Confused :(

Today the scale said 172.4. What? How could I have gained 2 lbs in a day?

I definitely didn't eat anything too bad yesterday either. I had cereal for breakfast, leftover pizza for lunch (yeah, not so good), grapes, then steak, a sweet potato and green beans for dinner, and a fudgsicle later on. NOT 2lbs worth of food.

I don't get it... I'm confused. And a little pissed. I feel like that last week I took "off" screwed me up so bad. Why is it so hard right now? I am working out on the elliptical and making better eating choices and am having nothing to show for it.

What do I need to do? Eat nothing but protein and vegetables this next week?

Daily scale fluctations are nuts...water, hormones, sodium...if you're going to weigh every day then you have to look at the overall weekly average. Day to day is crazy. Don't beat yourself up over day to day weigh ins. Just keep doing the right things.

The body is an amazingly frustrating thing at times. There is simply NO WAY you gained 2 real pounds in a day. What you gained is probably water that will flush out in a day or two.

But the scale - seeing the extra pounds -- yeah that's tough.

Okay. Stop weighing in every day. And stop screwing up with your food. You need to find a good balance, otherwise your hormones will eventually be so out of balance that you will have a hard time losing anything at all.

Start by healthifying one meal at a time, or by eliminating one bad habit at a time. Find out what you can easily do without, and which things you want to hang on to. (And then go and find healthier replacements for the things you want to keep.)

Maybe go over your blog and read the posts from the beginning. That might give you a few clues.

I can't thank you enough for all that you have done for me. About a year ago I my partner split up, we had both made BIG mistakes in our relationship. He ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life. I knew in my heart that he would be the only one to make me happy. I was relieved when I found your email on a site about what you have done. I requested 1 to 2 day casting of the reunite us love spell and within 3days mark company had relocated him back to our hometown where I still lived. We immediately reconnected and move in with each other. Our wedding date is set for Summer 2012. Expect to see your invite in the mail!.thanks to upesaspelltemple@yahoo.com
