Blech!

Well I expected not to see the 60s today, however, I did not plan on a 2.2 gain! that is almost impossible. I know that I ate some things I shouldnt have on Friday, but Saturday and yesterday I ate just fine. However, since last night, I have been extremely bloated and gassy. All day at work I have been very uncomfortable and I guess I am not surprised that I am up. I just never expected to be THIS up.

The good thing is, I weighed in. Not that there is anything wrong with those who over eat or are sick,etc. and dont weigh in because they know it is up. However, for me, as much as it is hard to see the numbers in the opposite direction, I need that accountability. My body is obviously trying to tell me something, and I need to listen. I need to see those numbers and be very conscious of what I am putting in my body.

I am also proud that I can accept this. I dont think I am a failure, I dont think that I will be stuck in the 170s for ever. I know I got down to the 160s and I know I will get there again. Sure, it sucks that I worked real hard to get to where I was on Friday and now Im way up there again, but Im hoping by Wed, this bloat that I have going on will be over and I can get a more accurate reading from the scale.

I think you've got a great attitude. I'm right there with you on needing the accountability on the scale ... I also (like you) use it as a guide. Our body does send us messages via the scale, and often it isn't all about fat. I think it helps to get a feel for how our weight can vary so we don't totally lose it when we see a number we don't like.

I bet you're right that in a few days the scale will turn itself around. 2.2 lbs ... that can't all be fat - no way.

You'll be back into the 160s in no time.

Sometimes it helps if you average your weight for the week. The body can fluctuate so much in a day and you'll start to see a pattern of ups and downs within a couple of pounds. You'll get there soon.

There is no way this is a failure. You have come so far, you've learned so much, you are a work in progress. If it were easy and you just zoomed down to goal, yes that would be nice but you wouldn't appreciate the efforts it took to get there and you might have regained it all back. No, instead you are learning with each and every step and doing this for life! I'm very proud of you and that 2.2 is water, not fat.

Dang it! I was thinking about you today, and had my fingers crossed. I know you didn't really gain that over the weekend. Impossible. I am really proud of you for posting - it's hard to do, but it is smart to keep accountable. You will get there this week, promise!

You've got the right attitude! Keep going!

Stay away from the scale lol. Are you measuring your inches lost? Stay positive and keep going....! ; )

I am sure it will be gone next week just like it was for me. It is just water. Think about how much extra food you would have had to eat to gain 2 lbs. Don't stress it!

Good for you for hanging in there. My body fluctuates massively like that too, after certain foods and especially when I've eaten out a lot, I wrote a post about it earlier. It's likely a false gain from extra sodium or a particular food and will even out again once the bloating and fluid go away.

You'll be back in a couple of days, you'll see.

WAY TO GO FOR POSTING! I AM ALWAYS TEMPTED NOT TO POST WITH A GAIN.

Once the number shows up, it will be back. I was there over and over again when I was losing last year. It's a 2 pound water weight issue you're dealing with now. Don't fret your pretty head about it. =)
