I want some of that instant gratification

yeah..... gimme some of that..... It's been 3 and a half weeks since the big lifestyle change. I lost 7 pounds the first 10 days, and now the scales are frozen.... I haven't lost an ounce since. I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW: your body kinda goes into shock....you're building muscles....those muscles are retaining fluid....muscle weighs more than fat. My head knows all these things, but I don't like it! I'm walking about 4 miles in an hour at least 5 times a week.... I'm watching what I eat and counting calories. I'm really doing well with that. I do splurge here and there, but I have to be realistic if this is going to last. I know that you can tell that I've lost weight... I can tell in the mirror, but I am obsessed with that large number on my scales. I can't help it. I KNOW it's just a number, but sometimes a number says a lot....The big test is next week. We're leaving Sunday to go to Orlando for 5 days. 5 days of being tempted by eating out and all kinds of goodies. I don't want to sabotage myself... I want my new habits to carry over. I WILL NOT go to Orlando and gain those 7 pounds back!!!! I have made a deal with myself. I'm not getting back on that scale until 1 month from today. I'm going to keep up with my exercise and new eating habits. I CAN DO THIS I CAN DO THIS I CAN DO THIS!!! I can. I know I can. I HAVE to..... Why does it just have to be so stinkin' hard?? I guess if I knew that answer I'd be a kazillionaire, and none of us would be fat.......

You look great, and that's what's important. As long as you feel good, too.
Enjoy your trip. Good luck, and don't deprive yourself too much. :)

Yes I know the feeling of obsessing about the scale well. You are so right thou that its about long term lifestayle changes. I hope you have a fabulous time in Orlando!

You are doing so great! 7 pounds is 28 sticks of butter! If you are tempted in Orlando, drink some water first and then you will be too full to eat as much as you might have. I think 1 month is a great idea! You can do it!
