SIGNS OF PROGRESS
Think about what triggered you wanting to start your weight-loss journey. It could have been anything from realizing you can't fit in your jeans any longer or you have a vacation coming up to wanting to be able to run and play with your children.
Whatever your original intention, once you start losing weight a new motivation takes over. You start seeing the scale go down as you shed some pounds and that becomes a huge source of motivation to keep going. But what happens when a weight-loss plateau threatens to kill that motivation? Or maybe you're already 9 days in and you haven't seen any weight loss yet... another reason you might start thinking negatively about weight loss and wondering if it will work for you.
Let me just say.... this is all inevitable, and it happens to the best of us. We lose weight quickly in the beginning and then some times we don't. What you need to understand is that it isn't a sign of failure, rather just a sign you need to measure your progress in other ways than just the scale. The number on the scale is only ONE of the ways to measure success so don't just focus on that.
