it's gotta be water

Monday, June 30, 2008

Little disappointed today, got on the scale and was up 7 lbs.
Started the provera 3 days ago. Hopefully it's just water gain. I've done so well with keeping within the nutrition limits and walking 45-70 mins a day.

    Hey don't let the scale be your tell all to if you are succeding or not! There are a lot of other signs that will tell you this besides the scale. Take your measurements and keep tabs on them as they are big indicators as well. The scale can be ones worse enemy at times. Did you now that you can gain weight but loose fat at the same time. Check around a little and question yourself how often you should climb on the scale!

    Good luck!

    I drink 10-12 8oz glasses a day. I did add sodium and fiber to the tracker, figuring with those 2, I probably covered my bases. I guess next I'll start the strength training. Didn't want to try to change eveything at once.

    Question for you. How much water are you drinking? You need to get in at least 8 cups a day. I know that you are just starting out but you can start off slow with the water. Start with 4 cups a day then increase your water after a couple of days. There is a thread that Mrswiggly posted about water check it out.

    Don't get discourage you are just starting out you will see a change soon. Just keep up the good work on meeting your nutrien goals. I hope you have included sodium in your tracker because to much will make you retain water.
