OK, Ladies.... I could use a pep talk this morning... I had my weekly weigh-in and although I stayed 100% OP, I'm up one pound. :cry: Logically, I know that it's probably just some water weight coming back since this was my first week adding in Phase 2 foods, but it's still disappointing.

I'm going to stay in Phase 1.25 this week to give things a chance to stabilize a bit.... hopefully I'll see a nice loss next week.

Stay the course dearie!

I'm sorry! That is disappointing I am sure! Keep up the good work and i bet you will see a loss next week! Are your clothes fitting any looser? Do you feel better and more energetic? I know it's hard, but try to look for the positive changes you are experiencing.

Thanks, ladies... :hug:

I'm going to hang tough... I really do think I'll have a woosh when I weigh next Monday. My ticker has been changed... :( I definitely liked it better before, but at least I still have less than 100 pounds to lose, :spin: I was so happy when I realized that last week.

Last Monday I did have an NSV when I put on my jeans for the first time since getting back on the beach... they had been sooooooo tight and it had been a real struggle to button them up. They are still snug, but they buttoned right up and were much more comfortable.

Same thing happened to me. Lost it plus more over the next couple weeks. Hang in there!

You will really find yourself going up and down on this diet. Lose, gain a little, lose more, gain a pound. You should weigh, but don't use it necessarily as the ultimate barometer of whether or not your body is shrinking. You should take measurements starting now (I wish I had done it when I first started!), and use your clothes as a guide too. Stay the course, you can do it!
