my measurements budged an inch and a half since last month! I know that doesn’t sound very impressive, but even an inch a month would be 12 inches in a year, right? It’s good to know that SOMETHING is moving down even if the numbers on the scale aren’t.

So…here I am stuck again, BUT it doesn’t change how far I HAVE gotten. It doesn’t change how much healthier I am now than I was last year at this time.  In 12 days, it will be my 1 year Anniversary of changing my lifestyle to a healthier one. Whether I lose another pound before that day or not…I still have so much to celebrate! 🙂


  1. If you are exercising as well, or even just managing to move around more than you used to, don’t forget that muscle is heavier than fat! So it might be that you are still losing fat, but gaining muscle tone 🙂 and the measurement suggest that might the case, so don’t worry you’re doing great.


  2. Weird, I left a reply, but it is not showing up. So, apologies if you get my comment twice, but I think it is worth repeating just in case it did vanish. Muscle is heavier than fat, so you might be still losing fat, but gaining some muscle tone! That’s why it is good to take the measurements as well as weighing. So don’t fret, you’re doing great 🙂


    1. I got both…For some reason, your comments showed up in my spam folder! Not sure why because they shouldn’t!
      My mom said almost the same thing you said. Years ago when I got stuck and got frustrated and basically gave up, I wish that I had started taking measurements to see if that was changing. Maybe it would given me the motivation THEN so I wouldn’t be where I am now. Oh well, as long as there’s some positive change, I am happy! Thanks!
