I did something stupid this morning. I got on the scales when it wasn't my weigh day. I weight myself every Sunday morning, but this morning I couldn't resist. And I'm 80.3kg now! I thought I was out of the eighties zone for good, but I've gained 700gr. That's almost a kilo :(
I'm scared that when Sunday comes around, I won't have lost any weight. Or even worse, gained some weight back.
I haven't been cheating. I've stayed well in my calorie count and have been running three times a week. I don't do much strength training so I don't think I've been building muscles or anything.
Should I just ignore it and weigh myself on Sunday? Or should I see this as a warning and adjust my eating and exercise before my next weigh day?

I just felt like I was doing so well, and now I'm discouraged because of the stupid number on the scales. I wish it didn't bother me so much, but it does.

    Ignore it . I find that i generally weigh more during the week if i weigh myself. I find that im normally more tensed up during the week but once i have a good sleep in on the weekend i weigh less than i would have on a thursday morning. If you know you have been eating within your calorie range and done the exercise then thats all that should matter. Stress less my dear. You are doing wonderfully. Dont let a set of scales define your efforts for the week.

    Ignore it!!! IGNORE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And forget about it... you ARE doing well, I know that feeling of fear and panic when your scales say something different than what they should say.... yet there are many reasons for it... maybe you drank more water, maybe you are building muscles and loosing fat... muscles are heavier yet take up less space and running builds muscles as well, not only strength training!! You're toning getting into shape... you are doing something good to your body no matter what those stupid little numbers say... go on as you were, continue eating healthy, continue running and show that stupid scales that you don't care (I am talking to myself here). WE CAN do it!!! We ARE getting healthier and fitter.. we are sleeping better... seeee... so many changes to the better... and we don't want to loose weight anyways, as we don't want to ever find it again!!! You go girl!!!!! And put that scales away until Sunday, don't stress about it, don't let it make you feel bad.... I'm with you... we're in this boat together... and if you're feeling down, go out for a run, you know, that 25min or 30min run and show that scales how fit you are!!!! emoticon

    Just wait and weigh on your usual day. I have found if I weigh two days in a row, I can have up to a lb. fluctuation! I'm never sure if it is me or the scale! LOL But I know if it is once a week I usually have lost!!! Just be sure to follow your plan and drink your water.
