I have had many ups and downs. Please don't give up. It's not uncommon to have a gain even when you are doing great. You'll reach your goal. It may take a little longer than you would like but you'll get there.

I hear where you are coming from.. Don't give up. Your body may have needed those extra calories to jumpstart your metabolism. As long as that extra small fits, you have made a goal (you are so close don't give up now, you will only be disappointing yourself)

this week's weigh in was so disappointing. i was shopping Saturday and bought my first size extra small top (since high school-6 years ago). i have really stepped up my activity level. i lost 19 lbs with out any exercise, i am 2.6 lbs away from my lifetime goal. I worked out 5 days the last two weeks and 4 days the week before that. I weighed in Sunday and was up 1.4lbs?!?!? so frustrating. it was totally unexpected.
its so hard because i am so stuck on this number. i know people say muscle weighs more then fat but i am just so discouraged. I have 55 days before i go on vacation and just really want to be at my goal by then so i can finally say "i did it!"
basically i am just complaining. i totally did not track yesterday and ate what i wanted and just soaked in my own sorrows haha but I am back on track today and worked out again this morning. i guess that is a good sign i didn't quit but i am hoping for a great weigh in this week otherwise i dont know what i will do.
has anyone else experienced this? seeing a gain when they increase their workouts close to goal?
