When you get caught in the trap of looking for the end result you end up getting frustrated that you are not there yet. Frustration often leads to quitting and getting set further back. This is a vicious cycle to get into that can leave you stuck.
You need to change your focus. Stop looking for a certain number on the scale, stop looking for a certain size on your clothing tags. Instead look for healthy things you can do every day. Focus on feeding your body the good foods it needs, focus on healthy habits, focus on doing what you need to do each day. Before you know it the results you desire will occur.
