Week 4 of Cracking the Fat

The fourth week ended with a 2 pound loss giving me a total of 10 pounds lost for 4 weeks.

This makes me happy.

I always have my weight loss at the end of the week, so I spend the first part of the week frustrated. But now I know and I'll try not to be too disappointed on Tuesday's and Wednesday's weigh-ins.

My clothes are getting a little looser and that too, makes me happy.

I am NOT the type of person who can lose 10 pounds and drop a whole clothing size. This does not make me happy.

Unfortunately, I am at the magic number that has been a huge plateau problem for me in the past. Over the years, when I have been at this weight, it was fairly easy to maintain for months and months until I would start snacking away - then I would hit the other plateau . . . the 10 pounds heavier one. Knowing this does not make me happy.

But, I have managed very nicely for four weeks and am willing to keep on, so maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to crack this number that my body seems to love and keep on losing.

That will make me very, very happy.

Wow!! Hurray for your 10 pounds!! What a boost. I know you are at a previous plateau but this is a brave new world!!! You can move on this time.

Oh, how well I know where you are. Let's hope this is the last time you see this number. Onward and downward!

Wow...10 lb. is great!! I'm glad you are having success in this...

ten pounds is REALLY good - I am very happy for you. and you are right the scale makes NO sense for part of the week. I think every week. Just have to look at it as a science experiment.

Did you ever say how the exercise went for you last week (with the heat?!!!)

Ten pounds is so great! Why do I think this is merely a point on the scale and that you'll soon well past it?

Congrats on the 10 pounds girl!! Sticking with something for a whole month is a big, big deal. Yay you!

It will just keep getting better too. But try not to be frustrated with no losses on days or even weeks. This plan can keep you steady, then all of the sudden you get a WHOOSH in weight loss. You just have to work it like she writes it. & you will get there.

You will be at a weight soon where 10 pounds IS a size. It wasn't until I was under 165 pounds that smaller losses made a difference. Keep it up!

You're doing great! Losing 10 lbs in a month is a great boost to "I can do it." I understand the power of plateau numbers but this time you are in a very different place in all kinds of ways. You're much stronger now and losing the "plateau place" is part of the healing :) You can do it!
