Thoughts on a Weight Loss Slowdown

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Well, I guess this had to happen.

I've consistently lost one pound a week since starting SparkDiet but this week when I got on the scale for the weekly weigh-in, I had stayed the same. I decided not to record my weight since I had had a high-sodium meal the night before and maybe it was just retaining water. But today when I weighed in again, it shows me actually gaining a pound!


I'm trying really hard not to be down about this. Still keeping up with my newly learned good habits...telling myself it may just be wacky hormones...

Sigh, maybe the grey skies are keeping me down, too. emoticon

    Hang in there friend. Believe me, i do understand how discouraging the scale can be. Just trust that it will change. If you are doing what you need for a healthier you, the weight will follow. It's a slow process - our age makes it a slower process. The cool thing for me to think though, if it's coming off this slow, then once it's off, it will stay off. Unlike losing it fast and then gaining it all back.
    We all have off days, you are doing awesome! Like your car! My husband is a MOPAR Freak!

    Cindy, Enduring is right, and I heard somewhere too that something also happens with muscles (it must have been on Biggest Loser) when you are working out to make them retain water. Just keep at it, you are doing great. Terry

    So sorry you got a disappointment on the scales. Whatever you do don't let it stop you from seeing the big picture. And remember how well you've been doing. Usually a high salt meal does make you hold water and therefore hold the weight. And they say it takes 2 days for food to go through our bodies. So keep going. I'm sure next week you'll be smiling.
