I've been actively trying to lose weight for the past 2-3 months, and while I'm definitely making some progress overall, the pattern that's showing up on the scale is really frustrating me. It seems to go like this: I appear to gradually gain weight over the course of about three to three and a half weeks, and then over the course of the following few days, I drop 2-3+ lbs. I know this isn't what's actually happening, but it's very frustrating to only see my weight loss reflected on the scale within a very narrow window of time...and to see it creep up-up-up outside of that time frame!
I suspect it has something to do with my birth control (I take TriNessa, which is generic Ortho Tri Cyclen - 28 day pack), as I generally see my weight loss reflected as I'm finishing one pack/starting another. (Then again, maybe I'm just looking for something to blame and am totally off base?) Regardless, it's driving me nuts! Any thoughts/insights/advice would be very appreciated! (Any at all! The first time I posted this, I didn't get any replies, which was also frustrating :/ )
