100 lb. Club - Pity party, feel free to join in!

I'm throwing a pity party today.
I feel like everyone time I take a step forward, I take two steps backwards.
I hit a new low (184) a few days ago, yay me, then today I'm up 2lbs. I know that it's just water weight, but it's frustrating and demoralizing.
Yes I've upped my calories since I first started and I've been way laxer (is that a real word???) about everything, but I'm frustrated and pissy.
Why can't weight loss be linear?!?!?!?!?

Go ahead, you can be as pissy as you want!
My weight loss has been very linear. My weigh in chart has been a straight line for a while now :lol3:

We are all entitled to a whiney day now and then, today can be yours Mozzy!

I agree we all need some whiny days, just don't stay there! Set a time limit to whine then go take a walk or something. Tomorrow will be better!!

I'll join in. I reached 195 last week but I'm back up to 198.2 as of this morning. Ugh! I did have a few off plan moments over the weekend but nothing horrible. For example, I had some Hersey Kisses after lunch on Sunday. It's not enough to cause me to gain so I don't know what's going on. I was stuck at 198 for a little over a week and was so happy that I finally got below that number but now I'm back where I started. I leave for a week long vacation on Thursday and am expecting to gain a little bit. I'm going to get right back on track after the vacation but it's a bummer that I already gained when I'm not even on vacation yet. :(

It's your party and you can cry if you want to!
I get it's frustrating...but you are in onederland! I'm so jealous...but very happy for you.

As long as the overall trend is a downward line on the graph, that's linear enough. And, we can be happy that while there are little bumps in the line, it's not a straight upward line -- talk about your negative linears!
Whine away. It's good for the soul.......in limited quantities (just like eating!).

gosh Mozzy! repeat "I lost 60 pounds!" "I lost 60 pounds!" then go put on those cute, way small jeans you posted about and feel better :)

Can I whine about the recent direction of my weekly weigh-in? :^:
The orange dot marks the beginning of my last period, and of course it was a while before I realized there was a reason I needed to stop trying to lose weight. :preg: And don't get me wrong, I'm so happy to finally be pregnant, but I was only 12 pounds away from no longer being obese! I've been doing so well for over a year (as you can see!), and I'm sure part of that was the reason I was finally able to get pregnant. :)
And I feel like I keep going on and on about this, but while I'm still tracking my food and getting exercise in, I'm afraid I'll have trouble getting back on track once the baby arrives. I really have no reason to think otherwise since I've been doing great so far; I guess I keep thinking of my past where I'd be doing well and something would inevitably get me off track. I'd reached my very lowest weight ever earlier this year and am still smaller than I was in high school, but it's painful watching the scale go back up, even though it's temporary and for a very worthy cause. :^:

Also going to whine.
I've been stalled out for months. MONTHS. I haven't had appreciable progress on the scale since the end of January. Couldn't find many inches either. So when I looked at my July 1 progress pics and saw a difference, I immediately decided I was delusional and had a massive melt down. I still have to 'tell' myself that my body is changing and that yoga and other new exercises are stalling out the scale.

Ugh, I want to whine too! Last week, I gained 9 lbs in 5 days. And of course, it's two weeks before my vacation. And I was soooo close to being in the "normal" BMI category. Now I need to concentrate on losing it all over again.
