How Do Measurements Go Up When You Didn't Cheat At All?

Monday, February 11, 2013

Hi Everybody,
I'm soo confused right now and it's bothering me soo much still so now I have to write about it or I feel I may do some Emotional Eating and I soo don't wanna mess up all my good work soo far! So I weigh myself every Monday and also do my Measurements! Well my Weight was the same and My Measurements were not:
Omg here's the difference from last Monday to this Monday UGH!
Right Arm 16"
Right Leg 26"
Middle S 46"
Waist 48"
Hips 54"
Neck 15"

Right Arm
Today 16"

Right Leg
Today 27" up 1

Middle S
Today 47" up 1

Today 50" OMG up 2"

Today 54"

Neck 15"

So I am sooo frustrated I didn't cheat No Sweets, No Chips, Just Eating Healthy and Working Out Everyday and this is my Results! What's more Frustrating is that I bought the Sparkpeople Cookbook so I would learn more Healthier New Recipes to Eat!
God I feel like Screaming Help Me Anyone!
I would love some answers please!

    Water can make me swell as well as my allergies. Some foods aggravate my body. Muscle can make an area larger as well as doing some of them wrong, such as sit ups. There are so many things that can interfere with our progress that is out of our hands. I understand that is can be frustrating but somehow we much move on. Hopefully next time the measurements will be lower as you would expect them to be.

    My guess is you measured in slightly different spots each week. It's easy to put the tape higher or lower and mess up the measurement.

    Don't panic! First of all, I'm not sure if weekly measurements are the best idea. Secondly, if you are anything like me - the measuring is with a a roll out measuring tape and probably not all that accurate. I have had some weeks where I gained weight but after another week or so it drops back down. Is it PMS time? That can have you retaining water like crazy! Have you been exercising more? I sometimes hit a slowdown with weight loss if I increase my exercise or go from not regularly exercising to working out a lot.

    Keep hanging in there and try not to get discouraged. I know it's hard but you are doing well. Results can be wonky but you are already doing better than if you went back to old habits. emoticon

    Have you checked your sodium intake? Sounds like you might be retaining water? Any chance it's hormonal?
