My history shows that if you are sticking to it, the pounds and the inches don't come off at exactly the same time. It is like your body size shrinks after the weight is lost.

The inches are where it really matters! the scale is just a number :)

The scale doesn't lie, but it doesn't always tell the truth, either... LOL.. Sometimes the weight is water hanging around if you aren't drinking enough... yes, drinking more keeps your body from hanging on to it. sometimes it is muscle that you have been building and that is disguising the weight loss. Just keep that Spark burning, and you will get there. And you are already doing your heart and your body a huge favor by exercising and by the weight you have already lost.

I find the true indication of body changes is the way my clothes fit. Don't obsess about the scale -- take your measurements once a month and you will be much happier with the results. I have had the scale stay the same for 3 months but the inches kept going. Eventually the two catch up with each other
So, yesterday I weighed and my scale has not moved in a week despite my better eating and work out habits. I had my first bad day (off diet) in 3 weeks! I sat around all day and did nothing and ate whatever I wanted. However, today I am proud to say I am back on board! I was at the store today trying on shirts and I am down a shirt size!! All of the 2X shirts swallowed me!
All I can say is goodbye 2X HELLO 1X!! I am getting there!
Even though I may not be loosing lbs. I am still loosing inches!!
