I know I shouldn't!

I keep peeking at the scale this week, because I was so convinced that I'd be losing.
The beginning of the week I was all the way up to 242.5, within the week I got back down to 237, today I am back up to 240.

I know, it doesn't mean anything, and I KNOW I shouldn't let it bother me. But it does.
I've been to the Personal trainer for four weeks already. (thats crazy! really?!)
And although I know it's been great for me and only getting better... I can't honestly say that I am not disappointing that I am seeing zero results.

I want some change, damnit! And I want it now!

Patience! I think that is the thing you need to focus on more than the scale LOL!

I totally understand wanting to see the results, but also know that some of those results are intangible, like the benefit to your heart and lungs from the exercise and the fitness you are building and your confidence in yourself.

We all want the instant weight gratification, but the scale number is only that tiny blip of time at that very instant that you step on it. You could weigh more or less a couple hours earlier or later.

(Easier said than done, I know)

I know :-(

I don't think its so much of wishing I had results from these past few weeks... so much as the realization that I've been doing this hardcore for a YEAR now.

I've been dieting my whole life. But for a YEAR I've had a relatively cheat-free amazing streak of eating and so much exercise! And I'm still stuck :-/
