This Scale Is Driving Me Crazy!

Smart and Trendy Moms

This week has been a hard one for me weight-wise.  Up until recently, I have seen a steady decrease in weight but it seems that I have hit a plateau when it comes to actually losing weight.

Nothing has changed except my workout routine.  I haven't increased my eating.  I haven't slacked off on the workouts.  I'm still drinking tons of water but no weight loss.  Ugh!

Yeah, yeah, I know that muscle weighs more but it is beyond me how I can step on the scale one time and within 20 minutes it is 3-4lbs more. 

P.S. I have a Giveaway ending today, March 4, at 12:00.  Click Here to enter.

So . . . I am going to skip this week's weigh in at Weight Watchers and I am not going to step on the scale for an entire week.  I'm going to keep up with what I am doing and see if I see a big difference.  I know this may sound silly but I am trying to trick myself.  LOL

Anybody else run into a plateau?


  1. HANG IN THERE! Happens to all of us at some point! A week away from the scale might be a good idea, then you'll be super excited when you see weight loss at two week weigh in instead of one :)

  2. I'm just getting started on my weight loss program.
    Although not sure how well it's going to go because I'm in a wheelchair...we'll see!
    I found this site that has some good ideas to get off your plateau.
