Is that possible?
So my normal weigh-in day is Sunday but I was feeling so good yesterday I thought I'd weigh in a day early. My scale said I lost 4 lbs - 4 whole lbs. I was ecstatic. I didn't log it, though, because it wasn't really my true day to weigh in.
I try to do one low-cal day and one high-cal day per week to keep my body guessing. Yesterday was my high-cal day. So last night I ate thin crust cheese pizza and a salad.
This morning I weigh in and I gained 2 lbs since yesterday. 2 lbs? Is that possible? Needless to say I'm a little disappointed because I've worked so hard this week.
Plus my hip measurements aren't going down at all. I've lost 5 inches in my waist but nothing in my hips. How can that be???
I'm not upset at the 2 lbs - ANY poundage lost is wonderful but going from being ecstatic to today, well, it's a tad disheartening.
Could it be muscle gain? Gee, I sure hope so. I don't want to feel disgusted at myself for eating pizza last night. I've been so good with my eating habits this whole month.
Anybody have any advice, I'd love to hear it.
