It's Official!!

Three steps forward and two steps back.

That’s how I’m feeling today. I had lost 9 pounds as of one week ago. Then came last week. Last week was rough. I was struggling with so many cravings, I wound up gaining 2 lbs throughout the week. Not so bad, I can recover from 2 lbs. Then came the weekend. I gained another 2 lbs on Saturday. I decided to watch it on Sunday and try to recover. Well, I didn’t really eat that much on Sunday. I was within my target calorie range. It was obviously sodium-packed calories, since this morning’s weigh-in was up another 3 lbs. That’s a 7 lb gain since last week! What is going on with me?

As of today, I am back. I think that a large majority of those pounds are water, due to the mass sodium that I consumed yesterday. I also was not on the ball with running or working out at all last week. It was pitiful. If I’m going to make this work, I’m going to have to get back on the ball.

As if I needed another reason to kick it in gear… As of Friday afternoon, I’m officially registered:

Ah geez Tammy...weight loss just sucks...your experience these past two weeks sounds sooooo much like mine. I want to throw the scale through a window every time I set foot on it (and yet, I go back to it time and time again...just like a jilted lover).

Hang in there.

I like Alice's jilted lover reference.

At least you don't get thrown out of the grocery store.

Great job biting the bullet and registering. Don't worry about the extra weight. Just drink lots of water and it will stabilize soon enough.
