The scale is going the wrong way!!!!

Sunday, July 24, 2011

I haven't been on the scale for a month-I was concentrating on doing what I needed to do, and I believed that I would see great progress after a month, and go to weighing in once a month rather than once a week. I decided today to check in and see how much I had lost while doing all the "right" things, and having such a good attitude, and......yeah, there was a 15 lb, yes you read that right-15 lb gain from a month ago!!!!! WHAT????? NO WAY!!!! My scale is broken, I am bloated, I have been constipated,I'm starting menopause.... on and on I come up with the reasons, but none of them are probably the real reason....I am crushed and sad, and deppressed, and while I am the first one to tell other people not to give up, that is what I want to do. Do you know how long it will take to lose 15 lbs??? JUST to getback to where I was a month ago???? Whatever, I can't even think about it right now.....

    I agree, re-weigh yourself later.

    Maybe you built a lot of muscle? Do you also meaure yourself?

    I did measurements too and those help me see the loss.

    The 15 pounds will come off, don't give up!

    Hi Palmy. I feel your pain girl. I would also be very depressed. But that is not going to help anything.
    I have to ask if you've been tracking your food on the nutrition tracker..
    When you weighed in did you weigh in the same time of day as you usually do? wear the same weight clothing? Are you weighing in on a flat surface?
    Re-weigh yourself tomorrow.
    I haven't seen you on here much. Be sure to check on everyday for encouragement and tips to make yourself successful.
    Start tomorrow with a plan.
    I still want to meet up next summer!
    Don't give up my friend!
