I've been losing at an average of just over a pound a week for the last 8 months. some weeks it doesn't change, some weeks it actually goes up and some weeks goes down a couple or three. I've kept on track by tracking my weekly weight and printing out a graph. It actually shows a much steadier downward trend and fewer/shorter plateaus than I think I've had. Every time I wonder why the scale hasn't changed I look at the graph on my wall and think, okay, that's damn good so far, I just have to keep doing what I'm doing.
