I know we're not supposed to weigh in every day (and this is probably why!) but it's a habit I haven't broken yet. Two days ago I was down to 232 (five pounds down from my highest, three down from my start here a month ago) and I was feeling pretty good about that. Yesterday, I was back up to 233 and thought, well, it's water weight or something, fluctuations are normal.... and this morning I was looking forward to seeing that pound gone but instead I'm up to 234! I could almost cry!
I'm not working out as hard as a lot of people I've seen on this site, but I've done at least *something* every day this week. I've tracked all my food and hit my "marks" every day and not gone over. I can't figure out why I'm losing so much more slowly than a pound a week, and why my weight has rebounded this way. Granted, I don't totally trust my scale, but it's all I've got to go by and I'm sure whatever its glitches may be (I think it's seven pounds low compared to my doctor's scale) it's at least consistent from one day to the next.
In my distraction (I've also lost a new favorite necklace - in my house? How can something just disappear?) I forgot to bring my breakfast to work. In fact, I realize now that I forgot my snack too. I've got a salad, plus two oranges and a Lean Cuisine I didn't eat yesterday, so it's not like I'll starve, but I miss my yogurt and Trader Joe's version of a Fiber-One "candy bar" snack.
I need to turn the day around so it doesn't keep going downhill this way! *BLEARGH!*
