What the Heck ??????

It seems that NOTHING I do makes any positive impact, and I am so ready to throddle about 99 percent of the human race as a result. I got on my Wii fir to do a workout, and I have GAINED 5.5 pounds in 2 days. Now yes, body weight fluctuates every day by as much as 5 lbs, and there is this mythical theory that if you eat less and lose more your body will do something magical called losing weight. ( I am begining to think this phenomonon lives in the real mof unicorns, wingged horses and more). I am doing this, and yet I am gaining weight at a ferightening weight. Since last Saturday, with the ups and downs of the week, I have gained right around 5 pounds. WTF ????

Could it be TOM is comming ? ( I am 50 and in the change, and things are VERY Irregular)
Has something with my hormones gone totally haywire ?
Am I pregnant ?

I really wish I knew. All I know for certain is that entering a weight loss challenge was perhaps the stupidest thing I could have ever done because since I did I have done nothing but gain.

I have sworn off weight loss challenges - they jinx me every time! Whenever I join a challenge, it seems as if I sabotage myself to fall off the wagon.

Please don't concentrate so much on the scale number. It is probably hormones. You are doing great! Don't be discouraged.

Hang In There,

Regardless of what the scale says your eating right and getting healthy. We'd all like to see weight loss but in reality if you think about why you want to loose, it's for your health; to feel good and look good too. I know YOU know this but at times when the scale is our worst enemy sometimes we need reminding.

Wii Mii said something to me yesterday that kinda made me angry, he said if you workout to hard and push yourself to much you will actually gain weight...
HOW CAN THIS BE? I simply do not know, but i'm going to ask Jewels and see if I can find out cause i'm working my butt off and the scales not moving for me either.

I feel your frustration. I've been having difficulties myself this past week and I thought that same thing about joining the challenge. But, I knew I wasn't doing the right things, so my gain was warranted. If you know positively that you are sticking to your program, then don't pay attention to the scale right now and just keep doing what you're doing. Angie says it's 3x and you're out for weighing in, so maybe in light of your struggle, just let her know that you're still in the game, but that you are gonna hold off weighing in for the next 2 weeks. That may relieve some of your anxiety and allow the scale time to catch up with what you're doing! On the other hand, if you feel like you're not doing the right things, maybe try to change things up a bit or refocus by making sure you write down every morsel you eat and make sure you're weighing your food, so you know you have your portions right.

Hang in there; don't quit because you know where that leads. You are strong and you can do this!! I'll keep checkin on ya to make sure you're o.k.!! Hope that helps:)

Could be hormonal. If it continues, you might want to have some tests run. Have a great weekend.
