I haven't posted much in the last couple of weeks since the scale didn't seem to budge so I didn't feel that I had much to say about anything on this forum.
I decided to change my eating habits a bit (i.e. balancing out protein, veggies, fruit, healthy fats, etc) over a week ago (I'm really serious about counting my calories lately in an effort to try to lose weight), and have been dong a new exercise program for almost 2 weeks now in a renewed effort to try to bust out of the 170s and reach the 160s.
Last couple of days I've had some difficulty in having a (sorry for being gross) bowel movement. Before that, my weight had gone down in 2 weeks from 170.8 to 188.6, then it started going up and up for each several days that I haven't had a bowel movement. So I accepted that as normal and didn't fret too much about it, deciding to weigh myself tuesday morning instead of my usual monday as a result of not having a bowel movement.
Then I finally had a bowel movement earlier this tuesday morning and I got on the scale after I was finished in the bathroom and the scale read: 171 lbs. I went back to bed then tried the scale again a couple hours later when I really got up and it reads 169 lbs.
I've been really trying to get out of the DANG 170s for over a month now since I reached 170 lbs.
Do any of you guys think this could be my real scale weight (169 lbs)? I just feel discouraged/frustrated since I haven't been able to get a real reading on my scale for several weeks now and haven't had any consistent numbers lately (something that's new for me, since I've never experienced inconsistent numbers for this long of a period)
Advice anyone? Or should I just shut up until next week's weigh in?
