CHEWYMAMA69,

While a safe weekly weight loss would be 1-2 pounds per week. There will be weeks you don't lose. There will even be weeks you gain ! And that doesn't mean you're doing anything wrong. the weight doesn't magically drop off the minute we decide we need to lose. Remember, you're trying to change habits learned over a life time. That's not going to happen overnight, a week, a month or even a year. Change takes time. Thus the need to be patient with yourself and your body.

You didn't gain the weight overnight. It's not coming off overnight. It's only been four days !! You really do have to be more patient with yourself and your body.

Weight loss is a slow steady process that takes time. Patience, it's a virtue.

Wow...you gave it a whole four days. I assume you put on all the weight in four days? Why else would you be so upset?

This is going to take some time. Keep eating right and exercising and you will see results.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

I'm not sure if you are celebrating holidays this time of year, but I know for me - I never weigh myself the day after a party or family gathering. I went to town on a bowl of Chex Mix yesterday. Excess sodium always adds on a few extra pounds of water rentention. I had some fruit and cereal for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and I'm on my 4th glass of water. If you may have overindulged the last few days, just spend today and tomorrow flushing your system out and check again Friday.

I stopped weighing myself all together.

It wasn't doing me any good. It was more frustrating and discouraged me more than it helped. So I figure, why do something that only hurts!??

I have no idea how much I weigh.

I've been down and miserable lately , but I'm pulling myself together because I'm just starting to realize that I am now back to square 1. When I was eating healthier and going to the gym, I felt SO MUCH BETTER!! even tho I wasn't really losing the weight like I wanted.

My point is:
Keep pushing yourself to do what will make you healthy. You may not always get it right every moment of every single day. But if you STOP caring about your body and what goes into it because you don't SEE the results on the scale...all else will go down hill and you'll never get it right.

Stay off the scale for months at a time, and go by what you feel...not what you see.

Getting it together one moment at a time.

Me too. I weighed myself today and am up 5 FIVE! pounds since my last tracking on 11/30! I'm absolutely miserable (as you sound too!) That's why. Because we are not comfortable overweight. Back to tracking for me! Hang in there. You're doing this because you want to. Because you need to. emoticon emoticon

I had not weighed myself in 2 weeks before joining SP. I THOUGHT I weighed 168 and put that as my start point. I weighed myself today and 170 is my reality. I am only 4 days in and today I am questioning why I am trying again to lose the same weight I have lost over 5 times in my adult life. emoticon
