Have you ever felt this way??

I've been working our pretty hard these last few months. With a few hiccups around the holidays. But I've managed to lose about 4 lbs. Good right! Well I fell like I lost 10. I look in the mirror and see a bigger difference than the number on the scale. Just not sure it makes sense. Maybe it's a mind over matter thought.

It's just an odd feeling to feel thinner than what the scale says. Could it be a result of muscle?

    I also feel smaller that the scale says. The scale says that I have not lost any weight! But I thought I did. It is depressing. I really want the scale to change.

    Take your measurements as well! You could be getting smaller by inches, not pounds. :smile:

    DON'T OBSESS ABOUT THE SCALE. If you are getting more toned and losing inches, you are doing great!!!

    Weird but I was thinking exactly the same thing yesterday. Yes, I know for sure that "spare" tire is smaller. But I don't "measure" every part of my body so I don't know for certain. I feel that the last pounds that I've gained are the first to disappear. Hope that makes sense. I mean I know I've gained fat in places that aren't as noticeable as say, my waist for example. I wish the scale would go down every week as hard as I am working at it. But in my heart I know that I am living a healthy lifestyle now and the fat is disappearing, slowly but surely. I think if I had "instant" gratification, I wouldn't appreciate it so much, nor would I have the time to really establish a new way of living(food and exercise)

    Youre doing great!!!! denise in Sams Valley OR
