Hi there, just want to share some experience with ladies who panicking and getting discourage when scale stale or showing increase in weight , even though you do all the right things for weight loss.
Jan 18: I weighted 135 lb.
Feb 1: I was 131 lb.
Yesterday I was very busy to cook lunch and dinner and just had pre-cooked / frozen meal (rice with chicken) for dinner, plus 3 pickles in the afternoon, plus I had caned soup at work for lunch, plus I had small salad with “Caesar” dressing….my total for the day was 1,050 cal and I only had 1.5 L of water instead of my usual 3 L.
Result: today in the morning I was 135 lb!!! 4 lb gained overnight!!!
If I would weight myself only ones per week or every 2 weeks and had high sodium food on previous night, like I did, I would assume that over 2 weeks, after doing everything right, I didn’t loose a single pound?! That would discourage me for sure!!!
#1 I am happy I check my weight every day, so when I see this ups on the scale I know that I have to double my water intake, watch very carefully sodium on the label for few days and do not be upset over extra 4 lb.
#2 Salts is not my friend when it comes to loosing weight and I have to stay away from frozen food or caned soups.
