    There's an obvious physical difference. Your body's just rearranging itself. Keep it up and the weight'll go the way it needs to. I was stuck for a solid 3 weeks oscillating between 125 and 126 lb (on a small framed 5'2" woman.) I went on vacation for 5 days and came back to find that I'd gotten down to 119- 120 oscillation. Just give it time and eat right. Eat PB when you're hungry, stop when you aren't, and move around. Sounds to me like you're on the right path.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    My clothes fit better but aren't any looser yet - they just look better on my body. I'm lucky that because I'm built tall and muscular that I carry the 214 well but I worry about the long-term effects of carrying around so much weight for so long, on my heart and my joints, supplements or not, as well as the metabolic response.
    My advice to you: throw out the scale. Make a production of it. Take a sledgehammer to it. The scale is the worst measure of health ever invented. Ditch it.
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Those damn scales like to mess with us, that's for sure. I think you look fantastic and that the scale will fall in line with the rest of the indicators of your tremendous progress - it will probably just be the last indicator to do so. Keep it up!

    I can't get over your pictures! Throw away your scale RIGHT NOW and just take pictures - you look completely different (and fabulous)!

    +1 The scale can be an evil master. Found myself getting hung up on it again (the one at the gym) and am now totally avoiding it. Hasn't been one in my home in 16 yrs.

    There is a major diff between your two pics, and while the scale (soon to be destroyed) may not be budging, your body comp obviously is.

    And, as much as it doesn't fit the 'ideal,' I'm trying to embrace those German-genes (my dad is Deutschland born and raised, too, and my mom is Hungarian -- double whammy). This is something you seem to have done, judging by having a realistic and healthy goal weight. Madchens like us are strong and built like it and that's cool.

    Keep it up... you're definitely on your way.

    Oh my gosh! AndreAnna you have already changed so much! After your very visible improvements, I am just bummed that you're being hard on yourself about the weight itself. You keep what you're doing, you'll keep visibly seeing improvements AND the number on the scale will start to drop. But the number? It's just a number. I KNOW as a woman, the focus on the number. But instead of beating yourself up, look at your pictures. And focus on how much better you FEEL.
    Because if you didn't know, of that is life made: only of moments; Don't lose the now.
