    First thing drive to a dumpster and throw the candy away and second please do not weigh yourself every day once a week is ok but everyday it's very self destructive I know I have been there i hide the scale now so I have to go looking for it on weigh in day you are better then this you are stronger then this I believe you can do it and I know down deep you do too.

    You have all the tools you have support and you are very motivated so you will lose. I wish there was more I could do for alot of people but distance is the only downside as for talking to you yeah I can do that and that's why I am here to make sure that you stay on track and once you do start losing and you will you will be happy. It takes a while fo your body to adjust but know that it will come off. Please stay off the scale for a week and then weigh yourself a week later.

    Le me the team leaders know how your doing and remeber be good to you.

    Thank you everyone for responding All very good advice!
    And Andina get out of the house for an hour get outside and away from the temptation altogether! Eat or drink something as sour as you can possibly stand it It will effect your taste buds, go brush your teeth gargle with listerine! Anything can to be used as a detourant!

    Girl... we're going to have to do a "no weighing yourself every day" challenge!! Stop it... you fall into the same temptation as I do. Did you know that your body can fluctuate with water weight 1-2 lb per week? Yep... so I am being a drill sargeant here... but you know what's best for you... and eating everything in sight will just make you feel worse later.

    On a brighter note... YOU CAN DO THIS!! Coming for help by journalling this is one step. You know that you are worth it, and you know that you can do it.

    Looking forward to hear a better blog update tomorrow, okay?

    Blessings and hugs, Naomi

    Hi Andina,
    You just experienced why you shouldn't weigh-in everyday. Professional organisations use 7 day period of time (21 meals) to get a correct weight loss period of time. The food we eat, some of it takes more time than other types to digest and when you weigh yourself daily you are feeding your head with a wrong picture and actually abusing your scales. Our weight naturally swings during the week and you obviously hit the wrong day to look, perhaps if you waited longer it may have surprised you in a positive way. The only time it is totally okay to use the scales every day is on maintance as we are reducing calories in our core food to accomodate the extras we re-introduce back into our lifes and it is important to know if we are doing okay or should take a break a day or so before trying the next type of extras... try to avoid weigh-in as it is disturbing your progress "big time" concentrate on your eating habits and don't over do the exercise or the project will eventually hang out your throat and get boring.... kind regards Rena

    Hang in there! I personally weigh myself everyday and I am okay with that. It seems to keep me more on track if I go up a pound. I have read mixed reviews about weighing daily or just weekly. Regardless...don't give up! I had a BAD week last week and I am starting this week with a new found motivation. It happens to everyone! Keep your food choices in check, drink your water and keep moving! You will do great!
