    Courtney’, evaluate your plan. To many carbs, exercise, not enough water, menstruating , poor elimination all can contribute to your results. Assess and adjust and move forward. My physical therapist always reminded me, I did not gain the excess weight in a day, week or month. Keep it slow and steady. (((Hug)))

    * Diet to eat more protein and healthy non starch carbohydrates - still to many carbs
    * Exercise like I mean it - yes
    * Joyful acts learn to meditate and be kind to others
