I dont believe the scale marks your true progress. Before starting my primal journey (again) I was on a 3 month eating bender. I ate everything and anything. My boyfriend told me he never met a girl who could eat so much. I kept eating because the scale showed I wasnt gaining a pound. I figured why not eat if Im not gaining weight. I would eat so much at times that all I could do was lay in bed feeling sick, gassy and bloated. I would weigh myself every day and same weight 136-138. If I ate a lot of salty foods I would be at the high end. I live in Hawaii so I'm always in dresses which are very forgiving if you gain weight so it takes a while to tell especially because I gain evenly all over. Until I tried on my jeans and a fitted skirt and Yikes I couldnt even get the zipper on the skirt close enough to zip up and my jeans were so tight and I had major muffin top. My workout tops were all tight and hugged my belly where before they were loose. I finally went to the doctor because I felt dizzy, extremely tired and depressed everyday I couldnt even get out of bed unless I worked. He did tests on me and showed I was normal. So for New Years I went strict primal after 1 week all my symptoms I went to the doctor for were gone, after 2 weeks all my clothes fit perfectly again. The scale however showed me @ 132 after my first, week yay a good loss. Then my second week showed me between 133-135. This morning 135. I finally I threw the scale far under my bed and got my tightest jean skirt out and yep it fits again and its a little loose. So now I'm going strictly by measurements and how my clothes fit. My boyfriend says he sees the biggest difference in my thighs less cellulite and they look stronger. I see progress but I dont want the scale to throw me off track and put me back on a feeding frenzy cause I'm depressed its not moving. I look in the mirror and I look less jiggly and much tighter and leaner. Screw the scale! I feel about 10#'s smaller my energy is through the roof. Yay! I wont be weighing myself to check my progress any more. Im only doing measurements, seeing how my clothes fit and photos. I might weigh in about once a month out of curiosity. I'm lifting weights and doing spin 3 days a week, riding my bike and taking long walks. So dont be discouraged by the scale if it's not showing you what you want to see!

Dont let the numbers on the scale fool you.
