A gain (again)

Monday, June 24, 2013

Just over 2 lbs.

I am bothered by it.

But not nearly what it would have done to me even 3 months ago. It would have devastated me that all this work the last 23 days and now I have a gain to show for it! But, I'm ok.

I know the biggest culprit is dehydration/ not drinking enough water. For some reason here, if I drink water, but not a great amount, I retain it. And I know I have not been getting the right amount of water, and that's probably all those 2 lbs are is water. But I'm ok.

This is the point where I feel like asking "Where is the real Tracy? What have you done with her?"

I feel secure in the knowledge that the last 23 days have been about creating better habits, lifestyle changes and that while I still have many changes to make, I am still on the right road and I'm not going to let 2 lbs steer me away.

I'm ok.

I'm better than ok.

Mind: blown.

    Don't worry about weight fluctuation. I weigh daily and I can weigh 5# heavier one day than the previous day...the next day just 2. What I watch for is that there is never a steady going up! If four days go by and each day I weighed more...then I check myself...have I drank plenty of water? Have I had too much salt? Am I exercising? Have I taken my thyroid meds faithfully and my other meds/vitamins,etc. If my answers are off....then I correct it quickly and get back on track. If my answers are right on, then I consider it a hormonal time and wait three more days....while eating on the lower end of my range and continuing to exercise. If the upward trend would continue....there is a problem requiring a doctor (for me that usually means my thyroid meds need adjusting). basic point what you know is healthy....through the weight fluctuations...weight loss will eventually come. hang in there!!

    Very good outlook...just keep going and you'll get there...have you measured yourself?? You may have gained but you may have lost inches...

    great attitude- just keep pushing forward- they will go away- it can be so hard to do that but its the overall downward trend over time that counts- and your body is so happy with all the healthy changes emoticon

    If you are working out, you are probably gaining some muscle which will start working for you to burn more calories and fat! Keep up the good work and keep going! You can do it!

    Wow, good for you! I'm up about a pound and a half for no reason and it's driving me crazy. I feel bummed and worked up as if it's all going to come back on (even though I've done nothing wrong and am still strongly focused). It's crazy, isn't it? Hang in there!
