    Well, it's depression day, AKA, weigh in day. I did not eat "anything" other than my diet food. I wanted to binge on anything I could find last night, but I held strong, and my reward was gaining 3pds.

    Oh, that stinks. Don't give up though! You know how to put your head down and keep going, and I believe in you and know you'll see some downward movement next time you weigh in. For the record, my weight always goes up two pounds the week before my period. You might want to see if that might have anything to do with it. Bodies are sometimes weird like that.

  • @CathyRocky: You're right, it isn't good for you. Do you do your own cooking? If you do, then stop salting during the cooking process; salt just before it goes to table, AFTER tasting it. I grew up cooking low sodium and now do it for myself and my boyfriend, and the only things I salt are my homemade bread dough (the gluten needs it) and I add imported sea salt in a light sprinkle to some roasted vegetables, along with cracked black pepper. When you don't use it much, you appreciate it more, I think.

    Yes, I cook from scratch, I love to cook! I've always preferred salty, crunchy snacks to sweets. I caught myself twice today as I was salting my food, so I used less both times.

    HI,

    I would love to join this group. my starting weight was 213 now down to 205, can I still join. I don't want to be kicked out if I go below 200 (wishful thinking) :) This seems like a great group who are in contact on a regular basis, and to be honest, I think that is what we all need to keep us accountable.

    Im about 97 kgs.Losing weight has been hard for me since Ive been getting older,
  • Wednesday update: From 296 to 288! I feel just a little less so, and the way my thighs rub has changed.
    Unfortunately I have a deep muscle spasm. And If I can't get a bra on, I can't go work out. When one of my partners wakes up I'll have them try to rub it out, but I'm the first up, so here we are. (sigh)

    I feel awful, I didn’t change anything from my work outs or what I was eating after my 5 pound loss.... to gain 3 pounds after working so hard this week is really a slap in the face. I want to give up so bad but I won’t... just super discouraged 😓 guess I’ll just have to work harder this week!

    This could be water weight or even bloating. Stress can do it to you also. Please give yourself a break. Make sure you are drinking enough water. Weight yourself at the same time everyday. But even with all of that you can have ups and downs. You can do this!!

    What's everyone eating? I just had a big scoop of homemade fat free hummus with snap peas, peppers, cukes and grape tomatoes, it was delicious 😋! I need something more substantial before too long so a sweet potato and chicken breast are in my near future.
