I'm really happy that I actually remember to post my weigh-in today lol It's been a struggle trying to lose weight but slow weight loss is better than no weight loss. Here it is:
Starting weight: 198
September Goal weight: 190
Current weight: 195
When I weighed myself this morning I got a little discouraged thinking that I only had gone down three pounds from my start weight in two weeks. But then I realized that I actually went up to 199 this last week and then back down to 195 today. So, that means that I lost two pounds last week, gained three and lost 4...so actually I lost seven pounds...just gained some in between lol So maybe if I can cut out the gaining part I'll be able to lose my goal weight by the end of the month. That would be awesome!
Good luck, everyone!
I would say the gaining part is water fluctuations. But, nevertheless you are going in the right direction. I started two weeks ago (but at 268) and have lost 7 total. I think that water is part of mine too.
Congratulations to BOTH of us!!!!
I have found using different scales can throw you for a lou lou too! I have been on three different set of scales and the last one said I had GAINED 7 lbs. over my beginning weight (logged from MY scales)! That is a 14 lb. difference between what my scales said yesterday and what my daughter's scales said an hour later. I had the same clothes on and hadn't eaten or drank anything in between.
I'll stick with one scales, mine! And check periodically with the Dr.'s scales (which runs about 2-4 lbs more than mine). Don't want to get any shocks like that again. Even though I mentally KNEW that I hadn't GAINED, it was still a shock to see the numbers and a bit discouraging.
