Good week - maybe not

Thursday, January 18, 2018

Hubby and I joined our 12 week community weight loss challenge at the health department. I had my first weigh in and was surprised. Not pleasantly surprised!
I weighed myself at home on Wed. with a loss of 1.5 lbs. I thought when I weigh today I would have a loss. Nope! I gained 1/2 pound. I had a very good week eating healthy and exercising.
A lot of explanations went through my head: wonder what I ate that had so much sodium last night? or Must be water retention.
My body is reacting differently to weight loss than before. I have accepted that fact - I guess. I won't give up and tomorrow starts another week for the 12 week program.
(Hubby weighs in tomorrow. We will see how he does!)

    You are very lucky to have your husband with you on your weight loss journey. My husband isn't interested and really doesn't care about his weight and it makes it very difficult.

    The bodies react to different things as we eat each day. I have scratched my head so many times trying to figure it all out! emoticon
    At least you are doing better than me! Of course, throw in a vacation of not so good eating and taking steroid medication and what do you get=6 pound gain! UGH! emoticon
    emoticon emoticon Never give up!! Proud of you and your husband for doing this! Hope all goes well with it! Thanks for commenting on my blog, by the way. Really appreciate your support! You are an awesome friend! emoticon
