Well pooey!!

I am away in Oshawa and thought I'd still attend a meeting since I was hoping to hit my 10% loss. Well so much for that!! I frickin GAINED 1.6 pounds!!! *insert sob* I don't know if it's because it wasn't my normal weigh-in place (even though I am sure WW would say their scales are all calibrated the same...), or if it's because I lost so much last week because I hadn't eaten in days due to my strep throat. I dunno. Maybe it was because I have not been drinking my water and didn't write down in my tracker since I forgot to get one last week. Needless to say I was STUNNED when she told me I had gained. OMG!! But, I will not let this get me down, I would be kidding myself if I thought this wasn't a JOURNEY and will have ups and downs. (Funny how the "downs" get you up and the "ups" get you down when you are talking about weight loss!!)

I still struggle with eating all of my Points and I think that is part of my problem. I also just cannot get that "healthy oil" in!! I am looking forward to next week when the kids are back in school and I can get into more of a routine again - including going to the Y!!

Aw I'm sorry Nancy. I'm sure it's just the dumb scales. Yep, that's it.

Hi Nancy,

It's hard - but there are so many factors. I gain about 5 pounds in water weight right before my period (I know - too much information) - I'm like the blowfish on Nemo - just burst out like a balloon - I hate it and only wear yoga pants or my bigger pants during those days.

Keep up the great work! It really will work and one week you'll find you've lost 3 or 4 pounds when you haven't done anything different!
