After so many years of being overweight (and watching the scale go higher and higher), and finally losing about half of what I need to, I have learned one piece of wisdom that I can share with those of you whose scale won't budge:
Maintaining your weight, whatever it is, is a victory! Don't discount it or be too discouraged by it! Maybe it doesn't look as good in a weight loss challenge, but it is a personal victory, and be proud of yourself!
It's heartening for me to be reminded of that.
