Ugh, the Scale hasn't changed, even after nearly 3 years of going at it!

Sometimes it's nice that some things don't ever change, however, the scale is not one of them! A couple days ago, I posted about how I'm going to focus on getting down one more size and how weight does not really matter since I'm focusing on density and heightening my metabolism by toning and becoming stronger. The truth of the matter is that I still want to see the scale go down! What women doesn't? LOL Well I'm actually UP two pounds from this time last week... and it is impossible to gain that much muscle in that short of a period, but I am fully aware that when intensifying a workout regime that it's normal to gain before you lose. I just really hate seeing it actually happen, especially knowing that I have been doing everything right. And while I was prepared to see an increase in weight, it still sucks. Stupid scale... it's kinda like a bad relationship, you keep hoping and hoping for change, but the lousy bastard never lives up to your standards!
I actually lost an inch from my waist since last week and my size 2s are getting a little loose again. So I know I'm making progress again, it's just that mental battle. This is incredibly familiar territory and I always warn all my.... hmm... well, people I give advice to about weight loss... about how the scale can play dirty, but I still want to punch something when it plays dirty with me. Ah, well I cannot expect to be the exception,now can I? That just would not be fair! Anyway, I'll keep holding myself accountable and reminding myself that soon I'll see that number go down! Hopefully by February I'll be down to 130 again or maybe even see the 120s again??!?!? But I shan't be greedy, an even 130 would be lovely!
I'm off to workout and get my Friday junk done! Those four 10 hour days suck, but I sure do love my Fridays!
