No, you are not alone. I've finally come to accept that ups, downs, and standstills are all a part of it. I used to get terribly frustrated by standstills and jumps (and even let a jump really get to me as recently as last month), but I'm much better now at looking at the big picture. It'd be nice if it were a straight downward journey, but that's just not how it works, that's not how the body works, that's not how weight loss works, so we just have to relax and roll with it!
Current Attempt (Slow Carb Diet, started July 19, 2013) <> Previous Attempt (Calorie-Counting, 2009)

= 10 lbs lost; = 5 lbs lost:
1. 196 lbs = "Overweight" BMI of 29.8 MET GOAL!!
2. 178 lbs = Lowest Weight in 13 years, BMI of 27.1 MET GOAL!!
3. 164 lbs = "Normal Weight" BMI of 24.9
4. 145 lbs = Goal Weight BMI of 22.0
Stay between 145 lbs and 155 lbs

November 1st I was at 187.5. I am hoping by the end of November that I can be at 182. That will be 10 points off of my BMI (42.2-32.2) and one step closer to no longer being obese!

Still on the up today. Have a feeling November is going to tough for me to stay on plan. Need to find my resolve - it seems to have disappeared!

Sum, could you give the whoosh fairy a nudge my way when she's finished. I haven't seen her for a while and have forgotten what she looks like!!

Am starting month two of my exercise regime tomorrow at 5.30am. Going to be really hard to fit it in. Took my month one weight loss photos though which have given me a bit of inspiration!

Start weight 139
Goal weight 132

Nov 1 138
Nov 2 DNW
Nov 3 141
Nov 4 142

Great to all those dropping down the scales! Some good goals set out November! Good luck everyone....

Back up a pound. I would really like to see the whoosh fairy too. However, I think I need to stop making friends with the sodium fairy.
However, I got up and walked this morning for 2 miles in 35 minutes. Now to go and do a Leslie Sansone You tube video and then do some Yoga. Going to take my new Yoga DVD downstairs and do a workout so I don't here it from the kids about taking away their TV time. Almost all 100oz of water intake done. Tomorrow is my day off so looking forward to getting some house stuff accomplished.

Minneey: Glad to hear I am not the only one getting up at 5:30 to exercise. Friday I will need to get up for 4:00 to get any exercise in.
Kellipa: Happy Belated birthday. That is my son's bday too.
kellyK: I am looking to be no longer obese. It has been a stigma that has been around me way too long.
therecoveringfatchick: First off love the name. I too have that happen on the scale. Frustrating I know. But just as Jacqui said. It is part of live.
Hope everyone has a good night. Off to exercise again.
You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

Down another ¼ pound this morning…

SW: 140.0
GW: 135.0

11/1: DNW
11/2: 139.50
11/3: 139.00
11/4: 138.75

Turtle: I always register a “gain” when I’m up super early…5 or 10 minutes here or there doesn’t matter, but when it’s an hour or more either way, it makes a difference. Not to worry…you’ll be back to 155 tomorrow.

Jacqui: Glad to see you’re moving in the right direction!

Joy: That sodium is a killer…but it’s only temporary.

183StGB: Good luck with your wisdom teeth!

Sue: Sorry you snuck back up a bit…I hope it disappears again soon!

boatingmommy: Aww…after being so good at your sausage dinner…that’s not fair!

Woodstock: I hope tomorrow starts with a 148…

kalijpa: A belated Happy Birthday!

Sum: I hope the whoosh fairy visits you soon and, if you happen to see her, can you ask her to stop by my place after yours! I’ve been losing and gaining the same pound for the past two weeks, despite remaining on plan throughout.

stilettolife & watchout: 2 lbs down so far this month for both of you…way to go!

soon2beskinny: Sounds like you’re doing great on the exercise front!

therecoveringfatchic: I agree with Jacqui. That trend is pretty normal, even though it seems odd.

Rsadler: I hope the whoosh fairy visits you soon!

Learning 2 Live, kellyk and nlauah: Good luck with your November goals!

Minney: I’m finding it is really tough when you get down to the 130’s. I hope the whoosh fairy does her rounds soon!

Sorry I'm chiming in late this month. I haven't met a monthly goal in since June so I'm setting it low this month at 5 pounds.

SW: 117.4 (on 11/4)
GW: 112.4
Every day is a battle, but whatever, I'm scrappy ~Darcey

Each = 5 lbs gone for good!

YES and YES and yes, ups and downs are part of it. Though I said when I started on this forum I would not weigh but just once a week, I started posting on Sum's daily weigh in, and even I was blown away at how much it was. One one day, and I posted it on the other two threads I was posting in, I did a sudden dip to 240 from 248, then right back up to over 252. I was, frankly, a bit elated that the scales dipped to that 240. But I found some kind of anomaly about that weight, and posted it about a week after but for some reason the post did not stick. I will re-post that now. These new scales, which are very nice, and supposed to be very accurate, are susceptable to some sort of electro-magnetic fields. Some days after that 140 weight I had placed the scales in the same spot..... and 140 again. I moved it over a few feet and it went backup to 146....... So that was that sudden drop in weight. (When I post my last weight this month, may I use that spot again for it????) Anyway, the scales read purt much exact same thing except in that spot. So I stay away from that, don't like the disappointment of seeing a 6 lb gain later.

Both my mood and thinking ability and weight has fluctuated dramaticly this past month, I do not like it. Some days I felt like a Zombie. Day before yesterday I almost could not function at all, today I spent working on building a prototype of a new invention I am working on...... Sure hope for some more days like this one.

Anyway, as a good lady friend of mine is fond of saying, "Life is what happens while we make other plans." LOL now ain't that a b*tch ??

Anyway, my weight overall has been dropping, but goes up and down like a yo-yo as it does, and the "highs" and the "lows" both are on a downward slope overall. And despite knowing that, like Jaqui, I also had a hard time with it last month

Hang in there, I see every one of you making progress towards our common goal. to be healthier people who have to go buy a new smaller wardrobe
