seriously, how many times have you said that since the start of your journey? lol.
I know it is impossible to go down 3lb in one night. So thats why I think my scale has got to be broke.
But in the event that it is not, I have a little back information that could sort of make me think there is a chance it is really my weight and that the scale is not broke.
For about 2 weeks I was stuck at 206, nothing I did I could get under that. After about a week of extreme frustration, I went crazy and put myself into crash diet mode. Somthing I am aware is a very unhealthy path to go down. I was hardly eatting. I would have maybe an apple for breakfast, some broccoli and corn for dinner and maybe some peanut butter later that night (only because I thought it looked bad to only have fruit and veggies in the day), With about 2 glasses of water. I was so scared to even drink water because I didnt want the water weight. I was getting very obsessive with my dieting, weighing myself after I put an ounce of water or food inside my body, and weighing myself to see if I could eat. It was really bad and it was scaring me as well as others in the house. Needless to say that clearly was not working because a week later I was still at 206. I am very grateful that I caught myself early on and it didnt turn into somthing worse and long lasting. It's even more scary now looking back at how bad it was, even if it was just a week.
So on Feb 27th I started packing the calories on and protein (which for some reason always seems to help), and pretty much was eatting how I used to, before I went into the crash dieting (not the bad eatting I used to do, the healthy eatting) . 2 days later I woke up and had dropped 3lb somehow over night. I was hoping for 205 and didnt even see that, I saw 203. I couldnt believe it. Therefor am convinced my scale is broke lol. If it is not, I guess the whole "you have to eat to lose weight" thing really is true.
I then weighed myself this morning and was down another pound. 202. I would really like to believe that is my real weight, as I am just so close to being under 200. But I find it so hard to believe one day I could be 206 the next 203. It just doesnt seem possible to me. I am getting so close to the biggest milestone of my life, it would just be the biggest set back and let down if I found out it wasnt accurate.
Has anything like this ever happened to anyone? For the time being, I'm going to enjoy thinking that I am 202 :-)
I always try to keep these short, but that was crazy long and it never seems to work lol. Sorry for my rambles.
