Hi, NAKEDBACON !

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. The fact is, you are going to see many UPs and well as downs as you progress.

Why ?

Most times, those ups are nothing more than water retention. Ever notice your weight goes up during TOM ? Most women tend to "gain" weight during their menstrual cycle. Is that a fat gain ? Nope, it's nothing more than a temporary water weight gain that passes in a few days. I can easily gain or lose as much as 3-4 pounds in a day because of a shift in my water weight.

It's also been very hot and humid across much of the US. If you are the least bit dehydrated, your body will hold onto water.

It really isn't unusual to see a loss one week and again the next. Don't let that freak you out. it really is normal. Remember, you didn't gain the weight overnight, it's not coming off overnight. So, expects these kinds of scale fluctuations as you progress through your weight loss journey.
