ME?? Feeling very discouraged lately. I was 152lbs over 3 weeks ago and now I am up over 156lbs and I don't know why. I am sticking to under 2000 calories a day with a number lower than 1800 if I don't work out. I am eating very very healthy food with the exception of a small bowl of no sugar added low fat icecream a few nights a week. Almost no alcohol as well. I know it could just be hormones but for me it's hard to tell. I don't have periods anymore (because of the type of birth control I am on, haven't had one since I got pregnant with my 3 year old) so I don't know what it going on there. I have had a migrain headache the last 2 days which I use to get every month when I had my period so I am guessing my body is doing something, but 4 pounds???? I am trying really hard not to lower my calorie intake because I don't think that is the answer but GEESH!!! It's driving me crazy

Eric, is that is fantastic, keep up the good work.<br><br>
Julie, fingers crossed!<br><br>
Kristine, hang in there, you are doing the right things so the weight will come off.<br><br>
Me down 2lbs for 9lbs total since January. I didn't really try to lose this week, just focused on eating more veggies, Go figure.

Down 2.4!!!!!! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I have been religious about writing down every single thing (point) I eat and it's obviously working.<br><br>
Kristine: It's probably just water weight, calm down. Trust what you've been doing the way you trust your training.<br><br>
Kate: <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Do I really have to say anything? 2 pounds in one week is a great loss in my book!!! Awesome.

I'm at 235 this morning, but I'm waiting it out this week, it'll be down.. coming back from vaca, let's just say I suspect my bowels are happy to be home <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> Sorry if TMI!<br>
K - could just be sodium and/or water retention. Give it time... a bounce back very common.<br>
Eric - <img alt="notworthy.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/notworthy.gif"> You Rock Dude <img alt="headbang.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif">!<br><br>
Back from vaca.. minimal to no travel until Alcatraz... good workout today... I'm regaining steam!<br><br>
I just realized... 1 month until my first tri of the season!

OK, since I can't track my hormones very well and I have only been weighing myself regualrly for the last 3 months is it common to vary up to 6lbs in a day? I had been discouraged because I had been gaining weight over the last 1-2 weeks. Yesterday I was 156.7 and this morning I was 150.9? Could that really have been all water or hormone weight? Trust me, I am not complaining, just trying to figure out how my body works.

Kristine: Yes, that can happen. The other thing that will happen to me is I may lose 1 pound one week, then the next week stay the same, then the next week 2 pounds. Sometimes it takes a week or two for my body to register a loss. It's very frustrating especially when I am following and staying EXACTLY on plan.<br><br>
But I have been looking at my weight loss tracker from 2003 when I lost 22 pounds, so I know what to expect. You are doing so great! I can't wait until I hit the 150's and you'll be hitting the 140's anytime now! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Hey - nice job everyone. Kate and Julie - you guys are doing awesome!! Eric, that's amazing!! And, Kristine, so are you - hang in there, even when it's frustrating, you're still doing everything right!<br><br>
I completely forgot to weigh myself after my swim - yapping with the girls in the locker room, and then hurried back to work. So, I'll check in on Monday. Which means I have to be good this weekend. But, I have an 8-mile run, and a 45-mile bike planned, so there is some margin of error, right??!

Beth: I love the long rides and long runs....I am following WW and you get a certain number of points each day but you can earn additional points by exercise.....let's just say I take advantage of that!!!

K - I gained 14lbs one day. I about peed my pants. Actually, I needed to, 12 was gone in 2 days. This was after a particularly grueling weekend w/ lots of high-sodium drinks. My body just retained EVERYTHING. And I'm a DUDE, cannot imagine what would happen to one of you gals! <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

I guess to clarify, are you all posting your losses as individuals or is this a team competition of some sort? I'm trying to lose 20lbs so I'd love to join you if I could.

Everyone's just posting their own loss - there's no competition. It's just to support each other and add that little extra motivation of telling others how you're doing!!<br><br>
I suck. Pretty much stuck at the same weight. I've been good this week with taking a packed lunch to work, I gave up Coke (and suffered the caffeine withdrawal headaches) and it's not helping. Hopefully if I stick at it there'll be a change - I've been tending to alternate a good week with a bad week lately!

Had to dig this thread up from the back page just to report - no loss or gain - holding steady at 128. That's okay, given that I discovered organic, no PHO vanilla cream cookies at the grocery store Friday evening. - no PHO doesn't mean no calories, that's for sure!

I have been on vacation and I am scared to get on the scale!<img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"> Home now, but I ate like crapola all week. I did walk about a zillion miles (at least it felt like it) at Disneyland/California Adventure though! Sodium/retention will be my enemy after eating out so much.
