I have gained almost 6lbs since starting on this site on June 21st.
It just keeps going up. I feel panicky.
I KNOW I am eating less calories and I KNOW I am making better choices. I just wish I was at least maintaining rather than gaining!
Please don't berate me for my food choices in my log, I know they are not stellar, but you have to understand that they are far and away better choices than I was making in the last Six months (upwards of 2000 cals a day and Mcdonalds twice a day several times a week)! The crazy thing is, I didn't gain any weight in the last six months, until now.
Granted, it was a big cookout weekend, and the scale jumped up 3lbs just after that, so deep down I know that I did not eat an excess 11,000 calories!!
My sodium is pretty much where it has always been and I take my measurements, which have not changed.
I don't really know why I am posting this, as I am on these boards all the time, just reading, so I know the advice. Stick with it, drink your water, make sure you measure, watch your sodium, eat less processed foods etc (and I do those things, subbing yummy salad most days for lunch rather than a whole #13 meal from mcd's, with soda!).
Ugh. I just needed to vent. I know that the time will pass anyway and I don't want it to pass with me doing nothing.. but I at least thought I wouldn't be GAINING. God, I sound like such a whiner! I hate this!!
