A 2 lb gain
Friday, July 16, 2010
I am getting a little discouraged. Yesterday, I did not do my WATP, but I ate just under 1,000 calories. It was low carb, I felt full and satisfied. When I weighed myself this morning I was up 2 pounds. This does not seem fair.
I know that the scale is right, because the day before I weighed myself for my team challenge weigh in. Yesterday I weighed myself again because I had a doctors appointment and I wanted to see if her scale matched ours - it does. So this extra 2 pounds is a real live 2 pounds.
I am usually a cheerful person who really tries hard to lose weight. Admittedly part of the reason I finally went to the doctor is because I can't seem to lose weight despite my best efforts.
The doctor did feel a bump on my thyroid. I did have some thyroid problems many, many years ago during college. The doctor did requisition some lab tests. I really hope that there is some reason the weight is not coming off, but right now it's just a bit discouraging.
