Your body is also building up muscle from exercising.  I would start tracking how many inches you’re losing as well to keep you motivated.

I completely understand the frustration.  I just posted a thread “WOOO! SHEDDING POUNDS!” but it’s not about how I am currently.  It gives you a background of what I’ve been going through.

I wish you the best of luck.

It’s only been 2 weeks. Your body is probably retaining some water and you are building muscle. The more you stress out the harder time you’re going to have to lose the weight.

You know what you need to do to keep you on track, which is recording what you eat. Take it one day at a time and do not beat yourself up about it. Continue to workout and fix your diet and you’ll lose the weight.

Don’t look at the scale, look in the mirror! I bet you’re getting some really sexy toning that can’t be judged but the number on the scale!

I agree with @DesireeAnne: about tracking inches. I’ve been monitoring my weight and have a goal weight in mind, but the real numbers I’m concerned with are my inches. Just give yourself enough time between weigh-ins and measurements so you don’t get too discouraged.

Definitely go back to your food log! I find with every little way of “tracking” my different fitness efforts, it helps to motivate me that much more. If i didn’t have such a great weigh-in, I can at least look back at my week’s diet and know I did a good job and my pay off will come eventually.

Good luck and you’ll get past your wall. Just hang in there!

i hear ya!!

im on the same boat but the way i see it is id eat crappy food anyway, even if i didnt work out, at least with working out i dont feel so bad.. but ive been trying to stay on track and like you,a lot of bees have told me that the lack of weight loss is due to water rentention for muscle repair, so thats what i keep telling myself:)
