So if I strict diet, get frustrated and overeat, sometimes I will start to believe I can eat lots of treats and not gain weight because the lag time fools me. Give yourself some time. Your lag time might be even longer.
      Okay, this gives me hope. I lost the first week, but haven't noticed a damned thing since! The scale moves up and down within the same 3lb range, so I'm sure it's just day to day fluctuation. Same with the tape measure. I don't seem to be getting smaller at all by measurement, although I do seem to be gradually tightening the belt I wear day to day (still in my biggest size jeans, but they're annoyingly loose without a belt), so maybe I'm not measuring right.
      Although the lag time would explain why the scale stubbornly refuses to move.
