Hi there! Yes, Leeka5 is correct about what I meant. I was in a plateau for 4 months, sitting at 170 and the scale didn't budge, as a matter of fact, I gained 7 pounds because my plateau was originally at 164.
I take a weekly picture of my progress and if you look at them (under photos on my page), you will notice that during that plateau and weight gain, my body kept shrinking not too mention I felt great.
If I would have just went off of the numbers on the scale, I would have gotten very discouraged, lost my motivation and quit, probably.
Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you have a great day!
I think what she meant about not letting the scale be important, is to not let it define you. You are not what you weigh and it can fluctuate so much in one day depending on what you're eating, how much you've exercised, etc... I 'gained' 4 lbs overnight because of eating deer sausage last night for dinner. I could panic or I could just drink more water today, hold down the salt intake, and realize what it is and not let it define me. :-)
Look at NSV's (non-scale victories) like a tighter tummy, looser waistband, more self-control over chocolate (oh wait, that's me...)... you know, non-scale victories.
