Where Did My Lost Lbs Go?

Friday, November 16, 2012

I lost 7 lbs in the past 15 days, but now up 3 for absolutely no reason. Makes me wonder why I even bother. It's too much work for very little return.

    The scale is the LAST one to know when you've lost weight.

    Don't give a scale any power. YOU have the power to make your life healthier, more fit and much more rewarding. Even your internal organs know more about what's happening to your body than a scale does.

    Notice how your clothes fit, when your ring gets loose, when it's easier to tie your shoes, when you can race up the stairs without puffing, when your face looks different, when you fit into the movie theater seat more comfortably. All of those non-scale victories are more valid than a scale!

    You can do this, and you be so glad you dedicated yourself to improving your life. emoticon Go for it....Go determined & succeed!

    Here's the deal...never trust the scale...NEVER, EVER, lies and laughs wickedly when we believe the numbers it spits out! I've learned to weigh myself once a week, same day, basically same time. But I STILL can not break the step on, step off, step on, step off...step on for ONE last time to REALLY make sure the numbers synch...they usually don't and then I'm in a ....which one was really...the true one...quandry. See...scales are evil! emoticon Trust the way your clothes fit...or your tape measure...much more user friendly! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    A very important thing I learned from many Sparkers Is that the scale will be all over the place but if you are on plan your average weight will definitely be going down. So I have become tolerant of the fluctuations.

    If we allowed ourselves to really go insane when such a wild fluctuation happens....we would all be feathering the cuckoo's nest!

    Weight fluctuations of these small amounts drive me crazy. That is why I refuse to watch the scale. I will just go by how my clothes fit.
    I hope you have an awesome weekend, my friend!

    I figured it had to be water weight. There's a goo chance you had too much sodium. Just have patience.

    Don't give up because of weight fluctuations. You're still down 4 pounds in about 2 weeks. That is still excellant.

    Plus or minus 4 pounds is considered normal weight fluctuation as fluid moves inside and outside of cells. You might have gotten into some salt or something.

    Those swings are part of this, hope you hang in. And, yes, on those four pounds! Meanwhile the hardest part of this change is patient persistence. One step at a time... emoticon

    That may have been more of a fluid retention weight gain. Keep up the good work!
